I received an email from someone telling me that my channel being cyber attacked, was my karma coming to bite me. Some people are so superstitious! I was a little superstitious when I was younger and would never walk under a ladder — until I got a job in construction and I would have to walk under a few dozen ladders everyday. The amazing thing was that my life got no worse, but actually improved!
Most people who believe in karma, like to pick and choose when it applies. If you are going to believe in it then you must accept the idea that whenever something crappy happens to you that it is your karma. Deformed babies being born in Baghdad from the depleted uranium fallout? is it their karma? If you believe in the idea then you would have to say, yes!
It’s a concept that I have viewed from every conceivable angle and I prefer not to use the word karma. There is a heaviness to it and it generally comes with a lot of one sided judgement. Understanding the Universal Law of Cause and Effect seems to be a far more balanced way of looking at the world and events and takes the superstition out of it.
I remember a wise man once say to me that when someone stands out and shines their light brightly, they will inevitably be attacked, and if you look at history, many of them even killed for being true to themselves and others.
If you want to avoid criticism and even attack, then simply conform. Do what everyone around you expects you to do. Don’t stand out in any way and don’t speak out in any way.
Instead I choose to focus on topics that are most helpful to people, but, which also very interestingly tend to push peoples buttons the most and cause the greatest reaction. Diet, money, conscious living, sex and veganism to name but a few. Remember, whatever pushes your buttons the most, is what you can learn the most from and can be most valuable to your life.
