There is no real “law” of reciprocity in life. You will not always reap what you sow but many times what you sow will somehow disappear, usually by being ignored or stolen by someone else.
That being said, life is seldom if ever fair. Once you face this, you will understand a lot in your life and hopefully live it with great care to your decisions and how they effect you and everything around you.
Not everything is your fault or your responsibility. You cannot control other people or situations to a large degree so don’t try. Do what you can, what you must, but sometimes you just have to let things play out.
It is said that “things will pass” but that does not mean that it will not damage or even destroy some of us. We have seen it or sadly experienced it.
We all differ in our resilience but developing intestinal fortitude will carry you though most of life’s challenges.
It’s OK to let someone else do it. Regardless of some of the hype, you can’t have it all or even some of it at times regardless of how hard you try or how much you want it.
Just “believing” means nothing. What do you believe in? It could be a Fairy tale and that would be foolish. Believe in yourself to keep trying. Believing in God to give you the strength to keep your faith is something worth believing.
When you watch a horror movie about monsters or psycho killers, they all have one thing in common that is supposed to bring fear to your heart.
These “things” will stop at nothing! Is that a character flaw? That alone, no. The reason they don’t stop is they are focused on one thing. Obsessed, if you will, single-minded to get what they want. Problem with scary movies is they usually want to harm or kill someone. Usually it’s some innocent person that doesn’t even know the perpetrator of this evil. Never met them, never wants to meet them and hopes it will crawl back into hell from whence it came!
Complete and utter lack of compassion and empathy is shared by all. I guess that’s why I have no sympathy for murderers of any kind. I don’t compare those that have had to kill in self-defense or for the good of all as murderers or even killers. They did what they had to do against what their personal beliefs were for the good of mankind or to save themselves from someone who didn’t give them a choice in the matter. That is very different from having the heart of a monster. In fact many of those people are heroes.
The real monsters are many now because most don’t believe in God. That belief alone says you have no faith. Faithless people are capable of anything and it’s not likely it will be anything positive. They are empty vessels and all vessels will be filled with something whether they know it or not. Jesus spoke of this when he referred to the body as the house and it was well swept after an exorcism but must be filled in a way as to not invite more evil spirits. He also made reference to serving. Everything a man does reflects his true heart and who he serves. Who do you serve?
All God’s children fill their vessels with love and they share this love in all that they do.
My mother lied to me as a child when she told me there was no such thing as monsters. Every time we listen to the latest horror fest on the news, we know for certain that monsters really do exist. But much like the monsters in the movies, they never win.
I am amazed at the ignorance of people. Many are now of the thought that they should just be doing their own thing, living their dream, letting it all hang out and so on. Sounds selfish to me. In every society we all need to contribute and respect one another. There is no other way. We all have a right to the life God gave us and no one has the right to destroy it in any way. The fact that anyone would think they can harm another and not have the same thing done to them is not realistic.
People that abuse, insult or harm others don’t like themselves and that’s too bad. I often wonder what was done to them that completely destroyed their psyche and hope for happiness and a good life. Maybe they had ignorant parents that were too hard on them or maybe they lack the ability to think thoughts deep enough to even care to understand anything.
I really don’t think that most people get why they are even here because our society is very confusing at best. This poem I wrote is simple, but tries to explain it. Think before you hurt anyone because it is written that it will come back to you one way or the other, sooner or later. Treat others as you wish to be treated even if they don’t deserve it.
As a Christian I do believe in what goes around comes around, reaping what you sow or “Christian Karma.”
John Lennon was truly one of the best song writers who ever lived with a great heart and mind.
So as the saying goes, the good died young thanks to the usual lame, jealous evil.
