Karma Has Your Address
“Karma moves in two directions. If we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness. If we act non-virtuously, suffering results. ” Sakyong Mipham
How are things going for you right now? Are you having great relationships with people? Is your business going well? Is your money lacking or building up? The honesty test is for you to decide the truth.
Did you know there is a direct correlation as to what you’re dealing with as to what you have put out in the Universe or sent into someone else’s life?
Today we’re going to deal with the age old thing called Karma.
Did you know when you get even with someone or when you show love towards someone, that in reality when you do these things, it is like throwing a boomerang?
It WILL return to you………..no matter how long it takes to show up….and it may be clothed differently than what you would expect.
When we feel we’ve been wronged, it’s easy to look out into another person’s situation and try and speak a certain thing into their life. People can do some things to you that can make you want them dead, miserable, suffering, losing everything, hurting and being in as much pain as you are in right now or have had to experience because of them. It doesn’t matter the reason behind the feelings you’re having because for you it is a real thing. And it is also natural to want payback.
No one likes pain and naturally your defenses tell you to get even or wish evil upon your enemy. Besides, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me”..right?
Wrong, wrong and wrong again!
The hardest thing to do when you have been wronged is to end everything on LOVE and speak blessings and peace towards your enemy…..a person you once loved…and possibly still love. (I see the side eyes….)
Staying in a place of hurt allows you to keep blaming the perpetrator for your shortcomings and inability to move forward. It makes getting rid of the bitterness, resentment and hatred that much harder and it slows or stops forgiveness. This is only hurting you. Without forgiveness, you cannot move forward, you hinder your own prayers and you set up diseases within your body. You’re probably saying, “Yeah but you have no idea what I’ve been through.” And if this is your thought, you’re probably right. But I don’t have to know what you’ve been through to know this…..you are NOT alone. It takes one to know one.
Being handled with care means you have to learn to pull from a place of love at the hardest moments and speak life or say nothing, especially towards the person that hurt you.
Short True Story
Years ago, I had a woman harassing me and my former significant other after I found out about their affair. She sent me an email stating how she was going to leave us alone and she didn’t know about me and how good of a man he was blah blah blah. I told her we had no issues as long as she stayed out of our lives. Of course this lasted all of a week before she began sending me emails and twitter retweets to annoy me and to cause him and I more problems. This isn’t about the cheating but it’s this one phrase she made a point to tell me which was “Once he cheats, he’ll cheat on you with another”. This made me feel a certain way but I didn’t retaliate with words as she thought I would.
However, I did retaliate and boy did I cause an atomic bomb explosion to go off! Let’s just say, a lot of lives were permanently changed, relationships ruined, friendships ended, businesses destroyed, kids left in distraught and trust irrevocably broken.
I got it back almost instantly in almost every area of my life.
What happened to her?
She got the guy but that didn’t last either. Let’s just say, Words are things and be very careful what you speak into someone else’s life (hell no I didn’t take him back….LOL…but you can already figure it out.)
Was it worth it? At the time yes and I felt relieved.
But so much was lost and the payback was far greater than the original intent. This is when I learned there was nothing for me to do when I feel I’ve been wronged. It always takes care of itself. And at the end of my payback, I was no longer crying and in pain, but someone else was….simply because they kept sending certain things into the Universe or trying deliberately hurt others.
Why am I talking about this now?
Several of the readers have shared with me what they wish would happen towards someone or they have spoken things against the one who has hurt them that make me cringe when I hear it.
This thing called “Karma” is usually used to define a situation that’s going to come back and bite you in the butt later on. I hear “Karma is a b*tch no matter how you dress her.” Well, I’ve met her personally and from the things that happen in my life, good and less than good, I can usually tie it back to something I’ve said or done towards another. So yes I am more careful than ever about what I say, do and think about other people, even if I feel they are deserving of my foot in their butt.
I mentioned this woman’s statement to help you understand that something as simple as speaking or thinking a certain thing with the intent to harm someone else……WILL return back to its creator.
Vengeance is only for God to decide how to repay. There is nothing for us to do. So I advise you to let go of the “bashing” sessions with your friends, stop replaying the past, forgive him/her and find something else to occupy your time.
Being handled with care is when you allow life to synchronize without your interference and EVERYTHING will work out the way it is supposed to….and FOR YOU!
Besides, you are creating your own quality of life with your words, thoughts and actions so properly dress Karma in something beautiful, kind, loving, honest, giving and FORGIVING.
Lastly, this life ain’t no Monopoly game and no one gets off with a “free get out of jail” card.
Karma’s got that address and the forwarding address, too.
