Have you check out the index list by Access to Insight (see below)?
: The second type of karma is that, put simply, if we do a good deed something good will happen to us and if we do a bad deed something bad will happen to us.
This is what I understand it:
if we do a good deed something good will happen and if we do a bad deed something bad will happen.
Can they cancel each other out?
No. Good is not the opposite of bad. Bad is not the opposite of good. Non-attached is the opposite of both of them, if you really want to find something.
Rember: Buddha advised against spending time on figuring out how Kama works, or what happens to Buddha after Nirvarna, etc.
There are more important things...
I believe (, i.e., I say so, but I have no prove) that kama is one of the 'so-to-speak' things what people understand (in Hinduism context) that Buddha dossn't want to spend too much time to disprove it.
It is not in the Buddha's core teaching. It is part of the conventional 'wisdom' (implying: not necessary true, but easily to continue if assume true).
