I remember when I began to realize the reality of our constantly created karma. It was at night in a small KY town. We (being some high school friends and I) were heading back toward the roads from the college gardens; going home after sneaking out for a midnight tennis match on the dark college courts.
Diane was talking as we jogged along, telling us all about her knees. Yes, it’s the strange things that tend to stick out in our minds.
She said, “I once used to make fun of Sandra’s knees because they were so ugly. One day I fell and hurt my knees so much that I could hardly walk for a week. They were banged up and I have big scars now. I think if you make fun of someone, even in your head, something happens to you to make you feel empathy toward them. Life gets you back!”
We were all listening intently to Diane about ‘walking a mile in another person’s shoes’ etc. because she was our Queen Bee. The gorgeous, fearless leader who got ALL the best looking guys, the girl who won every popularity contest hands down, our cheerleader role model whose body and hair we all secretly envied.
I’m sure long before this I knew this spiritual truth of the ‘Law of Knees’, but hearing her talk about this topic in such a matter of fact way while referring to social rules and such, stands out as one of my primary high school memories.
So she told us about her knees and how her intentions to hurt Sandra’s feelings about HER ugly knees had attracted this tragic karma.
***We all jogged along under the light of the starry sky silently pondering the magnitude of her experience.***
If looking at someone in a ‘bad light’ brought that same ‘bad light’ back to me, then I really ought to watch my thoughts! In other words, thinking someone is ugly also thinks ME ugly! Ouch!
Our high school egos munched away at the scary truth of karma.
It was scary because we spent a tremendous amount of time comparing ourselves to others. Suddenly it was announced how a stray negative thought toward a person could bite us in the butt!
I began to think of all the validations in my life regarding ‘Law of Knees’; realizing the simple truth of this altered my future choices and ultimately the course of my life.
On a much grander and more complicated adult scale, we weave our tangled webs and reap what we sew.
Outcomes may take weeks, months or even years to shine through.
I decided on the following self discipline: Be careful when cheating on a spouse, bragging to a poor person about my great wealth, dating a married person, or when telling someone that “THIS could NEVER happen to ME”.
Make sure that what I am choosing to do now is something I can live with if suddenly ‘Law of Knees’ reared up to show its balancing karmic head in my life!
May the light of your soul guide you and bless the work that you do
