Karmic Action

I was moved to consider the Law of Karma today.
My version of this cosmic statute goes this way.   "If you perform good deeds for others, good deeds will be performed for you, and if you are hostile and aggressive to others, then hostility  to you is the end result."
When Jesus said to turn the other cheek to your enemies, it was practical cosmic advice.  It simply means that if you react to a hostile act with revenge and a similar response, you will continue a cycle of responses that can never bring harmony and peace to you.
But if you break the cycle, by offering a peaceful response to a hateful act, you can escape the endless repetition.
You don't have to worry about "getting back at people" for being wronged.  The Law of Karma takes care of that, and you don't have to lift a finger.  Each action has an equal reaction.
Not that this "turning the other cheek" is easy to do.  It certainly seems that smashing the offender's head into a mass of pulpy protoplasm would be a far more desirable and satisfying course of action at times.   But that only sends your karma back in the wrong direction.
God and the Universe has the whole thing under control.   Mankind doesn't come close to understanding or defining it.  So when somebody screws with you and yours, rest assured that they will get screwed in turn.  And let it go.
