The Game We Play

Why is it that we think that we can fool life? We plan and plan, when in the end it ends up being life who decides. We can fill our minds with worries about tomorrow, but the problem is that we can never really imagine things exactly as they will happen. So, why the uneasiness? We can choose the way we play, but not the cards we are dealt. And you know something? the game already has a pre-established set of rules by which you play unknowingly because everything is so deeply connected. The issue lies in its subtlety and complexity, but that is precisely what makes the plot so interesting.

“When you realize how perfect everything is, you will throw your head back and laugh at the sky” -Buddha

So that’s it. Live lightly for everything is perfect. Life is a rhetorical question, one with no need for an answer. Live lightly and laugh with me.
