Karma is a strange thing. You never know exactly when the karma you put out in the world will come back to you. Is it a year, many years, or a life time? I have observed karma returning to those who behaved hurtfully and harmfully toward others. Now, that karma is coming full circle. In the past, I would sit back and think to myself, they got served what they deserved since what goes around comes around. However, now I actually feel sorry and compassion for those individuals. The most pathetic situation is that these individuals are unaware of their hurtful and harmful behaviors toward others are truly hurting themselves.
The consequence of their unawareness is that they will simply repeat these behaviors over and over again creating this negative pattern in their soul lives. The unfortunate truth is that they will simply suffer the same consequences over and over again. When we walk away from them, we no longer endure their hurtful and harmful behaviors, but these individuals will continue to suffer the horrible life they have created for themselves.
The past anger I had for them for hurting me has transformed to empathy and compassion. How sad is it to walk through life unaware and unconsciously suffering repeatedly as if on autopilot? When they no longer can tolerate the suffering, will they finally stop these hurtful and harmful behaviors toward others? We all have the ability to awake from our slumber, and hold the power within our hands to transform our lives by changing our harmful and hurtful behaviors.
