Karma's A Bitch

It just makes sense, doesn’t it? The energy we put out into the universe will come back to us in one form or another, and probably equal to the energy we put out. I’ve been convinced, since learning that the world and universe can be broken down into its rawest elements, energies and reactions, that karma exists. No matter what walk of life you’re from, what religion, if any, you practice, we’re all taught to do ‘good things’ and that, in turn, good things will happen to us.

I’m going to try and avoid all attempts to hippy-fy this post (no one needs a ‘make love not war’ keyboard warrior), but I’m always thinking about this to the point that it’s ridiculous and I’m considering becoming buddha (not really). 90% of the time I get hung up thinking about my actions and how they affect others, and when I don’t everything seems to fall apart (melodrama) or I make a really stupid mistake (I don’t mean calling your teacher ‘mum’ or stubbing your little toe, but mistakes that can hurt others like gossiping).

Jedi time: if there’s this pseudo-not-scientifically-proven(-and-never-will-be) energy everywhere, touching everything, then lets visualise it as an ocean. Our actions cause a disturbance throughout this energy, just like the ripples from a pebble being dropped in the water (this just got deep (puns)). Depending on the strength of the pebble throw, the ripples could cause waves, the waves could turn into tsunamis and… (you get where this is heading) All this devastation and destruction would have originated from one teeny tiny pebble in a gigantic ocean; a lie, gossip, even a misunderstanding.

What I’m trying to say is, every action we take will have an after effect. Have you heard of the butterfly effect? Where, if you travel back 1 million years in time, kill a small butterfly, return to the future, and then suddenly everything’s different; robots rule the earth and your mum can now, miraculously, cook? That thing, that’s what this is like. It doesn’t make you ‘weird’ to be considerate, and this is something I learned whilst I was at uni, living with some of the most inconsiderate housemates in existence.

If we get it right in life, everything should be balanced I guess. As The Beatles said: ”in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make” I want to make sure that the energy I put out into the universe to be positive, and for this positivity to return to me when I most needed. Does that make sense? Or did I just waste your time, yet again, with pointless drivel that was better left unsaid? (If it’s the last one, I’d really appreciate it if you kept it to yourself… that’s what I refer to as negative energy, or being a d*ck)

Thanks again for getting this far; I think you deserve bundles of good karma! Do you think about how your actions affect others? or do you wing it and hope for the best? There’s nothing wrong with doing either! I’d really love to hear your thoughts on ‘karma’ and keeping a balance! Let me know in the comments below, and I’ll speak to you soon!
