Where’s the Justice?

21 Jul

Have you ever made a bad choice and then watched it “catch up” to you? Well, I have. And, it ALWAYS catches up to me. I call the system, “karma,” and you’ve probably heard the term, too, especially when referred to as “bad” karma (by the way, karma can be good, too).

Well, I’ve had a bit of a revelation of late, and it involves the concept of karma. More specifically, I’ve realized that, for lack of a better way of saying it: Karma is a b—-. So, I don’t have to be.karma

Used to be, I was all about justice, fairness, and things being right. If you made a bad choice, I was typically the first one in line to tell you so. And, to make sure your “wrong” was made “right.” But, lately, I’ve found that to be exhausting.

Instead, I’ve decided that karma will take care of it (or the justice system, I suppose). I’ve decided to “free” myself of right-ing everyone’s wrongs and let life take its course.

Problem is–it’s hard to be patient and wait for good or bad karma to pay a visit. My instinct will ALWAYS be to fight until a wrong is made right. But, I have to fight that instinct and just KNOW that karma will take care of it. In some circles, it’s called “letting-go.”

Of course, there will always be times when I need to fight for justice, but do I really have to fight all the battles I come across? The simple answer is: No.

Here’s how I see it: Karma always comes knocking at my door when I’ve made a bad choice (or good choice). So, it’s likely to do the same to others. In the meantime, I’ll just sit back, decide which justice is worth fighting for, and answer the door when karma comes knocking.
