Do you believe in Instant Karma Justice?
Yes , I believe in instant karma.
Few days ago me and my friends returning from Ahmedabad. So we are sitting at ranip (Ahmedabad) bus stand. As our bus was late we were waiting for the bus. As its nearly 10:30pm we were very tired and we still have to go to mehsana. Suddenly a young man nearly my age came and asked me that I have to go these place and how can I go there. He looks decent. I told him that you can go by amts . He told me that his friend was going to come but he didn't came here . He also told me that he didn't have the money right now, can I help him. He asked me that can you give me 40 rs so that he can reach his home. I firstly doubted that he might be trying to cheat us but as he look decent so I helped him and gave 40 rs. 20min later I got the bus and I reached mehsana nearly 12.10 am . I knew that auto rickshaw will charge me 50 rs for the journey but as we know that when you do good deeds , good deeds done to you. I finally got rickshaw and reached to home . I asked about the charge he said give me 10rs only. I was shocked. Suddenly that 40rs help came to my mind and it felt me really good.
Do you believe in karma?
I absolutely do. But my definition of Karma has nothing to do with vengeance.
When I got cheated upon by my ex husband and found out within six months of marriage, all I wanted was revenge. “ something bad should happen to him, he should suffer like I did, I should go out of my way to cause him hurt", and then I realised all of that was nothing but bullshit.
First of all, what happens with people who hurt me, is not in my control. I am neither their conscience keeper nor their moral compass and its not my job to ensure they get punished for being assholes. People play the roles they want to play, and if they choose to play an asshole, that's about it. I cannot do anything about it, but what is in my control, is how I choose to let or not let their dumbfuckery define my life.
When you bear grudges against people who hurt you, you allow them to take up space in your life. The moment you disassociate from them, saying that “ This person is toxic for me, and I need to stand up for myself now, I need to protect myself now", you remove them out of your picture. The moment you do that, its over. Now whether they die, or live, or get punished or instead flourish, is none of your business, because its not your picture. Yes, there is a feeling of vindication, when you see someone who hurt you suffer, and pay for their actions , directly or indirectly, I will not deny that. But that joy never lasts long term. Because Karma is not about them. Karma is about you and your picture. Karma is going through absolute shit hell, and coming back right up like a queen.
I am of course, not talking about legal cases.
When I was going through my divorce, which itself is a painful process altogether, thats what I told myself.
