A (little) Rant Re: Karma

The Law of Karma says:

In Buddhist teaching, the law of karma, says only this: for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first, and this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant according as its cause was skillful or unskillful.  A skillful event is one that is not accompanied by craving, resistance or delusions; an unskillful event is one that is accompanied by any one of those things. (Events are not skillful in themselves, but are so called only in virtue of the mental events that occur with them.)

Therefore, the law of Karma teaches that responsibility for unskillful actions is born by the person who commits them.

Therefore, it is with a smile on my face that I report a very unsavory person in our community who attempts to ruin others’ lives was finally approached by the police for parking in a handicapped parking spot.  No, she is not handicapped and no, she does not have a handicapped parking permit (again, because she is NOT handicapped, she just believes she is above the law).  It’s about time.

Thank you karma.  Thank you.

    It’s so frustrating to see people do that kind of stuff, but it’s sure great when it comes around to bite them. I don’t know if I’m being nice by laughing about it, oh, what the heck?

    I despise people who think they are better than everyone else so they don’t have to follow the rules/laws. Unfortunately, there are too many of them in this world…

    LOL, yes you’ll get what you deserve. I truly believe you get what you give. I’m dealing with some annoying-ness with a certain person but I have to remember there will be karma and I just have to worry about how I conduct myself. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well!

      Julie, one can only hope that karma rears it head on ugliness while we’re around to watch! Keep your head up and you’re right, conduct yourself with dignity and you’ll be the better person!
