Shit happens

   We live in a world where when we think that our life is getting better, something happens and it’s usually some consequence of our actions. Whatever we’re doing good, bad, right or wrong will eventually come in our path again and you know what? It’s somehow our fault. You do good, you’ll eventually get good and if you do bad, you’ll get bad someday because life has circles, seasons.

   There is this saying that no good thing gets unpunished. Who and why do you think that someone “invented” this? Because you might think you do something good in a direction, but actually you might do something very bad in another direction.

   So actually, sh*t might not happen… we’re the ones doing the sh*t that will eventually come back to us. It’s our fault and also our responsibility to deal with that sh*t because it’s ours. We’re the ones screwing things up with what we’re doing because we’re getting distracted so easy especially when we think we don’t know what the f*ck we want.

   A few months ago I lost my path… yesterday that thing f*cked my life, so be careful with what you’re doing… the bad sh*t you do today might come back when you’re the most vulnerable.

   If you plant a bad seed, you’ll have a bad plant.

  1. Whether we are good or bad, in the end we all suffer the same ending! Even so, I would like to think that our journey should add something to those we come across. It is a dance, so we may as well enjoy it and give it our best shot. What it isn’t is fair. Why should we expect it to be so?

    1. That’s true! We all die in the end, but what’s our legacy? How do we want to be remembered? It might be a question that can guide our actions…

      1. I suppose our legacy has two elements, what we want to be remembered for and what others will remember us for. One we can influence, the other less so!

      2. Yes, but I think that the one we’re controlling can influence the other one. If we’re doing good things, most of the others will remember us for those things. The same applies to the bad things we do.

      3. Very true.
        I am sitting here writing my next novel and I wonder if anyone will remember me for that. Probably not, but at least I love the writing process. Some people live with “if only” as part of their mantra. I don’t want to ever feel that.

      4. I agree with you. Fears and “if only” can be a major source for negative thinking. Good luck with your novel! What is it about?

      5. The novel is the third in a fantasy series. It’s title is Hell Fire and it is part of The Moondial series. I am about 60,000 words into this one and hope to have it published before the end of the year. Good luck with your blogging. I am not sure you can ever over think.

      6. It can be more important, but this is debatable from one religion to another. I would say that if we do things for the others, we might get a fulfilling sentiment. If we’re thinking about what can we take into the afterlife, it might be a little selfish.

      7. It’s not religious at all really. My point is simply that, things like money couldn’t be taken to anywhere else after death, right? So we should put importance on other things; you don’t have to be religious to live a good life.

        As Thoth said: ‘Live your life and you will never truly die’.

        What this means is that, if you live a good life full of value to YOU, those experience will transition with you through death.

      8. So is not in some way related to legacy? And I agree, having money is not what it’s all about. It’s more like having values and acting upon those values and if money come to you, use them to make the world a better place.

      9. Yes this is true, but this is why it’s important to think about what we take over. Our values might not be someone elses, so it really isn’t selfish. If we act in a way that is true to ourselves, the right people will benefit in the end – so yeah, that is kind of a legacy 🙂

  2. Nice. Makes me think of sunrises. We may mess up, but we get a fresh start every morning! Don’t waste it by wallowing in regret and in forgiveness.

  3. Something I had to learn was if I do stupid things it doesn’t mean I’m stupid. If I do shitty things it doesn’t mean I’m shit. What I do doesn’t determine who I am good or bad those actions aren’t me.

    1. I totally agree! That’s why I believe we can pay attention to our behavior because we are the ones changing it, not the other way around.

  4. It can actually be quite damaging for us, if not simply the mind, to hold onto the concept of ‘good and bad’, too hard.

    If you turn the number 8 on it’s side, we get the symbol for infinity, but it is also a part of sacred geometry. Everything comes up and goes down, just so it can carry on doing it again. This is natural and ‘normal’

    If we hold onto ‘good’ things, it makes it hard to deal with the ‘down’. We then impose resistance, which causes an imbalance on one side of the flow. Imagine the left side of the 8, getting bigger and bigger.

    Eventually this will burst, it has too, because the universe requires it.

    That is why things seem a hell of lot worse when it does; the system overflows.

    If we don’t give things in life so much good and bad bias/importance, we are able to ‘go with the flow’ better.

    It’s easy to say, but it’s especially important if you have any sort of OCD – trust me I know.

    So, if you planted a bad seed, so what? It’s normal that it would come around, isn’t it?

    If everything is happening just as it should..isn’t that actually, a good thing? 😉

    1. Yes, it’s normal. That’s why I’m saying we should pay attention on what kind of seeds do we plant. 🙂

  5. Great article, I also enjoyed reading the comments. There is a saying that I often remind myself of when I find I am experiencing one of those ‘Shit Happens’ moments and that is ‘this too shall pass’. Everything changes, as change is the only constant.

    I also wanted to say thank you for taking the time to follow my blog, I really appreciate that, and look forward to reading more of your articles 💜
