So many times in our life we find ourselves in a relationship that is…triggering. It could be positive or negative triggers, yet they affect us in away that stirs something within.
Relationships, whether based on strong bonds or seemingly insignificant, are in fact based on our actions of the past and present.
This is what Buddhism teaches~
There is a famous proverb that states :
This proverb is based on a Buddhist principle, which expounds that relationships between people are not coincidental.
They are based on a deep karmic relationship.
Therefore, even if we pass by a stranger on the street, and our sleeves happen to brush against each other, this too, is due to a karmic relationship from previous lifetimes.
