Instant Karma
Anita Sharpe on Life

The first thing I saw when I spotted my car in the parking garage tonight was my crushed bumper. Then I saw the note on my windshield from the guy who had backed into me. When I called to thank him for taking responsibility, he said, 'Maybe the karma will come back to me sometime.'

I believe that. What do you think?

I believe in karma. Absolutely! Think positive and good things will happen.

Hi Anita,

Yes--I believe that is Carma. The last time I crunched someones parked car I left a note and visited the police station. I could ill afford the cost and the bill never came.

Mixing the ideas of Karma and money is difficult for me to do a short post on since money is an equally complex concept. I do believe in karma and dharma as Deepak Chopra eloquently desribes in the book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Two of my favourite movies are Pay it Forward and Six Degrees of Separation. The first because good begets good the second because you never know how connected you are to somebody else until you need to know. It's a big small world. Even if you don't believe in Karma what's the harm in just being nice? It feels good. Start your own 'nice' movement and see where it takes you! Happy Thanksgiving folks, living la vida fearless, Jan

I guess I don't really believe it in a metaphysical sense, but there are all kinds of reasons to believe that helping people tends to make you feel good...which encourages you to help people...which...you get the point. And other people certainly respond well to a happier you.

My wife lost her wallet a few weeks ago and about a week later it showed up at the police station -- not one thing missing from it, and no way to thank or reward the finder for their gift. In those moments I hope their is some magical karma to help them out the next time they need it...
