Karma Exists Regardless Of Perception
Rebuttal to Humphreys' Karma, Dharma and BEing
by Karma Realist - 3rd November, 2012
I have a rebuttal regarding your Karma comment listed in the 4th paragraph.
You stated that "Karma is a perception of subconscious guilt. It is only an energy so long as it is Observed."
I would ask you to consider the current global and economic status. Some countries such as the United States, Norway, Germany, etc. have plenty of resources and do not face poverty or current wars. However, other countries like Zimbabwe and Somalia are mired in poverty and corruption. Countries like Syria, Libya, and Lebanon have constant wars resulting in deaths and loss of dwellings.
Are all of these situations random? Or do you believe karma maybe involved? When you or I entered this world, what gave us the privilege to be in a Western nation versus Somalia or Zimbabwe?
I believe that karma is the law and definitely does exist, regardless of perception.
In regards to the Cause and Effect explanation of the act of just BEing, what would stop any of us from just taking everything in our path? If there was no cause and effect to consider, everyone would simply take any money, houses, resources, food, lives or anything valuable with no consequence to consider.
If you look at most major religions or spiritual teachings, they all have one thing in common: common code of conduct. The Ten Commandments from the Bible, code of conduct verses in the Quran, code of conduct teachings in the Book of David, Buddha Tripitaka, etc. all explain the Cause and Effect and what could happen if these simple rules are not followed.
In conclusion, I believe that the Cause and Effect explanation is more than just BEing. Karma exists whether an individual is aware of its existence.
