I believe in karma and something called the “Law of Attraction”. What do these things mean? You often hear people say “what goes around, comes around”. This is the belief that you get what you deserve. If you put positivity and goodness into the world, that’s what will come back to you. If you’re a bad person who does bad things and you enjoy making others unhappy or you enjoy wreaking havoc in their lives, you’ll get yours in the end. This is karma. I saw a cartoon once for a place called the “Karma Café”. It said there are no menu’s because you get what you deserve. The “Law of Attraction” is the belief that what you think about is what happens to you. If you are always negative and pessimistic, don’t be surprised if nothing ever seems to go your way and that bad things always seem to happen to you. Negative and pessimistic people also seem to worry about everything all the time. On the other hand, if you are positive and optimistic, you will find that things usually go your way. Most of the time I am a positive and optimistic person. Yes, I am an imperfect human being and sometimes I am tired and grumpy but in general most things in life go my way. Although I am not a perfect person, and my life is not perfect, I am very blessed and I have been the recipient of much kindness and many good things in my life. I try to be grateful for all of it, whether it be my granddaughter’s laughter and smile, my Zen moments where I am one with something bigger than myself, or maybe for something as simple as a really good sandwich. Let me share a couple of really good quotes that re-enforce what I am saying. Wayne Dyer, who wrote a book about the Tao, a book based on Chinese philosophy, says, “Change your thinking and change your life”. Another of my favorite quotes is from Mark Twain who said, “I’ve lived through some really terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened”. Put nothing but goodness and love into the world, think positively, and be optimistic and hopeful. I truly believe that if you do these things, your life will change for the better.
