It all keeps getting better and better and better!
Since I joined the TED community to listen to the best thinkers on planet earth right now .. it has occured to me how lucky I am.
This is not the first time I have realised this .. I have observed my disproportional luck through every stage of my life .. what is this?
Sure, I have a certain amount of intelligence, but not so much more than anyone else.
Sure, I have had a lot of pain and sadness, but still - I am here. How could that be?
Look at this guy presenting 3 methods to relieve the world of the curse of malaria .. many people will recieve his blessing as if by magic.
Please share your experiences of almost metaphysical luck. I am sure I am not the only one.
Closing Statement from Mitch SMith
Many thanks all who have contributed!
You have helped me develop my understanding and appreciation of the inherently positive and hopeful energy underlying this life.
The speakers on TED are exemplary of this principle.
I had hope that more would share on thier own extraordinary experienecs, but this is probably more feflective of the way I framed ny question that the responses.
