Karma originated in the Eastern religions and is essentially the belief in a moral cause and affect. It can either be seen as natural justice or it is sometimes interpreted as deity intervention but either way it forms the idea that if you put wrong into the world, you will have wrong done back to you.
Wicca picks up the idea of karma with its adherence to the threefold rule – whatever you do will be done back to you multiplied by three. I’m not a fan of neat little mathematical moralities and I don’t personally follow the threefold rule myself. However there is a real logic behind karma. The kind of person who puts nothing but misery and unhappiness into the world is unlikely to get much happiness back. Likewise, somebody who spends their life being kind to and helping others will probably get a lot of kindness directed back at them. So whether you believe in an interventionist deity, a universe with moral laws or simply in the logic behind human behaviour – whichever way you look at it, some form of karma makes sense.
