Karma is a bitch and she is ice cold! A conversation with my wife this evening just blew my mind.
I repeatedly observe the concept of karma working in my life.
There is plenty of good to go with the bad, but in the post I'll share how bad actions came back to haunt people in my life.
There were several times during a difficult time in my life where some really bad people were able to or tried to bully me, make my life difficult or put me in harm's way. Some of those people have gone on to experience very difficult circumstances.
Their ill fortune was not a result of my thoughts about them as much as it was them finally reaping what they had sowed. Their energy, thoughts and actions finally resulted in something bad happening to them.
Time and time again, when somebody has wronged me in my life, it was not necessary for me to seek revenge or try to sabotage that person.
When I was in the army, I had very good working relationships with the senior officers which resulted in tension and jealousy from two senior specialists.
One staff sergeant constantly made my life difficult and at times even put my life in danger. Eventually, due to extreme fatigue I was involved in a vehicle accident, which saw me spending 6 days in detention barracks. He continued to make my life hell.
Eventually, he was caught selling drugs in camp and spent 18 months in jail. His military career was over.
I did not celebrate that, but I did think of a Chinese proverbs which goes something like: "If you stand by the river long enough, you will see the bodies of your enemies float past." I was talking to my wife just now and we are discovering that when we were teenagers we moved in similar circles and had overlapping groups of friends, but somehow didn't meet each other until we were adults One of the guys in these circles was a really bad person who constantly broke up familes and cheated people out of millions.
He recently met a tragic end which was reported in the news. I had read the headlines but didn't make the connection until my wife told me who he was just now.
Your energy, thoughts and actions will make or break you. Do good deeds and think good thoughts!
