I just read a saying that perhaps not all that long ago I might have laughed at and agreed with, but now just saddens me:
“KARMA: No need for revenge. Just sit back and wait. Those who hurt you will eventually screw up themselves and if you’re lucky God and/or Goddess will let you watch.”
I believe that those who hurt me or others are already suffering. May their suffering soon end, and may I be able to forgive them rather than hope they be punished, for until their suffering ends, it is unlikely that they will stop hurting themselves and others.
May I be wise and loving enough to do my part to help end the cycle of suffering.
