“The results of karma cannot be known by thought, and so should not be speculated about. Thus, thinking, one would come to distraction and distress. “Therefore, Ananda, do not be the judge of people; do not make assumptions about others. A person is destroyed by holding judgments about others.” – Anguttura Nikaya
