9 Life Lessons Learned By Karma
What you give is what you get. Some might believe it; some say it’s the biggest lie. Eventually, every bit of action, good or bad, returns
like a boomerang. If you do good, good will come to you. If you do bad, bad will slap you in the face, sooner or later.
People cheat on their loved ones, they steal money to satisfy their greed and they kill people to gain power. They don’t understand that We Are All Connected With Energy and we share that energy with the earth. People destroy the earth and itch they head when we’re hit by natural disasters and global warming. It’s like s*itting in your own yard …
However, I try to change things, starting with me and with this website. I’ve learned that every change starts in each and every individual, and I will try to spread my wisdom as much as I can.
These 9 life lessons I have learned by karma changed my life for good. Let’s see if they do the same for you.
1. “How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” ― Wayne W. Dyer
I’ve met a thousands of pissed, greedy and nervous ba*tards all around. Believe me, if I have treated them the same way they did treat me, I would of have gone to jail by now. I firmly believe this is the way you feel too.
Try to be nice, polite, and gallant. Put aside all your emotions when you meet or get in contact with another person. If you are mad or anxious, count to 10 and reconnect with your present. Treat people from your point of view; let their karma punish them later. You just be a true lady/gentleman.
2. “Even if things don’t unfold the way you expected, don’t be disheartened or give up. One who continues to advance will win in the end.” – Daisaku Ikeda
Struggle is the winner, especially through Harsh Times. We have to fight back the bad times to win the good. It’s been said that some days we are the bug, and some days we are the windshield. When we are the bug it’s time to fight, to struggle through that time.
Have a picture of how things are going to be when you succeed. Imagine it every day, and find your spark of motivation even if you’re going through hell. The more you fight back during worst of times the closer you will get to fulfil the “finish line picture.”
3. “When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on your own weak points.”― Confucius
We have extraordinary examples to follow and yet we chose to be tricksters. Choose and select your character, just as we did in games. Choose the hero, the one that never lose.
Maybe you still haven’t decided what you want to become, but you surely know that you don’t want to end up as a loser. Suck up all the good traits and reflect on your weak points. Become a man of value.
4. “It is impossible to build one’s own happiness on the unhappiness of others. This perspective is at the heart of Buddhist teachings.”― Daisaku Ikeda
If we exult on other people’s tragedy, we will always be miserable. I’ve noticed that in my country and even my close friends, fed up their soul when they see me unhappy. As in #1, I’ve decided that I won’t treat them as they treat me. I will leave their karma do it for them.
I am happy alone in my room, in the crowd of people and I find every source of happiness during the hardest struggles in my life. In my perfect image I see a happy man in the near future and I won’t satisfy until I feel that picture.
Grab every opportunity to be happy and stay there. Make sure it’s not someone else’s tragedy.
5. “Is Fate getting what you deserve, or deserving what you get?”― Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts
This is really triggering question. I think that we all create our fate and we deserve what we get. I believe that we all create our next step and if we are strong enough to walk through hell, life will blossom. It will give us 100 times more than we deserve.
Create your own fate, don’t rely on bingo situations. There is no such a thing as “luck” connected to success and happiness.
6. “Like gravity, karma is so basic we often don’t even notice it.”― Sakyong Mipham
Are you stuck on thinking that you are pulled down every second of your life, or that you inhale and exhale? I don’t doubt that you even think of it, ever.
When we succeed and find our Lifelong Happiness we know that we worked our as* off to gain that, and people from aside might say that you got “lucky”. The truth is, you won’t bother once you’re up there, but to get there, believe with ALL YOUR WELL-BEING that karma will give you everything if you serve it well.
Do until you reach your imaginary picture and enjoy every second of your boomerang of positivity.
7. “A great human revolution in just a single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a nation and, further, can even enable a change in the destiny of all humankind.” ― Daisaku Ikeda, The Human Revolution
As I mentioned in my article that we should have a Code Of Living, we should strive for that uniqueness, like the one that started singing in the mudflats.
As did Steve Jobs made enormous change in the human history by inventing one of the most intelligent pieces of technology “The Apple Computers”, as did Buddha invented the Buddhism and changed the lives of millions for better, we can all start and be that individual to begin a revolution. We are all able to change the destiny of all humankind; it just matters how bad we want it.
8. “Someday people will ask me what is the key to my success … and I will simply say, “Good Karma.”
― K. Crumley
As Crumley states it, we all succeed by “Good Karma.” It means that we shed blood and sweet to gain that. The more we give, the more we take.
And it really is like that. Success is karma. To receive money we have to give money. To gain happiness we have to share happiness. Nothing comes for free these days, especially not success.
9. “Do not overlook tiny good actions, thinking they are of no benefit; even tiny drops of water in the end will fill a huge vessel.
Do not overlook negative actions merely because they are small; however small a spark may be, it can burn down a haystack as big as a mountain.” ― Gautama Buddha
Bit by bit, piece by piece, brick by brick, whole cities and empires were built. One action over another will create indefinite nirvana.
The ones that don’t know this as a fact will never know how to reach the top of the mountain. It’s not said by accident that we all have to “climb the mountain” to succeed. As Theodore Roosevelt said “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”
