Let’s say you intentionally hurt someone. You may have had a lot of reasons at the time such as:
- display of macho or ego
- you lacked sensitivity
- you wanted to injure the other party
- you are sadistic
- you are just a jerk in all regards
Karma is watching, lurking and will get you. It may take days, weeks, months or years later, but it will get you. No not necessarily in the “next life” as many believe, but in this lifetime and maybe in the not-to-distant future.
Karma will spring into action, sooner or later, to teach you righteous thinking. It will find a way to send back to you a variation of the bad things you did, or the bad intentions, or the bad thoughts or all of that. It will spring something on you to ensure you experience what it is like to be the recipient of extreme insensitivity. And if you don’t get the message at that time, Karma will repeat and repeat until at some point, it will “dawn” on you that you are acting with insensitivity toward another person.
Rule: spread joy, Karma will send you joy. Spread harm, Karma will send that back to you.
