Do you believe in Karma? I do. I have seen Karma in action several times. The most recent example of karma that I witnessed was when someone I have known for years and who isn’t the nicest person helped a neighbor when they had trouble clearing their snow during a recent snowstorm.
The neighbor had asked for assistance and after some hemming and hawing, this person gave in and helped the neighbor out. It was a generous thing to do. The neighbor has health problems and shouldn’t have been clearing snow at all.
After this person helped out, they received a call thanking them for their help. The neighbor was so grateful and wanted to make sure this person knew how much they appreciated the help.
Here’s the karma kicker, the person couldn’t take the thank you and just feel good about helping out. It became a twisted mind-bending issue for that person. They wanted to figure out what the neighbor really wanted. What was behind their scheme to call and give thanks?
This is karma. A person who has a constant agenda and is always looking to gain the upper-hand can’t understand someone who doesn’t think in the same way. As far as this person is concerned, no one can be that decent. Everyone has a hidden plan if you look hard enough.
So that is what this person lives with. They don’t see people as individuals who can be nice, grateful or decent. People are all selfish, demanding and out to get ahead of another as far as this person is concerned.
The worst part of this story is that there is no way to convince this person that people aren’t all the same. There are many decent people in the world who do not have some sort of secret plan to do something devious.
Karma brings misery to those that create misery for others. Karma brings joy to those who bring joy to others. I’ve seen it happen again and again.
