Is Life something you go through, or something that happens to you?

you go through lol 

 

it would be too egocentric to say it's something that happens to you, right? 

 

but the writers of lost may have a different opinion ;) lol

I'd argue that both perspectives are equally a reflection of the ego, but what has you say that having things happen to you is more egoist to you than believing yourself the flagship towards your own destiny? 

In a way, is your life your ship, or the storm it's wading through?

Both at the same time

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue; I'll drown myself in a river, Because I'm drowning you too.

What makes them of equal weight though? 

I see life as something that happens to us. Determinism can explain every action we've done through a causal chain of events, rendering choice an illusion to the point of even our own decisions being yet another thing that's more happening to us than a conscious choice. 

I see people as a figurative VR headset witness of their own lives. It's easy to assume the choices as an audience member were our own, but we see quite often how it's not the case and don't want to accept it.

 I believe in natural balance and law of attraction.
