Drawing inspiration from our Wiccan friends,
“If it harms none, do what you will”
“Harm” is defined as “physical or mental damage” and to this we can add “psychic damage” as well. To inflict harm on another is simply not a thing that a Witch would do. Aside from the obvious karmic repercussions – quoted from www.witchvox.com
I really like the Wiccan Faiths. Their outlook on life and how to be responsible people of Faith towards each other and the planet are quality’s I really like.
Do ye no harm. – Physical
Most people would agree that doing no harm to other people is a basic of any walk of life. It is a main stay of all of the Traditions, yet it is one that is not kept to. I’m not talking about Murder, or Physical violence , that is to obvious, and if you don’t know that it’s wrong to inflict physical harm on someone else then you really ought to go back to school and ask to be educated again. In most situations the karmic kick back is a term in Jail
Do ye no harm. – Mental
The words we use the way we treat our fellow man. Verbal bullying in the work place or in the home is not an acceptable way for a person of Spirit to use their energy. I would hope that most of us have a handle on this one in our personnel life. What about your work life?
Do you have a position of power over other people? Do you treat your staff with kindness or are you an office bully? Do you use modern forms of Bullying? Rather then sit down with a member of staff and try and sort issues out, is your first reaction to reach for your pad of Performance Management Forms. Or do you chose to send endless emails to brow beat your staff. Do you use your team talks to encourage and lead or to belittle and crush under foot? Think about it. Karmic kick back….well your sale figures may be high, you may be looked upon with favour from your boss….sales figures fall and you’ll find yourself in the unemployed line.
Do ye no harm – Psychic attack.
A subject I’ll go in to greater detail on another post. Psychic attack, in essence is when you use your energy to attack another person. You don’t have to be a “Psychic” to do this and most people are unaware of doing it. When was the last time you wished harm on another? Even in the quickest of moments? Be mindful of your thoughts. By projecting your thoughts of hate, your thoughts of wishing some one bad fortune, even of calling someone a name in your head, will send ripples out in your energy filed and will affect the other person.
Karmic kick back…if things in your own life are not going to plan or you seem to be suffering more then most and the cause if not clear (actions of someone else) then chances are it’s your own thoughts that are causing the balance of your life to tip in the wrong direction.
We have a responsibility not to cause any harm to our fellow humans, it is written in to the Laws of every country. Personal responsibility is only part of it. Collective responsibility is also a player in this one. By not standing up against that which you know is wrong you are still causing harm to other people. The two way’s, we as people of Faith, People of Spirit, are ever going to change the System and bring in the Power of Love and light, is to stand up to it. Make your voice heard. If you know deep down that something is wrong then challenge it, but keep to the universal principles. You cannot judge another person on their lifestyle or life choices. You can stand up to the corporate company, to the corrupt official and their political masters, to the little jobs worth, to the over bearing boss. You cannot take to task someone because of their faith, skin colour, sexuality or gender. If you’re not an activist type then lead by example. By their actions you will know them.
If it harms none, do what ye will.
