Not Worth Our Time

People who always take without consideration for other people we could label bad. We could condemn them and try to figure out all kinds of ways to get back at them. Then we would become like them. Is that what we want?

When we retaliate in kind by taking from them then how are we different. If they break laws then yes they should be punished legally and not in a vigilante style because that makes us no different than them.

Takers tend to have a miserable life as they assume that everyone else is the same. No one can be trusted or be allowed to get too close. They are lonely miserable people and will find a time when someone will do the same to them.

Good people can survive hardships better than bad people because of their optimistic attitude and the relationships they create and nurture.  It is not worth our time to take care of all the bad people we will meet in life. They will ensure their own downfall or at best realize what an empty life they have in their old age.

Your thoughts?

Happiness comes from within. Goodness comes from within. Doing the right thing when no one is looking. I agree, bad people are not happy people. I know, I watched them for 25 years. Karma is a very powerful thing. Excellent as always. Have a great evening Peter. :)

Sometimes, it's better to be busy and creative and not think about injustice. One would have to live for many, many years to see the Laws of Karma in action.

Peter Haslam said...

yes Princess Haiku maybe lifetimes :)

Oh this is a great one! If we return to the people who do wrong another wrong, then both of us are wrong! It always seems that what one does comes back to them, for the good or the bad! Do kind and it comes back! Do wrong and it comes back to you, too!
So nice to see you Peter. Say hello to Cleo from all of us.
