Echoes Are Exponential - Grasshopper
What you do comes back to you, in spades.
The key is to start noticing what you are putting out and you’ll not only have insight into the cause of your echoes, but also a blueprint for getting more of the treatment that you want.
There are many rules to live by but probably none more powerful than “give what you want to receive” or in the words of Jesus – “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
We deceive ourselves when we think our actions don’t have consequences. Part of the deception comes from the consequence not coming directly on the heels of the action. It comes as a delayed echo.
The best example I can think of is the case of O.J. Simpson. O.J.’s unchecked abuse of his wife eventually lead to her death, although he was legally acquitted of her murder. He may have thought he skated past Karma but its echo was as long as the long arm of the law. He eventually was jailed for robbery and kidnapping. The guilty verdict came 13 years to the day that he was acquitted of murder.
For many of us the altruistic lesson of being a better neighbor will fall on clogged ears. We need to be schooled in echoes to start believing that our actions have consequences.
The best indicator of the way forward is what you put forward. If you are locked into putting out what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got. The blueprint for getting more or less of what you want or don’t want is to put out more or less of what you do or don’t want.
If you’re asking yourself “Why does this always happen to me?” you are a candidate to start noticing what you are putting out.
One of the hardest lessons to learn is that we are the cause of our effect. When you do, you have a choice in the type of echo that comes back to you.
All the best,
