How To Catch Luck By Its Tail
Question: Some psychologists were asked the question: “How to avoid failures?” They said failures could not and should not be avoided because we learn from failures. They said further that how often we fail is not what matters, but how many times we rise and how we react to falling.
This is a good answer, but after all, failures break some people or force them to abandon the goal, some become passive or helpless, and others fall into depression. Failures always bring pain. What is the correct approach to failure?
Answer: Whatever should be will be. What should happen will happen. We must be ready for everything and understand that life is like this, good times, bad times.
Question: Does it mean that bad times are always followed by good times?
Answer: Maybe good times will come for a little bit, touch you, but they will come. And then bad times come again.
Question: How will I change then? Will I no longer suffer and be hurt from this?
Answer: No. We are arranged in such a way that we just run away from failures. We cannot analyze them correctly, acknowledge them, correct something, and prepare ourselves for something. We simply cannot. We only work to escape from them. This is a completely wrong action and philosophy itself.
If we link these two states, failure and good luck together, then we will turn ourselves into the ones who have control over them, and we will not be weak-willed either during failures or during successes.
Question: That is, do I sort of connect black and white?
Question: Do I not perceive it as a failure?
Answer: You rise above both states and therefore go through them easily. We just need to understand what it means to “rise above them.”
It means rising above your life aspiration, to stop chasing luck. Understand that today, now, you are within luck itself, already inside it.
This is like when physicists say that there are all sorts of black holes. So in fact, we ourselves are in a black hole, in an astronomical black hole.
Question: What is behind it?
Answer: Nothing and we need nothing. Relax and understand that you are inside nature. Let it guide you. The main thing is to surrender to nature.
Question: Am I leaving the oars? There is a current, and I let go of the oars?
Question: Is there a current?
Answer: Even that does not matter to me.
Question: Is this even possible?
Answer: If you believe in a wise, great, eternal, almighty nature, then in my opinion, this is the most reasonable solution.
Besides, everything you come up with to go against it on your own only highlights the insignificance, limitation, misunderstanding, ignorance, and disagreement with this great nature inside which we exist.
Do not resist anything. Do not invent anything. Just try to understand what nature itself means, agree with it, cling to it, and you will find the most optimal component of your existence.
