Karma, Luck, or God; Where Have You Put Your Faith ?

    Karma.. I hear a lot of people talking about Karma these days.   They say, what goes around, comes around;  In other words, someday you’re going to get treated the same way you treat other.  People say;  I don’t worry about getting revenge, I just let Karma take it’s course.  But that’s really not what the notion of Karma originally refers to.
