This came to mind today, startling enough I want to record it. When I first started writing about the soldier a lot of people were alarmed. They just didn’t know what to make of it and I don’t blame them because I didn’t know what to make of it either. But at some point someone emailed me (with no malice) to suggest the soldier had a lot of karma to work off due his career in Special Forces.
I had formed no opinion of this at the time. I just didn’t have enough information but being as I have Libra, I wrote back to oppose (to balance) the assertion. â€˜What makes you think he’s done something wrong?” I asked.
We were talking about “sins of the father” back then and the assumption was that the soldier had done all this sinning due his career and would now have to atone for it. And I didn’t know if this was right or it was wrong but I thought the assumption was wrong so I challenged it and it was a good dialogue as I recall. The man is still talking to me, so you know. Ha ha ha.
But anyway today I thought of this and my thoughts and feelings about it have matured. The same thing has probably happened with the person on the other side but get this: The thing in question is a long career in service as a Special Forces soldier.
One person looks at that and says that person has incurred a karmic debt.
The soldier thinks he is actually PAYING is his debt (from past lives) by living this career.
Is that not amazing? I think it’s amazing and I don’t even think it matters who is right. What matters is that you understand people have their own way of seeing things.
How hard do you try to see the other person’s point of view?
