Do you remember important advice passed down from your mother and grandmother? You know, those things they told us when we were younger and, at the time, we kind of brushed them off?
Maybe we didn’t brush them off, but we didn’t realize the truth of their wisdom until much later in life. Well, I’ve seen this little bit of wisdom play out over and over again.
It’s always true: What goes around, comes around. What goes up, must come down. Everything in the dark, must come to light, and you will reap what you sow.
You don’t get much more real than that. No matter how old we get or what experiences we have in life, this piece of wisdom is true.
If you put out good in the world, good will come back around to you. That’s just life. And if you put out bad, you will receive bad. Every single time. No person is immune to this.
What you send up must come down. This is true for tangible and intangible things. A hot air balloon must come down, a plane must come down, a helicopter must come down.
I also see this as, if I send up prayers for someone, they are coming back down. If I send up good thoughts, positive thoughts and requests for God, they are coming back down. I believe this.
Sometimes people do things in “the dark” to hide what they are doing from other people. But it doesn’t matter how well they think they are hidden, what they are doing always comes to light.
If someone is hiding and trying to hurt you, or if they are sabotaging your work, or talking bad about you, it’s going to come to light.
Not only is it going to come to light, but they will be hurt much more than you. Not only will their plans come to light, but what they are planning for you will be done to them many times over.
Whatever seeds you sow, you will reap. If you sow seeds of goodness, positivity and love, you will reap goodness, positivity and love.
If you sow seeds of negativity, gossip, jealousy, resentment and chaos, you will reap the same. It isn’t a matter of “if”, it is a matter of “when”.
So, sow seeds of goodness, positivity, love, faith, hope and happiness. You will reap the benefits!
Sending you blessings of love and gratitude from Sterrett, Alabama!
