BAD KARMA

Updated on September 17, 2011
Source

Have you ever met a person who had nothing nice to say about anyone or anything? Sure you have! These type of people exude Bad Karma. Karma is simply the process of cause and effect. For example: If you do good, good things will happen for you; if you do bad things, bad things will happen for you. Well just living we all know good comes to the good and the bad and vice versa. You can not help to notice that when bad things happens to good people it's short lived; however, when it happens to bad people it's one frustration after another one. When this happens many will become more negative and produce bad karma. Now bad people in this topic are not the ones committing hideous crimes against other people; but, bad so far as being negative and attacking other people's characters. I have the blessing of dealing with one of these people on a day to day basis. For the most part, I am graceful when dealing with this person; but there are days when enough is enough.

I am the type of person that has the view of "Live and Let Live" meaning I mind my own business and let others tend to theirs with the exception of their business causing harm to children and the elderly. Now with this being said, this person in my life does not share the same views and has in some way convinced themselves that their opinions are facts and their negativity is a way to live by. Well in my opinion it's "Toxic" and if anyone would give way to it would themselves become toxic. This person is very stubborn and one day she was speaking with her mother about an subject they had previously discussed. Well the mother remembered the previous conversation and decided not repeat her position on the subject. Instead, she was going to let it be. The daughter being the toxic person she is decided this was unacceptable behavior on her mother's part and confronted her mother's quietness. The mother simply replied, I decided if I have nothing good to say, then I have chosen not say anything at all because you are a grown woman making your own decisions. The daughter went on and on to get the mother involved in a dispute. Of course the mother being wiser remained quiet. The daughter said a nasty remark and then went quiet herself.

The mother told me the following day she felt her daughter was out of line and this angered her; but she chose to be quiet simply because she refused to reopen a subject they had already discussed. Her daughter clearly knew where she stood on the subject and for whatever reason wanted to go on about it. Once arriving home the mother went her way and remained quiet. The daughter tried to make small talk to soothe the hurtful words she had said; but her timing was just a bit premature. The following morning while her mother slept in the other room, the daughter awoke to get her daughter's dressed for school. The children being between the ages of 6 and 8 was talking when she came into the room. She heard the end of the conversation so she asked the oldest what did the youngest say. The oldest with her little sister watching replied, she said "fooling with you, she will never get well because you don't give her the medicine she needs." Well this hit her like an ton of bricks. She got a taste of her own bad mouthing about other people including her mother. Her bad karma came back full circle. She found herself later that day, telling her mother she was sorry and told what she had experienced with her own children.

Her mother was filled with compassion to see her child cry even though she had hurt her. Her daughter knew it was karma; but this is the thing. Being a creature of habit will this put her on a better path or will she continue to exude bad karma because of her words and actions? Being an Christian, I am praying it will. Good and Bad Karma, are very similiar if not the same as Wise and Unwise people. Unwise people tend to run off at the mouth without giving much thought to what they are about to say. They do not care if it offends or hurts others, they just say it. A wise person will carefully examine the situation, their words and the people around them before they speak. In the Bible there are many references to the tongue being the hardest thing for an unwise person to tame. Being human sometimes it gets the best of an wise person; but this is very rare. Wayne Dyer quoted: "How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours."

The Bible (KJV) states: Be not deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galations 6:7. Consider "karma" a fruit and you are the tree. What type of fruit would you bear? Would it be good or bad? What you put out is what will be returned to you and it is called karma. I simply cannot tolerate those who disrespect their parents. As children yes we all have rebelled in one way or another; with adulthood comes wisdom and we should know better. The daughter in this story is likened to a tree because she beared fruit which are her children. The bad karma transferred to her children and she beared witness to the ugliness of her actions and words to others. She experienced the pain she gave her mother. Be mindful of how others see you because one day you may come face to face with the horror of your words and actions. Put out good karma and it will be returned. God Bless
