There are some things that happen in life that are shocking and you are left pondering over the why and how for some time.
Sometimes you just can’t explain it, it becomes unfathomable and then you have to let it go.
I’m a great believer in Karma and although when tested, the easiest thing is to react when something happens, we have to remember there is a bigger picture out there. Sometimes it’s hard to move away from it as mixed emotions throw your concept of sense out the window.
Breathe. Be alive; remain living – continue in your existence!
I want to master the art of breathing and meditation one day and let calmness take over my body when I’m tempted to scream, yell or hit the walls. It will happen eventually but it needs a lot of self-control, practice and patience.
How nice would it be to just channel your whirlwind of emotions out, leaving you in a relaxed calm and steady state? It seems peaceful just thinking about it.
I do believe that perhaps more focus is needed in certain situations and for me, I need to remember that every action, has a reaction – Karma.
Karma is the law of moral causation, a law in itself, which operates in its own field, without the intervention of any independent or external ruling agency.
The Samyuta Nikaya states:
According to the seed that’s sown,
So is the fruit you reap there from,
Doer of good will gather good,
Doer of evil, evil reaps,
Down is the seed and thou shalt taste the fruit thereof
I’ve been thinking of Karma and testing situations of late and have my own mantra to try to live by.
K– Keep strong and embrace . What has happened, happened for a reason – to learn, to experience, to grow
A– Appreciate the nice things in life and don’t let anyone or anything hold you back
R – Regret is not a thing you should entertain – think of it as experience. Reaction is not needed as what goes around comes around
M– Make good of what’s done and learn to love, live and move on. Life is too precious to let anything stop you
A– Attention is needed to focus your thoughts, learn from the universe and what it is teaching you – how you deal with things will affect your life moving forward
Karma is a two way street, good and bad so keep doing good and enjoy what life has to offer.
Happy Sunday people.
