Will everything fall into place?

2 years, 1 month ago

So I’m just wondering what some of you think about this. Do you believe that if one puts all his energy into enjoying life and doing the most he can for people, be it at work or not, will everything else fall into place? Do you think good things happen to “good” people, when I say that I’m calling myself a good person but I try to help if I can and I volunteer for stuff so other people don’t have to like cleaning details and stuff like that. Just a general effort to better my surroundings and myself. But I’m getting off topic, do you believe that everything that happens in your life happens exactly when it needs to happen? I’m a strong believer of acceptance of what happens because it was meant to happen but I’m just curious to what others believe.

I recently am more inclined to subscribe to the idea that everything happens purposefully. Especially since i read Zen and the Art of Happiness. Everything that happens is good for you in some way, you just need to see it.

The part I am not sure about is this. It is commonly stated that your life situation mirrors the nature of your consciouness, so if you are a happy, positive person, good things will happen to you, but I am starting to think that good things happen to everyone it just depends on how they see them, and that everything that needs to happen, happens. For example, we shouldn’t fret when someone rejects the ideas we present to them, the people who the ideas were meant for will pick up on it. There are more examples but I’m really tired right now.

@tylerponte, Generally I believe if you are nice to people the chances of them being nice in return dramatically increases. But besides this, I have noticed that being a good or bad person is not a consideration of the universe. People believe in Karma and all that but things happen because of cause and effect, perhaps some greater universal goal, but not because of morality.
Perhaps the greater universal goal is in the vast benefit of all in the end, but considering the scope of things, one good person does not even make a blip on the radar and he would be sold down the river by the universe in a second if it is suited to do so. So it is worth being considerate to others but expecting the universe to cut you a break is not likely.
You just have to remember that you have to keep yourself efficient enough to be able to help anyone at all, and that means taking care of yourself appropriately.

Pretty much agree with @trek79, here. I’ve seen too many bad things happen to great people for the world to be considered as benefiting everybody on some greater level. But I completely believe that those who make an effort to be kind and selfless people are generally more likely to be rewarded by those who they surround themselves with. Happiness, when selfless and genuine, is infectious :)

@tylerponte, Without a doubt, I think everything will fall into place. The underlying question now, is whether it will be for the better or for the worse. I believe that there is no such thing as coincidence, and that destiny is bound to bring us to places far far away. Everything happens for a reason–just like what people always say in order to give a shallow consolation. I’m a bit off topic already, so i’m going back. Everything will fall into place. But we have to classify it and regard whether it is good or bad.
