Hidden Karma: On Why You Can’t Always Witness the Karma of Others
If you are a believer in karma, or the idea “you reap what you sow,” there have undoubtedly been moments in which you have wanted to take this universal law into your own hands. There is always that one miserable person who seems to have better luck than most, leaving you scratching your head and buckling your brow in disgust. “Why do they get all the breaks?!” Trust me, they don’t!
The Karma Conundrum
The problem with karma is that though it is guaranteed to come back around; however, it is not a guarantee that you will get to watch and delight in the suffering of others. This is where the issue comes in for most, we as humans, are only able to go off of what we can see and what we hear, karma is certainly not always that neat. Yes, it would be awesome if we all had front-row seats to watch the things that someone does to you, come back to them. Life rarely works out how you want. If someone is financially better off than you and seem happy when you see them, doesn’t mean they are really happy. The reason many people believe that karma isn’t working is because we are all on the outside looking in on the lives of those around us.
For EVERY Action…
For every action there is an equal reaction, this is the universal law. If you put negativity out into the world, then it will come back to you. Typically, negativity will come back with increased intensity because as we have learned, energy can never be created or destroyed. All things come out in due time so before you take to steps to avenge yourself against someone who has wronged you, do keep in mind revenge karma exists. As the saying goes: “before you seek revenge, dig two graves, one for them, the other for yourself.”
