What do you believe in? A God? Gods? An explosion of atoms? Karma? A Nirvana, reincarnation, heaven, hell, a man floating on a cloud damning us all or maybe protecting us? Maybe you believe in a combination of these, maybe none at all. Maybe you’re not sure what you believe; in all honesty I’m not quite sure what I believe in sometimes. But I think even if I could confidently choose an ideology, or combination of such, I think it all comes back to a balance of right now. I don’t know where I’ll go after I died or if all the things I’ve done on earth will matter when I’ve been buried and left the material world behind me.. but I am beginning to realize that that all our ideologies apply to a “later,” and everything “right now” is a scale.
A scale in the idea that nothing can be existentially bad or existentially good. When you have a row of good, you will experience bad until everything is at equilibrium again, same visa versa. But what if this doesn’t just exist on an individual level, but as a whole. Think about it.. where do you lie? Are you a person who no matter how much good you do, the effort you put in, how much you try, or the positive optimistic mindset you have, it ends up bad? Or are you someone who no matter what you do wrong in the world you still end up on top? Don’t for a second think that I don’t know we sometimes walk ourselves into our downfalls, but what if the average Joe experiences all their bad days no matter the effort they put in, because they’re balancing someone’s good days? What if you’re having a little harder struggle in life to balance someone else’s good? What if I’m not just an external balance of good and bad but a fraction of a whole, because we are divided; some of us born to live a certain life. Those wouldn’t mean you’re destined for only one kind of experience of life and it’s not to say you cannot shift the balance into a different path. For those who believe in science and numbers, Equilibrium can change when the substances or parts of the equation change, and for those who believe in a Higher power, the God you believe in is constantly weaving a new plan for every turn you decide to take right?
Different ideologies, different ways to experience life after death, but the same “right now.”
What if if the perfect balances we need for Survival are not limited to H20, CO2, and the components of air, but the overall experiences of our lives. And if that’s the case, where are you in it all?
