Chronox this happens a lot, you wanted to give so much you gave to much as such, and forgot you have to give to yourself to, make yourself smile to,
try and find a balance.
and my life has been an endless road of disappointments and bad luck.
Serve your own basic needs and wants first, make yourself happy, then you find yourself in a better psotition to help others..
Now I keep to myself because nothing seems worthwhile. I'm not even expecting nice treatment back from people.
But to the people you made happy and helped it did make a differance, the secret is to do it as you say expecting nothing back, just doing it because
it makes them happy and positive, Their Joy is your reward as such.
even though my life was a terrible waste but now I have lost all hope and faith in such things
Your life is as important as everyone elses, and it has not been a waste think of all the people you helped that is great.
and am just existing and waiting to die
Are we not all eh... and filling the bits between birth and that event with as much meaning for others and ourselves as possible.
There are good everyday people out here who don't receive anything from good karma.
Ah this is where many in the West use the term and dont really know how it works...Karma 101 here:
It very very rarely manifests much the actions in this lifetime in this lifetime.... this is why it can seem "Bad things happens to good people"....
it is Karma from previous lives... so if you want to know what type of life you will have in the next incarnations, dont look at your current
material, physical or such like situation,
But look at what you think do and say Now...
You can not run from the good actions and kindess you showed, however you could also stop of inhibit manifestations of some good things happening in
your life if you act in a very negative mind set and way for a long time....
Now I just stay at home and keep to myself as much as possible.
Hey get out there, you have much to give, to experience and do....
Go and have some fun and I am sure soon something will happen to restore your faith in things.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with us, I found it interesting.
