Daily Reflection (01/29/13)
Hello Tryst family! I apologize for the delay in getting the daily reflection to you! I have had a very busy morning! Please do not think that I forgot to give you the reflective words of the day, and even though it’s now passed lunch time, or around lunch time if you are living in the Pacific and Mountain time zones, we still have day light left to reflect on today’s thoughts! Today I want to reflect on some karma baby! Karma, is something that I am very in to! Karma is something that I could write an entire book on, as so many great writers already have. For those who don’t know much about karma, do a little research!! I am including a link right HERE to a great site on karma called ‘Basic Buddhism: The Theory of Karma’, which is a good read on the subject. Or wander over the Urban Dictionary, which I love, for more quick information on karma! (You can also find a link to the Urban Dictionary on my Blogroll because I just think it’s fantastic! 🙂
You ever hear the phrase, ‘What goes around, comes around’? Well, that is karma. The word itself comes from Buddhist and Hindu philosophy and it’s the simple belief that if you do good/nice/kind things for others, then good/kind/nice things will happen to you. You ever hear the phrase, ‘karma is a bitch’? Well, that is also true! In my experiences in life, karma has visited me a time or two, and in both situations; good karma and bad karma. I believe that there really is a cosmic connection to doing good deeds and that they have a way of circling back to you. Karma is also very patient. Sometimes it waits a while before striking down upon someone who has not lived a life of goodness and kindness. For any of you who may know someone who is just mean or hurtful to others, and ask the question, ‘when is this person going to get the karma they deserve’!?!?! …Have a little patience. Let it go. Don’t let yourself get lost and fester in worry because karma is working as we speak!
Good things come to good people! Sometimes it may take some time before the wonderful shows up on your doorstep, but it will! Yes, I am an optimist!! So for all you pessimists out there, go get you some good karma today! Go on, try it! It feels good, it makes other’s feel good when someone is kind to them, and while you are out in the world acting on all this goodness and kindness, karma is watching you and waiting to come kiss you! So try not to piss karma off, because the bad side of karma really sucks! Treat people like you would want to be treated! Karma’s only a bitch if you are!
Are you need of some wonderful today? Well go get you some good karma!
Have a beautiful day! ~ Jen
