Not the book / film (which are really rather good), but the concept.
It’s been some time since I looked at ‘life stuff’ here, but it has been on my mind.
Humans are amazing creatures, by and large, and we do some pretty cool things. Sometimes, we are… well… unabashedly ‘human’ and make mistakes. The majority of us feel a sense of guilt and aim to right the wrong and feel positive when karma is back in equilibrium.
Occasionally, we do something massive and can’t seem to right it. This doesn’t mean that the issue hasn’t been dealt with. Usually, this is in our heads, even if the wronged party has accepted that all has been done to address it.
For some, like me, this can lead to a general sense of baggage. We carry these issues with us and consider all of the pursuant actions of our lives in response to the offending act.
Until recently, I thought that I was in a spiral of being dangled the atonement carrot and having it snatched away. This seems to have finally balanced out and I feel that I am now being given the opportunity to move forward and make a life without the pains of previous errors weighing me down.
The real question is whether this is some cosmic scale being balanced or just a personal sense of positive feeling. I would consider both, due to being a logical and spiritual kinda guy, so I feel positive because of the balancing.
This is all personal, however, and I am not stating that everyone should subscribe to my theory. I just offer my views and leave the rest to you.
I will leave you with some wise words, though. We all have good days and bad days and every single thing we do is based on our thoughts and abilities at that time. As long as we do the best we can with these, it has not been for naught.
