Where are you Karma?

Dear Karma,

I am sitting here wondering where you are at this moment in time. Are you hard at work, meeting with countless amounts of people? Or are you sitting back, relaxing on vacation, dreading having to return to work in the near future? Well, wherever you are, I would like to remind you that there are quite a few people in need of your presence. I feel like me and you tend to meet up quite frequently, but wonder why you don’t arrange visits with other people deserving of your company. I hope you know that your presence is requested, and although you may not want to, I would recommend that you come back to work as soon as possible.


Someone pissed off at the system

Pardon the bitter post, but it had to happen sometime. With that being said, in life there are going to be plenty of times in which people will get away with terrible actions and misdoings, and we are the ones left feeling as though the system is unjust and that the world is cruel. No matter how unfair things may seem, we need to realize that in most situations, there is nothing that we can do. Sometimes it is best for us to step back and let nature take its course. I am a firm believer in karma and like to think that people who commit bad acts will have negative  karma, whereas those who do good for others will have good karma. In lieu of recent events, I will be the first one to tell you that I wish I had the power to make people pay for their crimes, but since I can’t, I guess I’ll just be taking it easy and worrying about myself, hoping karma will strike down soon.

    This could not have come at a more perfect time, and I can’t agree more. I do hope Karma wakes up because I have a few people that deserve a visit – and SOON. I just hope that the good Karma I feel I have put out will come back to me again soon. I don’t know what I did to deserve the week I have had but I have to believe that it was just a test of my ability to bounce back and keep my head up.

      Welcome to the club Jen! It’s nice to see that I have company lol but karma will hopefully kick in soon and we can receive the good karma that I like to think we deserve 🙂

    I can’t tell you how much I identify with this post. I too try to live positively, and struggle through daily life, yet have moments or even a couple of days once in a while that I reflect on this very thing.
    I also believe in Karma, and I’m hoping some of the good I’ve done will have Karma vested upon me…
    This post was just great…I think a lot of people struggling out there can identify with it!

    Wonderful post Dan! I am also a strong believer in karma and have wondered these same things myself. Thanks for giving voice to so many of our own thoughts!

    It always begins with us; within there’s a power if handled properly, can change the universe

  5. Dan, You are human and this is how it goes yes? I really believe what my Dad told me “we don’t know WHY this is happening right now; but someday we will. We will be better people for it” sure enough he has turned out to be right. Karma. It works and you may not see the fruit AND What ever it is that the Universe doles out just makes us more US.

    I love your honesty and your self awareness.

    Peace, really anger too but Peace in between…. Jen

      You always do know what to say! Your dad was definitely right because although at times it may be difficult to understand why certain things happen, in the end I like to think that things will work themselves out- especaially with the help of Karma. 🙂

  7. When I was younger, if something would go wrong in my life, my dad would tell me, “Well, life is unfair.”

    Later, I would question why it only ever seemed like things were unfair to ME, and not to anyone else. To which my dad would respond:

    “Because life is unfair.”

    Even though it seems like you and I differ on whether or not life is actually unfair, I agree that it’s best to just worry about yourself and things you can control. That’s not always easy to do, but it helps A LOT.

    • danbalva says:

      I definitely agree that life tends to be unfair more often than we would like to think, but like you said, as long as we only worry about ourselves, things will eventually work themselves out.
