Bad Times .. Worse Times

What explanations could be given to prolonged spells of misfortune and suffering? Most Astrological calculations and soothsayings assign the worser happenings to be caused by planetary and other out of this world phenomenon.Unmindful of the forebodings seem to be the right choice. Wouldn't the maxim of 'come what may' help in leading a worry free life, rather than live and act according to the weighing out of the pros and cons?

Hi sukumar, our daily life is bound to have up and down and it won’t go as right as rain as what we expected. If we come across any hardship we must try our best to face it bravely and find ways to solve it with positive attitude but not to escape away from it pessimistically. Really sometimes is fated to face failure it could hardly escape from it. What all we have to do is to take time and trouble to start it all over again and again and until to achieve success and this is what we call life. Anyway life in this modern world is full of adventure and challenges and only those winners could survive. posting and take care.

hi sukumar! well the world is imperfect. i am a christian and i believe that the world is nearing the end times, hence the problems, sufferings, and sicknesses. the bible has predicted all of these things to happen. even incest. so it is no surprise. the world is rotting faster. take care and God bless you!

Life is always a struggle for the ones who are not born with the silver spoon in their mouth. Anything may go wrong anytime with our job, calculations, business and life itself. The most we can do is to work relentlessly with a good acumen. Yes destiny plays a great part in the ups and downs in our life. I for one think that having a clean mind and hard work with a firm belief in God will be of great help to manage through any crisis.

I have had it really bad in my life and it seems to me that this is how my life will go. I do not know if this will continue in the afterlife. Cheers!!!

Living in a world which functions upside down, it sometimes seems that wars, murders, gossip and anger have become normal. It is not looking back at all the misfortune and suffering but rather we should ask ourselves 'what do we want for the rest of our life'? A worry free life as you say but how do we function when we are always being plunged by all this misfortune and suffering. It is a challenge to live in this world as we all long for peace, love and happiness. Some people think that positive thinking makes us passive, but it is just the opposite. Let us surrender to the will of God for He has the power to restore peace on earth.
