I have done good and I have done bad, and I’ve seen Karma, which also translates to “for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap,” unfold in my life.We only grow when we realize how life works and how our actions produce certain results. Some are easier to understand than others and, no, we cannot find the pulse in everything that transpires, but when we can, we learn what works and what doesn’t. Especially the older we get. It’s only then, after years, that we can look back at the bigger picture and say “Oh! Right!”
Friendships to me have grown to be very important, especially in the last ten years. Before that, it was a bit like each one to one’s own. Now, I’m reaping the love I put into those relationships and I’m in awe and happy that this is when I can really say “You reap what you sow.”
I’m not one to believe I’m deserving of anything, and I rather help than be helped, but as I talk to my friends of late and tell them how grateful and surprised I am, at how people are helping me out in these tough times, they tell me this very same thing: you reap what you sow, Laura.
I never do anything expecting anything back anymore. That was part of my youth. Now, I do things because it feels right and good. My last thought, though, is that expression from the bible. Once you focus on other’s wellbeing, the rest is up to life.
