You may be asking: “What is my karma?” What you are hear to address is hidden in your parent’s complaint. My mom was sure something was right around the corner preparing to frustrate her or disappoint her. My mother would repeatedly say: “It’s always something. If its not one thing it is something else.”
My mother was an amazing woman with a fierce love for her children and her husband, but my mother was a worrier. And I am my mother’s son. I am predisposed to worry.
You may be asking: “What is my karma?” Parents teach us what we are here to learn. But, for the most part the real lessons they don’t know they are teaching. My mother’s favorite expression, “Its always something. If it is not one thing it is something else.” Her catch phase is a complaint, meant to convey her worry about the future, but she was also asking me a question, an important one.
In her favorite phase is her question to me. She was saying, “Colby there will always be the possibility of something that will disturb you. What will you do? My job is to answer her question: “Mom, yes if it is not one thing it is something else…So, I better be beyond circumstance.’
Much of my life I have learned to not accept circumstances as the truth of a situation, to see beyond them to what is possible, to not worry about what I could control , but to actually look towards the unknown with excitement.
If you are asking: What is my karma? Ask, what are your parents favorite expressions? Ask what are they inviting you to learn in their complaining?
