I was just wondering if it's a bad thing to wish happiness on someone else even though it's for your own benefit? Especially if it's for someone you may not like. For example, there is someone I'd like out of my and my husband's lives. This person has caused me great pain but instead of wishing her to crash into a tree I've hoped she moves on and finds her own happiness elsewhere. But it's for my own selfish benefit. Is this good karma or is this going to come back and bite me hard?

Just wanted to add, this is just a thought in my head, no real wishes or meditations or anything like that.

Thank you ladies.

One, you can't help thoughts in your head. We all have bad thoughts about people from time to time...it's part of being human. Generally as long as we don't act on those thoughts, we are really not doing any harm. You can't help your feelings.

Two, you're consciously trying to divert your thoughts to wish her well and wish her happiness as oppose to bad things and revenge. Yes, there is a strand of self-interest in there, but you're still wishing her positive things as well. Good intentions count for a lot.

You're not putting any bad karma out there. Don't worry honey.

Send her some love. It's very hard but do it. Send her love and wish her to go her own way to find happiness. Our thoughts have creative power and you are wishing her WELL which in my view reaps good Karma. You do not care for her and are wishing her well.... beautiful

I agree, you are still putting positive energy behind the thoughts. And I would imagine that her moving along would be in her best interest, as well.

I am peace, full of unconditional love. I am confident and in tune with the Divine, receptive to guidance.
