Litmus Test

Filed under: Atmosphere — bitchontheblog @ 20:06

Some years ago (not that many) a fine specimen of a woman told me she ‘knew’ people. Who would break my legs.

Having watched all episodes of “The Godfather” I didn’t so much as believe her but did weigh the risks. People will do crazy shit over nothing. And I don’t even own a horse.

My point being? My point being that I leave things alone. I don’t sue.

I don’t shy conflict. But there needs to be a purpose to following up wrong. And, most times, there is no purpose. None whatsoever. Other than to prolong the senseless. I’d rather lose a lot of money than quibble over one Pound Sterling.

Having said that: That woman I wish all the misfortune that fate may have in store for her. The lot. I hate meanness. It’s an unforgivable sin in my book. And that woman was so mean as to drive me to the brink. Not of sanity. Just to the brink.

So, you lot out there, those believing in Karma: Will come around what goes around? I doubt it. So very much.

Other than that I wish I were Sicilian. She’d have another thing coming. Nothing deadly. Just another thing. Being given a taste of her own medicine.



  1. Not to worry Ursula. I am one of the guys who can either break legs or order some minion to do it for me. Ask my daughter in law who calls me Don. I am firmly on your side.

    • I hope you are not referring to breaking your own legs, Ramana. Hips are enough.

      Thanks for being on my side. Even that woman’s own solicitor was on my side. Lawyers normally do hold their cool. They are inscrutable as to their thoughts and, most certainly, don’t show any feeling. Yet he was openly horrified at what had been inflicted on me. He urged me to this, that and the other. At the time I was in no fit state to do so. I let the whole saga go – at great loss to me. Not just financial but my belief in the good in the world. As I said in my post, she has left me with a legacy. One which I will not act upon even if I could: Namely that she is the one and only person in my life I not only detest but do wish misfortune upon.

      If only I were a witch I’d heat my cauldron, wouldn’t fling any frogs in since I hate cruelty, but spit in it.

      You know what’s so ridiculous in the whole saga? There was so little in it for her. So much to lose for me. She can call herself lucky that I am neither spiteful nor revengeful. Not that the urge isn’t there. But it’s not in my nature. Still, if I could see her as humiliated as she humiliated me I would. Or maybe I’d spare her as she didn’t have it in her heart to spare me. Who knows. Main thing to remember, and as I keep reminding myself: You can’t turn the clock back. Some things can’t be redeemed. So don’t act upon them.

  2. i hope that there is karma! i try to leave the injustices i suffer (or think i suffer) for the universe to bring retribution and i would not like it if the universe let me down!
    if karma actually is a thing i am sure it would be more just than anything i could mete out

    • Sorry to disappoint, Kylie. There is no Karma. The concept of ‘Karma’ is for those who don’t/won’t/can’t take their destiny in their own hands. Let me rephrase: Karma is for those who will not accept that life is neither fair nor gives a shit.

  3. “One Tibetan monk… who had spent more than 18 years in a Chinese prison labour camp… told me that on a few occasions he really faced some danger. So I asked him, ‘What danger? What kind of danger?’, thinking he would tell me of Chinese torture and prison. He replied, ‘Many times I was in danger of losing compassion for the Chinese.'”
    – The Dalai Lama

    Contrary to popular superstition, there are no ‘evil’ people in this world, only those who are absolutely certain that their vision and version of reality is singularly correct, and who are totally unwilling to open up to possibility, to meet others in vulnerable intimacy and joyful, courageous doubt.

    ‘Evil’ is simply tunnel vision, a painful constriction and rejection of the flowing wholeness of life, a forgetting of our true nature as vastness and capacity and the total absence of a separate and solid ‘person’. It is a fearful holding-on to stories and opinions rather than a expansive letting-go into the liberated ocean of consciousness.

    There are no ‘evil people’ in this world, only those who secretly live in fear of life and who act out of that fear.

    • Sounds like The Dalai Lama wrote that last part too, without the quotation marks. But you’re smart so you probably wrote it.

      • While I am indeed flattered that you think I am smart BHB, no, I did not write the rest. I simply borrowed it from an anonymous source but forgot to mention it at the bottom. On matters spiritual, there have been much smarter people than I who write better stuff.

    • I can’t venture any opinion on evil, Ramana. I am sure that every child born is unblemished. And then?

      “Fear of life”? I don’t think so. What drives us is fear of death.

      • No, Ursula, think about it. There is no point in fearing death. What we fear is the possibility of it being painful or the uncertainty of what follows. That uncertainty is life and we can claim otherwise, but living is our fear. Because we do not know how to live in the present. We are constantly worrying about the uncertain future.

        BHB, this is me being smart.
