регулярно делаю что то доброе просто так.
The last one that was TRULY, 100% random was in Louisville. During LoveMercy. We were eating a ridiculous amount of Italian food in a food court, and there was a homeless guy that was being scrutinized. Steve talked to someone and decided that he didn't deserve our *totally pure religious money*. I offered him my breadsticks; he refused. I talked to him. He listened, nearly cried (Am I really so incompetent that you mourn when I speak?). I got to hug the guy and leave. What did Steve and co. say? "Good job." Right.
No, not karma. Ew. I just think that doing what you should do earns something, even something that one can't see. Isn't one of the points of life to look beyond ourselves to affect the bigger picture?
Whoa. Cool thoughts.
I do believe in karma. The last time that I was randomly kind to someone, well, I can't really remember. I hold doors open for people quite often. I don't really think about it all that much, I just do it if I see someone coming toward a door that I'm entering or leaving, I'll hold it for them. Male, female. Doesn't really matter to me. The funny thing is, I hate it when men hold doors for me. I think it's the feminist in me. I can open my own door, thank you very much. If a female holds a door open for me, I don't care. That rarely happens. I've seen maybe three women on campus, other than me and that hold doors open for people. Males do so often, but females doing so is a rare thing.
Holding up some bikes so this woman could get by in them really slow travel things.
No I don't believe in karma lol.
Well, let's see. A few days ago, I gave my friend a dollar so she could buy some ice cream. That sounds pretty close to a random act of kindness, I'd say. Of course, it would have seemed kinder if that were my last dollar. Then again, that was the best I could do at the time.
Do I believe in karma? Eh. I'm kind of indifferent on the topic at the moment. We've been learning about it in history, you know. Karma and hinduism and the like. Yet it still hasn't clicked to me. So I'd have to say I'm unsure...
Доброте нельзя научиться. доброта исходит из души. Однажды мне сказали совсем не знакомые люди. что моя доброта портит мне жизнь. А что делать. когда я не могу иначе. когда все пропускаю через себя.
"Last night after Xtian, Duke and I helped the teachers in decorating the stage for the event and went home at 11:30PM. Duke and I rode the taxi and he was complaining about waking up early and feeling tired all day. I guided the taxi driver at his house and drop him there and I walked home.
&& I can't know if I should believe in karma."
A friend of mine is a big fan of a band I know and always declined my offers to get him autographs because he didn't want to feel as if he was using me to get close to the band (he's met some of them before, but never had all their autographs). He just had a pretty major surgery, and I decided to get him a get-well card and I had the entire band sign it. He got it on Wednesday and was ecstatic.
I do believe in karma and I try my best to be as nice as I can to people, but I am the first to admit I am far from perfect and have a bitchy, vindictive streak from time to time.
i just helped my mother make the family food. i helped a friend with his gang problems (assist him in assassinating a rival gang member with a fork). i believe in karma, yeah, but i mostly believe in Kama (Sutra).
Meh'. I listened to Bonzai go on and on and on and on and on about her crush for some kid.
Sorry, runts, shit happens to good people and bad people. Randomly. <3
We hear about the criminals who are caught, but you bet there are millions of cold cases, and criminals who are lying around happily, pedos doing their shit, rapists kicking up the good life; whereas, "good" people who try the honest way, according to society, are shoved under the bus, develop cancer, yadda. Of course wrong-doing people have terrible things occur too... but not always becauseeee they did something wrong. That doesn't mean you can't be rewarded for doing good or punished for doing bad-- it's not anything beyond a human thing. The world does not guarantee karma, but humans try to, in order to reinforce conformity in society.
Another reason karma is bull: good acts and wrong acts do not exist outside of human perspective. There can't be such a universal truth if one person views an act as wrong and another as good. *hums* If you believe in karma, you might as well believe in astrology and the easter bunny, that's all I can say. And if you do and feel offended, shut the fuck up. You can't argue with this shit. <3
ack, been lazy here. Skipped loads of days.
