karma has a new opponent. and she might be worst

you’ve heard of the law of karma. if you haven’t, it’s simple. what you do to others will ultimately happen to you. there’s more, but that’s all you need for this note.

I think there’s either another law that runs parallel to the law of karma. or replaces it. that’s not the important part. I’ll get to the important soon.

each day I’m getting more experiences that this newly realized law is this: what others do to you, you will ultimately do to others. and it’s the “ultimately” part that I’m watching very closely. I’m trying to figure out whether we have a choice in the matter or not. of course you’d love to have a choice, and jump to that conclusion. I’m not so sure.

a customer of ours calls me and ‘pressures’ me into delivering a print job. I call the printer and put him under the same unpleasant pressure. I almost even use the same words. this is a simple example where the 2 situations are obviously related. and I chose it for that reason. I’ve experienced many other not so obviously related situations, where I put non-related people under the same situation that I was put in. pleasant and unpleasant. and so much that I can’t ignore it anymore.

ok. so the important part is this: knowing that it is possible for you to have to treat others the way you are treated, when you are mistreated, try consciously not to mistreat someone else. it’ll make you and them a better person, and everyone else down the chain — since they will not in turn mistreat someone else, and so on. so the benefit is humongous. break the chain.

and do let me know in a comment if it works out or not. or you could just have this awareness in the back of your head, and watch for any situations that abide by this newly realized potential law. and please come back with a comment so we can all validate this.

if you choose to help out, thank you so much. if not, at least try to break the chain. yours, will

    this all makes sense to me. breaking the chain is what is needed to be done. pretty hard to do, but achievable:)

    Puisque, selon N. : ?? L’Amour est l’??tat dans lequel les hommes ont le plus de chances de voir les choses telles ne sont pas. ??Et sachant que: ?? A lutter avec les m??mes armes que ton ennemi, tu deviendras comme lui. ??, et: ??Quand on lutte contre des monstres, il faut prendre garde de ne pas devenir monstre soi-m??me. Si tu plonges longuement ton regard dans l???ab??me, l???ab??me finit par ancrer son regard en toi. ??

    Et parce que: ??La vie n’est-elle pas cent fois trop courte pour la passer ?? nous ennuyer? ??Alors : ??Le royaume des cieux est un ??tat du coeur. ??

    I loved the reverse form of karma: It makes much more sense and forces us to be accountable for our reactions. One way to learn to control your reaction is taking a humorous technique; for example, tell the concerned party (your print shop supervisor) what your client pressured you to do in his exact sentence, and then make a joke on your client. In this way, we disseminate the new definition of karma more effectively and quickly.

    I left your notes when you first published them. Today, I found myself coming back. Not sure why. Maybe I’ll figure that out once I process it. This note is particularly hard for me to read. Your law is a question I asked my Intro to Psychology teacher in the summer of 2007 at uni. She said it is possible (to break the chain) but incredibly hard. I watched myself sustain the chain for years, it took 7 years to break it. If anything, I learned this, being aware is a huge first step, making the conscious decision is a leap, but taking the action…that final step seemed to be impossible, no matter how aware and how many times I promised myself to stop/change. Looking back, my journey taught me this: you need to heal first. When we are pressured or mistreated, whether we are aware of it or not, we are hurt, the heart is deformed, distorted. I can make all the decisions in the world not to do it to others, but it won’t become my reality until I acknowledge that that heart wants its right to heal and regenerate. That could be with or without the person involved. It could take 5 minutes, a day, or a year. It could be through meditating and reconnecting with the self, praying, dancing, or just talking about it, even if it seems silly like a phone call, or someone pressuring you at work, or the kind of stress people say is natural (which I don’t think it is)….talk about it. Ok I’ll shush now. Sending some love.

    <div dir="ltr"><div>Thank you Sara for taking the time to write back. And taking the time to come back and read. There's a lot of wisdom in your words. Maybe also screaming and jumping as soon you wake up also helps ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have yet to try it. I'll try in the morning if I can remember.</div> <br></div>

    hehehe well it wasn’t exactly screaming, was it? Maybe just making weird sounds? hehe I still do that, I’m told they’re getting weirder! But I’ve shifted from jumping on the bed to strange acrobatic movements on the bed! ๐Ÿ˜› Find whatever works for you! all my love.
