If you believe in karma, you will know we are not punished for our sins, but by them. If we abuse for long enough, the very things that are precious to us, will be the very things we lose. It is something we must all think about.
We do it to ourselves every day and don’t stop to think, we just live our lives. We can’t make decisions based on our own self-absorbed thinking and still expect our lives to work out. We are judged on our intent.
If we choose to put someone in a position just so we can better ourselves, then we can expect at some point to be put in the position we put that person in. Karma will always come back worse than what we hand out. But by association innocent people who have dealings with us can also get caught up in our crossfire and that’s not fair.
Karma isn’t something we experience individually either. When it comes to politics, Dalai Lama and I quote, “when politicians and rulers forget their principles of morality, disastrous events will continue to happen.”
In other words, when the people whose job it is to look after the people they serve, lose their morality, unruly and terrible things will occur. Everything bad that is happening in the world is happening as a consequence of that rule. Animal abuse has increased, they’re also getting caught up in the crossfire.
“According to statistics released by the RSPCA, animal cruelty investigations rose last year to 5 per cent to 149,604, with more than 400 calls a day. Calls to the RSPCA’s hotline rose 4 per cent to 1.15 million calls last year, or one every 27 seconds.” Daily Express (March 2017)
It is important world leaders, and society as a whole do more to correct their behaviour and immorality, and so we can all heal.
