Karma returns in book 2 of Life's a Joke and delves into the more complex questions of life's biggest secrets. God joins Jay once again in this mezmorizing sequel to one of the most talked about books of all time.
About a year ago, I would sit and converse with my buddy Karma on-line late into the night about how bad life really treated us. What I liked about talking with Karma was the fact that he always seemed to have just as bad of luck as I and laugh about it twice as much. We really got into some deep conversations at times. There came a point when I would sign in on-line and if that little flashing light wasn't present confirming that Karma was there, then I would just start complaining without him. Though he wasn't on, through some form of communication his responses would appear before me on the screen. In the end a complete volume of information would emerge from the dialogue as my first book 'Life's A Joke!'. In it I was to uphold an obligation to write a second volume called 'How God Ruined my Life' which is what brings us here. How do I know Karma will come back to me for a second round, you ask? Because that is exactly what Karma does 'it returns to you'.
In the world of the spirit like attracts like. Thusly, if you want to experience yourself as something, the fastest way to find yourself there is to become more like that something. So if you choose to experience Heaven, for example, you should begin acting more heavenly. Think to yourself what it is you are choosing to be and imagine what that would be like once you’re there and then decide that everything you do is for the purpose of becoming that. So when you’re being kind to someone, for instance, you are only doing it because you see kindness as a heavenly attribute and you know that your act of kindness is bringing you closer to your goal of experiencing it for yourself. In turn, you truly care not about making the other person happy, for their own good, but instead have a motive which is selfish. Too many acts go without motivation. Self growth is always the most important thing to consider and in this way it is good to be selfish. Selfish self growth you can call it.
Wow. That actually makes sense. So in doing a kindness, I should always keep in mind that I am doing it as to come closer to my goal of being heavenly. I think this will help a lot of people be a little nicer today. Too many times people feel it just a chore to do a kindness. People often times have a motive behind what they do, and if they don’t, they fail to find reason to do it. This is a great motive! For every kindness you partake in, you move one step closer to your heaven. Thank you very much.
