Am I Going Through a Karmic Pattern?


Over the past few days I've "done more harm than good". A lot. It's been something as simple as keeping a door open for someone who doesn't need to walk through it, to jumping the gun at work and trying to do something that ultimately gets in the way of other people's progress. Am I going through a karmic pattern right now? How can I more consciously correct this behavior and how can I tune in to what God is trying to teach me?

Dear Arthur,

I am sorry that you had to go through these challenges right now. Everything that happens to us is a part of our karma.

It will be helpful for you to review each situation carefully, and get clarity into what motivated you to act the way you did. Was your motivation pure? did it come from a desire to help others, or did it come from a desire to control others?

Learn from your experience, don’t obsess about it and move on.
