@hop-daddy sometimes you take the words right out of me and I don't know if that's an empath thing or we genuinely just think alike?
the post you saw about referring to being careful who you save, we have to remember, karma is just an energy, it exists because people gave it reason to, like an idol, I always say I want to look into this a lot deeper but never get the chance, if anyone has any theories throw em my way please!
usually what creates it is the ego, and the afflictions of daily life we face, sometimes we wish to take matters into our own hands and desire good/bad towards others, for whatever reason that's caused us to feel that way. we assume by investing all the energy of a given situation, we can make it go in to our favour, for when karma comes around to do to others what was done to us, we kinda like to rub the ego and say 'well I did that, and im glad it happened, for what you did to me'. this very sentence, in this moment of time, this is karma itself talking to someone, teaching them something. it means we begin to feel superior and inferior as we keep going through the karmic cycle, for the longer we keep sending that karma out, it will keep coming back. when we understand this on a deeper level and know how it works, and if im guessing we can use karma as an energy to gain what we need, or teach what we need, but it has to be utilised in good faith, intent and with trust.
we cannot know in every given situation whether we ought to use karma, as all these experiences and karmic cycles go, my tf will know what I mean if I just mention a random word like calling, he can piece it together and it will just make sense..
where people in general are concerned, and we don't always know the full story, we can automatically assume either the best or the worst of something, if we feel helpless in a situation and we have had enough, and we're human, how easy is it to say, I wish you go through what I did, either 1) this can be out of vindictiveness, 2)hate, 3) anger, 4)frustration, 5)lack of empathy/sympathy, 6)with bad intent and so forth, and boom that karma goes to do its job. and it might do it many times, until the lesson is learnt. if at the end we realise after hitting that karmic send button, it can change, and we can change how it comes back around, it is the essence that broadens the mind and, experiences, new ways of thinking, creating more peace, love, harmony and so forth, it opens up the heart, and a new perception in life, or a situation, but that doesn't mean we have to keep applying it either to everyone we meet, we just use it for the ones we care about most, but if our guides are not done teaching or god wants to teach a lesson himself, then we find that as much as we try to undo the karmic cycle, it becomes difficult, while certain openings in the past were easily accessible in the past, they are now on a anger scale minimised and have lots of constraints, so where and what karma means to me in a personal situation its like asking for a death wish haha (figuratively)
but stuff like this is totally up my street and I love it.
one girl I spoke to a long time ago on here said she had a lot of karmic debt to pay, you don't have to pay anything, look for the wisdoms, understand what you can of it, what resonates stronger, instead of contemplating on karma as a whole that I did this to so and so and wished this on so and so, and we are all guilty of, and WE ARE! apologies, if we can then forget about empathy and bring it down to sympathising, and we understand the lesson, karma actually becomes a friend, and its ready to bite me back in the butt cause my tf has just understood something lol... have mercy on me baby!
so this girl I was talking about, all she has to do is sympathise and sometimes place your self not in someone's shoes, that's empathy, but in someone's circumstances, with logic and reasoning, and it can undo all of that karmic debt that's waiting to come back.. and empathy can expand to how much you want to empathise with people, it can be done with the mind, just giving a mere fraction of a thought, some people have been through a lot in ife, and it used to upset me that that I couldn't help them with what they needed help with, I may have stayed silent, no being able to offer any words or encouragement, and it stayed in my sub, probably only thinking of it now and again, so what its like to be mentally abused in some of the ways others were, is why I started acting out like an abuser in how far I could go with energetic work, and other people, thats what solitude can do, so I always say never take alone time more than needed, was our own energy field is vitalised, use it as you would if you never had empathy at all, like a normal person. solitude can count as meditative isolation and a seclusion process, dangerous without a guide, so im grateful I always have god on my side
so back to answering your main question, have no fear in challenging karma, or someone's karmic cycle, we're not god and if we are changing it to what ever it is that needs changing, wish it on people, it will happen, but bear in mind could we tolerate it in the same way if it happened to us? if there's lessons to be learnt for others then by all means, send it, if the people don't learnt their lessons, They will always wonder why they're getting a beating out of life, and why some have it easy and get through shit easily, is because well the usual stuff i say, about questioning to understand first, then why, judge if we must, but with intent that when karma comes around it was to understand, then we understand the process of why and then we cancel out the judgement.. easy peasy lemon squeezy
hope that answers in some way? feel free to challenge anything iv'e written
