Life is unpredictable and the lack of control over it can lead to feelings of dissatisfaction and failure, or in the cases presented below, to wonderment and maybe to the feeling of being protected and blessed (not sure by whom). You can beat the odds sometimes, and wonder what factors lead to that? Is luck quantifiable?
Always try new things and never give up on your life mission.
Purposefully make use of the incredible forces lying in each of us in order to right our own skewed path toward what we feel is our life mission, or our calling.
In this what sometimes appears to be a randomly determined chaos of an existence, it’s easy to lose track of how different hats match your life purpose. Maybe self-awareness and vigilance are the answer to this issue in that we should make all the effort possible to ensure we only have and wear the hats made for our momentarily drawer, so we can see and foresee how they fit together and what risk they pose for our future style and never exclude changing the hat drawer all together if that change leads to personal and social growth.
Nature vs. nurture debate, or determinism vs. free-choice debate – how much can we control and how much are we controlled by our biological predispositions and social structure? What decisions do we really make on our own? The debate can set you free..
All our relations are determined by the power of the parties in them and that can be challenging when that power is based on irrelevant criteria. Even meritocracy should not generate power, just knowledge and progress for all.
Life is never simple, even when it looks like it. Simplifying may be useful for a superficial understanding, but it should not be used for decision-making, especially when those decisions affect other people.
