I've come to a conclusion that life will align itself for you, if you excercise inner and outer effort (for some things inner, for some things outer, for some both) and get out of your own and life's way when needed (excercise intuition, logic and/or other way od judgment depending on your personality).

It seems it aligns to what you want, sometimes something else that you may not like in the moment but in the end it is getting you something you like. Some people like/want pain without realising it, so lifes give them that. It seems that lifes aligns itself around to according to what you want and what you believe in (are programmed to). ¨

I like to believe there is some higher principle than that, but I am not sure to say. But I do think so.

What do you think ?

He speaks a lot of sense, listened to this video and for a while to another, I'm going to definitely listen to more. It seems my views match his.

I don't go to church or anything. But became sympathetic to religion a few years (part of the reason i chose to study classics). But am now very sympathetic to the Aristotelian proofs of god. E.g https://youtu.be/BAIHs5TJRqQ and I'm sympathetic to natural law theory as developed within the Catholic church and to a large extent based on Aristotelian philosophy (a large percentage of Aristotelian philosophers are Catholic). My mum was a Catholic and my dad an atheist and i was atheist since before 10.

Man and Woman

" ... For example, von Hildebrand makes the point, as I was to do later, that amorality in sex is worse than immorality. One who sins out of weakness may still be conscious of the beauty and majesty of conjugal relations, and he has the opportunity for repentance, while the amoral, “scientific” man who “doesn’t see what the big deal is” about chastity is cut off from an important dimension of human reality. ...


...Von Hildebrand emphasizes that we should not see love as an appetite, as an extension of self-love, or as a means to happiness. Rather, he understands love to be the supreme response to the objective value of another person. Unlike other value responses, such as admiration, love responds to the overall beauty of the beloved, to her value as a unique person, rather than to one of the beloved’s isolated qualities. ..."
