(Nov. 2) - A 40-year-old mom who had never played the lottery before is now a millionaire, the New York Post reported Monday. Mi Hyun Moon walked
into a deli in New York's Queens borough on Sept. 14 to get $5 in change so she could catch a bus ride home. But in order to do so, she had to buy
something. On a whim, Moon bought a Lotto ticket, and now she's the winner of a $5 million jackpot.

Ok I just I'm just posing something to all of you... what are the odds of winning the lottery jackpot at all? Its so rare, I've even heard some
people call it the "fool's tax".
Now consider the fact that it's the first lottery ticket she said she ever bought.
Just think about it is all i'm sayin...
Perhaps things happen for a reason.
Perhaps they happen because they are needed to.
Perhaps they are needed to and they happen the most convenient way possible.
Perhaps they need to happen for other things to happen.
Perhaps those other things need to happen because they need to happen.
Perhaps what needs to happen is a natural progression and therefore the process can also be observed.
Perhaps often what we want to happen can be what needs to happen. And perhaps sometimes the opposite.
Perhaps what needs to happen, is that we learn that something we desire doesn't need to happen.
Perhaps learning needs to happen as long as one observes time, as means for survival.
Perhaps the point of survival is to observe and learn the consequence of choices.
Perhaps our reason we aspire to learn and grow is to bring abundance and joy.
Perhaps through doing this we get this sense of fulfillment, and therefore seek to expand this.
Perhaps through this, we realize our individual desires are actually the desires of our expanded environment.
Perhaps in this sense, joy and abundance is waiting for all who aspire to evolve.
Perhaps things need to be broken down so new things can be made.
Perhaps this is what we call evil.
Perhaps our greatest times of suffering can lead to profound wisdom, and leaps of evolution.
Perhaps the fish that evolved to grow legs did suffer in the sense that we suffer by pushing our boundaries.
Perhaps we do it because we feel the need to, and perhaps as long as we will observe, will we learn, and no amount of distraction can stop this
Perhaps life is but a dream, but jumping off a building still hurts. - logic.
Perhaps logic is the essence of observation, and thus intertwined with a need to define what it observes.
Perhaps logic needs to adapt as does the life that continues to evolve.
Perhaps it needs to do this to keep up with its assumptions of what it observes.
Perhaps what it observes is limited only to the depths of imagination.
Perhaps to observe, the creative essence for molding reality needs to exist.
Perhaps it's a paradox, a yin and yang scenario where the one cannot exist without the other or be defined without including the other.
Perhaps this is the reason we struggle to find our footing in this kaleidoscopic reality.
Perhaps an open mind is one that does not settle on a certain logical observation, given it's flexibility, so..
Perhaps this why many people feel crazy, but maybe we're being too hard on ourselves and should be more humble and observant of our learning
Perhaps anger, greed, and intolerance are defense mechanisms, because the wisdom to understand escapes us, that would lead to a humbling respect, and
greater self-sufficiency, so one may be abundant to give, while serving everyone's need to "survive" and evolve.
Perhaps there are others who must manipulate, lie, and deceive because the expected result they feel unable to produce or self-realize.
Perhaps through observing common themes we sympathize and therefore don't get carried away from the hostility towards us and work to resolve it, so
we can continue to grow and minimize resistance.
Perhaps through our experiences with these people that suffer, we suffer from what is projected towards us, and again we grow wise and aware from
experience. Your enemy who gets under your skin is a valueable tool for self-observation, and with that understanding, you almost learn to appreciate
them, maybe even respect them and more, given your sympathy for their own suffering.
Perhaps this is why some find such an interest in social change, for the growth of others helps to also ensure their own growth.
Perhaps the most inspiration come from ideas that lie so far out our field of observation that we aspire to experience them.
Perhaps this is why there is art,
Perhaps this is why their is technology.
Perhaps this is why their is life....
Perhaps learning leads to wisdom, to awareness, to greater depth of experience, leading to greater joy and fulfillment to be chases. That fantastic
ever-expanding prize keeps getting more desirable.
Perhaps this woman winning the lottery is an example of extreme rarity, of which is only relative in perspective. What if the lottery was for one
winner in the whole possibly universe. Again, it's all relative to perspective. But what happens when you become more self-aware and realize that
every day you are observing the unfoldment of a grand desire? What happens when it's as little as wishing you had something, only to have it
literally fall on your lap the very next day? What if you also dreamed it would happen? What if you dreamed it would happen..YEARS before it
happened, and the dream accurately reflected the event and surroundings?
What i'm posing here ladies and gents, is how one question can lead to another... that observation is inevitable. We can speed it up or slow it down,
but we're always observing, thus always learning. What I'm also suggesting is that when broken down into simplistic concepts, the most supernatural
themes can seem natural and fitting to circumstance. It doesn't matter what label you give yourself, or what category you solidify, limit and
(temporarily) enslave your observation to..whether you find your answers in a book, some cards, the bottom of a coffee cup, a bunch of bones,
splattered paint on the wall, and whatever wacky methods you've tried to test this idea you may think I'm hinting at.... but you will always
observe. It doesn't matter what pace you go at, or how you choose to go about it... our logical reality authorities have suppose it can take millions
of years for noticeable evolution... hey perhaps if you lived forever you could grow wings, travel dimensions, you get what i'm saying, but you will
change as long as you long as you live, and learn as long as you observe, and your experiences will deepen as you become more aware.
I am not the same person I was 3 years ago, or even a week ago. Imagine what a million years could do to me or you. Observation, growth, evolution,
the deepening of one's experience of reality, boundless creativity or a freak accident beyond comprehension. If I think I begin to understand it, I
get concerned almost.
... I think, surely us mere humans can't comprehend such a thing? Perhaps we don't give ourselves enough credit however.
This woman has experienced an event that has provided an opportunity for us all to curiously observe. It's these little things, its like we all won
the lottery, its a relative matter of how you assign value.
Guys I just don't know how long I can relate to this powerless, limited bubble all us sane people are expected to conform to.
I'm a mad man, but you know, I seem to be a lot happier and aware then I remember myself to be years ago. It can get pretty crazy but I try to roll
with the punches and understand what's actually throwing them. Call it some programmed inherent nature, but I just gotta keep evolving dudes, and I
have to help others do the same as I observe commonalities, and understand their life also affects mine. I've learned I feel at my best when I'm
doing something for someone else. My selfish gains are the most rewarding through selfless acts. I'm not on some spiritual high horse.. I used to be
an #$$hole, and thought happy people were just damn delusional. The earth is beautiful but just as an artist screws up a painting, we humans can seem
like a cancer on this planet.... but damn... is not such a great damn opportunity to learn. You beat suffering once you can hold it in the light of
opportunity I tell ya.
Feel free to get crazy with me. Try not to be hard on yourself or others. It's a madhouse, you're allowed to get pissed off, you don't have to
FORCE confusion, anger and such things out of your system, nor do you need to meet any one else's expectations, but you have my word that through
wisdom, these things begin to fade, and you may try to cling to your badass outer expression but sooner or later you might get grouped in with the
dreaded "new age flakes" or oOoOo those crazy "religious people". Its like its a crime to be aspire to be wise and loving as a result. Don't fear
the "social embarrassment", or being grouped into a category you try so hard to avoid. It's just assumptions after-all right? And once your so far
down that %$^^&%$ rabbit hole you don't care. Everyone has their own opinion that is equally valid, but its message and worth is relative to who's
And I could go on.. a madhouse I tell ya.. But you know what, I feel bloody great, and I am achieving desires that seemed so out of my grasp, don't
fear what's down that hole of speculation and the reckless disregard for things assumed to be known. And it's like the more you go down the hole
the more you get to know yourself..as you bump your head in the darkness of ignorance, and that let the wisdom that follows be the light in that
tunnel so to speak.
Perhaps I'm just $(%*$( looney.
EDIT: screw up typos, i'm sure there's more.
