From the day we were born until our death everything happens because of a reason. Is our destiny in our hands or was it already decided before we were born? Can we prevent a specific event from happening or will it happen anyway? What is the meaning of all of these things going around?
For centuries people are split up into supporting two completely different ideas: Murphy’s Law and the Law of Attraction. What are those laws and which one should we support?
Murphy’s law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. This pessimistic law supports that everything can result as bad. Here are some examples of its laws:
- “Matter will be damaged in direct proportion to its value.”
Have you noticed that the most valuable items are irretrievably damaged, while things you don’t care about last forever? So take care of those things you value most because they’re most likely to be ruined.
- “Smile. Tomorrow will be worse.”
Ever believe in a better tomorrow? According to this Murphy’s law, you can never be sure whether your tomorrow will be better than today. Make the most of today; that’s all that matters. Though there’s a touch of pessimism here, this law teaches us to appreciate what we have instead of focusing on a better future.
- “Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he’ll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he’ll have to touch to be sure.”
When a fact is difficult to contest, people accept it at face value. When you present a fact that can be easily verified or refuted, however, people want to be sure. Why? Because humans tend to take overwhelming information for granted. They don’t have the resources or the presence of mind to work out the veracity of a tall claim.
- “If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.”
- “At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive last.”
- “Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.”
- “Anything is easier to take apart than it is to put together.”
The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually. If you focus on negative doom and gloom you will remain under that cloud. If you focus on positive thoughts and have goals that you aim to achieve you will find a way to achieve them with massive action.
For instance, if you constantly think that something bad is going to happen, it will happen but should you motivate yourself to think positively everything will be good.
Having talked about what the two main ideas are we can now talk about which law should be our guide in life. Being on the fence about which law I should support, I personally think that some things like death are inevitable in life and there is no way to prevent them from happening whether we believe in laws or not so, we should accept those facts. But if we constantly think that something bad is going to happen we will not be able to live a peaceful life. In order to keep those on balance, we should think positively while accepting the truths of life. By this way, we can live happily ever after.
