Karma can be witnessed by looking back on one’s own life and experiences, or by observing the lives of others and how karma affected them. If you are close with someone you can see their karma unfold if you’re paying attention. Sometimes we don’t see it until much later in life.
A less obvious kind of karma, which I have started to notice over this past year, relates to saying two simple words: thank you. Why is saying thank you so very difficult for some people? I have never understood it, until recently.
One of the most common reasons people don’t say thank you, is because they were never taught to do so as children. Usually we are taught these things early on. But some people are brought up in dysfunctional homes where there is the lack love, attention and connection between parent and child.
Courtesy is a silver lining around the dark clouds of civilization; it is the best part of refinement and in many ways, an art of heroic beauty in the vast gallery of man’s cruelty and baseness ~ Bryant H. McGill
When children are nurtured and shown love and appreciation, they grow into mature adults who desire to also show compassion and appreciation to others. They have learned to acknowledge when someone has done something nice for them, by simply saying those two words.
We’ve all opened the door for strangers, or made way for someone in a supermarket isle. Seldom do you hear a simple thank you in these situations. Often the person you’re holding the door for will just walk right past you without saying a word!
I have found that these types of people are deeply scared and hurt individuals. Karma comes to these people in different ways. Since they have experienced hurt, they may not make much effort with small, random acts of kindness, like just saying thank you once in a while.
Certain things then happen in their lives with the aim of teaching these people to be more appreciative of the simple things in life. It usually comes in the form of loss. The loss of a loved one, or the loss of something valuable, like their good health. Everyone’s karma is weighed differently.
Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts ~ Henri Frederic Amiel
Saying thank you and being courteous to others is a powerful way to gain good karma. But it must be felt in the heart and it must come from a place of truth and love.
Someone I know once said something very wise, “A person that doesn’t say thank you for things received, no matter how little or grand, is creating their own instant karma. People look at that person as ungrateful and unappreciative. That is their karma – how others view them.”
