This is Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to this week’s episode of Minutes on Growth. Last week we discussed self care vs selfishness, how to distinguish between the two and how to take care of your mental and physical health. This week I want to discuss the concept of Karma and taking responsibility for what happens to you – I was fortunate enough to have an article I wrote published on Angels Messenger, where I discuss a story of how after being cyber bullied, an angel card reading and an unexpected guest led me to a more spiritual path at the Kabbalah center. What the story doesn’t mention is that me being cyber bullied wasn’t out of the blue. In grade 9, I unfortunately bullied a much younger child on the school bus and I ended up with a one day suspension, which I thought was the consequence of my actions. However I was wrong, because fast forward 8 years, I was now being the victim of bullying. Now, a lot of times things happen in our life and we say ” Why me? What did I do? I’m so innocent? Why does the universe hate me? ” We fail to see the links. Sometimes its because we are in denial and other times we simply forget our actions because so much time has passed. We fail to see that we are reaping what we sowed years and years ago. But, if we’re able to connect the dots and to step outside our victim zone, we are then able to handle the situation much better, because even if the situation does hurt, we know we brought it upon ourselves so then subconsciously our minds become much more aware of its thoughts and actions. Before we say or do something, we think is it kind, is it nice, is it necessary? Because you want to refrain from spreading any hate or malicious content into the universe – because you know it will come back to you one way or another eventually. In this world, our actions even as a child, regardless of the consciousness behind it, will come back to teach us a lesson. We cannot leave the world the same way we entered it. The karmic cycle teaches us, helps us to grow and helps us to enhance our sense of empathy and compassion, so the next time something happens to you and you feel you’re victimized or how unfortunate it is that you have to face this , ask yourself if you’re picking the fruits of the same tree you planted, and then take responsibility for it. Because ultimately, the universe, energy, god or however you want to name it is fair, and the world spins round and round and so do our actions and thoughts so we need to live more presently, and be more aware and conscious of ourselves and more importantly be responsible for what happens to us. & if you’d like to read my article, then head on over to http://www.angelmessenger.net , under guest posts in the articles section.
Thank you and have a blessed week
