Everything is raw material

On choosing what to make from the materials we’ve been given

The universe is a random number generator.

Nothing in life happens for a reason.

Everything is raw material. 

The question life poses is simple:

What will you make of this?

A great life is born of alchemy. A life that is capable of transforming any experience, any material into something fruitful.

A tragic life is born of victimhood. A life that is defeated by experience and doesn’t grasp our agency in choosing what to make of the materials we’ve been given.
