#># I personally don't really believe in the idea of bad karma,

does one's belief about a cosmological principle affect it at all?
I personally don't believe in cosmic "badness". does this mean 
that what I'm labelling this way doesn't exist, or its character
is different, ontologically, than I'm describing?
#> I don't believe in the idea of good karma. Karma is karma; you bind
#> yourself just as strongly if the chains are made of iron or gold.
#> Consider the Wheel of Fortune.

do you have a ready-made way to reveal these bindings to us as more
than mere imagination in your head? thanks. 

# Well, karma is just what happens when you live in a body 

I am a body. people living "in" bodies are mighty strange!

# and can have an effect on the world.  

my 'send' button will do that. watch.

# Whether you want to call that being chained or being alive is 
# probably a better way to distinguish bad karma from good.

karma is imagined identity where will is not locatable. 
we ascribe 'cause' to shifting bodies and fields and think
they are the ultimate origin of the change associaed with
them. in fact, the composite change is nonlocal and general.

when people release notions of 'cause' and stop identifying
shifting fields and bodies as origins of cause, then true
responsibility becomes evident, karma (action) drops away as
an epiphenomenon, and liberated thinking becomes possible.

blessed beast!
