Imagine you’re at the grocery store standing in line waiting patiently for the cashier to finish with the gentleman in front of you. You notice her name tag says “Amy”. When it’s your turn you take a few steps and hear Amy say, “I have to change the tape in the machine.” Slightly irritated you nod but keep your comments to yourself. When she is done and is checking your groceries, Amy is really curt with you, talking to you in a sharp tongue. You start wondering what you did to her and asking yourself, “Why is she talking to me like that? I’ve never done anything to her!” When you get home, you angrily tell your spouse the whole story, leaving out nothing. Then you call your best friend and emotionally relate the same story. You were just an innocent bystander…or were you?
Instead of blaming Amy, you can bet that your own karma was the culprit. In a nutshell, karma is the action and reaction to something that happened. Karma can be instant or it can take years; it is the boomerang effect. In other words, “What you think (speak) about, you bring about, or what goes around comes around.”
Let’s say when you were 15 you yelled at your mom and your mom immediately yelled at you. You were rude and your mom was rude. That one is easy to see and understand. Instant karma: what you speak about, you bring about. You yelled at her and she yelled at you. It’s the boomerang effect in action.
What isn’t so easy to understand is that what you angrily said when you were 17 could boomerang back to you years later when you’re 30, 40 or 50 at the grocery store by a cashier named Amy. Going home and complaining to your spouse, best friend and whoever will listen just keeps the cycle of karma going around and around and around, always coming back to you.
Until you recognize that you have a major part in what’s happening in your world, karma will continue to operate over and over. You might wonder, “How do I get off that merry-go-round?” The answer is easy but hard to do.
1. Recognize that you are the one reacting emotionally negative. You can’t do anything about how another person acts, but you can do something about how you act.
2. Stop telling that story over and over. The more negative energy you give it, the more negative energy will boomerang back to you one day.
3. Show compassion for the other person. After all, you don’t know what they’ve been living through.
4. Ask for divine guidance, have patience and believe you will receive it.
5. Get help if you have an anger issue. Talk to a professional and find out why the anger lives in you.
You can’t beat karma; it will always boomerang back and get you. But you can change your life for the better by reducing your negative reactions and stopping the negative stories. You can show compassion for others and you can seek professional help. And you can always ask for divine guidance. You have choices in your life; make good ones and good will boomerang back to you over and over again. Because karma will always bring you what you give out.
