I am wondering if you can help me understand what is happening to me? First of all, I consider myself to be a fairly good person. I try to help others and treat people the way I wish to be treated. I try to correct injustice when I see it and I am not tolerant of anyone, including family or friends that shows the ignorance of prejudice. But for the last ten or so years, I have had nothing but bad luck. I have had several injuries that have required surgery, several car accidents, not my fault, and been laid off work three times, all for economic reasons. It seems like no matter what I do, I am confronted with bad Karma. And, I have search within myself to try to look for any wrong doing that I may have done previously. I also persevere and maintain a positive attitude, but things just keep happening. I just can’t understand it. I realize that no matter what, I still have had great gifts in life, my children my family and good friends, and I do realize that if I look to my left and my right, I can always find someone who has it worse than I do. But, it’s the ongoing and never ending string of negative things that keep happening. I could go on and list them, but I don’t want to belabor the point. It just feels like sometimes I have been cursed. Do you have any advice for me?

What some might call karma, I call- "A process to make us strong". Our time here on the earth is short. I know sometimes, it feels like a long time but 70, 80 or 90 years here on the earth is nothing compared to eternity! Our time here on the earth is special-. extremely special! The earth experience in the whole scheme of things is really quite unique.

We are here to learn how to live in an immortal society and anything that will help us to become that type of person is a blessing from God! Immortality is no joke- it is hard to become the type of person that can live in an immortal society. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger and nothing can kill us!

Learn to trust God! Being on the earth is a lot like having a beloved parent who throws us into a lake (in a manner of speaking), in order to teach us how to swim. God will allow us to think we are going to drown but God "never" does allow us to drown.

Death is the best kept secret of all time. One second we are in the hospital bed dying and the next we are on our way to our new home (actually our real home).

Be a giving, loving person to your family, friends and associates and show God you are rising above the mediocrity of the status quo, by thanking God for your trouble, pain and turmoil. Instead of a curse, this is your ticket to Paradise if you can learn to see it in the right way. For those who can, the cycle of life and death ends and they move on to the next phase of their evolution.

Thanks for your question and best of luck on your journey-
