I shouldn't have written that last post about my father. He's really a wonderful man. There is just a lot of messed up things that happened because of his belief systems and what you see in his life is the karmic result. I do believe there is divine justice, and that nature or some G-dly force has his eye on you even when you are alone. Whether you are a good person or not is not the determining factor whether you will have a good life. The determining factor is 1) what you do with your life, and 2) how you live it. If you live a life floating down the current, so to speak, moving with the herd, so to speak, your life will be mediocre like everyone else's life is. If you inject a sense of gusto into your world and are proactive -- essentially, if you are always one step ahead of life, and you influence life instead of life influencing you -- then the doors for a good and meaningful life swing wide open, the light shines, and an invitation for the good life appears in your pocket. However, live a life passive indulgence and just go with the flow, then no soup for you.
