Not feeling the best this week. It’s really nothing serious in the grand scheme of things. However, it’s making me super sensitive to what’s going on in my life. Normally these things would bother me to some extent, but I’d be able to let them go. This time, because I’m dragging a bit, they are sticking to me like glue. I don’t really want to air dirty laundry on this very public blog, but I thought I’d write a little generalized scenario.
Do you believe in Karma? You know, that thing described on the poster above.
I believe so deeply in this concept, that years ago, I even wrote a poem about it.
Life does not have a start line
or finish line.
Life is not about winning a game.
Life does not travel in a straight line,
it glides through a circle.
Your deeds will touch others
as you travel.
Those very same deeds you express
will come back around the circle to you.
This begs the question:
If you cannot trust others in the life circle,
what untrustworthy deeds have you expressed?
Can you stand to face your returning deeds
with welcoming arms,
or do you wait in fear
for the day those deeds return?

What I don’t understand is … why do people treat me like I would NOT have treated them? I’ve never disrespected, nor would I ever disrespect people like it’s been done to me this past week. Did I put out bad karma in some other area, and this is the form karma took in return?
Actually, this isn’t the only time that I’ve been treated this way by them. It happens a lot with these certain people. But, like I said, I usually only get annoyed for a short time and then let it go. This week I’m not feeling good, and I’m really hurt by what they’ve done.
I’ve discussed it with these people before, and they don’t even understand that their behavior is hurtful. They just don’t get it. They think it’s perfectly normal.
Okay, enough griping and feeling sorry for myself on a blog. This too shall pass. It’s just taking a little longer than usual.
Any thoughts on the karma idea? Could I be guilty of bad karma and that’s why this happens to me? Then again, is karma just another guilt inducer? Funny, I brought up the topic of guilt on my blog before (part 2), and now I can add this to the list from that blog post.
It’s something to chew on.
