I have really been struggling as of late with the concept of luck,karma or what have you.
I see bad things happen to good people that really don't deserve it and wonder to myself if there really is any kind of bigger picture or plan or do some people get squished like an ant for no apparent reason.
It seems you can do all the right things in life and be the best person you could be and out of nowhere a satellite falls out of the sky and splatters your ass.
I used to think cruel people got what was coming to them through some sort of cosmic balance or Karma if you will,but now I am not so sure.
I sometimes wonder if there is anything to luck? I am just lucky that I haven't been rear ended by a car at a stoplight in all my years on the road, or is the guy who has only been riding for 2 months unlucky when it happens to him?
I can't help but wonder if it is just a random lottery with no logic or justice whatsoever.
I mean sure you can do things to protect yourself,or you can do things that put you in danger but how can you protect yourself from the randomness of fatal disease or a bunch of logs falling off a truck on you.
How do you protect your self from some asshole falling asleep at the wheel and killing you.
I know nobody ever said life is fair but most humans want to make sense of things and sometimes things just don't seem to make sense.
Like why does a 12 year old boy who has never done anything bad in his life get brain stem cancer and die?
Maybe if I had some kind of religious faith I could be at peace that things like this are all some kind of grand plan,but unfortunately for me I have no such faith.
I am not sure what I am asking here ,sometimes I just write stuff on this forum only so I can read it back to myself and delete it later,and sometimes I post it.
Maybe what I am after is some sort of insight into how others deal with things in life that just don't seem fair or make sense.
Like when someone close to you or someone who does not deserve it is killed how do you tell yourself it was part of the greater good or bigger plan or do you even believe there is any kind of plan at all?
If they say only the good die young is there any point to being good ,does it really matter?
