This is too shallow. And the definition of karma represented here is very superficial. Karma is much more complicated than that.

I use to watch super soul Sunday several years back decided to listen to the podcast of it , and chose this episode because of Gary. This is hardcore giving me anxiety , the music sounds like a freakin truecrime podcast. The way Gary and Oprah and the guest are speaking is really creeping me out. I don’t remember Gary sounding that way. I just wanted to listen to something wholesomely enlightening . I mean I heard the message but… the music and the way people are talking is really putting a knot in my stomach.

I am so grateful for all of the warriors in the world and after listening to this came to me that we must start with the boys little boys young men. We keep talking about the women And I love that it is so important but not the issue which is the men, Women are infinitely strong we pull it from places we did not know we had but there is a disconnect set allows the status quo to remain and we must address that issue and make change in the hearts of men
