The more you help or give to others, the more will come your way.
I have noticed and try to live my life according to this simple rule.
That is Karma at its best. It's like the Universe rewarding you for a good act by encouraging you to keep acting that way.
A few years ago I saw a family walking down the street in horrible weather. I was just leaving for a coffee run and I asked if I could provide the family with a ride home. they accepted and I did not see them again until two years later. The mom had saved my card and looked for me when they were ready to purchase a car. Since then I have sold their family and friends around 12 cars.
i help the elderly. yesterday i blew a tire. I have to buy a doughnut for 25 bucks but christmas broke me. My boss just called an i won 25 bucks at wrk on football pool.
hmmm, I have not noticed that yet, maybe it just does not work for me
Kindness begats kindness. Thou shalt give - that thou may receive.
Aha! Then I must try harder and give more to others. Now I know where I'm going wrong. My bad. Karma
And good to know you guys have reaped the positive seeds you've sown
Karma, the law of reciprocity, whatever you want to call it, it's real and present. The trick is not to give just to get. That doesn't work as well.
of course, life is for help each other, we should not be so selfish !!
We were snowed up last night and watched that old movie classic 'Groundhog Day'. The Bill Murray character is trapped by a blizzard and is stuck reliving the same day over and over and he tries every avenue to find pleasure and ultimately to win the girl he loves.
He only succeeds when he learns to be unconditionally kind to everyone and genuinely turns himself into the type of man she is seeking. At that point he is released from Groundhog Day.
Great movie with a great message!
I do find that kindness and compassion attracts the same into my life. I also find HP works on sharing and helping each other. By leaving a thoughtful comment you might just get some benefit in return, plus its fun. I had the pleasure of a surprise from a comment. Turned out it was written by a talented writer who had not been here long and was so happy to get a first comment and follower that they decided to continue writing here and felt so moved to want to let me know personally that I had been their inspiration to keep writing here! I can't imagine I did anything that big or special but it's touching to have someone say I did. I was very honored and amazed by that interaction.
This thread has made me unexpectedly sad.
I do believe in karma...but I feel so left out of its circle. I've spent many years helping others; giving away money, time, love, energy; giving of myself with love in my heart. I believe that there is a higher power out there who loves us, and expects us to learn to love, and I am trying so hard to live devoted to that.
Now, I am in one of the darkest periods of my life-I don't even want to go into details...but, I just wish I knew where is my karma? Can't I just get...a little break? Haven't I been good enough? I don't know how to be any better.
Maybe its not about if you have been good enough or how to do better. I do not think we can usually see the lessons we are learning until we have moved through them far enough to have the perspective to see those lessons. The what and whys of life are hard to understand sometimes and my best advice when it is hard is to try to endure, as the saying goes 'this to shall pass'. Probably not all that helpful at this moment tho
I think the universe will give back to you - just not in the way you expect. Part of it is seeing the opportunities and little gifts when they're given (which I find can be tricky if you aren't in the right frame of mind).
Is there any thing I can do to help Spider Woman? I will if I can.
I beg to disagree. The more i help others,more people take advantage of me.
I think we need to be selective about to whom we help.
The more you give the more you get back manyfold from my experience.
My family helped others at xmas and in exchange I won a $600 neckless.
I agree, it works for me. Most of the time when I least expect it too!
I think life is a series of choices - what you choose to do makes all the difference and you do have choices - always choosing to help, to be kind, to be considerate, to be even just polite, to do the thing that benefits the most, these choices are the ones that will decide whether your life is really happy or not. When people see that you are good an kind and want them to thrive they will help you out. Sometimes, though, they don't know when you are in trouble - you have to ask for help sometimes and that has always been a hard one for me.
It makes sense to be nice. If you consider that spending time among happy people is so much more pleasant than spending time with miserable ones.
One could almost say that altruism is selfish in that way.

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

Has anyone ever noticed that some African Americans have pink gums and other have brown?Yes, it is a strange question. I noticed it in my kids and myself. I noticed that my gums are pink and some of my kids have brown gums. I wonder if there is something to this.
