That Which You Criticize Is That Which You Become #3.

In these cases, the mind and body become contaminated and such individuals are 
understood as such by all whom come into contact with them. Those with limited insight are 
subjected to intensified ongoing experiences of the things they deemed offensive. Because 
they ignore the causes and effects of karma, they accumulate the effects of their negative 
examinations. They become all that they judge. They become arrogant and ignorant. They 
fail to contemplate their own faults because they naively deny the presence of them. This is 
the worst kind of mindlessness. The presence of such individuals defiles those around them. 
Their venom is ongoing and overflowing, making them abhorrent to all but their own kind.
Karma is a universal law. It is experienced positively and negatively. Karma is based on 
cause and effect in which good happenings and bad circumstances are experienced. The 
effects of karma transcend life times then blend into all future incarnations. Its consequences 
are summed up by Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall 
obtain mercy….Judge not, that ye not be judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall 
be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” This is a 
truth that is not determined by higher education or social status, it is understood and 
embraced by those whom operate on a higher spiritual plane; for, it is realized that a 
person’s quality lies in the heart, and that is all there is.

    If this include politicians and lawyers, I'm in big trouble. I actually thought Satan took the form of a snake in the Garden of Eden because lawyers and politicians weren't invented yet. Look up Teddy Roosevelt's speech on critics. I have it hanging in my office. "It's not the critic who counts." This was a great trilogy. Vince

    Very good thoughts you have given in these three pieces, Kmberly. You seem like someone very into philosophy. I could see this topic you presented being taught in one of our church sunday school classes! I believe in Karma. I think MY big flaw is laziness at doing stuff I don't want to do, especially housework (so I try not to criticize anybody's house. hahaha) LUv, andrea

    Life is not easy sometimes and it is difficult to opporate on that higher plane but that would produce the best results for all people. Nicely done write. Good topic on which to write. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara

Lovely write . Keep them coming, for the world needs to come to grips with the error of their wrong sowing. Sincerely, Love, Moses
