Karma(….here we go again!)

March 16, 2011

What goes around, comes around. He’ll get His!  One good deed deserves another.You get what you pay for.  For every action there is an opposite but equal reaction. The good or bad you do to others is requited.  It’ll all come out in the wash. What goes up must come down, …. and round and round we go, where we stop, nobody knows.

Have you ever met brand new “old” friends? Could this then explain the feelings one gets when they meet a new person and feel as though they have known them their whole life already? Were they friends or relatives from a past life?  Could this also be the same feeling as seeing a new place that one has never been to and yet felt as though one is at “home”? Isn’t there a remembrance? We’ve lived there before and we know it. The word Deja vu from the French, from déjà, “already”, + vu, “seen”, means “already seen”.  Been there, done that.

Whenever I see Civil War Reenactors I wonder how many are just reenacting their own past lives. 

Life’s current unexplainable fears may be the result of bad past life experiences.    A fear of heights, a fear of open water, a fear of closed spaces could all be the result of bad experiences in the environments or situations of a past life. 

Our talents could be the result of many past lives in that career or occupation.   Maybe Mozart was a musician for many, many lives.    Maybe Albert Einstein was Isaac Newton. Then maybe Isaac Newton was Galileo Galilei.   Then maybe he was……you get the picture.

It’s not just the things we do that have effect,  it’s also the things that we don’t do. There are the sins of commission and the sins of omission.   Not only must people love one another but they must also stand up for one another.   Besides helping them and loving them we also must stand up for them.  Their business is our business(unless they tell us otherwise).

Although I like to figure what the outcomes and possibilities are for karma, it also scares me because it is right on the cusp of me judging them.    Should every World War German officer come back as a Jew, should every Plantation Owner come back as a slave?  Should every laborer become capitalist or every servant become exalted King ?  It’s not for us to say but for us to tread lightly ourselves.
