K Is For Karma

Do you believe in karma? True to be told, most of the times I don't.  It is so hard for me to hold on to my sanity at the moment, since it seems as if the universe is playing some kinds of a game with me.  I think because I was a victim as a child, and as a married woman, I now couldn't tolerate the thought that someone has a right over my life.

To the best of my ability and knowledge, I make a conscientious decision to be a good person.  I don't create troubles for others.  I help whoever or whatever that I can.  I volunteer to tutor Math for elementary children.  I work my butt off to provide a home for my children.  I pay for all the extra expenses that their father failed to provide.

Well, I see myself as a good person, but bad things always seem to find its way to turn my life up-side-down when I definitely know that I deserve a break.  Now the people who, to me, do bad things all the time, but always seem to get the better ends is just simply not fair.  These people are showered with luck in love, and in life.  That left me wondering:  how is that possible if there is karma?

It is just like the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer!  Is that how karma works too?  I've given myself to depletion.  I've placed my life in God's hand.  I've asked just for a little bit of peace, and a less bumpier road to travel, but all I get is more obstacles.

Maybe I did something wrong my past life so now I have to pay back.  Maybe I am just one of those people that were meant to scrape the earth.  Whatever, I'm tired!  I don't want to pray for mercy anymore.  I don't want to believe there is a better world for me after I'm gone, when this world just disses out craps for me to clean up!

I just want to know if there is such thing as karma, and have you experienced it or seen it.  I want to touch it and say: give me good karma, won't you?

  1. Yes I do believe. I wish I could give you lots of examples right now, but they are very long, and I have to leave the house now. Perhaps I will retouch on this to you. You have beautiful children, that is the greatest gift you have been given, you are there to teach and guide them, and have them make better lives for themselves. Your gift will be their successes, whether it is spouses you love and adore and bring you joy, grandchildren, will happen, believe!

  2. some people just seem to be blessed with everything ... others seem to be challenged with one hardship after another ... it's just life ... i tend to think it is randomness ... to me being blessed just seems to be how you perceive it ... i am blessed ... i wake up every day, i don't live in a slum, i am lucky enough to have had a child ... my blessings are small compared to other people, but they are large in my eyes!

  3. I don't believe in karma Mumsy. But I DO believe that many people just like you are good because they choose to be, and not because they expect anything in return.

  4. I believe that everything happens for a reason - we just don't always get to know what that reason is...

    Your children are blessed to have a loving mother who works hard to provide for their needs & who sets a wonderful example for how to treat others!

    Some people who, on the surface, appear to have it all, have their own issues.

    The flower in your post is exquisite!!

  5. Some small blessings get overshadowed by large unfulfilled wants. The world is unfair. One day we'll understand.

  6. I try not to compare my life to anyone else's. It can be depressing. I try to figure out what it is I'm supposed to be learning. I've found that in order to be happy, I've had to mind my own business. I don't know if I believe in karma but I do believe in random acts of kindness.

  7. Wow Just found you this morning from Sue's Views site and glad I did.
    After reading this post it seems we have a whole lot in common. Especially our childhood.
    I don't know what to say to help you feel better but I do know that it is hard to watch others that are not that good become rich and famous but I do believe that we are all here for a reason and God will watch over us and in his time things will be the way they should be. Sometimes it is hard though to wait when your suffering
    Looking forward to being your new follower

  8. i cant belive its meant to be to find you. im your newest follower!
    i feel for you whatever you are going through and am comforted knowing that I am not the only one that feels the way I do.

  9. I don't believe in karma, either, though I do believe that we can get good things back in relationships by putting good things out there. And if we put good things out there and get bad things back, then maybe we are in the wrong relationships!

    Putting good things into relationships with children nearly always pays off, although the results frequently come way down the line, after they are grown. And the waiting can be hard.

    I know your family disappoints you at times. All I can do is suggest that you do what one of my best friends has done. She keeps a cordial but more distant relationship with the hurtful members of her family and has made sort of a "family of friends" out of people she knows she can trust and count on. She really thinks that has made a big difference in her life.

    I hope better things come your way, Mumsy. Sometimes there's just no explaining life, and all we can do is hang on and try to find a few good people to help us.


  10. There are moments and long days (like today) when I feel down and out about how people treat each other poorly. And, I don't feel like putting it all in perspective. But, then, I eventually will because I don't want to give people, known and unknown, the power of making me feel angry, crazy, or depressed....All I can do is do is strive for optimism, be positive, have faith, and be brave about it all. Is that called karma? Does it matter?

    I wish you the best.

  11. Challenges in life come is different sizes. And sometimes we think it is not fair when we see others more blessed, or we think that. I do not know??? Anyway, nice pictures.

  12. I believe we harvest what we sow... but whether that is for this life or over many, I can't say. The bottom line for me is that I have to live with myself, so I may as well be the the best I can be, including honest, decent, kind and loving.

  13. I've always wondered why life is so unfair. I have no idea.

  14. It's many years I've been pondering this one and I've come up with my own theory and I start with explaining I do believe even though I don't practise any faith.
    Say before we come being born we have a look at our past lives and see where we went wrong and who we hurt, intentionally and not. Say, having a chat with "Whoever" we decide to take on certain challenges to 'wipe the slate clean' to give it another go, to try and be a better person.
    Say that these challenges are set at intervals in our life and after crossing each hardship maybe further down the line you look back and realise that your life couldn't have changed unless that certain circumstance had taken place.
    I could go on forever, but maybe we are only doing what we have already signed up to do and we can refuse but our heart our instinct urges us on.

  15. I don't believe in karma, though I do believe in doing good things for others, whether it pays back good or not. If I am good, it means that I, as a person, have integrity and that is important in itself! I also believe that you have integrity. Be true to yourself and always hope.

  16. Mumsy. This is a hard question for me to answer. I try very hard to be a 'good, responsible, caring, loving' person in my life and I always have.

    It has been hard for me to recognize that certain people within a family structure really take advantage of that kindness. I often tell my husband there is a handful in my family that is always mistaking kindness for weakness...and I have quit letting them take advantage of and be nasty to me.

    It still hurts but I am no longer a doormat to anyone elses tendency to bully.

    It makes me sad. But it's how it is in my family...and it sounds like in yours, too.

    Maybe it's not really karma...just being too nice.

    But I appreciate you for your lovely heart and I know others do to. If your family can't see it, it is truly their loss.
