    What English idioms or expressions do you know that could be construed for an analogy or reference to karma? No debate please.

    Some of mine..
    - what comes around goes around
    - it all comes out in the wash
    - you deserved that
    - what goes up must come down
    - you'll pay for that
    - it'll all balance out

    More?

    It's in the mass consciousness, isn't it?

    Oh I'm not that picky.

    Although you've dragged my back to highschool where someone once told me, "You have a very manly posture."

    Thankyou? I think?;):D

    http://www.religiousforums.com/forum/general-discussion/156524-calling-women-guys.html

    Verdict: Girls don't care about being called "guys", since its colloquial or vernacular usage is non-gender specific. Plus the fact that women use it amongst themselves as well in all-women crowds or groups.

    Yeah. I just fried both of you. Using RF. Chyeahh, boi.

    "You only tease the ones you love." In other words, it was a joke to let FH know, despite some disagreements lately, it's all good. But these kinds of subtleties can and sometimes do go right over certain people's (no names) heads.

    What disagreements?

    And, I remembered another karma-related idiom (I like this thread, I think it's creative, btw!):

    We've been gone for a minute, but we right back to the hustle.

    And: Don't aim too high, don't aim too low. (something that helps me with archery; if I aim with the heart, the after-products will be good)

    Another karma-related idiom: The dog chases his/her tail, but gets no where.

    I think they just want to let it go, I say let them. They are obviously okay with each other now

    No! I want them to fight it out some more and go Mahabharata/Kurukshetra on each other.
