In beautiful Hungarylast year, living a #Travelife, we had many philosophical discussions on the Law of Attraction and the role of karma in life. This was a recurrent theme as we traveled for two weeks around this fascinating country. We drove from Budapest to the castle city of Eger, and onwards to Szentendre. Szentendre is one of the most beautiful towns in Hungary.
WHAT IS KARMA
Everyone knows what karma is. So the idea of it alone should encourage all of us to always try and do good, and to never hurt other people intentionally — whether in actions and speech. Everything you do is literally reflected back at you, sometime, somewhere, somehow.
And this includes gossip, by the way. Gossip is just pure negative energy. I am a big fan of eradicating gossip and pettiness from this earth.
WHAT IS THE LAW OF ATTRACTION
What about the Law of Attraction?
It’s a natural state of mind and a way of life that encourages you to always be in a state of bliss, gratitude and acceptance — regardless of circumstances.
“What about people who have done you wrong? Are you supposed to be in a state of bliss about this too?” Someone asked.
My answer is to do nothing. Let karma do its work and just focus on being the nicest person you can be. Eventually, karma will catch up on that person, and sometimes in the most interesting and ironic ways.
THE POWER OF THOUGHTS
Your thoughts and emotions are like magnets that create your reality. Yes, please make sure you get this sequence correctly. Your reality will not make you happy; it’s your inner happiness and appreciation for everything in life that will create for you a wonderful reality.
TRAVELING IN HUNGARY
We had some of these discussions in Hungary with a very learned man named Erno who very kindly accompanied us during our first days of traveling in Hungary.
I specifically remember discussing Travel and Life over lunch in a garden in Eger. We had just finished visiting the University of Eger and we were enjoying Hungarian goulash for lunch.
“Hungary is a very spiritual country,” Erno said. “We have so much beauty and nature here so it’s natural to think about such topics. Many people find themselves transformed, especially after spending time in our countryside.”
And this is just another reason why Hungary should be at the topic of your travel bucket list. We’re headed back there again this year, too. 🙂
