ALL DONE WITH MIRRORS & SMOKE

SURE THING? No It Never Was At All.

You ordinarily often hear people who are in positions of power, and/or in a blessed state of good material / financial grace in their lives, they often say — Oh yes, oh yes, but I worked hard for all I have! Or, I’ve worked hard for my success! Or, I’ve worked hard to be a Winner!

And folks, it may sound right, natural and even true sometimes or even most of the times from a collective and individual perception oriented view point.

Now, you’ve heard also people telling people — Leave the Past in the Past!

Personally, I would add to that — Leave the past in the past after you’ve learned its lessons. Otherwise, the past may be likely to repeat itself over and over again!

And I realized “Something Important” which it is not perceived quite often! And it all came to me while I was thinking of those two points — The “ I worked hard for everything” bit and the “Leave the past be the past”, but of course, first do learn from it so that it does not repeat itself again…

First of all, I thought about my past and although I have no regrets because to myself, I know very well that I did the best I could do, with the “What & Who & How” I knew and had at the time.

But by that same door, I realized that certain “Events / Things / People” from the past, and how they came to be, in fact, I’ve acknowledged , I’ve discovered that many of those events, things and people would have never ever been nor been allowed into my life at all, that it is, “If”, only if by Natural ( deemed-favourable ) Circumstances, I had been “Empowered” differently ( whether via Means, Events, Things and/or People ) in order to have been empowered and able to say No to Them and in no uncertain way! And then, happily choose a completely Different Result and Outcome of whatever it was at the time.

That, that it is real and true of me, of you and of everybody on earth!

No exceptions at all!

Nature, Natural Circumstances ( Inside and Outside our Human Control ), they play a much greater part in all and everything that We whether individually or collectively are allowed to be, to do from cradle to grave, than we are willing to acknowledge, or to become aware of, or to perceive at all.

We like to think, we worked hard for all of this and this is why I am successful at this or at that, etc.

But if you place any popular successful human being in special examination pedestal and you begin to research that person’s full life, the beginnings and etc, etc.

You will always come across that in the path to, in way to where they have got, there were “the happening inside of their lives of the proper, right and empowering Circumstances via the so-called “right” People, via the right Events, the right Things, the proper Means, even when all of those were unlike to happen, they did for those people, in fact, all of them.

Without that help from their Circumstances, all of their work would have amounted to Nothing.

Minus the extraordinary help of Circumstantial People / Events / Things / Means which had magically entered their lives in the key special and appropriate moments of their lives, ah, sorry but all of their Efforts would have been granted them only mediocre and small results and outcomes just like the majority of the population anywhere on earth, folks.

So, the “I worked hard” part does count but it was 100% “Not” the deciding factor, because let’s face it, there’s a vast number of people on earth who worked hard and still works hard, but they will never be like big Stars of the Films, of the Music, of the Theatre, of the Politics, of the Show-Biz, of Writing, of this and that, etc, etc.

In short, we like “to take full credit” for things, event, people and fortunate means that went way beyond our doing and ordinary control.

I see beyond that self-serving bullshit!

I realise, in fact, I do know that there was a lot more than just only “Hard-Working” that went into that fabulous mix, folks!

Things worked out for this one and that one, in great part because all the empowering Circumstances arrived at the proper key moments of their lives and their undertakings.

One smart friend asked me back — Why?

The smart answer is, because either by nature / Au natural, these people were always guided by their own hearts to seek and to follow all the things which they came here to the earth to do at this time.

They knocked at all the proper and right doors for them and at the right times of their lives.

They were with all the right people and in all the right times!

And folks, I am not surprised at all!

You, me or anybody else could’ve done as they did and become as successful as they did, if only, if we also had all the same guidance, the same right doors, the same right people, the same right timing for all and well, we too, folks, in fact just about anybody of us who is in good shape, who is sane and also in good health!

In my way, I offer no special credit where that is not due to them at all!

It is not about putting other people down at all, it is not about that!

It is about avoiding unnecessary bullshit blind belief in what it really is not what it seems to be.

Somebody may even say, well I do not need any of that to be happy!

That’s fine, I will grant that because it is true.

They also say, the lesser you know, the less you want, O.K. And it may be much easier to be happy with a simple mind confined within the “Not-Knowing”.

But “Knowing” is our duty, to evolve is part of our Nature as a Species.

Besides, look around you, all and everything are made of changes. And that includes us, folks, our Species a.k.a. Human Beings!

To finalize…

Whatever you are and have got, it is fine as long as you are happy.

But it becomes easier to be happy when you understand better the dynamics of this elemental world, the variables of the journeys from cradle to grave, and you do not take upon yourself the weight of the world and for reasons that are not yours and nor any reasons at all in the end.

Life-wise, me? Well, I travel lite, folks!

And I try to enjoy the ride!

And because there is no peace on the extremes of anything, I do take everything with a tiny pinch of salt!

Knowledge is good, is information! But experience is Wisdom because by then, the knowledge a.k.a. information has been verified!

I’ve no complaints at all, I’ve no regrets at all, and I am very much Thankful to the Goddess for such a dear blessing in me and in my lifetime!

Cheers,

OUTCOMES?

AH…

MEANT, OR SIMPLY NOT MEANT TO BE.

PEOPLE SIMPLY GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS AND THEN THINK HIGHLY OF THEMSELVES AS IF IT WAS ALL THEIR OWN WORK.

BUT IT NEVER WAS, IT NEVER WILL BE.

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING LARGER THAN THIS SPECIES, SOMETHING LARGER THAN LIFE WHO INFLUENCE WILL DECIDE THE OUTCOME.

NOT ABOUT GOOD OR BAD, BUT ABOUT WHAT IT IS MEANT AND PRE-NATALLY AGREED UPON…

AND WHAT IT IS NOT MEANT, NOR PRE-NATALLY INCLUDED AS A PART OF THE PLAN FOR THIS LIFETIME.

CHEERS,

SKY
