Karma is bullshit

Recently I read about this lady from China who died from thirst and starvation as she was trapped in a lift. Apparently, the maintenance people didn’t bother to check if anyone was inside before deactivating everything and leaving for their Chinese New Year holidays.

It was also reported that there were scratch marks on the interiors, a sign of her trying to desperately get out.

Of course, this disturbed me to no end, like what the fuck man?

These facts were reported. But did anybody bother to find what kind of person she was? Not really. That’s something only her family and friends would know.

She probably does have family and friends, and that means she was a decent person, somebody who was trying to live.

Does it matter then, if she was good or bad person?

I don’t think it fucking mattered at all.

In fact, it doesn’t matter at all for anybody.

That’s the scary thing about life: Regardless of how good or bad a person you are, you’re powerless in the grand scheme of things.

You can’t control everything.

Innocent people can hurt.

Bad people get seemingly rewarded.

Children are born to simply suffer and die.

Life is a mystery. That is a fact.

Is karma real? Or something we tell ourselves just to make sense of the world, like, “Oh it’s okay. I believe in karma. He’s going to get what’s coming to him.” I’ve heard this bullshit tons of times.

How would you know? Are you going to be there to see your wrongdoer suffer? Are you going to ‘use’ karma in the name of revenge?

Or is just wishful thinking?

I think it’s wishful thinking. I think karma bullshit.

You can’t know everything.

Life isn’t a feel-good movie where the good guy eventually gets rewarded while the bad guy finally suffers or die.

Maybe… stop deluding yourself?

You can’t filter reality. Life has its ups and then it has its downs. You’re going to be happy sometimes, and then you’re going to be sad or angry sometimes. And then, sometimes life becomes unfair while sometimes you gain some windfalls, all for reasons you cannot ever see.

That is life. This is balance.

You don’t need the idea of karma to feel like your wrongdoer will get what’s coming or that you’ll be sufficiently rewarded one day.

You just need to let go of shit.

You need to focus inwards and into your life so you can work on the things that matter most.

You need to stop giving a fuck about the bad guys because they don’t matter.

You need to stop worrying for the world as if it’s your responsibility.

You need to make the choice to be happy since you’re going to die anyway.

Life is for you to enjoy. Remember that.

    You made the mistake of using the massively misunderstood concept of karma that the west has been using for this article. Would like to link you to a video on YouTube thar explains it better.

      So what ???Karma is not ultimate truth anyway. I believe human can reincarnate but no one force reincarnation anyway. Karma is distorted version of cause and effect taken from tips of manisfestation recipe. It’s not even universal cosmic law but only logical in Eastern religion and New Age Religion hippie. I completely understand but what if I don’t it in my life ? I had a choice for that. I knew real truth of karma much more than you do. Its a method so we can’t liberate ourselves with false notion we need to climb spiritual hierarchy . No offence to Eastern Religion but you got shocked when you read and why i no longer lightworker and other resources. Actually, you are the who get brainwashed with so called eternal truth. Writer didn’t mean Eastern Religion but new age hippie. I don’t care if you believe or not and I didn’t give a fuck about any flawed Eastern Religion and stop treating it the ultimate truth. People had their own spiritual path and who know if they born into universe with no karma to solve. Karma is maya and time loop deception to keep divine spark trapped in time essence and 3d universe and even though you solve it there are more more karma experience to solve the best thing just ignore it and get a life. Karma Philosophy work for you but maybe not for others. And Eastern Religion just philosophy why on earth all creatures on earth should treat it as ultimate truth. Sorry,it is only logical in your belief just as Greek god only logical to Greek and Allah only for Islam.

    I honestly believe that I am haunted by sods law. E.g I’ve worked for 24 years and don’t own a penny, Il take my T-shirt off and the sun will go in, even by something new and next day bloom same price newer model.

    This article has helped me to start shoveling bulshitt out my system.

    The next time I’m too hot to wear my shirt, I’ll bless the cool cloud that turns when I remove it.

    It is bullshit, it always was.
    If you believe in the magic, supernatural force of karma you should also believe in god, ghosts, UFO, afterlife etc.
    There is only chaos. Anything can go, you can get lucky, or you don’t being good doesnt give you any chance of having a reward, being an asshole doesnt mean you will get cancer, you might, incidentally, and you more likely to get the best out of life being an asshole these days, so karma should be busy and it doesnt look like.
    Some great kind people gets through horrible shit all their life, some nastiest people get perfectly fine and happy til the end.
    Some children are born to soon die, or suffer a slow and painful death.
    Politicians steal and manipulate, yet they live full rich lives and get lots of cash.
    Karma is stupid, there is no regulating force, only randomness and the luck you force to have.
    Its so stupid I dont even know why I bother replying.

      Sorry for my poor english.

      Why the kind people always being bad-luck, get terminated diseases and die soon, while the awful, stupid suckers always get rich, get famous, live long and make this world even freaking worse?

      God, karma and justice only appear in fiction.

      Look at the innocent children with cancer in hospital, this is the real world, real law of karma/nature.

      No justice, no mercy, but just chaos.
      Evils prosper and the goods suffer most.

      If hell exists, then this world should be hell.
