I don't think that it's a gift, it's just a facet of reality.
I think it's based on your virtue of character.
Of course we all have shortcomings, but which way do we strive to treat other human beings?
When you know which way you are, you will know your fate.
You do not have to seek these types of things, they are all around you.
None of us actually know what all of this means, or what is real vs not real. No matter how convinced someone believes they are, they simply are not
privy to all possible information relating to something. It hasn't been discovered yet.
No telling what is behind all of this. It could be anything at this point we lack any real solid scientific data.
Everything is all over the place when it comes to theories, beliefs, religions, various cultural traditions etc.
I've seen enough truly inexplicable things in my life to know by this point that it is a traumatic experience for anyone. Not necessarily negative or
positive, but a life changing event. For better or worse.
Those saying you are on the wrong path, this is incorrect. Unless of course we are all on the wrong path.
Because we are all on our own paths. But where do those paths cross and in which way will you treat those whom you meet.
We are all wrong we are all right, it's not worth debating because it's subjective.
That's why I said it's about virtue of character. Only you know you. Only I know me.
The universe and reality know us better than we know ourselves. So judging people's virtues seems to be a pitfall and a vice. We can choose our own
virtues though, because we have to uphold them.
We all have more to learn. So I only trust myself. And I am forced to trust that what happens happens. And that's the way it is. So no matter what you
should not worry about these things.
It's far funner to just worry about mostly enjoying life and the people you meet. And to enjoy all the cool parts about existence. While they last. It
seems to me nothing lasts forever. So we can consider ourselves very lucky to exist in the state of living that we are in right now, however short it
Especially considering the gazillion negative things that could happen to us that would crush our civilization. We are in a extremely fragile state.
It's absurd how lucky we appear to be lol.
I hope this is more like the type of reply you were actually looking for OP. I was actually trying to answer your question with all of that.
