Let the Chips fall where they may

"Its only after you've lost everything that ur free to do anything"

Why do we not wish to live happily the way we are instead of pursuing fantasies? Each and every individual in a society plays a key role in keeping the cycle of life rolling....if there were no sweepers, who would clean the city for you, if there were no doctors, who would u go to when ur sick

In this modern era, every one wants to be the king of the world, but sadly, theres only one king out of the millions...not 2 or 3. So do what ur best at....excel in it....and "Let the Chips Fall where they May"

    Apr 15 2012: Wow. Ok. Alot going on here. Freedom from loss. Interplantary resettlement. Fatalism. Dreams and fantasies. Finding personal value, and laisser-faire involvement. I would like to stay with the main heading: Let the chips...may. I would offer that people have tried since the dawn of time to do so. Not the 'leaders', not the 'A-types', but the majority of people have tried to do their best, be a good citizen, and live happily ever after. The problem is that one day some 'leader' sends someone to knock on your door and take you and your children for 'the cause'. Leaders love that we 'live and let live'. That's one less person in the way.

      Apr 15 2012: hahhahahhhahhahaaa......ok i admit....that i overdid myself this time....but the thing which ur trying to portray is that im more like an anti planner, and a person who goes by the rules of the government. which is utterly wrong. My perception is " Do ur best and leave the rest to God". as for the "Leaders injustice" part.....and since i belong from a place called ( Federally administered tribal area- near Afghanisthan border) where ther's complete lawlessness...if u don't join the cause of the ruling party...then ull end up in my backyard...where every person has his own rules of playing the game saying" Weapon is my ultimate Law"...but any ways....thanks for the comment :D...God bless ya!!! and cheers :D

    Apr 16 2012: No... Please don't... Please be a doctor, don't be a street sweeper. We've got enough street sweepers, the world needs doctors, engineers, chemists, and physicists... and almost anyone can be one. It takes work and dedication, but don't let anyone convince you it's only for the one in a million... "It is better to live one day as a lion, than ten thousand years as a lamb"

    Apr 15 2012: "Why are we focused more on preventing a disaster, rather dealing with the after affects of a disaster. For instance, the destruction of our planet is for sure, why are we not enthusiastic about finding another earthly planet and creating earthly atmosphere for life to evolve."

    Not really following the logic on this one. Isn't finding another earthly planet a way of *prevention* of disaster?
    I think that we are just as focused on dealing with the after effects of something. Take medicine for example. Do we have more vaccines or do we have more medication? Prevention and treatment.

    I do agree with your point on how every individual in a society plays a key role in keeping the cycle of life rolling. We all strive for power but if everyone was powerful, the world would be dysfunctional. I don't know where you are getting at in your question though: why do we not wish to live happily the way we are instead of pursuing fantasies? What I want to ask you is why can't you allow people to dream? In order to make something a reality, you must dream first. And it is those that don't dream that are the sweepers you talk about.

      Apr 15 2012: i think the earthly planet perception which i wrote is a little messed u said that prevention and treatment can be the same in other words i was talking from a single perspective...while u were talking from a broader perspective. Thumbs up for that
      The second part...about fantasies......Dream is a very a dangerous word can make and break ur life....things will become more dicey if u started believing in dreams....rather be more realistic and be factual about life.....the stories which you hear of a lowlife person becoming a leader or a a 1 out of a million case.....i dreamed of geting into MIT....i studied as hard as i could.....but i failed.....and studying Business studies in a mediocre university in Pakistan...So this whole story tells ya...that stop listening to the media crap...that one day ur gona be a moviestar,rockstar,scientist, Leader or wat ever....but rather believe in the fate which is awaiting you
