In a way, there is a certain way we all must swim in our pools of life and existence. We are seeing an object reality of that in the current events of the day in politics, and if change was not in the air there would not be currents of turmoil all around subliminally. With that said, I will write the rest of this article. Sure, reality to be controlled must be obeyed, indeed right down to a person driving a car or flying in a plane. If normal human nature could easily be circumvented, and greatness was easy, we would have solved all of our social and reality problems long ago and far away. Indeed, as we can tell by the current Supreme Court Justice hearings and so many other recent nominations for that, we have a very, very long way to go, even if we want to see the best and be the best “instantly”.
So, personally, I do not believe in instantaneous evolution like the stop action quick flower growth taken by cameras in nature movies. I believe in genuine natural law and jurisprudence in that to rule nature and help it work for us, we must obey the timetable and realities of nature. I was going to make the mistake and say something like, “make it work for us”, but that would not be accurate or “even in the ball park” of meaning I am trying to get at. What is in the “reality ball park” that is nearest is this, though: We must go through it to fully understand it. Sure, that sounds rough, that sounds terrible when the full implications of that reality are considered totally. What would you rather have though? Avoid it all, ignore it, and make it worse or face it now and make better forever and genuinely. If you read this far, you get my full meaning. After all the title is The Effort Of Life And Existence, right?
So, sometimes, I love to put things off as much as the next guy, only difference is that my genuine beliefs usually do not let me. For example, I had to do some carpet cleaning under and by my materials recycling bin the other day my Mother suggested I do when she was over at my apartment, and doing that was something I would love to put off. So, I took out the carpet cleaner and detergent sprayed on the carpet, did some scrubbing and vacuuming for an hour where the spots were. But, I understand the reality, I would not have a clean carpet if I put it off, and it would probably get worse. Sure, this is a basic example, but reality is reality for the most basic or complicated example is what it is and must be dealt with or worse later. I get it, and if you read intently and realistically, you get it.
Look, work and (Sometimes) the realities of needing to deal with things are not my favorite things. But, to grow and get better, we must. So, I end with the old thirtieth President of the United States Calvin Coolidge quote again, here, just to say the old “dirty” words: Persist until you make it, and do not slack off:
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
