I believe that, eventually, you will be rewarded in some way for "good deeds" and will reap the repercussions for negative actions...on a cosmic scale. I don't think karma will bite you in the butt for say, squishing an ant, but if you say...burned a particularly important angelic/demon/whatever at the stake, that might be different.
*nods* This is also how I view karma. If you're a decent person throughout your life, you will be rewarded either in a pleasant afterlife or by coming back to a better life than you had before, really that depends on how you view what happens after you die. Similarly, if you're a bad person you will eventually be punished in some way. Is karma something that effects how/why I do things? No, it's just something that I figured was there to help keep balance. *shrug*
As far as fate, yes I believe in it but not in the you-don't-control-your-own-choices sort of way. Was I fated to work that summer job, meet my mate and fall in love, eventually getting married to him? Absolutely. Was it fate that fired me from one job after only two weeks, led me to a job fair which got me a bank teller job and then months later a job at the state capitol? Absolutely. Was it fate that made me type this post? Hell no. Was it fate that made me buy a betta fish for my office? No. Fate, at least as I understand it, contributes to major events in your life. Do we have the power to make our own choices throughout our life for better or worse? Yes, of course we do. But is there something that drives us to choose one thing over the other for whatever the reason? That 'something' in my mind is part of fate.
