It is objective, chaotic, and most of all, impartial. The people who complain that life isn’t fair only want to it to be fair in their favor. We reap what we sow; thus is the law of nature. It is human to seek reason for everything. Reason gives us purpose; it gives us absolution; it allows the weak to carry on in life, believing that there is someone or something that is greater than us.
Weakness is not a bad thing in itself. The belief in a superego (or higher power) allows these people to draw incredible strength, when those who are supposedly stronger place limits on themselves. As Christians oft quote, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9-11
But let’s not go off tangent. The title of today’s article is Life Physics (I would call it Metaphysics, but it is considerably less catchy and prone to confusion with the Aristotlean philosophy).
I’m not really a sciency person–and by no means am I an expert in physics–but it is my personal belief that all of Life is intertwined–Science and Spirit are two sides to the same coin. Over the years of reading “game” theory, I’ve realized that many concepts have similarities in the physical natural world. And for some reason Newton’s laws of motion drew my attention. Substituting certain terms, I saw similarities in the way Life itself worked. Newton saw that the laws applied to the physical world, but I think that it applies to the metaphysical as well.
We all know that Life isn’t easy. Every day we have to wake up and face the pressures of life–resistance at every turn, from getting ourselves out of bed; to work or school; to complete assignments. We face emotional and mental barriers at every turn and sometimes it wears us down. For the most of us, we manage to just balance this resisting force with enough willpower to get through the day. Never giving more than we have to. For some of us, this wears us down. We get weaker and less motivated to do anything any more. We feel almost dead on the inside. The lack of passion kills us slowly and surely until the day our heart stops beating.
Your “velocity” is you moving through your life–through time. When this “velocity” finally hits zero is when you die. You stop moving, and an object at rest will remain at rest. There is no Life, no resisting force. Likewise, there is no you to take action anymore. It’s the end. That is why when someone gives up hope and the will to live they slowly, but very surely, die.
On the other hand, even if your Life is in motion (moving through time), it isn’t necessarily a good thing. Like I mentioned earlier, most people put in just enough effort to get through Life. They let external authority dictate their path and only do as much as they need. Now, that’s not a bad thing in itself either. They go through Life, not pushing themselves to reach their fullest potential–right until the very end where they do not have the strength or ability to act against the counter-forces of Life (physically or otherwise).
Is this the kind of Life you want? Saying yes does not make you lesser than other people. We are all different in our own ways. But like I mentioned before in a previous article, one of the secrets to happiness is growth. Growth is acceleration. It is raising the bar higher each time and using the momentum of positive attitude of willpower to overcome the opposing forces in Life. Whether it is the rejection or failures you face. You give your all to overpower, achieving the most out of Life.
I was having a late-night chat with a good friend of mine and he said something that struck me. Quoting Tony Robbins, he said that putting in poor effort will get you no results; putting in good effort will get you poor results. The only way to get good results is to put in your best effort. Give your 100%.
Ideally, Life is smooth sailing. We do not face any resistance and we reap what we sow. But in reality, we reap less than what we sow. Too often we expect too much and give too little. We try to find the easy way out and wishing for good things to befall us and become bitter when it happens to others.
We can wait for luck, or we can make our own luck. Sometimes the wind does blow in your favor and the journey is smooth-sailing, but the true test is when storms arise. Would you have the tenacity and the strength to push against the waves instead of getting tossed around like a sock puppet? Your willpower is a muscle, and it needs to be developed. If you can’t put your all into doing the littlest of things, what makes you so sure that you’ll be ready for the big show when you’re thrown into the ring with the pros?
If you are like me, don’t be content just moving at a constant velocity through Life. Push yourself beyond your comfort zone, beyond your current situation. Work towards your fullest potential by giving your 100% and Life will reward you greatly.
