Karma by any other name sounds complicated but it all comes down to ensuring that you’re doing something good for the sake of doing something good.

There’s been a debate, for years, in my head and in the world trying to decide if karma is actually something that exists and, if so, how long does it take to return the favour.

I’m a true believer in the law of attraction or “the secret” as many of you know it by, even if I don’t always follow it as closely as I should. This is the same principal as karma in that what you put out you’re sure to get back. Some people call this religion, their belief in God or another higher power rewarding them either now or later in life/ existence/ death for a good deed done.

You reap what you sew and I’ve been sewing a lot without obvious return. Some could even say, as I do, that I’ve been dishing out but only taking junk back in. And yet I continue to support financially and through sharing, believing and advising others despite their lack of recognizing that the universe is telling them something.

For example, I’ve recently bought a book, which wasn’t the recently launched and discussed Jason Lawson’s Recession Proof, despite it not being my preferred genre as well as having many books backed up on my shelf to read before it. I bought it only because I love supporting local talent, I know the author through friends and relatives and really believe we all have to celebrate each others accomplishments. I’d be untruthful if I didn’t admit I expected some courtesy in return. Instead it was like I was slapped in the face with a mere thank you which is typically enough for me but there’s more to the story that I won’t include here.

And so I support, believe, give, and juggle the finances to continue supporting those I believe need to succeed and pave a path for others to tread.

And I know, despite what some may say, that karma does exist for us all, I just wish it came with a clock or a calendar.

Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts,
