A freee thinking mind understands that what one might consider a problem, another could call a solution.
A free thinker is not afraid of being called ‘different’
Free–thinkers are confident, logical and intelligent. They give birth to their own ideas and resist the dominating mantras of the simple-minded.
Free-thinkers engage in creative thinking on many levels. Socially, emotionally, logically and spiritually.
RELIGION AND SCIENCE ARE INCOMPATIBLE
They’re incompatible, because they both compete to find truths about the universe and life itself. There are some fundamental truths that believers have to accept in order to be religious. Scientists do not have to accept anything in order to be researchers, just observe, follow the scientific method and prove the fact. Religion is based on believes, not facts.
1. You are very intelligent and NEVER STOP asking WHY
2. You are the pope of your own life: As a free-thinker you live by your own set of rules and NO ONE, not even your beloved mother, can tell you to live otherwise. You came by your beliefs through your own experience and curiosity. You tested them and they stood up to your tests. It’s impossible for you to kowtow to religious or secular bylaws that were created to control people.
3. You understand that there are many ways to see the world
4. You have fun! Free-thinkers don’t take things too seriously when they don’t have to. It’s fun to wrap your head around new ideas. It’s fun to try new things. It’s fun to eat new foods. Life is full of adventures and free thinkers are up for adventure.
“What goes around comes around” is the phrase that comforts most people when they’re in an unfair situation or any other situation in which they have no control over.
If you ask most people what karma is all about they will say something like, “It is punishment for past wrongs.” Or “What you do to others will come back to you.”
The concept of karma is very old and has its origin in ancient India. However, many Buddhist and Hinduist schools of thought use different definitions.
However, many people still have a need for an outside authority that punishes and rewards. This is apparent in the way many religions are still interpreted and practiced.
For generations, our ancestors believed in a judging and punishing god. Subconsciously we still project the image of a judging authority on a teacher, a set of religious or philosophical beliefs, or a concept like karma. This way, we just take away the old judging deity and replace it with another.
It’s seen as a sort of cause and effect; a universal system of justice against your crimes.
In fact, some people count on it for vengeance.
The original Buddhist idea of karma based on reincarnation is even more problematic with respect to evidence.
Nothing out of the ordinary happens much. Everything happens for a reason, sure, but that reason hasn’t been proven to be a spiritual or a mystical one. Everything happens for a reason because of cause and effect. That cause and effect is determined by probability.
In history, there have been legions of people who have done good deeds for their families and other people while still living lives of quiet desperation. What do infants do to deserve being abandoned by their parents, or being killed in car accidents?
At the other end, there are despotic leaders like Stalin and predatory criminals like Jack the Ripper who got to the end of their lives without any particularly dire consequences.
These examples do not prove that there is no such thing as karma, but should combine with the lack of evidence for karma to support the conclusion that karma is just a myth. The belief that what goes around comes around is just wishful thinking.
CONCLUSION: Karma is not a bitch. It is a myth. It doesn’t exist.
