MISTAKES in life happen for us to learn important lessons. These events allow us to become better and stronger. Bad choices make us more resilient and wiser. Negative situations simply show us what must not be.
Again, I will emphasize on choices. Most of the hardships we go through were results of the choices we make in life. If we make good choices, it yields favorable or noble results. When we make bad choices, we suffer from the consequences.
It was our choice to stay in a company or serve a boss who treated us badly. We rant on how he orders people around and is not being fair/humane with his workers but there was always a choice to leave. One may say that the reason why they stayed on is that they needed a job. Fine. But it was always a choice to seek another option. You exercise a lot of restraint and control over emotion, it allows you to be more tolerant and persevering. Your boss’ karma? He will also reap what he has sown.
If someone scams you with money, there was always a choice whether you will believe him in the first place. But then, because of “too good to be true promises, such as big returns or money in place of an investment,” we chose to believe what is “offered.” We never scrutinized nor exercised discernment. Blindly, we go through with the transaction, give cash or service in replace for something uncertain. Then the truth unravels that it was a scam or a hoax and our money was taken. It was not the scammer’s fault but being gullible is no excuse at all. Lessons learned.
Now, how do the “two cups in this lifetime” fit in? Remember that in the previous article, I spoke about one cup gathering good energies and other bad. We make good and bad choices and these energies fill it up. Eventually, these cups will fill to the brim and overflow.
In spite of the bad things that happen to us, continue to do good. Doing good fills up the cup of goodness. Do more good and it fills the cup inch by inch until it fills to the brim and overflows.
In this light, negative people talk trash, rumor monger and find fault in everyone. They create stories about others and blow up stories even if they are not true. With doing so, their cups are filled with negative energies. The more they fool and take advantage of people, the more they fill their cups of negative energies.
Positive people simply ignore, give people chances and are quick to apologize. Though people may chastise them, their perseverance and quietness fill their cups of goodness and then blessings overflow. Good people never plot against others; instead, they forgive and love.
Following this line of thought, reparations then must be made to offset the negative energies we encounter. We must then fill ourselves with positive energies to fill the cup of blessings to cause an overflow.
You reap what you deserve and it is not God punishing you of your wrongdoings. They are simply results of your choices.
So hurry and do more good but mean it, be sincere in doing deeds. What really counts is the genuineness of the action and not what it appears to be. Good deeds are good deeds. You can never mask intentions. Fill more your cups of positivity to offset the negative.
Also, be discerning and wise. There is always the right choice to make so at the end of the day, you blame no one.
What matters, in the end, is the reaping.
