OK. Here is the thing. I have expressed frequently that I think I am doing well due to Karma. However, I also admit that I don't really know what Karma is. I do believe that whatever it is it only works when it is shared. I am not religious. In any denomination.( I don't know what that means either.) Anyway, I know there are multiple "quotes" on the topic like do unto others before they do unto you. Wait. That's not right. But you get the idea. I can fill a book of the times I've helped people. Many cases where Doctors and many other therapists, nurses, and families thought it was a lost cause. Sometimes the solution was embarassingly simple. For ex. I knew a wonderful woman in her late 90's. She lived in an assisted living facility I used to see patients at. She always asked about me, my family and granddaughters. Wishing us well. Her husband was dieing but she cared about me and mine. As if she didn't have enough problems. Some time later after her husband passed away her advanced arthritis made transfers and ambulation nearly impossible due to her deteriorated knees. She was in and out of the hospital and nursing homes. Seen by many doctors prescribing pills and injections but no surgery due to her age. Many therapists put her through excruciating exercises. She became bedridden with full time aides to assist her. When I found out, I just had to visit her. After she asked about me and mine, (now that is Karma), I worked on her mobility. I tried to get her out of bed but the knee pain incapacitated her. She described the exercises she continued to attempt in hope of improving. She told me of her prognosis and lack of potential for recovery. I listened. I checked her out a little more thoroughly. Seems her joint surfaces were so worn she could no longer weight bare. What to do? She had been a "lady" and was taught how to stand, how to walk, how to cross her legs. Those joints with 95 years of wear had nothing left. I told her I had an idea. I got her up. I told her to forget being a "lady". I told her to forget about pointing her feet forward. I said point your feet more to the side. (my idea was to find a joint surface she hadn't been weight baring on for decades). She got up, turned her feet outwards to where she was comfortable. And then she walked painlessly. If you could have seen her face. That was all I did. She lived independently after that for a year or so until she passed away. So, if that is not Karma, what is? She gave, she got back, and I got some in return.
So if Karma is real, it must be shared. Tell us of your stories. Karma only works when it is shared. Fox loves you.
