I believe there are certain principles that are universally true, and they are true no matter what religion you are or no religion at all. The religions cite claim to them in their scriptures, but they are true in ALL faiths and nature.
They say that you reap what you sow, and I believe that is mostly true. It is the essence of the concept of Karma, and it just makes sense. If you are nice to someone, they are often nice to you.. or bitter.. or whatever. However, I didn’t really see until now that it is not an either/or of people but all are affected. It’s not .. one is good and one bad and the good gets good and bad the bad. It’s act by act, specific to each and each can get BOTH blessings AND curses.
I was reflecting, today, on my first ex and how things ended. While it was true I was neglected and ignored and later mistreated in ways, I DID reject her and leave. Now, I find myself rejected and alone and can’t miss the parallel.
I really got into witchcraft from my last relationship, while I was already spiritual and created a Christian witch overlap, and in that learning I heard witches have a principle that what you do to others comes back in you unless paid, which is the same principle. This awakening has me realizing that even if you are wronged, you cannot return it without facing penalty, yourself, and I think that’s what Jesus was trying to help us avoid.
As you forge your path ahead, let the past END, unless you want to see it in your future, as well.
