Choosing Optimism....or WHAT ??

Is HOPE a choice ?
Can we REALLY determine our destiny by having a "positive outlook" ?
or...
is that just a posthumous and corny myth?
there to assuage the reality...
And what of Situational Melodrama ?
What about things OUT OF OUR CONTROL ?
Is EVERYTHING really within our purview ?
Can INTENTION and DESIRE play that big of a role in the OUTCOME of things ?
It seems to be a continuous quagmire of PUZZLEMENT....
of DEBATE...of ANGST...
Are there answers to this age old dilemma ?
In many regards, I suppose that this is PRECISELY what RELIGION is there for...
To answer the questions of destiny, karma, etc...
with one simple word....one simple concept.....
FAITH...
pure and simple....
Blind and all encompassing FAITH...
For in the end of the day...
in the VERY END...
when we feel deflated and alone...
when the future has no shape or color...
FAITH MUST be our LIFE PRESERVER....
our BUOY...
amidst piles and piles of FLOATING DOUBT....
FAITH, my loves....
