If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

The Looming Karma (Haiku)

Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”
This week’s theme is:  

there is no escape
according to what you did
thus shall you repay

like a hungry wolf
it tracks you down, haunting you
'til justice is served

so run if you must 
sadly though you won't go far
sins of yore loom near

Join the

Next week’s theme: Ego

And speaking of Karma, a psychic friend of mine once told me that the easiest way to earn good karma in this lifetime is through your parents. Treat them well and life will treat you better, she said. 

The Dalai Lama himself has this to say about how to earn good karma points...

Instructions for Life
by The Dalai Lama

  1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve Great Risk.
  2. When you Lose, don’t lose the Lesson.  
  3. Follow the three R’s:
    Respect for self,
    Respect for others and
    Responsibility for all your actions.
  4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful Stroke of Luck.
  5. Learn the Rules so you know how to break them properly.
  6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
  7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
  8. Spend some time Alone every day.
  9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your Values.
  10. Remember that Silence is sometimes the best answer.
  11. Live a good, Honorable Life. Then when you get older and
    think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a Second Time.
  12. A Loving Atmosphere in your Home is the foundation for your life.
  13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the Current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

shakira, the dalai lama gave us practical guides... we encounter these situations everyday... but sometimes we do tend to forget how to deal with them.

i'm glad that you like the post. :) thanks

Jenn@ You know... that blog? May 13, 2010 at 9:40 PM  


Love that you included the Dalai Lama's thoughts in this. He was definitely who I was thinking of when I chose the theme for this week.

Excellent Bing. You can run from Karma, but you can't hide. It will always find you.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

thanks, jenn. :)

sandee we are given options in life. we have freedom of choice. but then we have to remember that there is always a corresponding consequence for every step that we choose to take. i'm so glad you like my haikus. :) thank you

I have a soft spot for Haiku, and yours came as a welcome relief this morning, after some of the gloomy Poetry Pantry dishes I've been sampling! Also loved your dove of peace, and pink type face - such a change from other's pitch black! LOL

Bing (PinkLady) November 15, 2010 at 8:40 PM  

jinksy, i'm glad you like my blog. haiku is a new passion of mine. i only came across it through sensational haiku wednesday and i got hooked since then. :) thanks for dropping by.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
