No one likes philosophy
A face is considered beautiful when it is symmetric in features. Anything in patterns is very attractive to the human brain. We like to think in cause and effect..zeros and ones. You do good, you get good. And this logic seems to have worked for us. This tricking ourselves all through life, that this one sorrow today definitely means there is one joy stored in the future. Everything will be balanced out at the end. The universe will make it right. Or god or whoever it is..who is supposed to be holding the strings.
But that’s not really true, is it? A little girl in the deserts of Africa suffering from AIDS and a little princess with a pony in her lush Connecticut home. Their entire lives are the zeros and ones. So the troubles the poor girl goes through are balanced out by the good life the princess gets? And really, what karma is at play here? What kind of pattern is this.. and to which sensible mind does this logic appeal?
Truth is, there is no balancing out. We get what we get and that’s it.
Life is a test.
It’s only a test.
