I always wondered if the above statement is true in every case. I can't help but feel that a lot of deserving people meet failure everyday. When you think about it logically, we are just a collection of atoms held together by a complex balance of forces. So, when a human(collection of atoms) does a bunch of stuff, is nature supposed to know that this "human" is doing something that is useful for itself and reward this "collection of atoms" with a certain action or item in the future which would provide this "collection of atoms" a sense of fulfillment and achievement?“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Load of bullocks.
The complexity of our universe is so huge that every human action may not get its equivalent karmic reaction. So many factors weigh in - Butterflies have to flutter, the chaos of the world has to be made sense of and hopefully, the universe follows the laws of physics at every continuous moment without fail. After all these variable factors are taken into account, it is with wonder I look upon the fact that if humans (and not any other animal, mind you) get what they deserve. So, I guess when a human does get what (we think) they deserve, it is something to behold.
If you noticed, I did not take one other factor in my above paragraphs - God. Oh, how I wish an all knowing omnipresent God existed and would give people what they deserve. It would make the world so much easier. Everything would be black and white. Every decision would be easy. What you do is either right or wrong. No shades of grey in between. Oh, and how astoundingly boring such a world would be.
I guess I am writing this because I want something in my life right now. And I don't know what it is and don't know what to do. Oh well, I know I cannot depend on the universe to help. It seems to be quite a moody thing.
