Karma Comes to Call

I find it sad when people refuse to see Karma working in their lives.Yes, I know there are many different thoughts on how and when Karma manifests, some say She doesn't work in your current life, while others believe you pay for your transgressions as you walk in this time and place. Me? I lean more towards the latter, I believe a person lives what they give.

If you've been peaceful and nurturing, loving and giving, open minded and harmonious, you will receive the same blessings in your current daily life. If you are judgmental, close minded, unhappy, dramatic or all around generally unsettled, you will live nothing but negativity. I also believe there are some who think they are honestly living a good, positive, and loving life that receive the Karmic backlash without understanding She has come to call on their life.

I am in NO way a saint, I have my flaws, I do however try my best to be open and loving to everyone and everything I encounter in my daily journey through this life I have been given. I give second chances, I consciously try to be a loving, caring and giving wife, mother and friend, and in general be as good a being as I possibly can.

Yes, I have my flaws... I have a horrible temper when I have been pushed to the extreme. I've learned to not let things upset me as much as they have done in the past. I've learned to let go more easily those things or people I believe have *wronged* me. I am an ever growing, ever evolving human. One who isn't perfect, can recognize my imperfections and then take the necessary steps to make the changes I need in order to bring harmony to my life and those I come in contact with. I acknowledge I am a work in progress and have many more miles to travel.

Has Karma visited me?? ABSOLUTELY! And let me tell you, I quickly decided I didn't like her paying those negative visits to me and made some major changes to my life. Is my life perfect? NO! And I know if I don't constantly work on the imperfections in my mind, body and soul, She will come back stronger than before.

Unfortunately, there are those who cannot recognize their symptoms as Karma coming to pay them a visit. Those people think things look great through their *rose colored glasses* and have no idea the ramifications of the things they are doing or may have done.

When a person is close minded (even though they *swear* they have an open mind), they can tend to be judgmental and condemning, all the while preaching they don't care how someone lives, what they believe or what their sexual orientation is. In one moment they say they don't care and *support* diversity, in the next breath might condemn a person by saying being Gay is a choice.

In my not professional opinion, this type of person/people is a backlash waiting to happen. It's just too bad they won't recognize the symptoms and will blame something else. Stress, anxiety, being overworked, not liking changes...or my favorite excuse... someone else is controlling their life/surrounding/emotions and they need to figure out how to get back in charge.

Maybe when they have had enough trips to the hospital for panic attacks, anxiety or even a suspected heart attack, will these types of people finally figure out they control their own destiny and make some very difficult changes to their every day life and surroundings. The changes need to come from within, deep down soul searching. You have to be comfortable with your dark half before your light half can do the work it is supposed to do. Burying your head in the sand and trying to convince yourself and those around you that the world is all light and love, sunshine and rainbows just make the changes that much more difficult.

Has Karma come to call on you lately?
