Let your mouse pointer "hover" over the icons and a "tool tip" should pop up letting you know what they are.

Bartender, a round of good Karma for everybody on me.

Remember...give good karma, get good karma...give bad karma, get bad karma.

Nothing wrong with a little Cancer, assuming one is reading their horoscope. Speaking of...

"Your social life is taking a bit today, thanks to a career move or something else that is taking you away from your friends -- temporarily, most likely! Try to roll with it and get back in balance later."

I wonder what this "balance" thing is all about.

But how can one TRULY know the Karma scale?

Is it strickly the Karma points or is it more? Hummm! I mean if a member has fewer Karma points but the ratio of Karma points to posts is higher than a member with more Karma points who has many points - who has the greater Karma? It's like the tree falling in the forest with no one there. If a member has Karma and doesn't know it does he / she really have Karma? Sorry - time to go back into hibernation.

Jaxon,
Naughty might be good outside the forum, but I don't think I want to be thought of or turned in as naughty here. What with all the nice and helpful folks that turn out on the forum I just couldn't bear the thought of being labeled naughty

I have read several threads about Kharma, and found it to be a little confusing. However, I have also come to realized that it is meant to be given as a jesture of thanks by the sender because the receiver has done a perceived kindness. Perhaps offered advice or somehow helped with a problem. So on that note....

Let me state now for the record, that all of you who have felt me worthy of such a gift, Thank You!! I hope I can remain in good standing to remain worthy.

Dan W.

This reminds me of another question.
If a man speaks in the forest, and his wife is not there to hear, is he still wrong?

Back on the karma question - and now I'm serious (for a change).
Is karma only related to religion? Or maybe it was - but has now evolved into something else in general society?
Not to stray into the "prohibited" topic of religion - this is about karma.

no and yes.

the basic notion and views are part of everyday life for many common people world wide.

but the origins, and primary tenants are STILL critical aspects of several of the worlds religions.

it's a bit like asking are "prayer, sin, heaven and hell" judeo-christian or secular concepts...

almost all religious concepts and practices have secular counterparts or are used and mangled in our secular world.

read the wiki (as a start) on these issues and note the 'western adapations' and some of the external links...

Karma

Avatar

these two concepts are just SO rich and involved and essential in many lives, that it's sad to see them mangled and misused here...

we are a generally intelligent and detail oriented group here, so why not apply the same rigor to our forum culture...

our token approval system only adds to the misunderstanding of the concepts.

as every time someone asks "what is k?" we perpetuate the misuse.

we could give...

-polish (some one sent me 'nuvite approvatal' today (thanks m'mate)
-shine
-buff
-rivets
-wally hats

and so many other creative and a/s related terms could be used and add to the fun...

and since the definitions are MADE UP here anyway and as needed...

picking terms that DON'T have special meanings from the worlds religions,

might fit better, with our secular hobby.

a change like THAT would be a nice example of collective karma at the forum level...

cheers

The philosophical explanation of karma can differ slightly between traditions, but the general concept is basically the same. Through the law of karma, 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 him/her and others. The results or 'fruits' of actions are called karma-phala.

I lifted that from Wiki, so you all do not have to look.... Sounds like what we have here on the forums... I personally think it fits well.

And to all that sent me some, it has come back to most, I reached my gifting limit and will resume tomorrow.

Wiki says - The Law of Karma - "All living creatures are responsible for their karma their actions and the effects of their actions"

How can our use here be considered a "misuse" if we are responsible for our own karma?

As I see it, karma can not be given, it can only be received. Possibly the correct perspective is to look at the forum karma system as the opportunity for members to offer their wish of good karma received... as in the wish offered by expressing the phrase "God bless you"
