I’m a big fan of Wayne’s but let’s be cautious here. The terms “their” and “your” are tricky here because in the world of karma there are no individuals, there is merely experience. Some experience creates warm and inviting karma and the other creates the opposite just as Yin and Yang would dictate. And yes, it is your little aspect of the universe that is spinning this karma, but it isn’t just for you to experience, it’s collective. So it’s not a matter of what comes around goes around, it’s more like we’re all in a pool together so please don’t pee. If you want to know more check out my Karma Shmarma posting.
Note: Everyone who posts or shares a quote does so with the very best of intentions. That said, I have created the series of Other Perspectives blog posts in an effort to prevent some of these ideas from entering into people’s consciousness unchallenged. These quotes range from silly to dangerous and—while I intend no offense to their creators—I do use these rebuttals to help define and delineate the larger message I’m attempting to convey in my own work. I do hope you find them helpful in your pursuit of both psychological and spiritual health.
Following a serious childhood brain injury Scott McPherson unwittingly spent his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and the self. This made him as strange to others as they were to him. Seeing the self-harm people created with their own overthinking, Scott dedicated part of his life to helping others live with greater awareness. He is currently a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB, where he finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
