When I tried to spit on that bitch's car, it didn't work & I got bad karma. But plenty of other times I've been cool to people & have gotten good karma.

Karma in simple words "is getting what you give" or reaping what you sow. There's good and bad karma but i think for you or anybody to really feel the effects of karma has to know what is right from wrong and people have a different ways of thinking and values. What might be right may be wrong to someone else, this is why life is confusing the negative force in the world cause us to question our purpose and why we are here if God is so good why do bad things have to happen. You can prevent bad karma by not associating with bad people or people who provoke you, because their toxicity can cause you to take it out on someone else usually someone that they feel is weak or if you are kindhearted person who doesn't have the heart to hurt someone it can drive you crazy slowly but surely to the point you'll lose it or think of suicide when it gets to be too much but most people turn to drugs or something else as an alternative to just ending their life. I would know cause if you stoop to their level and you know better you can bring bad on yourself. My mother toxicity caused me severe stress. And hanging around bad people you will begin to mimick them and do the things they do. So mediate, and be peaceful, and resilent but still stand up for yourself. You have to learn how to control your tongue and and anger, never fall prey to that eye for an eye trap. Your life will always be in a shaky state
John spit on a guy because the man called him a punk when he could have walked away so the next day someone spit in his face because John refused to talk to him when he said hello to him that's karma

The law of cause and effect. From good living, we become a better person, gain greater inner peace and enjoy a good life. From bad living, we become a worse person, destroy our inner peace, and get plagued by a bad life. Simple as that.
He had so many heart problems, I began to wonder if he was cruel to someone in his previous life, and was now reaping his karma!

She was beautiful even in her old age, so I knew she must have led a good life, and was now getting her good karma.

I began to see that there was selfishness and fear within all my actions and attitudes, so I firmly resolved to make love and compassion the central factor in my life, so I would develop better karma.

Karma is a word from the philosophy of many Indian religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism). The basic theory is that the universe runs according to certain laws, all described by one word 'Dharma' (Sanskrit) or 'Dhamma' (Pali). The basic theory is: 'cause and affect'. The laws (Dharma) decide what affect is beget from a given cause. Karma is the 'cause' part of this theory. In other words, your actions - mental, vocal and physical are your Karma (plural).

Please note that in the Buddhist philosophy, Dharma does not 'punish' or 'reward' anyone. The concepts of good and bad don't exist here. For example, gravity is one of the laws of the universe, and if you jumped off a building and killed yourself, we wouldn't say that gravity was punishing you.
