Karma is like Gravity, neither good or bad, it just is.
That makes a lot more sense to me than karma is fate, everything is predestined, there's nothing we can do about it, just don't make matters worse. If people fall into the Grand Canyon while taking a 'selfie' they don't blame it on gravity. Similarly, we can't avoid the consequences of defying the law of karma. Save for a few astronauts, gravitational forces are equally distributed among us. However, there are 52 flavors of Birth or Self karma.
"That's some bad karma there, Hal"
Let's take Bernie and Trump as an example of inherited Soul Karma. Both born in NYC, Bernie's a 77 September 8th and Trump is a 72 June 14th THREE of Diamonds: The UNDECIDED VALUES Card.
Diamonds symbolize that which we value
3 of Diamonds: Uncertain Money Conditions
Challenge for the 3 of Diamonds: Dependence on Others
THREE of Diamonds: The UNDECIDED VALUES Card - The Three of Diamonds is considered one of the more difficult of the life paths of all the cards, especially when the Three of Diamonds is a woman. Indecision in values along with past life karma (Six of Hearts Karma Card) in relationships cause many challenges in the affectional life. A natural interest in metaphysics should be cultivated if they are to know more peace in their lives and overcome the many hurdles and temptations. They always know what is right and wrong, though sometimes they try to ignore what they know.
They have more satisfaction in business where they can travel or do various different things. There is usually someone younger for whom they must make sacrifices for, often one of their children. With three nines in their Life Path, their later life can be disappointing, UNLESS they have developed their spiritual side, which will give them peace and solace and wisdom. These people are here to try many "things" on for size and then to settle on the truth. They are very creative. Some of them discover a divine mission and follow a lofty path where their innate creativity serves a higher purpose where they find peace and contentment.
They both talk about money, banks, NAFTA, TPP, China trade and Socialism vs Capitalism. Their common karmic fear is Dependence on Others. Trump hides his fear and protects his Achilles's Heel by giving a "You're fired." Bernie signs a compact with the Devil, known as Hillary. They just know in their gut, others are going to let them down. Nobody knows why they think that, they just seem to be born that way.
