A fictional example of what I'm talking about:
You are driving in a car, and someone cuts you off, forcing you to slam on your brakes or you would have been hit by them. You lose your temper for a moment, and then a few minutes later you pass them pulled over on the side of the road by a police officer.
In this specific example of course the person may just be getting their "just desserts" so to speak, but what about situations where you lose your temper about something that you shouldn't have, and people are still punished for it?
[As an aside: Is it possible to "restrict" one's self as it pertains to the LOA? For the obvious purpose as it relates to the question..]
(The reason I closed this is because the first answer really did answer my question. It is my problem, and it is obviously my fault, so I need to figure out how to fix it myself. I rely too much on others to solve my problems for me, and I'm going to try to stop doing that.)
The question has been closed for the following reason "No longer relevant" by Snow 31 Dec '11, 20:07
Everything comes back to You. There is no blaming of the LOA. When you lose your temper because someone did something, You are allowing someone or something to control You. Control Yourself. It's always about You and your state of being. When you hurt someone you have to live with that, justify it as you will. Know Yourself. Take your time, calm down, cause people are gonna push your buttons. Laugh it off.
In regard to the LOA. You may have a desire to hurt someone and so you allow people to be asses towards you so you can feel justified in hurting them. Know Yourself.

Our power through the LOA is personal power. If even the Creator and the angels
do not interfere with free will, how could we possibly interfere with the free will
of another? We may see something happen and feel it is cause-and-effect on our part,
but often it is not. It is just something that was going to happen anyway, or
happened because of the other person's karma. There is nothing to feel guilty about
or worry about. You are not causing anything to happen to another unless it was
in their karma to have it happen anyway.

I suppose if you were a bad person you could attract bad things to targets that are other people. This would be doing dark witch craft though. I do not recommend it, instead pray for those that hurt you. It will feel as hot coals cast on your enemy and, healing for you both. In other words it takes two to fight. He is counting on returned hate not love.
