Do you believe in karma? It’s the idea of doing something, and that something being done back to you. It might not be the exact same thing….but something similar. For example, being kind to a stranger, in terms of karma, may bring kindness back to you. Or being unforgiving may come back to you when someone you love doesn’t forgive you. Karma is either good or bad, and of course we all want good karma.
There are even certain modes of thinking that say, ‘karma comes back over lifetimes.’ And in my mind it doesn’t really matter, because what matters is what we are doing right now. Right now in this moment. Forget the past, it’s gone and there is very little you can do about it. Yes you can redeem yourself in some way, but for the most part the past is gone. Done and buried. But the moment, this moment, this very moment right now, well that is a whole different story. Because in this moment you are determining the rest of your life. In this moment you get to choose how you want to be. Do you want to be kind, patient and fun to be around? Or do you choose to be depressed, grumpy and no fun to be around?
Your karma is right now. You may have to pay for past mistakes. If you haven’t handled your money very well, as I haven’t then you will have to pay for that mistake. You will have to get your money in order. And that is the karma of the moment. It is no good doing something that has caused you grief and doing it in a grumpy fashion…that is just prolonging the situation. Work on sorting yourself out in the best way possible. Which means my friend, having an attitude of faith, hope and love.
Faith that it will work out in the end—which it will. Hope that you will not fall into the same trap again—which with diligence, awareness and acceptance—you will not, and love. Love of yourself and others. When you open your heart to loving yourself and others, you are destroying bad karma in one swift stroke. Love conquers all my friend…it truly does.
Today my friend think good thoughts so that your attitude is an uplifting one. One that will uplift your spirits. Have hope; the power of choosing to do or not do things is in your hands so choose wisely. And love. In the bible there are two places to come from; fear and love. Fear keeps the idea of bad karma going and going. Love however, keeps the idea of beneficence and goodness alive in the hearts of every person across the planet. So go with love and feel love come back to you as love always does.
