Revenge? Karma? Both?
Catchy title, huh? Did I get your attention?
I decided to take this on as a topic today because my book Ruby’s Revenge is free on Amazon today. I love my character in this book because she goes after what she wants…no holds barred. Even when things seemed impossible, she didn’t give up. I would like to think there’s a little bit of Ruby in all of us. I know there is in me. With that said, I’m a firm believer in karma. You reap what you sow. But sometimes you have to fertilize someone’s karma garden for them. Coming to mind is the catchy meme phrase which popped up on my Facebook feed today…”Do no harm but take no $hit”. I like that! There are all kinds of ways to help karma grow…without doing “harm”. Right?
Let’s talk about karma for a few. What is karma? From a spiritualist perspective, it is a bank of merits and demerits you collect through every lifetime you live. For every good deed a merit is gained…and for every bad one…well…you get the picture. Consequences. The universe takes its own revenge. The divine law of cause and effect. For every action there will be an equal and opposite reaction. Balance. And as a Libra, I know all about balance. My whole world goes crazy when things are out of balance for me. That’s when I call upon the wisdom of my Celtic pagan ancestors and set the scales back in balance. I just don’t do it naked in the woods under a full moon. I save the full moon nakedness for the hot tub with a companion. I regress…
Now, let’s talk about revenge. Oh, sweet revenge…served fresh and hot on a platter. My character, Ruby, does it well. But she had the financial backing to do so. Which reminds me of one of my favorite binge worthy series…Revenge. The heroine…Emily Thorne…also had the financial backing to wreak havoc on her enemies. And Beth Dutton from Yellowstone…money and power to do whatever she wanted to her enemies. Moral of the story is that revenge can be expensive.
Okay…enough of that…I need to get back to fertilizing the garden.
