Why Bad things Happen to Good People–A Partial Explanation as per Me!!

“I’m, you know, not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans, because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. And so, I have been very concerned about how to think and what to do about that because I don’t like … that. And then I’ve been, this, you know, concerned about, oh, how should we deal with the Olympics, because they’re not being nice to the Dali Lama who is a good friend of mine. And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and I thought, is that karma? When you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you?” ~Sharon stone


A few days back actress Sharon Stone received a lot of flak for alluding that the earthquake in China was caused by bad karma for the shabby n shoddy treatment of the Chinese (Government) towards the people of Tibet…she has been called all sorts of names from old hag to cold hearted (mentioning only the milder ones here)….but I can relate to her statement in a way….I don’t agree with her verbatim i.e. in the sense that the Chinese got punished for the wrong acts of their Government…but I do believe that everything that happens to us is indeed the result of our Karma ( What goes around, comes around)…it might seem callous to say that when somebody meets with an unfortunate event (Rape, murder, accident, etc) they deserve it, but honestly speaking that’s the way it is…we get what we deserve ( but not in a way that if you do X bad thing, Y bad stuff would happent to you–naah, that is too simplistic for something as complex as karma to operate; one meets one’s karma in the most unexpected ways n more often than not it catches you unawares) n we attract every single event in our life by our actions only…no outside force or agency is responsible for whatever happens to us…the good, the bad & the ugly.
