Is karma working too slowly for you?

Has any wrong been done to you and you’re a firm believer in what goes around, comes around?

I’m having trouble seeing karma, because she’s a chameleon.

sometimes I’ve been there to see it or hear about it, sometimes not, but I rest assured it will.

Given the day’s events at “that other site” I’d say karma is right on time.

I don’t think karma ever works for me. I mean, it could just be really slow, but I’m about to give up on it. Seriously, I should have everything I’ve ever wanted by now.

I don’t believe in karma.

nursey's avatar

Yes…both good AND bad Karma seem to be a bit too slow for my liking.
Good to see you Zack

Well it is working both ways these days! Wish it would make up its mind! ROFL!

Yes; it appears so . However; I look around and see that there are those so much worse off than i am and I have to believe that KARMA is actually working for me….

Karma is not a universal justice system; it means that your actions will have a consequence, which will have a consequence, which will have a consequence, etc. Karma should be viewed more as a net then a cycle because consequences spread in the same way.

If you’re mean to someone you may put them in a bad mood, in that mood they will probably be of bad temper and be equally mean to the people around them and put those people into bad moods and so it goes on. Smile and the world smiles with you

But that isn’t really the point of the question so I will say, yes I believe in karma, but it doesn’t always have effect.

Sorry, I seemed to have gone on a little bit of a ramble about karma!

I don’t need it to work in a set amount of time. I know that it does work regardless…we don’t know when those consequences will come up but they will sometime. Knowing that certainty is enough for me.

I’m a firm believer in karma. You just have to be patient.

I don’t even believe it exists. If it does, it’s an indirect chain of events linked together to familiar definition of everyday mundane events.
It’s easy to say it’s real after it’s happened, anyways. Someone who has wronged you gets wronged-it could be karma or just…them getting wronged.
Association is the key word I think, and nothing else. I don’t think any divine force is making it turn.

That said, yeah it’s too slow. Damnit! *Shakes fist at karma’s general direction.”

Sometimes it seems like it takes forever for “what goes around” to “come around” but sometimes I am able to see it and it’s very satisfying.

@AuntieEm Which other site?

SeventhSense's avatar

You have a limited understanding of karma.

JLeslie's avatar

I hope Karma is real, but I doubt it is.

faye's avatar

Karma is not so much about this life as what kind of life you’ll have next time. And it may be slow but it grinds exceedingly fine. More than ‘coming around’ is how you deal with whatever is in your life now.

AuntieEm's avatar

@colliedog – The site which shall not be named is Answerbag, lol.

HumourMe's avatar

I think it’s safe to say karma isn’t working at all.

The Dali Lama is the Dali Llama because of countless generations of merit and beneficial karma. Yet he is excommunicated from his country by a despotic fascist type regime. Is he suffering from bad karma? Is karma not operating correctly? The complexities of karma is not common sense or petty ego concerns but a balancing interconnected web of complexity far beyond the individual.
