"Karma and Dogma"

By Dr. Larry B. Gelman


If life is ever construed of as a “cosmic joke”,


Then consider the constructs of “Karma” and “Dogma”…


But please be sure to remember that “Karma” always prevails in the end.


Because, “Karma” recapitulates itself, ad infinitum, until “Karma” gets it right.


“Dogma” is the rationalization we utilize to justify why we do what we do;


And when we fail, to justify why we failed.


“Dogma” seeks permission from an external locus of control;


“Karma” reincarnates forgiveness from one’s internal “higher power”.


Ultimately, what you do is ultimately who you are.


In sum, you are what you do.


That, I suspect, is a dogmatically profound, albeit, karmic truth.


Either “do it right the first time” or “die trying”.


Three cheers for “Karma”!


Hip-hip hooray!

Hip-hip hooray!

Hip-hip hooray!
