Wants are conditioned driven, it matters little to life or the Universe whether they’re fulfilled or not. You can make up a story that it matters, but that’s your story not life’s.
You can want things a certain way, but to life this doesn’t really matter much. Life isn’t a respecter of wants, it will allow things for its betterment at times and if you are one of the instruments which are being used in this capacity, you are truly blessed because you are probably assisting others in a unique way. This doesn’t make you special, but it does allow you to be free of the self centered “I” that holds most of the world in captivity. Wants are conditioned driven, it matters little to life or the Universe whether they’re fulfilled or not. You can make up a story that it matters, but that’s your story not life’s. Fulfill every want in your life and at the end of it you will have exactly what you would’ve had had no want been fulfilled.
It always makes me chuckle when I’m watching a baseball game and a player hits a home run followed by pointing upward, as if something is watching and cares more about the person hitting the home run as opposed to the pitcher giving it up. What happens when the person strikes out, which is inevitable? I’m waiting for the day when a person who strikes out points downward. All these stories mean nothing to the Universe and also the prayers said, regardless if they seem to work out or not, are just stories. Who’s suppose to answer them anyway, God? Good luck with that. Things will always work out the way they work out until it’s realized the Universe (life) doesn’t really care if they do or don’t. Wants are only held onto because one thinks they’re needed, but because life isn’t a respecter of wants, suffering prevails because that’s what you, not life has in place.
