Talk to any climber, who's any good, luck is the reason they're alive...

Some fantasy about everything happening for a reasons, is just level with a grade school girls- mentality.... musing- about her dead fish floating in her fish tank.

Human's aye, are destroying the Earth at a rapid pace, and thinking that a higher power has control over everyones fate; well, frankly and shirly, is just brain dead and insulting to the many greats who have perished.

One person's luck is another persons karma. Fact is, in a mechanistic universe, I think soloists and city drivers would be dying in much much higher numbers. Even myself, I've had more than 9 lives and countless close call stories. \

The higher power is within us, a part of us, not an external force or "Other"

Even perishing climbing isn't the worst thing for us (hard for loved ones) We go on.

I'll say this: If you are bummed over life and suspect there might be an unconscious part of you that's tempted to bow out, don't do dangerous stuff. The will to live is a huge force in creating "luck."

Peace

Karl
