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!
“Mirror, mirror on the wall, may I look with love on all.” That was written many years ago. Today I have the rare opportunity to amend what I’ve previously written. The person you see daily in your mirror is you, the most important person in the world.
Yet that mirror image of an independent individual is an illusion! Over the entrance of the United Nations building in New York is carved a quotation from the Persian Muslim poet-mystic Saadi Shirazi:
Human beings are all members of one body.
They are created by the same essence.
When one is in pain, the others cannot rest.
If you do not care about the pain of others,
You do not deserve to be called a human being.
So when you look in the mirror, look beyond the illusion and see the other who is in pain. It is a spiritual evolution to rise above concern for your own needs and truly care for others who are in great pain or suffering.
Give me the insight to see my face
in the faces of all the human family,
to care for others as I care for myself,
so I can call myself a human being.
