You may have noticed there is another way to bust up the Kharma…by living a total chaotic mess. Sometimes you just can’t catch the suffering until its in mid stream and you are about to punch out the man in the parking lot for taking your spot. Okay, so that too can happen. And its very painful. That’s the kinda stuff that the old zen teacher is pointing to when you read “careful not to take too much suffering from someone, they may need that suffering to wake up”. Its a strange and awkward thing us humans have going on…for some reason it has to get unbearably painful to wake up. And how much pain a human can endure seems almost endless. Its can get real, real bad up in there before the alarm goes off and change becomes an option. I wish it was otherwise, I truly wish we all understood that fear and pain can push you towards an evolution, but vision, and joy, what I like to call Joy body, can inspire. Imagine if us humans just needed inspiration to make change…But we’re not there yet. So, the other way you get to burn out your Kharmic pain is to simply live it. The big Kharmic wipe out. So if you, or your buddy, seems to be caught in some endless pattern of pain, be gentle. Its still the primary operating system we have going on. Eventually its going to get so bad, it will stop. I know its hard to watch, but common…we’ve all been there.
