I was walking down the road thinking that it would be nice to have someone give me a ride so I didn’t have to walk the four miles home after work at midnight. As I pressed on, I noticed an individual trying to start his truck. The starter whirred, sputtered, and then went silent. I felt this thought creep into my head as I passed by this truck. I wondered if his truck was a standard, then I wondered if push starting it would work. Remembering that it was midnight and I was to work at ten the next morning, after my walk home, I continued on a few more yards. Then I remembered that I was just wishing a car would stop and give me a ride home. Realizing that this was, no doubt, little difference to the wish I imagined this guy was running through his head. I realized that he must be hoping that God, Aliens, or even a stranger might magically appear from nowhere and start his car as if by magic.
I realized that I could be that stranger. I walked back and knocked on his window. Hesitantly, he rolled it down and I asked him if his truck was standard. He confirmed and I asked him if he knew how to push start one. He said he never heard of that before. I gave him instructions and pushed his car back while he turned it toward the more open area of the parking lot. I then pushed his truck and he followed my instructions and started the truck. He thanked me and drove away. I turned from the lot and continued onward, only loosing a mere ten minutes on my journey home. I thought about how good I felt, even though this deed did not grant me a ride home.
There was then a few thoughts that sprang to mind and I remembered that a friend of mine said that he didn’t believe in karma. It occurred to me that helping this fellow would lead to him getting home. This eventually would lead to him feeling less angry, stressed, or tired. Eventually, this ease of his mood would contact those he interacted with the next day. These people would then be less angry, dissatisfied, and/or punishing of his actions. In turn these people would also be less angry, stressed, etc. Eventually, this would effect ever person in the world and this one deed would multiply to elevate the earths population as a whole, even if this was a simply small elevation. This would include my deed returning to me, many times over through simple statistics. Granted, each of the people in this world would have a choice to use this deed, when it found them, to either continue the positivity or start their own blend of negativity. Essentially, my one deed would still affect my life in a more positive manner, as well as many others.
This being said, Karma IS real, and is not only real, but mathematically part of the universe.
Now, continuing this slightly further, does it not stand to reason that even knowing Karma to be fact, an individual must still have something to carry on this knowledge, even when they may not witness it first hand. The term here would be Faith. This being said, Faith is just as essential and a factually prominent part of the growth of the universe as is Karma. (In a simple mathematically based reasoning.)
In conclusion, Faith and Karma are both real, vital, and essential for happiness, growth, and progression of the entire planet. Also, with a little deeper contemplation, for the entire universe as we know it.
