Did you ever notice that when you do something which can have two outcomes, right and wrong, and you choose to choose blindly, that when you choose wrongly, you blame the condition of the world for the outcome. Yet, if you choose correctly, you just go along as if it were the order of the day.

Examples? Putting on an undershirt without first looking to see which is the front or back. Plugging in an electrical cord without first looking to see which is the fat prong. Sticking your foot into a shoe without looking to see if it's the right or left one. Getting in a foreign shower and assuming which handle is for the hot water. I could go on.

The point is: Why, when we choose wrongly (as we do 50% of the time, I would suppose), do we beat ourselves around the face and neck, cursing our fate in this horrible world and crying out, "Why ME?"

Yet, when we choose correctly, we just go about our merry way with hardly another thought of the matter?

I think I know. We think we deserve happiness and prosperity and good luck. Anything else would be a misalignment of the stars against us. But I do not know from whence we got this idea.
