Laura’s Link-UP #11/What Goes Around Comes Around


Hello Everyone!

It’s another Monday Link-UP!  Are you ready for the next question?

If this is your first time seeing this, first.. let me say, “I’m glad you’re here.”

LAURA’S LINK-UP  is something that helps me connect with all of you, as well as you with others. Two Monday’s of each month, I will post a thought-provoking question. Sometimes, the question just sits there. That’s ok. But, usually…there’s always some brave soul out there that can’t resist…and starts up a conversation with their most excellent answer. 🙂 Thanks to all of you who have kept this going. The more comments posted, the more connections made. With your comment, you are asked to leave a link to your blog for others to LINK-UP to.  And so, now that you know…I hope you keep reading and stick around long enough to connect with at least one other awesome blogger.

First, I want to thank all those who participated in LINK-UP #10.   If you want to check out the responses, please click the link. Don’t be shy. You are more than welcome to still get in on the conversation.

There are many thoughts on this word “karma”…what goes around comes around. Karma refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where our intent and actions (cause) or influence an effect on our future. The cause and effect could be good or bad depending on our intentions.

QUESTION #11:

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KARMA? DO YOU BELIEVE IN IT?

You are more than welcome to disagree. I welcome your thoughts and comments.

Below are a few fellow bloggers who participated in the most recent “LINK-UP” as well as in past discussions.  Please check them out. You may discover a new friend and a new inspiration is just a link away.

I am extremely thankful for my blogging community.

I am inspired by you every day.

  1. KARMA 🤔 there is so much written about this subject but it cannot be truly understood without an honorary mention to DESTINY.
    You are the sum total of your actions and your life will be largely influenced by the choices you make.Sometimes we question karma when say things are not looking positive or the tide is not in our favour that there is the play of destiny/fate.

    YES I’m a believer in most things even Unicorns 🦄 and leprechauns 🌈🍀
    I think i will write a post on Karma Soon 🙂

  2. I believe in Karma. Every positive thought and deed is a credit to an account and every negative intent to harm someone that gets converted into an act is a debit. Newton’s law – every action has equal and opposite reaction support Karma. My basic belief is to help people around me when possible or when someone asks for help. Be it as small as opening a door for a person around me or listening to someone in distress or any other way. And I have seen that when I need help and there are strangers around whom I won’t even ask for help, turn out to ask me if I need some help.
    It sometimes comes from the strangest of people. It’s like a miracle hand. I was once stuck in traffic about to miss a train, I was going home for my brother’s wedding the taxi driver went out of way, to find a Cooley to not only pick my luggage but paid the Cooley from his pocket and called me once I boarded train to check if I could make it through. His job was just to drop me to station.
    I had to travel overseas with heavy luggage and was worried about how to manage three suitcases on my own but people helped me on their own and saved me. Though I was sceptical that these strangers might not runaway with my luggage.
    Just two of the many instances where I was saved, the help came from places where it wasn’t expected. So don’t have to be strong, rich or powerful to help others, even a smile or a genuine compliment can cheer someone else.
    Whatever goes comes back. Do what you seek.

    • WOW. Such great examples of kindness and Paying-it-Forward. I do believe what we give will come back to us, good and bad. Sometimes it may not look like people are getting what they deserve at the moment but in the end, if they continue to take and not give…they will see their downfall. Life is such a learning experience if we could all just see it for what it is. Thanks so much for commenting and participating. I really appreciate it. 🙂

      • Thank you for choosing such a topic, I read other comments and they kind of disagree and associated it with religion. It has nothing to do with a particular religion though it might come out of Hinduism but it’s a universal concept not aimed at altering anyone’s religious beliefs but just encouraging people to be good to others. Glad I could share my views and thanks for your kind words dear 🙂

  3. i don’t know whether or not I would call it karma, but I have found that life can throw the most curious unexpected twists and curve balls. I feel it is best to expect to be found out and called to answer for what we do. We need to be sure that we have done the best we can in any given circumstances. It is also easier to live with yourself if you have done the best that you can in any situation.

  4. I do believe in Karma. What we put out into the world, returns to some extent. It has happened to me. I have always believed this world is our “school” and so how else would we be able to learn lessons if not through experiences?

  5. Hurting people is inevitable, we do it knowingly and unknowingly, every single day. I believe that if we inflict pain knowingly and repeatedly, we will see it come back to us – we reap what we sow. But those deeds of ours that we do unknowingly or those wrong deeds we regret and have repented over, would not come back to us. So karma is not a word with a concrete meaning. Too many variables are there. Also, as humans whenever a bad things happens to us, we try to understand the reason and link it to some bygone deed of ours and blame karma. It could well be just a random happening of life. So do I believe in karma? Yes. But not every unfortunate event in a person’s life (with a terrible past) can be because of karma.

    • I see where you are coming from. Karma is a personal belief and it can be described in different ways. I, too, think we as humans reap what we sow. When bad things happen, we do try to make sense of it but sometimes it will never make sense. Things just happen because we are human and it’s to be expected as long as we live on earth. I try to learn from everything that happens to me… the good and the bad. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Really appreciate it. 🙂

  6. Me first? Well here goes. I do not believe in karma as a spiritual influence because I want no influence that leads me away from my Christian belief. Now what I do believe. I believe we reap what we sow, which is close to what I understand about karma. The difference is that I feel karma does not give God the recognition that he deserves as the Guide and Planner of my life. Does that start us off with agree or disagree?

    • I totally agree, Oneta. I also believe the Bible teaches we reap what we sow. I’ve seen in my life as well as others. Any thing we do, good or bad, can make a difference in our lives and others, for the good or bad. As far as Karma…I have seen it in action but I give God the credit in the blessings and our humanness and stupidity in the afflictions we bring on to ourselves. God allows both to work in our lives. Thanks so much for your comments and being the first brave soul to step up. 🙂
