* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Karma Attack?
« on: September 08, 2011, 08:08:09 pm »
Hey everyone. Okay so what are your views on Karma. Have you ever had a week when karma kept coming to you one by one for 2 days straight. If so explain :)

Ill tell you my current story. I am almost done school (like this year) and my friends and I since we started our school we kept pretending this one teacher would come down on a harness (dont ask we are weird) and then they and I started to just became bullies to this poor women I felt soo bad to tell the difference between the character we made up and the real deal. So its been 2 years now and the same thing, but something different. I was taking my friends braclet off that he gave me for my birthday and it broke. I was like "okay weird" then I went to the office to ask if my favorite class is still avaivle so I can transfer classes. I heard a voice in the other office "they are full" then I thought okay this is just a coincidence. The I went to my class and I looked at my hand, my ring that my mother got me 2 years ago split open. It had sedimental value. there is no way it could have broken. Then at break I had lunch. At the end of the day I lost my lunch bag. that is my story I dont even know if I built up so many negative energies for 2 years its back firing, I think I should stop.

Addy, you might want to read the threads on the boards about karma, and then read this thread from Dharma Wheel:  Cause, Effect, & Holocaust.

Karma simply doesn't work in the ways you are describing.

Thanks, Veggie, for doing this before I had even seen the thread. My answer would've been the very same.

IMO we need to stop thinking about "Instant Karma" (Sorry, John, loved you and your work but you did a big disservice to the concept) and learn more about how it "really" works (assuming one accepts the concept to start with). It's way bigger than the examples in the OP's post, as I am learning.

That the standard Western view of "karma" is incoherent, inconsistent, false, and a substitute for a Big Bully Daddy God in the minds of people who can't conceive of a universe that isn't out to punish them for sins.

we shine like stars    - Covenant, "Bullet"
