Karma is often used as a way to wish long term punishment for those we believe are in the wrong, ” You watch! Karma is going to come around and bite them in the ass!” or “Karma is a BITCH!!”. But often, we forget that karma is the judgment on the whole not on just the some of your existence. So while you take the time to focus on thinking ill thoughts for others, you are liable to swim in the same murky waters never exploring beyond the edges of the rim. Cause hatred will hold you to these depths ( if you can fester hatred towards one, where would it end? ).
Forgiveness releases you from the binds that hold you in place. Leaving room for more positive pursuits, like tending to your own garden and through your actions —hopefully those you love will tend to theirs as well. Trust
