On Monday, I was supposed to meet my mentee for the first time. We already set a date and time, but I needed to get vaccinated, and I wanted to do it before I fly to Chile. The vaccination however made it uncertain whether I will find the time to meet him.
Fortunately, it only took 30 minutes to get vaccinated, but I already felt my arm hurting and I was hesitant, if I should still go and meet him or not. I decided to write him and see, if he still wants to meet and two hours later he said yes. Again, I was already in the warm apartment of my parents and it was cold outside. Normally, the “perfect” excuse to ask to postpone the meeting. This time however, I decided to go out again and meet him.
We had a wonderful conversation over delicious food and tea and while speaking the sun came out as if to say: Stephan, you see what happens when you overcome your weaker self =). After our talk I had two more short but nice talks in a shop and when I got back, I met an old classmate, I had not seen in years. We had the same destination, so we could catch up and this was another lovely talk.
If I had not gone out, nothing of this would have happened (okay, maybe the sun would have come through, but maybe not in the area where my parents live). This let me think about the concept of Karma again. Sometimes, I have the feeling that when I do something good, and that is either unpleasant for me or takes effort, I will be rewarded somehow. The same is true for the other way around.
What do you think? Does Karma or something like this exist?
Have a wonderful day and take care!
