“Why is this so? Stealing will make you RICH!!”
No… stealing will make you poor…. Stealing has the karma of loss that returns to you manifold. Because when you steal from others, they lose. Thus, when the karma comes back to you, you lose. If you steal many things from others, many people have lost. Thus when the karma comes back to you, you will also lose many times…. make sense? That is the Law of Karma. Knowing this Law exists, we must make it a point never to steal things. Always pay for what you want. If not, don’t buy it. If it is too expensive, find a cheaper alternative. Operate honestly. Honesty is the Best Policy.
When I was younger, around 17 years old, I had a shoplifting spree. I started by stealing Conqueror Paper from the Polytechnic’s bookstore. I wanted to print out beautiful reports. I succeeded because I was smooth and had my back turned to the cashier. Later, I wanted to be successful, so I stole Mind Programming Tapes from a Self-Development Store. They cost $50 per single cassette. Later after that, I wanted to enjoy playing 3D Video Games on my self-assembled computer. So I walked into Challenger Computer Store and tried to steal an Nvidia GeForce Graphics Card worth $679 in a big box! I spent 5 minutes trying to peel off the anti-theft security tag. Finally it came off! Tucking the Nvidia box into my plastic bag and trying to walk out of the store — suddenly the electronic alarm gates BEEPED continuously! Out of nowhere the store detective appeared and gripped my arm — he wouldn’t let go. He told me calmly to sit down in the office. I sat there like a dumbo not knowing he was actually calling the Police! The police came and handcuffed me and put me in jail for a day. I saw so much rubbish about what happens to people when they do crime.
There were 7 men in one lock-up cell. You had to wear their prison garments. There was no hand-washing basin, no toilet paper. There was only one toilet bowl there… you had to pee and shit in front of everyone and you wouldn’t even be able to wipe your ass! Everyone had their heads down… buried in their knees. Everyone sat on the cement floor. There no beds, no rattan mats… nothing but bare cement and a toilet bowl. I sat there feeling sad that my life had come to such a state. I looked at all these men… all seemed to be facing the end as well… given up hope; head buried in failure and sadness.
Good thing, they considered me a minor. Let off with a Warning. My parents came to pick me up. They were very quiet. Driving me home, they didn’t say a thing. They must have been very disappointed. I recall at sometime… someone told me, “You have such smooth hands, you should be a Magician!” So I took up magic as a hobby and in a year’s time, I became a Children’s Magician! 😀
So, it is possible to turn your life around. If only you knew what to do with your talents. Really, don’t steal. It’s not worth it. You can easily buy all these luxuries when you have a little children’s magic show business or your own income stream. Think about how you can make money. Use your wits to design a business or job for yourself. Know what you have to study to get you there. Everyone has talents they can convert into income. You just have to know what your in-born talents are, then put time, money, and effort into developing these talents by training, education, study, reading, listening and learning; thinking, writing, drawing etc. All the same terms? 😛 These are all learning options.
Pay for your tools. They will serve you better than stolen goods. It’s the karma of buying your items. Things you obtain… are actually ‘living things’. They contain spirits. An Apple Pencil has a drawing spirit artist that guides your art pen. A lipstick has a beauty spirit that makes you look hot. If you didn’t pay for her lipstick, she will make you look like a clown. 😀
Stealing doesn’t pay off. The karma for stealing came back to me 3 times… I failed in my first 3 businesses I set up. That cost me thousands of dollars each! So, if you want to succeed in life…. You need the Karma to be set right. You should Pray at a Church or Temple or Mosque for Success! Cleanse Yourself of All Sin! Do no more evil in your life! Be a Completely Good Person and Do Absolutely Good Things! The accumulation of all your good work and good effort, combined with smart thinking on how to make income… will make you wealthy. That is better than stealing and believing the mental illusion that you are gaining, when you are actually destroying your future life! Okay buddy? Learn from a Master… (thief). 😛 Haha. Good thing I overcame all that 22 years ago and turned over a new leaf. I never stole a single thing after that. Ever! Not even bit-torrenting. I don’t steal people’s videos or paid information either. Downloading through file sharing, is known as Piracy. That is also a form of stealing. I know you can find everything there… so maybe I’ll just hop on and enjoy digital stealing! 😀
If you ever had trouble with Kleptomania (stealing addiction), know that you can overcome it with counselling treatment. It is a treatable condition. It’s not the end if you get caught… you can easily sort out any charges with the company. You will get a Police Record. But you can carry on with your life. Don’t steal anymore. Just get good and do good. Keep working hard. Work ingeniously! Use your thief ingenuity to build a real good person’s business! Tell you one last thing… sometimes, there are kleptomaniac spirits which can possess a human being and make you steal things. It’s not your fault, you know? This kind of stealing is dark spirit possession. That’s why you need God’s Help or Buddha’s or Allah’s Help. Amen? Amituofo? Praise Allah? 😀 (Not to forget Hindu Gods and Taoism.)
You can transform your life if you really resolve to do it. Really resolve to change your life for the better. That’s how I did it in my darkest times. You can too.
That’s all I have for you now, buddy. Bookmark my blog. It’s a piece of rubbish now… but it will be a shining glory later. Okay? Talk to you soon.
