karma… what goes around, comes around…
there are so many cliches and concepts about the idea that you get what you give. actually, that idea reflects a fundamental law of physics – the law of attraction… that like attracts like.
makes me think. i’ve been doing quite a bit of research into quantum physics and the more i read the less I seem to know know, but the more things make sense (haha – welcome to quantum physics). it’s interesting to marry science with philosophy and spirituality. physics is much cooler than Mr. Dwyer ever led me to believe before I dropped that class.
according to science, we are all energy. according to the law of attraction, like attracts like. so, whatever we put out – in regards to vibrations, etc, we attract… funny how that fits into my problem with negativity. it really does feed off itself and grow.
basically, what you consume yourself with becomes you (a la you are what you eat, but not quite ). so, if you are consumed with negativity and focus on it, then you bring more of that energy into yourself.
it happens all the time…
‘he doesn’t put the toilet seat down!’ becomes bigger and bigger everytime you go into the bathroom and fall into the toilet (for future reference – it’s helpful to look before you leap)
so, you focus on this ONE negative thing that annoys the Hell outta ya instead of…
he cooks for me
he cleans for me
he does the laundry
he makes me laugh
he picks me up from work…
or whatever ‘he’ does.
that one thing overrides all the positive things that he does.
theory would have it that if you focus on the positive things – the ones you are grateful for, more will come and the toilet seat will become a non-issue.
