Since childhood our parents and teachers taught us that do good to others and treat everyone around you nicely. But how many times do we really follow their advice? Well, there is no escape from Karma and it goes by just one universal rule that what goes around you that comes around you. You get served according to your past actions. You get received what you give. And sooner or later, you get rewarded for your good deeds.
The word karma literally means “activity'' and even the great scientist, Newton proposed that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Karma has a lot of forms and we can divide them into a few simple categories — good, bad, individual and collective. Depending on one’s good or bad actions, one will reap the fruits of those actions. The fruits may be sweet or sour, depending on the deeds that have been done by them. Fruits can also be reaped in a collective manner if a group of people together perform a certain activity or activities.
People often ask to each other do you believe in karma, did they ever benefit you?. Well, below is a short story that how karma gets back to you in the most unexpected ways!
Billy Ray Harris, an old homeless man who used to live on the street corner in Kansas City, holding out a cup and asking passers-by for spare change to earn the bread and butter for him. But then, one day, his life changed when a passer by, Sarah Darling passed Harris at his usual spot and dropped some change into his cup. But in a hurry she accidentally dropped in her engagement ring, too. If Harris considered selling the ring, he would easily sell it for $4,000.
But instead of selling the ring he started searching her and after the days of searching her everywhere he eventually, handed the ring over to its owner. When the news spread across, complete strangers fixed his bike, provided him meals and he also received $100,000 in donations online from all over the world.
The most important lesson to learn is that we should become more mindful of our present actions and always lend a helping hand to someone who is in need.
