 I have an issue with someone who I used to work for. She used to be nice, but recently I had to contact her for some paperwork and she had a attitude. I think she intentionally influenced something important for me to fail by giving false information. My practices over the next year hinge on having enough money and this was a large waste of time for me since it has failed. Should I contact a agency to cause her great harm for botching tax records and attempt to correct this, or should I simply invest more time in other ways to secure myself financially?

 There is anger towards her right now, so I am obligated to not act unless I have a ethical and irrefutable basis to act or anger passes and I have a reason to act.

I don't think I will act,.. this is clearly a distortion,.. I am clearly under the influence of an afflictive emotion and this is not such a heavy issue that I should exhaust myself sending harm her way. I have much better things to do.

well maybe perhaps you asked her in a way that peeved her off on that day. Try a different approach...and ultimately there's no reason for the anger as the cause stems from incorrect communication...

If we know cause and effect we would know, that person did not come about due to no causes. And who created the causes ?

You should thank her for manifesting negative karma for you to endure while you are in a human form. Imagine you experiencing the same karma in one of the lower realms?

Yup. But it also need a lot of practice and have a great amount of patience. But in the end will be worth the effort.
