They say Karma's a BITCH. (I know, who's "they" right?)
I say - Karma's BULLSHIT.
Sure, I am well aware this is an unpopular opinion. But this is my blog and I can say whatever I want on it. (freedom of speech and blah blah blah) So this is an unpopular opinion because the mainstream pseudo-science enthusiastic crowd would love to believe that people get what they deserve and that there is some moral code to the 'universe.' Most people I know would rather live in a world of moral justice that is superior to our actions. Fuck it, I would rather live in a world like that. But I don't. I live in a world where: NO, what comes around DOESN'T always comes back around, and sometimes bad things happen to GOOD people, and yes, some things actually happen totally randomly and NOT for a reason.
But don't be fooled.... if you think I am dark or negative with my 'Karma's Bullshit' outlook, bear with me some more: I choose to live in world of moral responsibility, while also having curiosity to find opportunities for growth in everything, yes, even in BAD things that happen. Does that make me delusional? It can. At times.
But at least I am not delusional enough to think I don't have to hold myself or anyone else accountable to our own actions.
People who follow the 'Karma's a bitch' model, tend to rule out others' bad behavior as 'they'll get their way, karma will take care of them, don't worry about it' or even - 'karma's a bitch' believers could potentially think that their morality is just even when it's not. So, for example - you got away with stealing once? Oh, well then - karma doesn't apply for you. your are SPECIAL. (ah the curse of 'special', don't get me started on THAT...)
Believing in karma conveniently takes off our responsibility for our own moral justice code, with the disguise of some pure spiritual shanti-babble. NO, there is no moral code to the universe. (or at least there is no evidence of that - you know, that good ole' thing called 'science'!? Look it up karma people!)
Believing in karma - is no different than believing in a bearded old man sitting on the clouds dictating who is good or bad.
RECLAIM your own moral code, 'cause karma? Karma is BULLSHIT.
