I think its important to understand the concept of Karma, without the Western Mind. I think too often people use Karma as a threat, to warn new pagans off of potentially bad choices for fear of bad things will happen to them.
Its possible that even making bad choices, and learning from those choices are part of your Karma. In other words- you sometimes MUST and SHOULD make bad choices to learn how to make better choices in the future. Or adopt the crazy idea that choices don’t even mean they are ‘bad’ or ‘good’, because sometimes what we perceive as a bad choice ends up leading to where we need to go.
What are your thoughts on the idea of Karma? Personally, I feel that its not the cut-and-dry teaching we so often hear that ‘you reap what you sow’ because I’ve seen plenty of good people have horrible things happen, while people who are mean and evil, get away with it.
