This post will make a rather strong assumption and may cause some controversy.
Humans are Life.
What is LIFE? Really? And what does knowing what it is have to do with self-development and coming closer to the person you want to be?
Life is organization. It is proactive. It is energy. It is bright. It spreads and is beneficial. It is fast paced and always working and renewing. Your soul imagined your physical body into existence. Thanking yourself every day for the chance at life is important and sends good messages to your mind. In fact, thinking is a powerful tool, in general, that should be used liberally.
It is my belief that everything that does not follow the traits of life is, in fact, death under a mask. All the things we do as humans eventually flows like a river to one of two oceans, the ocean of life, or the ocean of death. Today, I dare not speak of the opposites of life, but you as the reader can imagine them yourselves.
What we CAN do is tip the scale. We can never truly be organized all the time, but we can choose and try to be focused on organization, or be focused on feeling good. Some people rely on outside sources for pleasure or pain. Take for example legions of sports fans who live or die based on their team's performance. I know there are people that can make something good out of even the worst teams, but the majority of people are simply tied to the fate of something else other than themselves.
You are the only person that can choose to actively pursue life. You do it every day. You eat, you drink, you sleep. But these are just the beginning. Imagine everything else you are missing out on.
Writing this post reminds me of a lyric that has made me think quite a bit of time, one that I don't even know is right, but it is how I hear it:
"Things just stay the same as they've always been, some of us are out to win and some of us are out to just to wane."
Just tipping the scales in the favor of life can make a dramatic difference, even if it is a 51% - 49% favor. Just do it. Now that you know, you can choose what to go after.
Book Title: Going Postal
Author: Terry Pratchett
Editing of article: Assignment writing service
Moist von Lipwig is a “people skills” person (conman). He suffers the indignity of being hung – the hangman is skilful, and he is only hung to the extent required by Lord Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh- Morpork. Vetinari requires someone resourceful and, more importantly, expendable, as the new postmaster for the Post Office.
The Ankh-Morpork Post Office has fallen on hard times. Undelivered mail forms drift ten feet deep, preserved by a crust of pigeon guano. The last four postmasters have met horrible deaths. There are only two members left on the staff. Technology has overtaken them, and everyone is using the Clacks (semaphore). Moist’s mission, and he has no choice but to accept it, is to revive the Post Office.
The Clacks was started by a lot of techno-freaks with no head for finance. It has been taken over by corporate raiders, led by the most piratical raider of them all. Equipment is being run down. High finance is taking place. Vetinari feels that they need to be put in their place. He has hopes that Moist will do it.
It took me quite a while to get involved. I was enjoying the satiric portraits and absurdities, but not engaged. It was not until Moist began to work for the Post Office and the people, and not just to get himself out in one piece, that I began to care about the story. The romantic subplot (not usually one of Pratchett’s strengths) kicks in as well, and things are moving very well when you realise there are only 50 pages to go. The resolution seems sudden, but not too forced.
Pratchett’s strength is the Discworld, and the satiric resonances with our own society. Many of the incidental characters have long histories, which allows him to present them, even briefly, as developed characters. Ankh-Morpork is a living, breathing city. What we get in this novel (as in the others) is a natural extension of the history of Ankh-Morpork and the Discworld.
In this structure, there are two main risks: you don’t care about the characters, and the plot can get lost in presenting the society. Pratchett’s books are prone to both (except when the characters are overwhelming, such as the witches of Lancre). Here, I think it is the reason it took me so long to really care about what was happening in the novel..
Pratchett may be catalogued as a fantasy writer, but he is really part of the English comedy tradition - the Goons, Monty Python, The Hitch-Hikers Guide. If you have enjoyed those, you will probably enjoy Going Postal. Like all great comedians, he is dealing with deep philosophical and social issues – twisting the logic to give us pleasure.
