Stafford Hospital and the Higher Justice of Karma

February 7, 2013,
Claire Montanaro

Much has been said about the extent of the abuse of patients and how management and staff at all levels were guilty of neglect and cruelty, directly or indirectly, at a level and to an extent that is unbelievable in these times. Though individuals responsible were not named, it is likely they will be identified publicly eventually and possibly prosecuted, which to many onlookers and victims' relatives will seem only fair. Nobody with any compassion can fail to be moved by the stories of the unnecessary and degrading deaths of hundreds of patients, but to desire revenge on those responsible in a spirit of anger is unhelpful; when emotion drives response it can lead to confusion and delay, however understandable it may be initially. So far, the reaction of campaigners to the report has been measured and effective, and to continue in this vein will be of great assistance to ensure justice and change. Justice comes in many forms, of which the most significant is Karma though many people do not understand this still. Whatever retribution is brought to bear by public and police in the next few months or years, for all those involved in whatever way, their soul has changed as a result of the balancing effect of the karmic implications of what they did, and it has changed their soul journey. A lifetime is nothing compared to the long, infinite path to spiritual evolution. The Karma of which I speak is not just the need to obviate, somehow and some day, the acts of heartlessness and worse which many indicted in the Stafford scandal have created, but also encompasses the blessings, concern and kindness of the whistleblowers, campaigners, relatives and some of the medical staff who did their best to help the patients in great need despite a culture of contempt and discouragement of compassion. For them, who fought and struggled, and do so still, their souls are light and beautiful from their efforts and that karmic light will be with them forever. Karma is not bad, it is a fact: what we do brings about outcomes, and it is our choice, through our deeds and attitude, as to how our future will be. If those who chose not see or alleviate the suffering of those in need in Stafford Hospital had known this, would they have behave differently? Probably not, and it is sad that so very many people have chosen not to care.
