Vampireism

Daily Draw: Lojong for the Layperson ~ Slogan 38

"Their loss our joy" karma and vampireism

Karma will get you for that. I've never understood the mechanics of that thought or what karma is, but we get the idea of wishing  a bolt of lightening upon a jerk. Or the vampires, when you have a joy to celebrate you get the "yeah, but what about that son in jail or sister that can't afford surgery or that garage about to fall down...humm, what about that?

We all know a joysucker and there are probably times when we've inadvertently been one. Slogan 38 would like us to work on our compassion, and recognize our own joys can generate more joys.
