Life is a huge gamble. Choices made daily affect the choices of tomorrow which in turn steer you on a meandering path to death. No-one knows whether any of the seemingly innocuous choices will affect your path adversely or positively. We are all navigating blind, with hairpins and dark corners the consequence of any ill considered decision. With this in mind, can anyone be truly happy? or is life just a meaningless compromise. A trade off between simplicity and the spiritual wealth of pure joy.
