Karma is a word which is also recognized and referred to as an expression of its basic principle: What goes around comes around. There are those who use Karma as a justification for exacting revenge, although the reality is: The Universe has it under control. If you circulate positive energy and love-based emotions you are likely to have many more positive experiences and nurturing people in your life than negative events and uncaring ‘friends.’ If you circulate anger, dishonesty, sarcasm, judgment, ego, and other poisons the opposite is true.
For some, this truth is hard to accept – especially when one’s life is full of backstabbing, inconsiderate ‘friends’ and perpetual devastation. It’s even more difficult to accept when skewed perceptions are making it virtually impossible to identify the reality of who’s actually to blame – which is generally the person who finds him/her self consistently pointing a finger.
If you find that you’ve been increasingly subject to negative experiences, you may very well have stumbled upon this article for a good reason: Perhaps it’s time to take as objective of a look at yourself as possible and what it is you’re transmitting to the Universe, so you can take the steps to discovering a more peaceful and satisfying existence. You are urged very strongly to not let your objections get in the way of true self discovery; it’s the only way out of a seemingly pointless life devastated by never-ending travesties.
an Outward Expression of Inward Thoughts & Motives
Do your plan your days around manipulating others to fulfill self seeking motives? Do you offer help to friends in need out of genuine concern or desire to help or do you only do it with an agenda? Are you consistently honest in your affairs or do you tell partial truths or even blatant lies to sway others’ opinions or decisions? Are you sarcastic with friends, service employees, customer service representatives, etc or do you practice patience and consideration of others’ feelings in your communications?
If you find yourself answering on the ‘less desirable’ side of these questions, you are not alone. More importantly, there is time to amend your behavior and practice engaging in more estimable acts such as expressing gratitude in your prayers rather than asking your Higher Power to give you things or grant you certain states of mind; doing something for nothing to help a friend; asking how somebody else’s day is going; making a decision to be rigorously honest in spite of what others’ actions may be; or asking yourself, “Does this really need to be said?” or, “How can I say this without a nasty tone?” before offering a response full of anger and sarcasm.
are Consistent with Who You Are (Like finds Like)
Only in physics do opposites attract. While it’s true that certain personality types are complementary to one another, the core of ‘who you are’ is simulated by those around you. Many people who engage in one or more forms of emotional recovery (therapy, 12 step programs, etc) generally find that a good majority of people they meet outside of ‘the rooms of recovery’ are engaged in similar or identical programs. Conversely, if you are prone to manipulation, dishonesty, sarcasm, selfishness, and other negative traits you tend to find that those are the types of people you attract. As such, it becomes easier and easier to identify as a victim rather than the creator of a self-induced type of Hell on Earth.
Remember that every time you point a finger there are 3 pointing back at you. If you get into the habit of identifying your role in the events of your life, a pattern will begin to emerge. Only once you identify and accept all the poison you emit to the Universe can you take the necessary steps to become a person deserving of all the amazing gifts life has to offer.
