Bad Karma, Good Karma, Or Another Solution
Bad Karma To You!
Karma refers to a work or deed. In addition, it also takes in account the intent of the person who performed this action or deed. If the intent was good, then future happiness by means of good Karma will follow. If the intent was bad, then misery or bad Karma will follow the individual.
It seems more and more I either hear or see Facebook posts how bad Karma should fall on one’s head for the apparent bad thing another has suffered. Cut someone off in traffic, cut my hair too short, not pay back a loan, a bad text, didn't bake the cookies you promised me. I think I watch too many court TV shows.
Karma is suppose to be our equalizer or champion. You belittled me, cut me off in traffic, wronged me, cheated me…. Karma is going to get you!!!! Bad Karma!!!!
Karma is not my champion! May I strive for love and peace be my champion one day.
Isn't wishing someone bad Karma, bad Karma?
A good book that I know says (and I paraphrase): Love all. Even criminals and evildoers can manage to love their friends or close acquaintances. Big deal! It is one who is righteous that can find love in their heart to love all.
So someone has done you wrong, is that basis to wish harm to them? Have you never either on purpose or by accident hurt or offended another? Do you wish the person you harmed or even me (as if you are allowed to judge, why can I not judge you), to wish ill upon you? And I wishing ill upon you, is that not reason for me not to be judge then and now evil must fall upon me. Where does it end this cycle of negative, hateful energy.
Then do you complain that the world is getting more ugly, more evil, mean, hateful, etc? What about the endless cycle of judgment, evil Karma slinging that you and I and whoever first offended you just started? Why can’t we interject love, calmness or peace when someone unjustly offends, harms, or wrongs us? Do we turn the cheek and turn hate to love???? Or should we add to the cycle of hate and violence????
To love means loving the unlovable.
To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable.
Faith means believing the unbelievable.
Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless
Okay, you say what about good Karma? What do you have against good Karma?
I have two issues. One is if you tout your good deed. Good deeds should be done with privacy. If you help your brother up from a fall, you should not tell everyone how your brother has fallen and you lent a hand. Your brother deserve privacy in his time of need. The good deed will be more appreciated if it is done in confidence.
Okay, what if I do my act of good Karma in privacy. What is your beef then?
Just think of how peaceful, serene and nice the world would be if doing good acts, nice things, random acts of kindness was something automatically done. Not something done on occasion for a reward, but something that is ingrained. In my opinion, it should not be taught early on: do a good deed and get your reward. How about: good deeds, it’s just like breathing. You do it and you don’t even think about it. It’s just apart of life.
I like the commercial that tells us if we use one less trash bag a month, then together we take enough plastic out of the landfills that it would have covered a mountain. Just think if we took 1% of our daily time to be nice when we wanted to be angry or hurtful to others. Then together we could make our world exponentially nicer!
Let's go out there and make some ripples!
