The Golden Rule

22794_10151351629198465_1027482838_nThanks, Daily, but I already believe in Karma.  Science doesn’t need to prove it – people just need to pay closer attention and they, too, would see it for themselves.  The tricky thing about Karma, is that there’s no time frame for when it will strike – good or bad.  Things happen as they should for a reason, people come in and out of your life to teach you things or for you to teach them.  Everything has a purpose, usually a lesson needing to be learned or taught.

Karma has varying degrees, as well.  Perhaps, the fact that your tire just blew on the freeway while you were already running late, was because you cut someone off in the parking lot a year ago when you were in too much of a hurry to think of anyone other than yourself.  The problem is that most people don’t want to associate the bad things that happen to them with bad things they have done.  In their minds, it’s just their poor, bad luck or someone else’s fault, it couldn’t possibly be any kind of negative energy they’ve already put out there.  But all energy rides a boomerang current, and almost every culture and/or religion has some kind of “Golden Rule” that warns against karma, encouraging people to treat others the way they would want to be treated.

There is the universal Rule of Three: “Ever mind the rule of three, what I put out, comes back to me” (negative AND positive!)  In metaphysics, the rule is Tenfold – Yikes!

We’re human, though, so we are equipped with the good and the bad.  We’re not always the upstanding citizens we should be, we have grumpy days, make bad choices and slip up.  Sometimes we get tired of bending over backwards for everyone else and we get a little selfish.  Shit happens.  It’s life and it’s human nature.  And karma is always there to try to keep the scales balanced, even if we’re completely unaware of the fact that that’s the reason why we’re having a particularly good or bad day.
