Some things confuse me. I’ve had times when all I think about is the truth in karma. The truth in destiny, chances, fate. And then someone dies or something irreversibly tragic happens unnecessarily and these truths don’t add up anymore, and it’s like they are all just enigmas that are better left unprobed. What confuses me is, if I’m true to myself, I know I’m actively from the school of thought that believes everything happens for a reason, and that there are no such things as coincidences. So by this belief, I know I’m still invariably somewhat a student of those enigmas and truths that don’t add up, and I go ahead and resume believing.
Lately, I’ve been more convinced of these truths even though I still have those confusing times where I wonder if while we’re given the choice of free will, wouldn’t that thwart the prominence of predestination? If we can decide on what path we’d take on, doesn’t that obscure the whole preordainment of events? But this is just talk for another day. For why I’m getting convinced, in as much as I know there’s a fat line between logic and divination, I’ve grown to find an actual connecting line between these two. I have actually. I know a little about maths and science to make me understand that karma is a lot more about cause and effect, chances tell about probability, destiny is similar to travelling distance with unknown variables like critical point, final point, mean free path, and a lot more. But this is just me trying to connect reasons to my beliefs.
How weakly do you believe in chances, kismet, luck, all those mumbo jumbos. On the surface, these all mean the same. If you were to come across a fortune teller willing enough to tell you about your fortune/future, would you pay rapt attention to what’s being said let alone believe it? Are there truths you can believe, and the ones you won’t justify a second thought to because you think they are untruths?
Some truths are easier to handle because some, I know, are just as clear as boiling water being a result of temperature rise, or a wooden chair being a result of nailing wood pieces together. How about green being a result of blue and yellow, a million seconds being about 11 days, or a butterfly being an ex-caterpillar. Tricky truths. There are some other truths that don’t go down easily with your brain, which do not make them any less worthy a truism – saying we humans share 50% of our DNA with a banana, or humpty dumpty actually being an egg. But these are the truths we can easily relate with because they can be proven, and they’re rid of mysteries. Unlike Fate and Destiny and Karma.
