Beyond Physics

The phrase
“Science has proven”
Indicates that the author of this prompt
Is hazy on both “science”
And “proof”


I already believe that present actions
Presage future consequences
In more than just the sense
That this is true in physics
From a statistical viewpoint

But if I focus on the idea
I realize
That my tendency to selfishness
Is both great and unfortunate
And that the corresponding consequences
Are liable to be, as well


I can today do maybe one more thing
For someone from whom I can gain nothing
Not to gain some karmic something later
But so as not to experience
The other type of karma

That I know

I actually deserve

= = = = =

Karma Chameleon

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?
