The lucky ones get to have the chance to live life that turn out to be enlightening.
All of us broaden the understanding of I, us, and surroundings as time go by.
But as time go by, not everyone stays lucky for one reason or another.
It is impossible for everyone to stay lucky.
If so, we wouldn’t need the word, lucky. The word, Karma meaningless.
So we have all these different approaches to life; not right or wrong, it just is.
Gets complicated quickly.
Complications expected and welcomed.
Life more interesting and exciting.
Path to enlightened is gradual, quite bumpy, and often painful.
Giving ourselves meaning, deciding what to do with life, being aware of how to live life are the foundations of a good life. A good life, an enlightened life are life that earns more and more understanding of life as time go by; that understanding boosts the confidence in life; that confidence enables taking responsibility; taking responsibility makes solving problems, taking heartaches and headaches possible.
The good life is what we want for ourselves and our next generation.
The good life is possible while knowing it may not happen to everybody all the time.
Living itself implies that. It is a journey to everyone of us.
This journey never gets finished.
In a lucky life, we get to observe the next generation, their journey. Hoping we could help to make the expected bumpy ride a little less rough.
Just a little.
Hopefully, all of us find enough peace to be able to observe the journey in all of us, including our broad surroundings.
Wishing all a wonderful journey, an enlightening journey.
May the force be with you.
