Reflection for today…The Karma Police -Buddha & Radiohead

9 Jan

“Don’t waste your time on revenge.

Those who hurt you

will eventually face their own karma.”

-Buddha

When someone has hurt you, betrayed you or done you wrong, revenge can be seductive.

I have never been in favour of revenge. I believe it would just lead to an endless cycle of further suffering, bitterness and future painful karma.

I prefer “living well as the best revenge” philosophy.

I have been reflecting on revenge because of recent events.

What I wonder is why aren’t those individuals that hurt us, betray us and do us wrong afraid of the karma police?

Karma Police

Radiohead

[Verse 2]
Karma police, I’ve given all I can
It’s not enough, I’ve given all I can
But we’re still on the payroll

[Chorus]
This is what you’ll get
This is what you’ll get
This is what you’ll get
When you mess with us

[Outro]
For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
Phew, for a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
Phew, for a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
.”

Karma Police Department

“Thom Yorke {singer in Radiohead}: Karma is important. The idea that something like karma exists makes me happy. It makes me smile. Karma Police is dedicated to everyone who works for a big firm. It’s a song against bosses.”

Karma Police We Saw That

“Ed O’Brien: When someone in the band behaved like an a–hole, one of the others always said: ‘The Karma Police is gonna get you.’ I suppose it’s all rubbish that your destiny depends on your deeds in a previous life, but you have to trust on something.”

Karma Police This Is What You Get

“It was a band catch phrase for a while on tour – whenever someone was behaving in a particular s—ty way, we’d say, ‘The karma police will catch up with him sooner or later’,” guitarist Jonny Greenwood told Melody Maker. “You have to rely on something like that, even though we’re probably just kidding ourselves. But it’s not a revenge thing, just about being happy with your own behaviour.”
