I guess it is typical to think of it like this….
If you do something wrong or bad, look out because you will receive an unpleasant surprise in due time.
However, I have learned that Karma really means action. To act on our truth. What actions do you take to get you to where you want to go in life? It’s a choice, we all have them and we all eventually choose our path or direction which then we”ll acknowledge that are choices have consequences. GOOD or BAD.
So I was thinking about Karma in a new way because I, like most people, tend to think of Karma as if somethings going to eventually bite me in the ass from something I’ve done or said that I’m not proud of. Come on, you know you have felt this way at some time in your life.We all experience pain and regret and becoming self aware can help with the choices we make. I believe this to be true in many ways. It’s at least something to be mindful of when referring to “karma”.
If someone gives me the finger for some ungodly reason that I’m unaware of, my “karma” is determined by my response. If I respond in defense, all I’m doing is reacting to their bull crap. Nothing good could come from an angry response. Why mess with your inner peace? Instead choose compassion. You really never know what someones dealing with internally. We all have bad days but sending out a little compassion and understanding can go a long way. It may even change someones life, or yours!
“How people treat you is their karma: how you react is yours” Wayne W. Dyer
“When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on your own weak points” Confucius
“On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So which is it? Let the light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both” Yehuda Berg
