My Own Sword

Image result for falling on your sword

45 In brief, when calamities befall me like bolts of lightning,

It is the weapon of destructive karma returning upon me Just like the ironsmith slain by his own sword;

From now on I will be heedful of nonvirtuous acts.

May I reflect on the infinite acts of kindness showered upon me by mothers, fathers, friends, relatives and strangers from time without beginning. May I never dwell upon the hurt but turn my gaze to the help I have received in this and all past lives.
