The choices we make decide our fate. Nothing more, nothing less.
If life were written, it would just boil down to one single word, Luck.
From then on, it gets only worse.
Belief in luck leads to belief in the supernatural, belief in the sins of our previous births, belief in an imposing puppeteer(Kondy yet again, needs no mention)
What starts as a mere belief in fate, eventually turns into one of your greatest fears, zilching the faith in oneself, creating a mental state which prevents you from doing anything as it hardly will make a difference.
God exists, but only in our hearts.
Man can't go through his hardships alone.
Imagine...Life without god; No one to call out to in your times of distress, no one to tell you that you're destined for a better tomorrow, no one to promise you that nothing can possibly go wrong anymore, and in all respects, no hope at all.
Necessity was indeed the mother of invention, and hence god stepped foot on earth.
In different cultures and environments, he sprung up in numerous ways.
The wise elders of the yesteryears figured out that belief is stronger when made perfectly transparent. Albeit they cooked up all kinds of fables, they had one thing in common...
Spread love, spread hope, spread these messages in the name of god.
For, man will survive a million years longer in the name of god.
Thus, hope drove man forward, the hope for a better tomorrow.
And life went on... God existed and still exists in our hearts.
But, the elders weren't wise enough to foresee what the advent of God/Hope has turned man into, a blood-thirsty monster, wanting for more each and every moment. In the name of Hope, the never dying urge to acquire more, achieve more and be better has taken over humanity. Man hoped for more and self satisfaction was a word of the past.
Thus, came the war, came the rich and the poor, came technology, nuclear warheads...
Thus, came fear.
Man's creations destroy/will destroy himself.
From positivity, sprang negativity. It has and it will always be.
After all,Buddha was right, he was indeed the enlightened one.
The only way to remain happy in this world is to not believe in anything at all, penance and detachment from everything worldly...
No God, No hope, No fear, and in short, No emotion.
