Do You Believe In Karma?

9 Mar

Recently, news stations ran a story about a United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent who got caught stealing from airline passengers.

When they interviewed him, he had ZERO remorse. He basically said he didn’t feel he got paid enough, and since everyone at the TSA was stealing, it was okay.

That’s shocking, especially if you believe in Karma.

Karma is basically the belief that your thoughts and actions create a “force” that helps shape the future.

In other words, if you do good things, you will build up positive energy and good things will happen to you. Conversely, if you do bad things, then bad things will happen to you.

Countless people believe in Karma and often cite this when something good happens to a good person or something bad happens to a bad person.

Many people make life decisions based on Karma and do good things because they believe good things will come into their life as a result.

Well, here is another take on Karma you may like…

Instead of making decisions and doing things based on what you think you might get back, why not simply do things because they are the right things to do?

Why not be nice to people because you should be nice?

Why not help people because you should help people?

If you have the opportunity to steal from an airline passenger’s bags, you don’t. It doesn’t matter how much money you make or do not make. It doesn’t matter how many others are stealing.

You know right from wrong.

Is Karma real? Maybe. Maybe not. That’s not important. What is important is that we all do the right things, and we do them for the right reasons.

If Karma exists, well, that’s one heck of a bonus!
