Getting all the Boy George feels for this post about Karma because I’m always fearful of posting about a rather turbulent character that floats around my life because of the dangerous waves she attempts to create to make me drown. Little does she realize that my glittery heart won’t let her win. We’ve never been friends nor friendly, despite my best attempts.
Lately the tension feels so thick you could cut it with a knife and if you know me at all, you know that turmoil wreaks havoc on my mind, body and spirit. Rather than let it eat at me, I’ve handled it the way I know best … Through studying ways to understand the actions she takes and the impact that her actions have upon her, not me, so I can throw glitter at her very dark soul.
Today’s blog is about Karma and how the law impacts the negative person giving out negativity more than it will ever hurt the positive person that attempts to spread kindness.
First things first, What is Karma?
Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. It’s a returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it. This law of cause and effect is not punishment, but is necessary for you to learn from the life that you live.
To stop being afraid and to start being empowered, here is what you need to know about Karmic laws and how they impact you:
1) THE GREAT LAW
– The law of Cause and Effect teaches us that what we sow, we will also reap.
– The vibration of your life into the universe is what will come back to you. You get what you give.
– If you want to live a happy and peaceful life with love and friendship, you must actually be a happy and friendly person.
2) THE LAW OF CREATION
– Life won’t knock on your door. You have to go out and live it.
– You have to live as though you are the universe and treat everyone and everything the same.
– The environment you choose is what give you war or peace.
– Surround yourself with the people that match your morals and ethics for they’re your representation to the rest of the universe.
3) THE LAW OF HUMILITY
– When you choose to refuse something, you choose to keep the turmoil. Acceptance is the only factor that creates the balance needed for humility to live.
– If you see an enemy in another human being, you see it in yourself because you’re unable to live and focus on a higher level of existence so you stay at the bottom because of it.
4) THE LAW OF GROWTH
– Look at the map for your life and mark an “X” in your mind where you think you are and take a step back and realize “You Are Here.” Wherever you think you, you are. Wherever you think you’re not, you aren’t.
– When we change who and what we are within our heart our life follows suit and changes with us.
5) THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY
– When there is something wrong in your life, it is wrong within you. If you want it to be right, make it.
– The law of the mirror affirms what you see in other people is a real reflection of what you have inside yourself. What we believe we see isn’t always as clear as a reflection in front of it. The mirror can be tainted by the film of pain and experience that has rendered us stagnate and causing the mirror to give us a warped visual of what’s actually in front of us. We have to take the responsibility for this or the reflection will never change.
6) THE LAW OF CONNECTION
– Even if something we do seems inconsequential, we have to realize that everything and everyone is connected in one way or the other. Link the connections. If you want to change something, break the chain that keeps them connected to you in a negative fashion.
– You can’t jump steps. You have to take them in the order they exist.
– Living intentionally will be the only thing that will give you the life you desire.
– The first step in life and the last one are less important than the steps you take in-between them. Your significance is dependent upon them.
– Your past and inner peace about the occurrences within it is mandatory for you to live in the present.
7) THE LAW OF FOCUS
– If you think about hate you have for someone you cannot think about anything else. We’re unable to focus on two things at one time. Focus on what matters.
– Let your focus be about your spiritual values. Values do not have any room for greed or anger.
8) THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY
– Show what you have learned in life and put it into practice within the life you life.
– When people insult you, don’t take offense, don’t take it personally, but do listen to their words. They are telling you how they see the world. If you want to be hospitable, speak words that bring others love. What you give the universe and the people within it is what will be your legacy.
9) THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW
– The rearview mirror is only necessary when you are driving your car. If you look back in life too often, you’ll never be able to live in the moment; which is happening right here and right now.
– Old thoughts, patterns, and behaviors don’t have to impact you for the rest of your days. You have the keys in your hand to unlock the door to a path that will lead you to a more joyful existence.
10) THE LAW OF CHANGE
– History books are the only thing that keep up with our life. If you read them, keep in mind that history happened so we can change. Evolution is the only thing that allows us to grow. Learn from your personal history and turn the errors into a plan of action so history won’t repeat itself.
11) THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD
– Give your heart and you’ll be rewarded with love eventually.
– The priceless rewards of life require patience and consistent kind actions.
– Real joy only arrives in your life when you’re living the best that you can.
12) THE LAW OF SIGNIFICANCE AND INSPIRATION
– The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.
– Every personal contribution is a contribution to the bigger picture that you sometimes won’t see till the end of your life.
– Lack luster contributions have no real impact on your life nor the bigger picture that we all impact.
– Loving contributions to life bring inspiration, joy and hope. All things that give meaning to our lives and the lives of others.
So many lessons, so many thoughts to ponder and bring about change in your life.
In closing, we can never change how others treat us. We can’t make them like us, love us, treat us well, nor change their ways. We can only control how we respond to them. As all intelligent people know, you can’t control anyone but yourself. Nothing you do that you think it is hurting them actually is. It’s the childhood saying in real life; “I’m rubber. You’re glue. Whatever you say to me bounces off of me and sticks onto you.”
Here is a healing quote that I repeat to myself when dealing with this person that isn’t able to be kind to me: “How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” – Wayne W. Dyer
