KARMA.... revisited

I have a few questions about KARMA. I am confused about it, I think in part because I am a Buddhist. You see kharma is something YOU earn on a personal and spiritual level. It cannot be put in a box and given as a gift, but here it can. I have embraced this fact and I have gotten in the habit of giving freely to those that I feel deserve karma. Here is where my problem lies. It seems one of the recipients is not appreciative of the karma I have given. I think perhaps their KHARMA is all screwed up and they do not like my generosity. Is there a way to take back the karma you have given? Can a recipient deny the karma you have sent? Is it possible to change your mind after you have given?

Don’t ask those questions else you lose yourself.

Know where KARMA lives – past that, why worry?

If the meal is heated by fire, the food was prepared long ago.
If the person(s) you gave karma to did not want it, don't give them more. While karma, once given, cannot be rescinded, you can put that person on your "naughty" list, and not further their spiritual journey.
And if it was me you are concerned with, all karma is accepted in the spirit it was given...

Forums karma kinda belongs to the givee once it is passed along. If they will work with you, PM either Janet or me and we'll remove it. If they won't, put them on your ignore list and move on.

And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide,let him know it's flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need,but not your emptiness.

Hey, a new KARMA thread - perfect timing.

Where did all my Karma go????????
I'm down to 140+ now but had lots more before the recent software update. Made me feel good.
Did it go to the great Karma graveyard in the sky??
I walk carefully now afraid every day that bad karma is about to get me...
You know - "it's not paranoia if they really are out to get you"
Karma, where is my Karma...... Sadly, I must have left the barn door open and all my Karma ran away.

Thank You 62Overlander for the donation, I feel replenished....

I always wondered what a Karma Chameleon was. Then, I saw a recent picture of Boy George and stopped wondering. Yikes!

Aaaaahhhhh! I've got the solution. What we need to do is to tax people who have excess karma by taking away some of their karma points then those points can be given to people who don't have enough karma and would benefit from having some. You could start with mine. Evidently I'm the subject of karma lust, so if it would do some good, tax mine and give it to someone who would benefit from it.

I don't understand this Karma-on-the-forums thing. How do you know when you get new Karma? I didn't know I had any at all until one day I happened to notice all these messages at the bottom of my CP home page. If there is some type of notification system, I have never noticed it. I have seen people say they were sending Karma to someone in a post, but I don't remember them saying they were sending some to me. Since I found the Karma post on my CP homepage I have sent Karma to others and included a short message with it, but I never knew if that person actually knew I did unless they checked their Karma messages on a regular basis.

So, since I have failed to show my appreciation for the Karma that I have received, I want to take this opportunity to say "thank you" to those who have been kind enough to recognize me on these forums.

Karma Karma Karma

I agree .... I never remember getting any "karma orientation" when I registered on the site.
so please forgive any oversights on my part - I was just karmaclueless.
