I have learned that when people hurt me it benefits me to walk away and work on my forgiveness. Some see this as weakness. I see it as leaving the negative behind me and letting Karma work it out.
In today’s fast paced world it’s hard for people to wait for anything and with karma more than likely you will have to wait to see what happens. Karma is not delivered instantly, but it works slowly and steadily. You can be guaranteed that everyone reaps what they sow. Sometimes it may not happen in this lifetime. Reincarnation can often be the result of karma. If you did not complete what you were supposed to in this lifetime you may come back to clear up your karmic past.
It is easy for others to call someone out on their problems but in reality they are battling those same demons. That’s why it’s important not to have a judgmental attitude because you have no idea what the other person is going through. Karma has its own timing and you may not see what happens, but karma always comes back. That’s why it’s important to think and do good in your life. It does not matter what someone else is doing it all comes down to you!
In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, “Do you know what I just heard about your friend?”
“Hold on a minute,” Socrates replied.
“Before telling me anything I’d like you to pass a little test. It’s called the Triple Filter Test.”
“That’s right,” Socrates continued.
“Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That’s why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth.
Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”
“No,” the man said, “Actually I just heard about it and …”
“All right,” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?”
“No, on the contrary…”
“So,” Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about him, but you’re not certain it’s true. You may still pass the test though, because there’s one filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?”
“No, not really …”
“Well,” concluded Socrates, “if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?”
