The Boomerang Effect
Originally from Australia, the boomerang, when thrown into the air efficiently, always returns to the one who has thrown it.
Much of our life follows the Boomerang Effect and Isaac Newton's Third Law which says: "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"
The boomerang effect is based on the Law of Equivalence spoken by Jesus Christ, who said: “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Matt. 7:2).
The Boomerang Effect, Newton's Third Law and the Law of Equivalence refer to the Principle of Action and Reaction which in Hinduism is known as the Law of Karma. All of these laws imply the fact that we get back whatever we give.
Our life is like a big mirror where we see reflected the image of what is placed in front of it. If we place in front of the mirror a sophisticated crystal vase with beautiful roses, the mirror will reflect this image. If we place in front of the mirror an ugly, old and dirty trash can, the mirror will reflect this image.
If we plant goodness, charity, love, solidarity, understanding, etc. life will give us back these good qualities, but if we plant hatred, disrespect, violence, indifference, etc., that is what we will collect in our lives.
Farmers understand this very well. If they plant orange seeds, they will harvest oranges. There is no way farmers can harvest tomatoes if the seeds they planted were orange seeds.
Life follows the Boomerang Effect, which returns to us when we launch it into the air. So stay tuned to your behavior and your actions. Think, look and see what you have planted for life. Do not do as in the case of a small town baker, who bought your butter from a local farmer.
One day, he weighed the butter and the farmer was found that decreasing the amount packages, but still charging the same price as before. Then the baker accused of fraud.
In court, the judge asked the farmer: "You have those weights to balance the two plates?"
"No sir" - replied the farmer. The judge asked: "So how can you weigh the butter you sell?"
The farmer replied: "When the baker started buying my butter, I found it good to buy your bread. I have used their bread as 500 grams of standard weight for butter to sell. If the weight of butter is wrong, then he should blame himself. "
