The idea of karma was popularized in the Western world through the work of the Theosophical Society. Kardecist and Western New Age reinterpretations of karma frequently cast it as a sort of luck associated with virtue: if one does good or spiritually valuable acts, one deserves and can expect good luck; conversely, if one does harmful things, one can expect bad luck or unfortunate happenings. In this conception, karma is affiliated with the Neopagan law of return or Threefold Law, the idea that the beneficial or harmful effects one has on the world will return to oneself. Colloquially this may be summed up as ‘what goes around comes around.’
In my over 1/2 century of living on this planet I have seen very little justice but lots of karma. Therefore I put little faith in the former and lots of faith in the latter. Today both justice was served and “what went around came around”.
I am very happy for Fred Goldman, his family and the Brown family. It doesn’t undo the damage, but I hope it helps them heal.
