I love Karma. I used to think it was something that was oozing from the center of my Milky Way bar.
Lately I have been saddled with the Blahgs and lacking inspiration to write anything down. I started to read other blogs to see if I could gather any pertinent information or possibly a lead-in to strike some creative output. Maybe hijack another blog and call it my own. Maybe I could take parts of someones work and tie it into my blog, what(?), with all the millions of readers out there who will notice? I admire the blogger that can whip up words and blend them into a captivating story of nonsense. I especially love the readers replies to the nonsense, begat(ting) more nonsense. I love a readers comments that are nearly as long winded as the article. Personally I think they are looking to grab a little free real estate and advertising space. Maybe they do this because their writing just doesn’t contain that “zing” to grasp a readers attention. Maybe they have too much time on their hands and have nothing better to do but coast and attempt to replicate some weird periodical. Maybe they like to stalk their prey before they latch on to a site that is more notable than their own. Maybe they’re alone and lonely and seek cyber socialization because crawling out from behind their computer is to scary for one to attempt solo.
I think when a blogger uses parts of someone’s work for their own personal gain could be considered a form of flattery to the Blogster that came up with the concept.. If someone’s creative blog helped another blogger to blog something, well that’s just paying it forward and presenting a nice Karmic Keyboard. Although, if this person chooses to continually gain inspiration from other blogs, what will become of the blogger should they no longer have that venue for their own amusement? What if the blogger they gain added insight from decides to stop blogging…will the writer fall short in their monologues and be at a loss for topics? Is stealing someone’s ideas a form of Blogsphemy that invites bad Karma. Why is it called karMA? Why be gender specific, why not call it karPA or karKids….
I like a good karma, it’s such a feeling of quintessential “goodness”, but how does it work? It has been described as memory coming into consciousness, or , one meets self, or a way to heal your past and commit to your present, or being a victim to hundreds of past lives. Yikes, I’ll stick to my candy bar, it’s simpler.
My memory comes into consciousness every morning at 6:30 am when I wake my son from his teen coma and get him started to get his Self out of bed hosting eyes at half mast trying to meet his bowl of Cherios floating in a milky stream of consciousness. If he’s a victim of past lives, I may not live to finish this one. The only way I can get him to commit to my present is if it’s gift wrapped and can be used on a snow covered mountain. My family has had to deal with a lot of my past lives embedded in this present one. I believe a few hundred house keepers have embodied my being in the past based on the hours of upkeep needed to keep up with a teenager. I think I may have been a chauffeur or a Cabbie in my former life. I have driven all over this country and spent endless days and nights transporting my children to their destinations du jour until they were able to drive themselves. I may have been a GPS system as well, because I can locate anything in this house that has been misplaced by family members.
But what brings about the bad Karma? Maybe stealing or cheating or being a lousy cook? Maybe some see this as a form of punishment. ( bad Karma that is, oh, and possibly being a lousy cook is punishment enough on my family). Do we attract and repel certain experiences that bring about this Karma. My dog attracts fleas, is that good karma? And if I chose to use repellent to obliterate the infestation is that considered bad Karma… My son attracts lots of teenage girls, is it bad karma to swat them off like flies so he can study for his SAT’s…
I dunno. So much to think about. I think I’ll just retreat to reading other Blog’s and chew on chocolate until someone’s topic catches my eye and maybe spark some initiative onto my screen. Maybe I can copy right off a page or two…no that would be bad blog -karma…….
spread the humor.
