Karma, Fate, Cause and Effect VERSUS Testing, Trials, Tribulations, and Set-Ups

When a person reads the Bible, the concepts of the Sanskrit “Karma” and science’s “Cause and Effect” are revealed to not be the whole truth, but as with many beliefs and experiments, only partial knowledge. We must keep in mind that our view is greatly limited for the world is about so much more than we truly know until we leave this plane.
KARMA DEFINED
/ˈkärmə/
noun
noun: karma
  1. (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
    • informal
      destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.
    • Origin
      from Sanskrit karman ‘action, effect, fate.’

TESTING, TRIALS, AND TRIBULATIONS EXPLAINED

John 9: As He passed along, He noticed a man blind from his birth.

John 9:2 His disciples asked Him, Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?

John 9:3 Jesus answered, It was not that this man or his parents sinner, but he was born blind in order that the workings of God should be manifested (displayed and illustrated) in him.

This is but one of many instances in the Bible that explains why people’s circumstances are not to be judged by humanity’s limited scope, cause and effect theory, and fate speculator.

The Book of Job, the stories of Moses, Abraham, David, Joseph, Esther and many others share wisdom about the process of testing with trials and tribulations to refine a person’s integrity and faith.

No one is perfect. We all have flaws, weaknesses, and qualities people just don’t like, approve of, or have the courage and compassion to tolerate. And yes, judging others is the fault we all have unless we choose to see past what we do not and cannot know.

The best correcting tool is unconditional love, but the next best thing is valuing … respecting people simply for being a life … because respect as a principle is the only way prejudice and the many harmful consequences it manifests will be reduced and when mixed with love, eradicated.

The BENEFITS of KNOWING “LOVE LANGUAGE” for Relationships, Including With One’s Children

“Child psychologists affirm that every child has certain basic emotional needs that must be met if he is to be emotionally stable. Among these emotional needs, none is more basic than the need for love and affection, the need to sense that he or she belongs and is wanted … Without that love, he or she will be emotionally and socially challenged.”
 
“Inside every child is an “emotional tank” waiting to be filled with love . When a child really feels loved, he will develop normally, but when the love tank is empty, the child will misbehave. Much of the misbehavior of children is motivated by the cravings of an empty “love tank” Dr. Ross Campbell.”
 
“As I listened, I thought of the hundreds of parents who had paraded the misdeeds of their children through my office, I had never visualized an empty love tank inside those children, but I certainly seen the results of it. Their misbehavior was a misguided search for the love they did not feel. They were seeking love in all the wrong places and in all the wrong ways.”
Excerpts from pages 23 and 24 of Gary Chapman’s book.
Like Ashley’s mother and stepfather, my parents provided for my physical needs, but they did not understand my deep emotional struggle because they did not speak my primary love language, which was also complicated by my personality type that is estimated to only be 3-5% of the American population, which includes my less common learning and communication style. Because of my experience and the consequences, I am sharing Gary’s marriage counseling wisdom to help people keep love alive in a marriage and in all relationships, including relationships with one’s children.

A VISUAL Bio TOOL

Inspired by author and community architect Radha Agrawal’s personal hand-drafted example, I opted for using her template, but by using Adobe Photoshop, since even I can’t read my writing once I get going.

A great tool, as are many others in her book, Belong, Find Your People, Create Community, and Live A More Connected Life published by Workman Publishing New York 2018.

My version shared below serves as a visual image of what I am about and as a result, what I bring to my role as Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle founder, social entrepreneur, author, artist, and speaker.

The BENEFITS of FASTING With Our Modern Eating Habits

Why fast? Here’s an expert with the reasons why our current culture will benefit from fasting …
“It was this observation that led him to intermittent fasting, as a way to quickly lower insulin in the body. Prolonged periods of low insulin force the body to turn to stored sugar as a fuel source, and when that’s been depleted, to turn to fat.”
“Insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas, helps the body use sugar for energy, but insulin resistance and prediabetes can occur when the body doesn’t use normal amounts of insulin properly. Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney failure.”

The UNIVERSAL and CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS and FREEDOMS Grade Six Students Learn in School

Of course, as you know, what children are taught in classroom is often overridden by what they see and experience in their lives, so what are we teaching children by our beliefs, words, and actions?

https://www.chrc-ccdp.gc.ca/eng/content/human-rights-in-canada

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

Human Rights in Our Provinces

Provincial and territorial human rights laws are very similar to the Canadian Human Rights Act and apply many of the same principles. They protect people from discrimination in areas of provincial and territorial jurisdiction, such as restaurants, stores, schools, housing and most workplaces.

Laptop Restored!

Hello Visitor!
Last Tuesday, my Facebook post was, “Either Microsoft is having problems creating updates for all their users or a hacker is using their updates to down my computer … either way, my laptop is down again, so phone calls or texts until further notice, please and thank you! And thank God I also have my other computer offline so the work continues without major interference.”
Fortunately this time the down time was only six days as opposed to last months which was ten days!
Technology is a great tool, but some days I wish our lives were not so dominated by it, which is one of the reasons I have cut back blog and social media posts so I can work on the other elements for my company … book writing, speech writing, press kit preparation, business plan revisions, and of course, researching and studying for personal and professional growth.
Now, if I could just get the neighbor with the workshop behind me to get online more often so he would get off the power tools and also stop the pounding.
Thanks for dropping by!
Best wishes,

This Social Entrepreneur’s PROGRESS REPORT

Social Entrepreneur … A person who creates a business to address a social need.
Pulled out of the Bruce Grey County’s “Hawk’s Nest Angel Investors Contest” when Dad died in 2015 because once he was gone, winning meant I would have had to stay in the area, but for personal and professional reasons I did not want to make a permanent home in the contest’s catchment area.
Grateful, however, for the opportunities to be in the contest workshop, present to the review panel from two community foundations, and receive feedback from them and the consultant, all of which has strengthened by business plan and strategies along with the ongoing research and study I have since done.
Now preparing for the next stage of the social entrepreneurship to transform respect from a discretionary value to a global principle … even includes a contest so stay tuned!
Of course, thanks for your interest and stopping by.
Best wishes,

Kaitlin Ann Trepanier
