Predators will get what they deserve when ‘law of karma’ comes around
I want to direct what I have to say about the problem of sexual harassment in our society primarily to your male readers.
This is specifically directed to the minority of males out there who have ever sexually harassed a woman, as well as those who have ever considered sexually harassing a woman.
I won’t preach to you because it never works, and because you have no conscience.
Let me put it to you directly and clearly: There are more people who inhabit our planet who believe in reincarnation than those who do not.
Many of them are Buddhists. Buddhists believe in something called “the law of karma.” A popular definition of it is that it says that “what goes around, comes around.”
Another popular definition of it says that it means that “what you put out into the world, both good and bad, eventually comes back to you.”
The ancient philosopher, Cicero, was known for defining justice as each person receiving and getting what is due to her or him.
I am here to tell you predators and perpetrators that, be it in this lifetime or in a future lifetime, you will get exactly what you so justly deserve, have earned, and have due to you.
The victims and survivors will never have to do or say a thing. You will pay for how you have hurt them.
So, think long and hard about it before you act on your evil intentions.
And one more thing: It is because of you that the majority of us men are often viewed with suspicion by women, when our motives and intentions toward them are only good.
Women are not to be blamed for feeling this way — you are.
