” The wrong Karma… of Karma… “
Bonjour my so very dear Friends 💗
I wanted to share with you today a few thoughts about my modest personal approach to a very common expression in the American culture, and language, pertaining to invoking “ Karma ! “ … whenever someone does something bad, or hurtful, to us or to those we love…
People do indeed frequently use that expression and its comm on meaning, just as I also used to… until I decided to put some more thoughts into it 😊 or, to be more accurate… to put some more love into it! 💗
Bringing up something to the spirit of “ Well… there is always karma!… “ or, in a sarcastic spirit, “ Good luck with karma on that one!… “ as soon as someone does something hurtful to us, simply DOES NOT seem to me to be ANY BETTER, or ANY DIFFERENT… than what the perpetrator DID in the first place! For he, or she, wished for you (or your loved ones) to suffer / hurt (and they DID make it happen somehow!) and now, you are actually wishing for… nothing any different, nor any better… and if you truly look at it all in an objective and third party observant spirit!…
By “wishing /invoking Karma” you are indeed wishing for something HURTFUL to happen to someone… while at the same stating, and hiding behind the fact, that… it will just not be coming from you… Just claiming as some kind of indirect “warning” to that person that you are just going to let “destiny/karma” please “do justice” on your behalf and bring something hurtful to them or their journey!
And I simply do not see for one instant how that approach could have any respectability nor kindness to it, for it truly does not make the person wishing for that “karma” one bit any better… than the original perpetrator.
And in my modest opinion it actually makes it even worse as that wish is now done in full consciousness, and very deliberately, whereas maybe the original perpetrator was actually maybe not even fully aware of how much hurt they were going to cause you…
Therefore, based on my newfound awareness and analysis of such reality, always now CHOOSING COMPASSION instead of “karma”, for all those who have brought tears and hurt to my days… always CHOOSING to not let other people’s doings ever change any of who I CHOOSE TO BE (to the world, and to myself) just seems to me like such a much kinder and more truly loving choice of being… a much kinder way to live my heart.
Choosing to stick to our personal choices of being kind and being love to others, ” no matter what ” (they do to us), and “ no matter who ” (they choose to be), seems like such a kinder way to be… a kinder way to love… a kinder way to live my heart… 💗
Of course that does not mean in any ways that we should EVER stay within reach of hurt or harm of others!… of course not!!!… and we should definitely always CHOOSE to REMOVE OURSELVES from the surroundings and reach of hurtful people, no doubt about that. But… choosing to do so does not mean that we also have, in turn, to wish “karma” and want any kind of harm or bad luck to them! One thing has nothing to do with the other… unless you choose to make it so.
We CAN ALWAYS CHOOSE COMPASSION for others… while of course ALSO making sure that we remove ourselves from the reach of their hurt… For
As always in our lives, the choice of who we are going to be, of who we already are in this moment, and the next… is entirely our own. Always has been… always will be!
Compassion for others, while also never letting anyone or anything steer us away from our chosen integrity and character, from our own deciding to choose love and kindness, no matter how much we get hurt, just seems, in my modest opinion, like such a better, kinder and wiser choice for our hearts, and for how to life our life’s journey… for it is always indeed, a choice… my choice… your choice…
With much much love to YOU ! 💗
