Wherever and wherever in your life you have felt good, it has been only because of your own efforts. Your happiness and your joy was yours and the secret is you. Nobody caused it and to deny that fact is to deny yourself and the power of your ego, which would further lead to degradation and decay as it has always been in the past.
There are changes happening everyday but the world itself, is not changing. People will always remain the way they are and were. Even myself. It's a really terrible thing to digest that a 2-cent worth person can actually run my life. My God ! Whatever did happen to my brains, their muscles and power?
The solution is ego and it's potential to change my life, for the better. Ego is not all negative as such, it has been a very serious error of conditioning in my life to accept or think of it as such. The more powerful an ego, the more obstacles it can overcome, the more authoritive figure's opinion it can label as 'shit,' the more fearless a person becomes and the more he can rebel without any harm to himself.
Send an innocent man (or a young adult) to work nowadays, and he's sure to get abused, bullied, played by, taken for a ride and knocked out. In a way one or two knocks and a blackened eyeball are essential but the 'fun' caused by this stalking world can cause serious injuries which may lead to death.
I just hope nobody dies this way. As for the essence of one or two hard knocks, it may teach the person everything he needs to know about the world, that life is not rosy and clean and fair outside. It is a very mean and nasty world. 90-95% people may be brutal and that includes everyone who you may think, are trustworthy. They will deceive you when you call for them or worse, at the last moment.
It's a dog-eat-dog world or better, it is the situation of being eaten or eating, hunting or hunted. These may be some strong opinions but they are essential skills to learn and understand and most importantly, to practice. It can heal your life, change your world, get you results and not get rolled over by again.
Whenever you get down at the market place, make sure that you know your art well - The Game flow and the techniques. Practice and hone up your skills everyday, after all you don't leave your house and go outside to have a ball. It's innocent sweet 16 year old girls get gang raped, killed mercilessly and get dumped in a trash dumpyard, who have illusions of this sort.
Your father at the church tells you that God exists and Jesus is your only saviour. You may believe him but that won't save you from getting fired by that nasty boss. You see people staring at you in the streets, when you hear them scream in your mind that, "Your life is your bloody problem."
Anyways, a big and awesome life starts just with an idea or a chain of thoughts which you already have or may have, if you are being honest with yourself while, trying hard in getting a life that you know that you deserve and even if you happen to eat and fully digest many dogs on the way, it's perfectly fine. Dog hate dogs.
