As a good Augustinian, let me say that life is a crap-shoot. The explanation within Christian theology is that if the good were always rewarded and evil punished in this world, people would do good for the reward (wrong motive) not because of their love for their fellow creatures or for God (right motive). If you want an Augustinian view divorced from Christianity, that's easy: nobody's keeping score, so don't think yourself into a funk by trying to figure out what you did wrong. All you did wrong is to think you did something wrong. Get over it.

I'm too lazy to search the whole thread, so if somebody already said, "My karma ran over your dogma," then disregard this paragraph, which is not Augustinian, just old.

Even a crap-shoot trembles in the hand of the shooter. Seeking right actyion is a higher motive than basing action on some ill-defined emotional stance; but it is possible that love for others and for God in Christian vocabulary is an equivalent fact to the highest and most enlightened sense of Right Action in the mind of the Buddhist. The problem is that the terms never get defined very well and endless quibbles ensue. Which is a cosmic waste of Time. Fortunately, time is not in short supply yet.

Pagans and witches and wiccans (oh my) follow what they call the Wiccan (or Witches') Rede, or the Threefold Law. Basically anything youdo comes back to you threefold; whether good or bad. It is meant to make newbies think twice about working manipulative magic on another person. Obviously it is simply a version of the good old Golden Rule.

We should try to do good in the world as often as we can. Not for its reward, but because it is right to do so. Anything less makes us selfish, or sociopathic.

Amos-- I agree that one should seek the path of Right Action. I don't agree, however, that that guarantees in any way, shape or form that one will "have a nice day." (That's no reason to give up, though).

Loved Carmen Miranda! But I digress.

Karma is, like . . ., man. . .(lengthy inhalation, cough cough, heavy exhalation, slight hunger pains), like . . . ya reap what ya sow, man, . . .like . . .wow, man, it's like . . .ya leave unresolved desires in this life, man, and, like, wow man, in the next life ya gotta like resolve that stuff, man. It's like, . . .kinda like a little of that do unto others stuff, man . . . hey man, I think the room's spinning . . .
