KARMA: Spirit’s Debt Collector

Karma is a lot of things, but the one thing that it is not, by any means, is going away without some sort of learning, and more, without the Karmic debt being seen to, no matter what it is.

Karma. Too many people like to think of it as some sort of wishful thing that they can place on another person who pissed them off to the point where they would throw their hands up in the air and say something akin to “I hope your Karma sucks for you for doing what you did!” While they are right in that it  IS some sort of thing that is often used to tell others that they have wronged us and that we hope they suffer the same that we have, what is NOT correct is the idea that we are getting away with anything when we do this.

We don’t realize that everyday we are met with our own Karma, are met with those things that other people put in front of us and that have the potential to irritate us, and can even drive us to the point of not being able to get back to where we were emotionally and this is where the danger is.

I can’t sit here and explain its intricacies, but I will give some examples of Karma that is in the here and Now. Off the top of my head I can think of one person’s life, to this point, where Karma is now the only thing in his life that is absolute. The person in my head right now is an awful person. The person in my head right now for years has always enjoyed saying ugly things to other people, things that are meant to hurt them, meant to make them feel like they are the lowest scum of the earth. He says things to others that sound like he hopes they suffer, a lot. He has, in the past, done things that no honest person would, all in the name of the almighty dollar, and, he has, in the past, wished illness, even death, by his or even their own hand, onto other people, breathing it into life by stating that he hoped that they would end up dead, or at least wishing they were dead, from a massive heart attack. I have heard this person tell his own brother, more than one time, that he is a useless piece of sh*t, and I have heard him tell well-meaning people that he does not need their help and that they should just go f*ck themselves.

And this is his version of mild.

I am sure that you each know someone who is like this, someone who never has anything good to say about anyone else. Someone who feels like it is their job and their right and perhaps even their duty to be a serious pain in the okole, not only to their family, but to everyone. This is a person who takes pains to think of horrible things to say, and this is a person who likes making threats of physical harm, likes saying terrible things about people to their faces for no other reason than that he can. “I have the Constitutional right,” he says.

Again…this is mild. If anyone knew the things that I have heard, been accused of, told to do, threatened people who deserved no threat, acted like a big giant jack-off to people who had less than he had, laughed about it when someone fell ill or even died on the golf course, stating only that the last shot that said ill or dead person took was garbage and that they deserved to be in the shape they were at that time…if anyone knew what I, myself, have been witness to, have been victim to, by this person, you might wonder how it is that I made it this far without having to be put into the Pupule house.

Fast forward to now, and we find that this person is only a shell of what he once thought he was. In these days, what can be called his last days in this lifetime, we can find him and his living carcass wasting away in a miry illusion of self-importance, of hubris bigger than ever I have seen in a person who has no reason and perhaps now no longer a right, to be as haughty as he can be, to be as mouthy as he can be, to be as phony and manipulating as he can be, and all these things he is. Still, he does not see the thing that he and his arrogance have brought him.

What his arrogance has brought him, in no uncertain terms, is the Spiritual Bill Collector called Karma.

Karmic Debts NEVER go unpaid

Ours is a Universe which demands balance, which abhors a vacuum, which rights itself, as well as every other living thing in its arms, no matter what.

No matter what, every single ugly thought, every single threat, every time we have wished something awful would happen to someone else, every single thing that we have done and said and wished and thought and would hurt someone else, make no mistake – we WILL experience the SAME things that we have wanted someone else to go through and suffer by.

Karma is brought to us by our emotional state and the reaction that we have to it, rather than the response. There is a HUGE difference between a reaction and a response. Reactions are primal, are the things that we end up doing from a place of emotion, of irrational thoughts about things, people and events in our lives. A response is something that, after we have allowed the emotional part of our reaction subside, is the thing that we choose to have to address the thing at hand. With a reaction we are ready to strike out and hurt someone else in one way or another, but with a response we are more inclined to think before we speak or do anything. A reaction, in short, has the potential to land us in jail for doing things to other people that we know we should not, and a response is what happens after we think about how anything at all is affecting us at the moment. When we react, shit hits the fan. When we respond, a conversation happens and most of the time, we either come to an agreeable end result, or we simply agree to just disagree.

Of course, the agree to disagree thing completely depends on the people involved – are they the type who will react, or will they respond?

Karma is not something that can be used in the manner that could be akin to a genie in a bottle. It is not something that we can use against someone else. It is not anything that any one of us thinks about in terms of what the truth of it is. Karma is the great equalizer, is the thing that we each set up for ourselves when we set out to do something not on the up and up. We are responsible for our own Karma, but we are not who will exact or enact any sort of Karmic anything on anyone else. That is for Spirit to dole out and us deal with.

Going back to the guy who is dying, let’s think about an example of how it was that he “built” his “empire,” all in the most dishonest possible way that he could. Now, I am not gonna sit here and tell anyone that the person who he did this to did not deserve the Karma that met him through this other person’s actions. I will say, though, that all of the things that he has done, to this point in his life, obviously were not the right things to do, were not morally correct, were his Karma lying in wait for him.

Say you are short on money, and your dad owns a wheel company, and you need some money to pay your household bills or perhaps food for your family, so you decide, without your pops knowing, that you are going to take a set of wheels so that you can get your bills paid and feed your kids. You do it one time. You get away with it. Along comes something really cool, something that you really want to have, and again, you steal a set of wheels to finance what it is that you want, rather than need. This happens again and again, and goes on for years, and finally, one day, your dad dies, and you are out of luck because not only can you no longer steal from the man (and let’s face it – I am not one to judge too often or too harshly, but even his dad deserved what he got from both of his sons – he was the ultimate grift-master who was as thankless as at least one of his two sons.), but now, you don’t even have your dad around to make amends over what you did on your own selfish behalf to him. And yes, it was to his father, who was an abuser.

There are no more sets of wheels to rob your now dead father of, no more people in the industry who are willing to buy these tainted wheels, no more way of getting things that you think you need (but are actually, through your waning ego, things that make you feel like you have been fulfilled…not…). No more ways of getting more than what you are due.

Eventually, everything that you thought you owned somehow is no longer in your possession because you could not keep up with the lifestyle that you stole from your dad, and once he croaked, there was no more of that freedom of taking what you wanted instead of needed. Your house is gone. Your cars, gone. Your “friends,” gone. Your family lost all respect for you and now, too, they are, in an emotional and spiritual sense, gone and never to return. The life that now you will only see in your memories – gone, for good.

And why?

Because everything that you ended up with via means of that dirty money was also dirty, meaning that you were dirty and that since it was that you were dirty by that money and since it is that someone, while you were on your “shopping” spree at your dad’s shop, might have lost their job because the wheels that you stole were wheels that were sold to someone else and now that those wheels are gone. The money that the actual, first customer who ordered them legitimately from the company had to be returned, and the person who lost their job was the original sales person who needed the money from the sale of that set of wheels.

And you stole them. You stole them for what? More stuff? You needed more stuff? You didn’t have enough stuff already so you needed to steal someone else’s stuff so you could sell their stuff and get your own stuff that you didn’t need? Do you still have that stuff?

Probably not. And why?

Because the rules of Karma apply, that’s why.

Karma is not so much the punisher as much as it is the equalizer. Whatever it is that we want and wish for, so long as it is for the good of the whole of us, you will have, but not without some work on your part. Whatever it is that you want and wish for that you choose to take the easy route to getting, you will still get, but you will lose, because somewhere in the Cosmic soup you chose to skip a few steps, chose to not go through the work part, not study that which was in front of you to see what might be there for you that would have caused the Karma to not be.  You chose to take shortcuts, chose to take whatever it was that was someone else’s, doing so without any kind of thought, not only about what might happen to those other people, but really, no thought whatsoever about what you were doing to yourself.

There are lessons, and then there are karmic lessons

We are all meant to learn lessons, lessons which will take us along the Path we chose and which will greet us, from time to time, with heart ache. However, some of those lessons which we will have to...HAVE TO learn throughout this lifetime are not only meant to teach us, but are meant to teach us what it is that we wished so dearly to happen TO someone else, are meant to let us know what it was that we said, wished, thought about, orated to, took physical part in, WILL HAPPEN TO US.

Think about every time you said something to or about someone, and every time that you said that you wished something bad would happen to someone else, how every time you did that, somehow, perhaps not right away, you ended up going through the very same things. I am reminded of a conversation with a very important person in my life this morning, about things that have happened in his life, and how it is that he survived through what could have been a LOT worse than it turned out to be. I told him that for every stupid, horrible, nasty thing that anyone else has done to him, no matter what, those things or things like what happened to him WILL be happening to this other person. All what happened to him and was brought to his life was done purposely to hurt him, to kick him in the proverbial head and to make him suffer, simply for being who he is.  There really is no way out of making right the imbalance caused by hurting other people on purpose.

It is nothing for those who can be called The Overlords of Doucheland to think of the bad things in their lives that befall them as being just coincidence, as being just another thing that happens that is a part of everyday life, and especially, as being something that someone else brought to them and that they now have to deal with.

And technically they would be right.

However, what they are not thinking about at that point is everything that they did in the past, everything that they thought about in the past, everything that they wanted to happen to someone else as being the thing that they set up for themselves to experience, just because they wished that much on someone else.

Be careful, seriously, for what you wish for, because the person who you wish it for, good or bad, may end up with that wish becoming true.

And so, too, will you also go through every single ugly little thing that you wanted to happen to them or anyone else…really…

Don’t believe me?

…wanna test that theory?

Didn’t think so…be good to each other…

I LOVE YOU ALL
