Chain Reaction - 3

The other expression I remembered when I started thinking about this "Chain Reaction" was a old Japanese poem:

"Isogazuba Nurezaramajio Musashino-no, Atokara Hareru Musashino-no Ame".

It means "Oh poor traveler, he would not have been wet, if he did not hasten.  The rain is over after he is gone in Musashino (Old Name of Tokyo Area)."

We experience this kind of things a lot in our real lives.  This was why our lives could be full of "could have", "would have", and "should have".  It seems to be inevitable feeling that way as long as we live.

Also it appears that Chain Reaction is not a thing which a human beings like you and I can control over. Some times this fact drives us crazy.  It goes without saying that butterfly wings vibration in Amazon could cause tornadoes in Nevada, AZ.  Simple and small go ahead or refusal could cause major loss for your business.

There is a quite clear and relatively irresponsible but most effective solution to this Chain Reaction happening to your life and drives you crazy.

Do you want to know what it is?  "Leave it alone".  It is an Act of God.  You have no power to control.  If this thing happening to your life anyway and if you do not have any control over it.  It is simply waste of time and effort to even think about it.  It is far better to think and take actions over things which you can affect, change, and control over.

Hi Shaw .. thanks - there's always an opposite reaction .. or another way of doing things, or a different time ... a different way round. All our lives are linked together and our actions .. somehow - sometimes we act before we think ..

Dear Hilary,

Thank you for your thoughtful comment. Yes, everything has opposite reaction. It makes matters more complicated. At the same time it makes matters more enjoyable for the people who intend to enjoy them.

Thanks again!

Hello Shaw,

It is best to do things that you have control over and leave the other alone. God does know best. Let him lead where he will. It always works out better that way. Thank you for the post, very thought provoking.

Dan and Deanna,

Thank you for your comment. I totally agree with you. Even we feel bad things are happening, if stay put, later we will realize God is preparing something for us.

Thanks, again!

Hi Funami-san,

Thanks for your interesting posting.

"Chain reaction" reminds me a "butterfly effect" related to the work of Edward Lorenz,mathematician, meteorologist, and a pioneer of chaos theory.
He made a presentation at the 139th meeting of the "American Association for the Advancement of Science" in 1972, and the title was "Does the flap of a butterfly's wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?".

Many combination of small action sometimes cause an unexpected effect like basinsmiths or a tornado.

I hope that the connection with Internet makes a better effect.

Hello Katsuno-san,

Nice to see you here. Thank you for your comment. Yes, it is "butterfly effect" as a part of "Chaos Logic" of mathematics like appeared in the movie "Jurassic Park".

I do hope that internet connections will bring better effect. But it is true that it is bringing some effect which we used not to have.

Thanks again!
