i read and thus i ponder, sometimes with clarity and the other times, i get lost in my own illusion.. the sublime vs the silly ... who knows where my head is at today ...

Why me ?
the hindu's have it easy .. they can dump everything on Karma ... Voila! problem solved .. they know the answer..
karma says every effect has a cause.
christianity says: as you sow, so shall you reap, do as to others as you would have them do unto you ...
so it's not only the hindus - every belief apparently has something along the same lines !
bottom line : nothing is arbitrary
here's what i don't get : if you know the "why", then why not change ? i mean, if you're gonna keep doing what you did, you're only gonna get what you got ! no big surprise there :)
yet change ( being the only change-less law ) seems to have to be wrenched out of most - nature seems to have to slap you across the face real hard ( most don't seem to respond to gentle nudges ) and only then, is one inclined to apply oneself to change.
to re-cap : you are not happy, yet you do nothing ( intrinsically ) to alter that state of misery ... superficial stuff doesn't count .. i am referring here to a shift in consciousness .. an alteration in the cosmic view of your existence.
a life of excessive indulgence, self absorption and superficiality are increasingly the goal. i want more and more but i wanted it all handed to me ... i want to do nothing but have everything. can someone explain the math to me ?
in terms of material objects, that is just stupid but in terms of life as a whole, it is tantamount to suicide !
so here's the answer to "why me" - because you willed it; by your thoughts, your deeds and your words - it's all on you ! no back stage pass here and no get out of jail card !
now the only remaining question is : what are you going to do to change it :)
