Karma: Energy Starts With You

To attain good Karma you must put good energy into the universe.

Do not expect to have good things and energy come your way without effort.

Making sure you take care of yourself is a very important part of this.

If you do not take care of yourself and have good energy and within yourself, what you put back into the universe will be limited.

If you take care of yourself, the good energy you put back into the universe may be limitless. 




Letting go of Hate

The choice to let go of hate for anyone that is causing you pain, or has caused you pain in the past is not an easy one.

We let go of hate not for the other person or thing but for ourselves. 

Letting go doesn’t mean forgetting and it doesn’t mean giving up. It just means we have acknowledged a situation and we must learn from it and move on. 

Letting go of hate is an act of self-care and self-love. 

In this act we free ourselves. In this act, we free our soul, our spirit, our mind and our life.

We are not weak for letting go of hate, we are stronger, more dedicated, more focused, and able to see more clearly when we tear down this wall.

Do not confuse my lack of hate for a lack of caring, a lack of understanding, a lack of perspective. In fact, my understanding, my perspective, my compassion, my calm, my passion, and my desire to understand is greater for letting go of hate. 

Giving into hate is the easy way to empower oneself against unjust people and things. Hate feels empowering it slowly wraps itself around us and destroys us. Even in the case of the most righteous of causes.

I knowledge there is evil and unkindness in this world. I will try to understand it and deal with it to the best of my ability. I will fight against injustice, harm, and pain. I will do this without giving into hate.

I am not weak without hate. I see the world more clearly. I am strong.


Small Kindnesses


Many people do small kind things for friends, family members and people they know.

Many do medium and large acts of kindness for family and those they truly care about.

We often forgot, to do small acts of kindness for strangers, maybe it’s because we believe only larger acts will have an impact.  This is not true.

Small acts of kindness not only make you feel better and they are an act of self-care and good karma and they pass along a bit of kindness and good energy to something or something else as well. (Unless you go around bragging about every nice thing you do then you aren’t doing them for the right reasons, and this make have a negative impact.)

Small acts of kindness are not hard.

-Hold the door for someone even if you’re late, or the weather is bad.

-Let the person in front of you in line at the store, cut back in front of you after they forgot that one single item in the store.

Pick up litter even if it is not yours as a kindness to this home we call earth.

Leave out small makeshift shelters for stray animals or wild animals in the winter. (I see a lot of bunnies where I live.)

When you are mad at someone or something, say nice things to people you are not mad at.

Even if you are having a horrible day, find time today and every day to do and say kind things to friends, to family, to loved ones, acquaintances and yes to random strangers you may never see again. Even do it to people who are not kind to you, this is a hard one I know!

One kind act a day makes us and the world less gray. 😉
