Life has its ups and downs. We learn a lot in life, some of what we learn is good – some is not.
The general karmic tenor of individuals seems to also vary. There are people who seem to be happy all the time and often get there way. Many experience some joys and some hardships and sorrows. There are people who seem to get stuck with having a bad time most or even all of the time.
There are a lot of theories about why this happens. In some cases it seems like the universe is all too fair and other times it seems radically unfair. There are those who believe it is never anyone’s fault and others who always blame people for their own misfortunes but never for their successes in life. Some believe that every one of us actually really does get what we deserve.
However you feel about it, this is how it is today anyway.
