Many people go about their daily lives just trying to get by. There’s much going on each and every day. I have to do lists for my to-do lists. Sometimes, as a result, we walk around in a fog. For others, there may not be such a fog. They might be quite purposeful.
Where in a foggy state of being or in a state of a purposeful mindset, resulting actions have actions. You put out into the universe wishes, love, harmful thoughts, fears, bad intentions and the like. We put those out there. They percolate and like a javelin they come right back to you.
Some would say that is karma. I often do as well. You want put out into the universe does create a synergy for which you are responble. You put it out there, you should own it.
