“Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
It seems that the concept of Karma is mentioned in all religions and cultures and it is ancient wisdom.
We are responsible to ourselves, to others, to the community and ultimately the planet. Everything we do as an individual causes a ripple through time and space. Good or bad. What does the this have to do with child abuse?
A 9 year old child is raped. Think it doesn’t affect you? It does. The cost of this childs broken spirit can be a life lost. It can be a future of addictions, criminal behavior and self abuse that cost society dearly in human terms and in dollars spent through our civic systems. It could mean a child that grows up to abuse or neglect thier own children.
Don’t ignore it. It haunts us all.
Let us sow an environment of peaceful co-existance, a safe haven for our children and for everyone else and reap the harvest in the very next generation.
