For example, there are some people born into highly-conscious, loving, encouraging families--and there are others born into families of alchoholics, workaholics, etc. Naturally, those born into encouraging families would have a better home base and a better starting point on which to build their lives. They would be able to become conscious and happier individuals easier--because of all the support they have from childhood. Those born into more termulous homes would have to struggle much harder to find that inner peace/consciousness that their early negative environment destroyed.
Does this seem a bit twisted to anyone else?
There's no god, run for the hills.
But truth be told, I've seen some unlucky lucky people. A few people I know have always been called lucky, but are emotional wrecks. What they have in money they lack in real friendship or mental stability. Seen it so many times. Although, I have read about the Author of "7 effective habits" and his family seems pretty sweet. That's a pretty ideal family.
Well, despite this, I believe fairness is not a concept congruent with reality. Life's unfair. I also have a hard time believing that someone WOULD think that life is fair or we're given equal circumstances
