No Cosmic Justice.

Many people find it hard enough to empathize with those in positions they were formerly in themselves, let alone empathize with someone in a position that they entirely alien to. Even when they can manage to see from their former positions they can only see themselves there in the other person’s shoes, you could say, but not looking through the eyes of the other person. This is why the notion if retributive karma has come to irritate me as much as the heaven/hell belief: do something bad to someone now and later, somewhere down the line, tables will surely turn. Even when we remember our former positions we all too often fail to empathize, as formerly mentioned, so what good is a cosmic system of justice aiming for balance throughout countless incarnations shrouded by amnesia?
