Karma And Intuition

Posted by on Jun 27, 2013

Did you know that I’ve uploaded 75 videos? Did you know that I have had just over 2,000 views? That equates to around 3 viewers per video; that’s a horrible ratio, and I don’t have to tell you that.

The question might be why do I keep doing videos if no one is watching. I do them because I should. I have this intuition that by creating videos some day a few of them just might become popular; not Gangnam Style popular but popular enough so that people will watch one, think it’s not so bad, and share it with someone else. Sure, they’re not overly polished but it’s real and honest and me.

I also feel this karma surrounding me that says “hey, you should talk about this, whether or not you blog about it”. Remember my last video on being an expert? Remember my last point in that post about being willing to share? Sharing isn’t always about the written word, even on blogs. Audio, video, images… whatever it takes, if there’s something there you wish to share, it’s all good.

Why am I talking about karma and intuition today? Because I think most people go about their lives waiting for things to happen to them, good or bad, without paying attention to that little voice inside their heads that says “watch out” or “hey, this sounds really good”. So many people make bad decisions when they knew better, including me. However, I also make a lot of good, safe decisions, some where others might say I played it too safe, but I’d rather be too safe than too risky; I’d like to stick around this big ol’ Earth for a little while longer. ๐Ÿ™‚

This isn’t a blogging tale; this is a life tale. Some people eat too much or eat the wrong things when we all know better because we’ve read and listened to experts tell us about it. Some people still smoke when there’s no doubt it’s going to give 95% of the population either lung cancer or emphysema. Too many people play the lottery every single day when everyone knows the odds of winning the “big one” are worse than the entire population of the planet.

Some of those examples aren’t too bad; others are horrid. We know, but we don’t listen to our intuition, thus we don’t put out the right karma, that sense which tells us whether we’re going to be peaceful or not. Some folks have it going on; they’re doing exactly what they want to do, when they want to do it. But what about the rest of us? What will it take for us to pay attention to ourselves?

Frankly, I don’t know either; that’s why I made this video. I hope it gets at least 20 views, but I know better; my intuition is telling me so. Still, here it is:

I am a great believer of the Karmic effect on all human activities. I am also a strong believer of following one’s intuition as long as the moral grounding of the individual is on a strong platform. I cannot be anything but, because there is no other logical explanation for many of the phenomenon that we see around us.

I inevitably watch the videos that you publish and am glad to know that I am in the elite group of your admirers.

Thanks Ramana; that makes you one of 3 people that have watched it. lol I know that I need to trust it way more often than I do.

As a natural born agnostic, I somehow can believe in the karmic effect. I mean, it might be the only rational way which could drive the supernatural things in life and can give our little lives a sense…

Peter, I don’t see karma as a religious thing, thus believing in it is just fine. Heck, if people don’t believe in it & aren’t paying attention then they’re setting themselves up for consistently having bad things happen to them. Gotta listen to one’s own warnings, that’s for sure.

Samual Minor:

Keep on making videos. I agree with you, one day, who knows?, your video will be a hit. Most often, intuition is right, I think we’d better follow it.

True Samuel; I’m trying to listen more.

Mitch, I have to say I agree with you on this one. I’m a smoker myself, I venture through life making very idiotic decisions. This includes eating nothing but meat and potatoes,Leaving work early just because I can. I find myself doing a lot of self-destructive things. No, I don’t harm myself. I just don’t think before I act. Florida weather sure is the worst! But the Air conditioning never feels so good! As for your gambling, You only live once,Mitch. Sometimes you just gotta go flow! Sometimes, it bites you in the butt. But what you got out of it was an adventure and a story! Money is there to live and adventure with! – Scott Craighead

Scott, the funny thing about me is that I always know I’m going to get a story out of it, no matter what happens, and thus sometimes I go through with things I know I shouldn’t for that reason. Luckily, I always know when to stop as well, and my behaviors are so safe that I’ll never get into any real trouble… on my own that is. ๐Ÿ™‚

June 30th, 2013 | 8:17 PM

Like you Mitch I prefer to play it safe. Maybe if I didn’t I could be a millionaire by now, but then I could also be broke.

So, you say some people play the lottery every day? Heck, if you know any send them down my way ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sire, they play state lottery everyday, and in a weird way it’s a game with them. Most of them don’t have computers either; strange how that works out. lol

July 3rd, 2013 | 1:13 AM

We’re not that bad here as we only have them 4 days out of the seven. I don’t think lotteries can be as addictive as the pokies though. No flashing lights to hypnotise people ๐Ÿ˜€

Keep videos coming, Mitch. I am one of the people that is subscriber and watching your videos. It is a lot better to do it and have a little results than not doing it and not have any results. I always trust my intuition and most of the time, I am correct. Well, karma I don’t quite believe in it, but certainly there is something when things cross and overlap. However, I think you have had a great time there.

Thanks Carl. I did have a nice time, even though my intuition kept telling me to take my money and go home. In this instance I didn’t feel I could really lose anything I wasn’t prepared to lose thank goodness. But at other times, I listen and keep myself safe and free. Glad you watched the video; I agree with you there.

July 3rd, 2013 | 1:30 AM

I think it’s more how you yourself feel about doing better things than karma. I found it to be fulfilling to make good choices.

July 3rd, 2013 | 5:06 AM

Why not both Markku? Is one necessarily more important than the other?

July 4th, 2013 | 12:05 AM

I love your attitude Mitch: doing what you think is right, over what works in a monetary/popular sense. I have to admit to never watching one of your videos – I have a good excuse though: I only use my computer for work – never entertainment – I don’t actually have any speakers attached ๐Ÿ˜ฎ – I know, kind of lame. I’m surprised the ratio of people watching your video’s is so low though; I always assumed a video lended a professional “feel” to a website/blog and people preferred a watch than read. That is intriguing, I’d be interested to know if other blogs have a similar ratio to yours; perhaps people come here expecting to read, rather than watch, and that accounts for the low views. Whereas if people go to youtube its the opposite.

July 5th, 2013 | 10:48 AM

Richard, you never know what will catch on with the public. In general though views of most videos are drastically low. One would think that the number of subscribers would mean that you’d get at least that many people watching your videos but it turns out not to be true because at least half the people are probably connected in a hope that you’ll connect back with them & watch their videos. Unbelievable that you don’t have speakers attached if it’s a home computer. Then again, what you’re saying is that you see blog commenting as work and not entertainment since you’ve been here and on another of my blog’s a few times; now that’s an interesting commentary of its own…

If your name has more than 3 words or the email address begins with "info" or "admin", the comment automatically goes to the spam filter; same if there are any links in the comment or if you don't have a gravatar. If your comment goes to spam for any of these reasons, or any other reason listed in this post, it may never show up on the blog (I do forgive the link issue if you've commented on the blog previously and I'll forgive the gravatar thing for first time visitors). If it goes there for any other reason (and I know some do), I'll pull it out as I don't intentionally moderate any comments on this blog.

One last thing; if your link is an affiliate link or goes back to a strange website or webpage I don't like, if I keep your comment I'll remove your link. That's why I have CommentLuv for blogs; if you have a legitimate business just leave that link & no sub-links. Trust me, it's best to read the comment policy if you don't get it, or never see your comments showing up here.
