"Fear is a bird that refuses to fly, and each time she neglects to use her wings, she consents to the slow death of her destiny." - Nadia Janice Brown
Sometimes when things go wrong in life, or times get hard, it's difficult not to think of Karma as a practical rule that can be applied to every situation. I always find myself thinking "what did I do to deserve this?" - but not in a "poor me" kind of way, instead I will go through every bad thing I've ever done and wonder if one action caused another. Or if a collection of small actions have been saved up to culminate in a series of unfortunate events over a prolonged period of time. Or maybe it's not Karma but something else.
And after a while your brain is on overload with the inability to process both emotion and practical thought. When bad things start to pile up and it's impossible to justify them, or sort through them, because these things just happen sometimes. Then all that's left is white noise. And you can't tell up from down.
Tell me, how do you turn that white noise into thoughts? And then those thoughts into positive ideas and beliefs? How do you bring yourself back around to thinking straight?
