I was responding to a reply to a series of replies I have been having with http://robertmgoldstein.com, a man with tremendous insight. A man who takes the time to understand the workings of his mind, to make sense of his life. I was going to put the exact post this reply was on but realized, if you haven’t been to his site, you would most likely benefit from going. But I decided to put my reply out there to you – to see what you thought. Do you agree? Disagree? Does it make sense to you? Can you apply it to your life?
hmm . . .I think that very often, people lack appreciation for their life. We use so little of our minds. I try to stretch mine, to understand things that don’t make sense. For example – someone does something to you. You don’t think you deserve it and are a victim of the intentions of someone else? It is done “to” you for no reason? Do you not want to take responsibility for it because you are angry? Today, that is my quest for understanding. There is something deeper going on. We can call it several things depending on what you believe. 1. You reap what you sow. 2. What goes around comes around. 3. You get back what you dish out. 4. the law of cause and effect. If you have ever uttered any of those words, then why is it that things are done “to” you and it isn’t your fault? Whatever you sowed, you reaped. whatever went around came back around and smacked you. If you dished out something negative – or positive – you get it back. If you made a cause, you will get an effect. If you jump off a building you will smack the ground. You can’t choose when you want cause and effect too work.
I am also in total awe of life. If people spent more time accepting responsibility for everything that happens to them in their life, they would feel less like a victim. They would be more considerate about the way they treated not only their own life – but others lives as well. This is why you can “feel” the power of the words people spoke or wrote that you admire. But if you only listened and said “that’s nice” and it didn’t affect you in any way to apply what you learned to your own life, we would have exactly what we already have now. So much hate. People not caring who they hurt. Using religion as a weapon. But even if we change one small thing inside ourselves it will show on the outside. The microcosm and the macrocosm.
