For some lucky people, this has been their entire life.
Some days, some periods in your life, it seems like no matter what you do nothing ever falls the way the need it to, it all seems to fall apart around your ears and never goes right, or the way you want it.
For some unfortunate slobs out there, this has been their entire life.
The way that karma works, whatever you put out there always comes back to you. So many confuse that, they think that if you do good things good will come; do bad things, bad will come. Unfortunately though, that's not the case, rather, its all about how you feel.
A serial killer who feels good about who they are and what they do will generally fall into that top category, with everything falling the right way.
The person with that good heart, the one that would give you the very shirt off their back and often does, but always has that pang of regret in their heart for all the things they still can't do, all the people they still can't help, and feels bad about it.... they generally get the latter, things just don't fall right for them, do they?
We all know, or at the least have heard of, a real son of a bitch in every aspect of their life that always gets everything they want.
And people love them, no matter how horrible they are. They flock to them. Can you see that person in your mind right now?
We all know, or at least heard of, such a good person that they deserve every good thing in life that a person can have, yet nothing ever goes their way. They always seem to get crushed down by the world. And you wish they could just get one break, because then they would make the world stand on end in ways that can't help but make you smile.
Yet people try to avoid them as much as possible, no matter how special they may be, because they can't do the same things that we can, can't put themselves in a better position.... and no one likes a downer.... Can you picture them in your mind?
There's always a spiral, upward, downward, and one event ignites the chain that spins that life where it will go, doesn't it? When its going good its always going good, and even when its bad something good comes out of it. When its going bad it always goes bad, and even when something good happens, its tempered by the consequences or circumstances that arrive as a result.
Swirling up or swirling down, it creates a rift, a chasm between us. The two can't see the world the same way any more; they can never meet.
When you're always down, the life, the spirit, is sucked right out of you, to the point where you literally can't think of what to do next, or pick yourself up and get going enough to do what needs doing if you could think of it. There is a weight, the weight of the world, pinning you to your knees.
When you're up, you don't want anything to mess with it, so you just keep it rolling and enjoy it as much as you can with others trying to enjoy it as much as they can as well.
Both can drastically skew your perspective. Both can alter your reality to the point where you lose touch, lose your grip on reality, lose sight of how things really are out there.
What spirals, swirls UP in the world around us? Forces of nature do, and we anticipate their coming when we can because they change everything that they touch.
What spirals, swirls DOWN in the world around us? Dirty bath water, pools of your own filth swirl down drains. Shit swirls down toilets. And those things are cast out with all the other refuse we don't want.
Air pressure lifts you up. Air pressure pushes you down. Its all in the aerodynamics. Its all in how you spread your wings. Its all in finding that right angle so that the passing wind makes you rise above the rest, rather than creating friction that makes you crash.
But what do you do if no one's ever taught you how to fly?
How do you turn your shit into a force of nature?
We live in an exact Universe. There's a calculation for everything, otherwise none of the things we've come to know, television, cell phones, cars, airplanes... none would be possible without the magic formula. Manure can be turned into bombs. You can literally use your shit to blow things up.... even feces can change it all forever.... if only someone showed you how....
The best option is to always put yourself in situations where you feel good.
But what does a person do when they never have that option? What do they do to change their stars when that happens? Who do they turn to for help....
Downer today, I know, but its what I'm thinking about....
