What Is Karma?

Karma is a Sanskrit word that means "action." Karma has commonly been considered a punishment for past bad actions, but karma is neither judge nor jury. Rather, it is simply the universal law of cause and effect that says every thought, word and act carries energy into the world and affects our present reality

For K I had planned to blog about Karma.  Although im not religious or spiritual, I do believe in Karma in the sense that being good to others means that good will return to you, or at least that is what I thought until now!

If this was the case then why does bad things happen to good people?  I dont just mean us, although in a sense I do, but also friends.  There is Caz who lost her beautiful daughter Belle, Laura and her struggle to become a mummy and so many others out there who have had a horrible time of things.  

Its made me question the things that I do believe in, if someone like Rich can get cancer when bad people out there are living life to the full without a care in the world then what is the point of living a good life?  Does Karma actually exist?  Dont get me wrong, I have seen many people who get what they deserve but I am seeing more and more good people go through experiences they dont deserve and it makes me angry.

Perhaps there is a reason for it?  If there is I am struggling to find it.  I have thought long and hard about the reason behind all of these situations, i wondered if we were "chosen" because someone knew we would cope?  I dont know.  What I do know is that we have all survived and I still believe that good things will happen in the future xxx


  1. What a powerful post. I am "meeting" you for the first time thru this challenge, and I blog about similar things. My 38-year-old son was recently diagnosed with a chronic, debilitating disease and for awhile I allowed it to throw my faith right out the window. I hope you find your way through this with grace and dignity and most of all, hope.

  2. It's true that there are cases in the world of people getting 'an unfair share' of either good or bad, with nothing they do having to do with it. I think MOSTLY though... I've been through some really hard things that I don't think I deserved, but come out on the other side with skills or compassion I've needed in some REALLY important situations (like through my hardship, I can steer my kids around some very painful things).

    Very thought provoking post.

  3. Ally, I've just read this. You're so right. Why do these things happen to the most lovely of people? I think of you and your family every day. Lots of love,
