There is a clearer explanation of Karma above (from someone who seems to know about it. I know very little about it) And it is not about the Family type thing. Anyway, I know I have come across sharply at times. I react (in a Karmic way) :) because of where I came from, much of which I recognize, and also because of where I endeavor to go. It is about gaining self esteem to a large degree. As my self esteem grows, I will become less sharp...I think. Anyway your response to my post was a gracious one. My life is going thru a big renaissance right now, if you will. My thinking is changing. I see it as a positive thing. Looking more towards healing. I also know that men in the fam. were ripped apart too, either because of abuse they felt powerless to stop, being separated from spouses, children at the whim of the top. And I believe that many if not most orig. fam members came from abusive backgrounds. Men are less likely to talk about or deal with theirs. Glad you have done so. Anyway, tks for your response.
