Dreamer's World March 17 2017 - Daily Prompt "Luck"
The Daily Prompt is “Luck”. I have always believed that “luck” is what you make of things around you. I am not a spiritual person, but I do support the notion of karma. Whatever you do to others will eventually come back to you. It is often a long and drawn-out process, but if you are kind and decent and supportive of others you will find those people who will treat you in the same way.
Life is full of people who fail to understand this “luck” or karma. They go through life on a never-ending quest to accumulate more of everything, regardless of how their behavior impacts others. They often see other people as nothing more than impediments standing in the way of what they want. Therefore people are treated like disposable objects.
If you live your life in this way, you may enjoy some short-term gain, but you will never find happiness. These people might become rich but they find themselves surrounded only by people who cannot be trusted because they also see others as nothing more than opportunities to be exploited.
I suppose I see “luck” very differently than I see greed. Someone who works hard and obtains success really cannot attribute their success to “luck”. It is a result of their hard work and dedication. How they get there is the key. If they trample others on the way, the karma will eventually come back to them in a negative way. If they succeed by improving themselves and others at the same time, then their karma will be different and more pleasant.
Remember that “luck” really exists only in your own mind. Also remember that karma can be a real bitch.
