No Leaf Clover

And it feels right this time
On this crash course we're in the big time
Pay no mind to the distant thunder
Beauty fills his head with wonder, boy...

Says it feels right this time
Turn around, found new high lights
Good day to be alive Sir
Good day to be alive, he said...

Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just a freight train coming your way...

Don't it feel right like this
All the pieces fall to his wish
Suck up for that quick reward boy
Suck up for that quick reward they said...

Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just a freight train coming your way......


Quote: I was reaching my goal, guess it was just bad luck!

'No leaf clover' comes from the 'four leaf clover' with all the leaves plucked out... four leafs being LOVE FAITH HOPE and LUCK

The 'four leaf clover' is actually the unusual variation of the usual 'three leaf clover'. The four leaf clover if found accidently is believed to get good luck. (luck symbolizing the fourth leaf)

Keep your ears and mind open.. You're dead the day you stop learning and dead men have no luck...

There is a balance in this world...
When somethings going too well... something somewhere is.... uhuh!...
And when things are not going well you're overlooking something...

That brings us to the balance theory in ancient hindu scripts called Karma or the cycle of cause and effect.

The end of that cycle is Nirvana or Moksha in Hindu Jain and Buddhist beliefs.
Moksha is freedom from irrational perception according to jain and Buddhist beliefs.

LOVE is the act of selflessness and ego is the attribute of irrationality

FAITH is a sense of joy deriving from an idea... Joy with no ego leads to Moksha and doubt leads to Karma

HOPE accompanies and brings relief to everything. In Greek mythology when Pandora opened the Pandora's Box she released all the worlds evil except one, Hope. Without hope to accompany their troubles humanity was in great despair. Relief only came after Pandora's revisit to the box and release of hope. 
Even thou considered an evil, Hope brings us to Faith, Faith to Love and love to Moksha. And that is what all Messiahs preach.

So what is LUCK? A miracle?
After-all it is the unusual fourth leaf in the usual 'three leaf clover'.

I guess luck would be better off as an embodiment of love faith & hope together at once, if the phenomenon of the ‘four leaf clover’ is to be believed, that’s when being optimistic comes into the picture. Though, I do not firmly consider that positive thinking is the breeder of all the luck.

In any case, congo on your 1st post! Its reaaallly neat...
Happy blogging!

Thank you so much!

Well I guess you're destined to your karma and thats best for you. Luck comes to you anyway. You know the fourth leaf wasn't supposed to be there. Its not really your choice... But without any of the three leafs there is no fourth leaf so yes it is an embodiment of love faith and hope.
I do not say 'positive thinking' is the breeder to luck. I did mention hope as an negative attribute. The point of no leaf clover is figuring out the balance of the positive and negative. the 'balance' is Moksha. Hope, faith, and love are your gateway to freedom from irrational perception or ego.

"Hope, faith, and love are your gateway to freedom from irrational perception or ego"

Irrationality is not dependent on hope, faith or love, it is a matter of choice. Perception is a state of mind you choose to be in. The trust in the power of hope, faith and love often leads to irrational behaviour and/or perception... As you have rightly described hope as a negative attribute.

As the black lady in china wld say... "I donno what you saying!"
Irrationality could come from anywhere but is dependent on ego... the 3 leafs help you away from ego and so irrationality. Perception is not state of mind but comes from it. Rational perception is simply not sticking firm to 'your' idea. 'Learning'
I understand your point but i don't think of perception as an adjective but a verb.
