You Comment I Follow...what goes around, comes around.
What goes up, must come down...

Are you familiar with these lines? If you are very fond of music, them I'm sure you do :D

Do you believe in Karma? How about "History repeats itself"?

First let's try to define what karma means. According to Wikipedia.com:

Karma (Sanskrit: kárma (help•info), kárman- "act, action, performance"[1]; Pali: kamma; Chinese: yinguo ) is the concept of "action" or "deed" in Indian religions understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect (i.e., the cycle called samsara) described in Hindu, Jain, Sikh and Buddhist philosophies.

...the philosophical explanation of karma can differ slightly between traditions, but the general concept is basically the same. It is usually understood as a sum of all that an individual has done, is currently doing and will do. The results or 'fruits' of actions are called karma-phala. Karma is not about retribution, vengeance, punishment or reward; karma simply deals with what is. The effects of all deeds actively create past, present and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one's own life, and the pain and joy it brings to others...

Honestly, I do believe in karma. I know several people who were affected by Karma and are still suffering from it. For example, they stole something or cheated someone... Afterwards, they lost most of their properties, or someone they love.

KarmaMost of the times, when we do something that is not good, or worsen other people's lives; karma often comes back to us. Sometimes, indirectly. Sometimes, lighter than the sin. But most of the times, worse than what you had done...

For example, if you did something wrong like you stole someone's wallet in your office, even though, no one will stole your wallet (because you don't have a wallet), time will come, you will also lose something... something precious to you. That is karma.

Now, let me ask you "Do you believe in karma?"
