I am working today on some positive thinking, but sometimes things are mighty hard! Last year, I posted this little thought about Karma, and I’m just resharing while I contemplate.
I am not expert on spiritualism, but I am curious about the concept of Karma. Karma involves the concept of an action or deed causing a cycle of cause and effect. “What goes around comes around” is what they say. But why do people who do bad things seem to just chug along unfazed? It’s apparently because people don’t get what they deserve, they get what they attract. Now I’m more confused. But I guess this means not to worry about what happens to these people, but to focus on the things that we do ourselves.
I have been working on positive thinking, doing the right thing, and trying to teach my young adult children to do the right thing. Why then, do bad things happen? It seems hopeless and discouraging to think that working hard and doing good things just keeps on generating bad karma.
We tend to think of karma as meaning if we do the right things, good things will happen. So if bad things happen, then we must have done something bad. Apparently karma isn’t just an individual thing. Life is difficult. It’s also wonderful. So if something bad happens to you, but great things are happening to other people, then you can still react by saying or doing something positive. Putting some more happiness into the cosmic, karmic melting pot.
I’m working on positive thinking and looking forward to some happy karma stew! Take care.
