- We seem to have certain reactions that happen by default. Even a newborn infant can become angry or sad. They can lash out. They will hit back. Whether it is the reality that tricks us, or if we are the ones who trick ourselves - blame is our issue and punishment our crime. When you take the untruth of blame out of the picture, then punishment becomes nothing more than revenge. Nothing more than deliberate harm for no reason that is true or real. This is the trap of karma. The cycle of sad-angry-guilty. Always the story is the same. Someone has been hurt. Someone is sad. Someone is angry. Someone is guilty, and the cycle chases its own tail forever. It is up to us to challenge our perceptions and evolve ourselves beyond the default settings of human consciousness. Only you interpret reality for yourself. Only you assign meaning to that interpretation. Only you choose a course of action for yourself.
