Daily Prompt: Karma Chameleon

Apologies folks, this said it had published yesterday but hadn’t – I hope this still satisfies!

———————————————————————————————————————————-

This just in: let’s pretend that science has proven that karma is a thing. Your words and actions will influence what happens to you in the future. How (if at all) will you change your ways?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CIRCLE.

Hello everyone! I’m in a surprisingly cheery mood today, although I am no doubt going to be panicking be the end of the day! I had best just go with the flow anyways, which brings me onto what I’m going to say.

Many a time on this blog have I said that I believe in, more or less, going with the flow. I think that living life to the full is to experience as much as you can, and I think that being too actively involved in choosing what you do (including planning ahead by miles) can lead to a less vibrant and varied life. Karma is something I like the idea of – it’s fun, and I think that life’s little surprises are what make it worth living. That being said, I don’t believe in karma as such, although I do believe that your actions will influence what ultimately becomes of you.

I attended a kind of philosophy event today. It was a small, group discussion consisting of a few students who were more informed and experienced than I in philosophy, as well as a lecturer and another philosophy teacher standing by. It was a one off thing, so I thought I might enjoy it – after all, my mother took a philosophy degree and still talks a lot about philosophy, so I thought I wasn’t completely out of my depth. The discussion started off with your typical philosophical question: a man goes to prison, and has all the things he desires – TV, music, books, food, warmth, a new friend who he shares a cell with and gets on really well with – but he cannot leave, however this doesn’t matter to him as he has no desire to leave. The question was “Is the man free?”. And it went on and on for about an hour. I didn’t say a thing – when it comes to discussions I tend not to take part and just soak up all the ideas.

At the end, the lecturer made us all stand up (it was a small group of about a dozen), and started a word game whereby you went round in a circle and each said a word that had nothing to do with the idea that preceded it. It was very fun, and we did very well – only one person went out of the game due to saying something that rhymed with my concept. My favourite round went something like this:

“Blue”

“The letter ‘M'”

“Incongruity”

“Wood”

“Blasphemy”

Anyways, back to the idea of being free. I think the reason I like the idea of karma is because it’s fun, however I don’t think anyone likes the idea that they’re not in control of their own lives. However, we’re all constrained by limitations – we can never be truly free because in order to be so, you would have to be omnipotent. So dude, go with the flow! No way am I going to change what I’m doing at the moment, because life is experience!
