My friend asked me, "Do you believe in karma Pete?"
"Yes I do."
"So, if I pinch you, then I’ll get pinched back. Is that karma?"
There are so many different ways people live their lives. Religion is one thing that some of us holds very dearly, and for some other it is bullcrap.
Karma is like.. the main fundamental principle that I live my life by. So, what do I see in it?
The thing is right now, if my life has always been like this and will continue to be this way, I wouldn’t see the point of karma. I can see why some people don’t see the point – the effects are certainly not immediate. If I wasn’t in a temple, if I didn’t become a monk, I probably wouldn’t have thought so highly of the Buddha and his teachings. It’s just wondrous the way my life has come thus far. I’m not satisfied with it in any case, but the path that I’ve walked through, the things I’ve been blessed with… It’s just wonderful. It’s a blessing. There’re many storms along the way, but hey… life’s not one dimensional.
