A while ago this lovely card landed in my mailbox. Delighted by its playful design and uplifting message, I’ve kept that little treasure tucked away in my drawer, yet from time to time I’ve pulled it out, reflecting on the ancient wisdom of nature: how indeed we’ll find the seeds of our thoughts and wishes we’ve scattered into the wind, blossoming one day in the near or distant future. “You reap what you sow.” This timeless truth and spiritual law has been keeping a meticulous watch over humanity since the dawn of man. The wise know about it, and the fool has no knowledge of it. Poor soul. He can’t help it. In Eastern spiritual traditions, namely Hinduism and Buddhism, it has been known as the law of karma, the law of cause and effect. Nobody can escape its far-reaching tentacles; nobody and nothing has the power to stand up to it, nor change and halt the grinding wheels of the divine mandate. Reward or penalty, whatever karma deems fit, this inexorable law bestows on us humans. Sometimes on the surface, life doesn’t appear to be fair. Looking at the many injustices around us, we find it quite difficult to grasp why some folks are dripping in wealth while others are left empty-handed. But according to sages and mystics, there is a hidden, deep underlying current of divine dispensation bestowing whatever it deems fit to balance the cause and effect for every action each human has created by his thoughts, words, and deeds. As the late Indian Spiritual Master Sant Kirpal Singh so eloquently quoted, “The divine pen writes the destiny of every man in accordance with our karma and does not make any difference for one or the other.” On that note, always remember the flower seeds and scatter your own seeds of love, compassion, and harmony into the wind. And as sure as night turns into day, you’ll find them one morning blossoming under a bright shining sun.
