Good Karma

Good Karma/Energy 

I’m was thinking about the aspect of good energy in the world and how it can be put into balance and used in a positive and productive way – good energy is promoted by good actions, good deeds, a sense of morality,empathy, honesty and sense of being with an equal sense of open – mindedness to others realities, identities, opinions, abilities, cultures, gender and sexuality.

Bad Karma/Energy 

To talk, extract and divert to bad/negative energy can cause imbalance to ones self and other people around this energy much like a pebble being thrown a calm pound the ripples go outwards on impact the reality of this can be devastating to the people who come into contact with this energy in various different contexts. The person must accept that though actions of this nature comes consequences.

“Modern” Society 

The growing trend seems to be I don’t want to take responsibility for my actions in today’s society it seems odd that we have created man-made boundaries that we either run away from, divert or attack.

What has happened to sitting down and talking, understanding and empathizing? Going back to this ideals would be a start. 

Now as a man is like this or like that,
according as he acts and according as he behaves, so will he be;
a man of good acts will become good, a man of bad acts, bad;
he becomes pure by pure deeds, bad by bad deeds;

And here they say that a person consists of desires,
and as is his desire, so is his will;
and as is his will, so is his deed;
and whatever deed he does, that he will reap.

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 7th Century BC

Author: Paul Isaacs

Paul was branded as a “naughty & difficult child” at school. He was classically autistic and non-verbal due to speech articulation difficulties. He had complex sensory issues and appeared both deaf and blind. He gained functional speech around the age of 7 or 8 years old. He went through the mainstream school system with no additional help or recognition of his autism. Consequently, he did not achieve his academic or his social potential and had very low self-esteem. At age 11, Paul was referred to the children’s mental health service with childhood depression where he was regarded as “developmentally underage” and having speech problems. As an adult, Paul had a string of unsuccessful jobs, and his mental health suffered. He developed both Borderline and Schizotypal Personality Disorders in early 2007. He was referred to mental health services and misdiagnosed with “Asperger traits with a complex personality”, which did not satisfy Paul or his family. A local autism organisation put Paul in touch with an experienced psychiatrist, who diagnosed him with Autism at 24 years old. In 2012 Paul was also diagnosed with Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome by an Irlen Consultant who confirmed that he also had face, object and meaning blindness – conditions which Paul describes eloquently in his speeches and training sessions. He also has dyslexia, dyscalculia and also a dissociative disorder. Having started working as an local autism organisation as a public speaker in 2010, Paul joined their mission to promote autism awareness. His hope is that others will not have to suffer as he did. Now also a core member of our Training Team, Paul continues to enhance true understanding of autism at every opportunity. Paul has released and published 5 books on the subject of autism published by Chipmunka publishing and has contributed to other books too. Having overcome many challenges to achieve the success that he now enjoys, Paul’s message is that Autism is a complex mix of ability and disability. He firmly believes that every Autistic person should have the opportunity to reach their potential and be regarded as a valued member of society. Apart from autism related blogs Paul also write about movies, fashion, art and anything that is of interest. As of August 2015 Paul now works as a freelance speaker, training and consultant in and around the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire area.

  1. Enjoyed this post. I think empathy is one of my favourite words Paul, as is Karma. Great believer in Karma. I’ve discussed empathy with your Dad. I went and looked up the exact meaning of it. It is so important. My aspergic partner doesn’t have it. That is a great loss. He realises this but of course can’t do anything about it. Ah well, can’t have everything I guess.

    • Hi Celia

      Lacking empathy and difficulties expressing inner empathy are to different projections but can “look” the same – people with AS tend to have Alexithymia meaning they have problems with self emotional expression. I hope that helps. 🙂

      Kindest regards

      Paul
