What is luck?

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

I found this little essay about luck, and since today is our last day of the Lady Luck project, I thought I would share some thoughts about luck.. and what it might mean.

Luck can mean fortune, force that operates for good or ill, advantage or an object of good fortune. .

What is good luck?Is it chance? Is it something we are born with? Is it good planning? Maybe it is a little bit of all these things. Is it something we can control?

Fortune is definitely good luck.The word fortune brings to mind financial success. Having enough money is certainly lucky. Again, money is something we can be born with or we can accumulate it by work and planning.

Force that operates for good or ill, please, make it only good. There are many forces and vibrations flowing about us all the time. Putting quartz crystal points in the home helps make the life force much more good luck friendly. An aventurine gemstone in the left pocket makes the chance of getting more money better odds. So, we can influence the forces to be kinder to us.

Having advantages in as many areas of life as possible is a very good thing. Being born with beauty is an advantage, but learning to cultivate charm and wit is a greater advantage. Being born with money is an advantage, but arranging to get a good education and keep learning all your life is even a better advantage.

I want to be the object of good fortune. I want to have many objects of good fortune. Is being the object of good fortune and having objects of good fortune the same thing? There is a connection. First I have the intent to have good fortune. Intent is a strong word. It is living my life with a great deal of attentiveness and purpose. I must intend to have luck. Every day I must design to have good luck. This intent helps bring the friendly life forces to flow around me. I keep several objects and symbols of good luck in my home, my car and often in my pocket. I have a little pig on my nightstand by the clock. This pig was given to me to remind me to have a new idea each day of how I can make my life better. The pig is the first thing I see when I wake. That little pig is a symbol of good luck to me.

Now, what is luck? It is paying attention. Luck is planning. Luck is chance. Good luck is influenced by our paying attention to everything around us, so we are able to take advantage of any opportunity that can make us a better life. Good luck is influenced by planning not just for today but for the years to come, such as saving some money every week. There is always an element of chance in life, but this only makes life more exciting. Good luck in influenced by intent and having objects of good luck around us to remind us all the time of the intent.

I was thinking that I just wanted to push the button and get some luck.. but then I realized that I am actually pretty lucky already.

Not lucky in the lottery, maybe, but I do tend to loose track of the fact that I make $300 less a month than my bills and expenses.. and yet, I have water, electricity, a reliable car, and a home in the country on 6 beautiful acres. No one in my immediate family is ill, my pets are healthy, and I am not in a bad marriage. I live in a country that is actually pretty safe compared to say for example... Africa, Iraq, or Haiti. I am healthy, I have friends and family.

Yes, my life could be better, my financial situation is pretty scary, but compared to millions of people in our world today, I am pretty darn lucky!
