Duct Tape for the Soul for Feb. 8 & 9, 2014

Why Life Isn’t Fair

How many fits have you had about the, “unfairness of life?” Nothing seems equitable, equivalent or decently equal, does it? Guess what? You aren’t wrong! Some people are born geniuses; others make a small rock look bright. You may be offended by this, but it is a fact. Tall, short, skinny, chubby, beautiful, ugly, athletic,  crippled; humans come in all forms and types of physical and mental existence, talent, awareness and attractiveness. No one is the same, although everyone has the same type of soul!

Oh, but wait! Those souls aren’t at the same point of being either, some being more experienced, more evolved, further along the line of progression towards the godly, and away from the rock like state of beginning we all start as. You don’t like that, do you? Sit down, you’ll like the rest of it even less.

First, your physical manifestation has a long and convoluted reason for why it’s as it is. Perhaps your ancestors had a tendency to fall for homely but easy members of the opposite sex, and you got the results? Your body, after all, is merely a vehicle for your soul. That body can be impacted by your mother’s crappy choices! Booze, drugs, some Drano while pregnant, and you suffer the consequences, the impairments from her lousy choices. Sorry.

Each life you live is different. You end up in the body you have because of things you need to learn. You make fun of ugly people in one life, you’ve guaranteed yourself a turn as an ugly troll down the road. Your soul has many lessons to learn, and when you’re wicked and spiteful, you get some serious, personal opportunity to learn them. You won’t enjoy it either. It pays to avoid bad karma, by being a decent human!

Understand this: you learn a different lesson being incarnated as a blind child in America than you do being a crippled yak herder’s son in Tajikistan, especially with gay tendencies! I told you, life isn’t fair. It’s not intended to be. It’s comprehensive, intended to perfect you into a higher state of godliness. You face living maybe a million lifetimes, and you won’t be thrilled by most of them. That’s why the Buddhists talk about the burden of living!

Still, if you’d stop resisting your instruction, get on with it, maybe not thrilled, but at least resigned and willing, you’d learn faster and more easily. God doesn’t care how hard you make it, He just insists that you learn. Life isn’t fair. Learn that: it’s the first lesson. It will work out in the long haul. There’s a lot of beauty and love to be had, if you’d stop wasting time making yourself more miserable than necessary too!
