There are many ways to deal with the Universe, with reality, and most of them are ineffective.
The more effectively you “deal” with reality, the more you get out of your life.
Billionaires Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger, Bill Gates, read books on physics, the ice ages, and the shorelines of our planet… and I see how it helps them in dealing with reality. this is what this article is about.
The Anna Karenina Principle applies here. That is what a principle is: it applies everywhere.
A principle is a pattern. Big pattern, small pattern, it IS a pattern. ((If you don’t know what a pattern is, what a fractal is, please look it up. This article AND life won’t make a lot of sense… and if you really look, it hasn’t made sense to you, has it?
The reason I am looking at billionaires is because billionaires are rare enough to represent the people who are able to make sense of the world, through patterns and fractals.
I don’t mean to sound haughty… but unless you start learning about the world, about reality, unless you come out of your mind where you have Tree of Knowledge… none of it yours, life will not start to make sense, and you’ll never understand why things are the way they are, why your actions are fruitless, and why you don’t manage to get from A to B.
Don’t say I haven’t warned you.))
“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” By that, Tolstoy meant that for a marriage to be happy, it had to succeed in several key aspects.

One of my students suggested that the linchpin capacity that humanity isn’t exercising is allowing. The 12-step programs say: Let go – Let god…
I have been pondering this ever since I got the email with the suggestion. At first I didn’t see the beauty of it, but it is growing on me.
Yeah, if you could let life be life, the Universe be the Universe, spring be spring, the weather be the weather, if you stopped fighting it, trying to fix it, tame it, control it, then you would be able to fall into a rhythm, a harmony, a flow.
