I am interested in understanding and learning about a certain human phenomena: the phenomena of why some people seem cursed meaning; no matter what they try nothing works for them and others who do not even try things seemingly fall into place, as if they were chosen or picked for their human role. I am not talking about good and bad luck per se but a dimension of being that goes deeper and is rooted in our cosmic origins. For instance does anyone have an idea on why Obama was born when he was, and why he was picked for president, or Washington , Lincoln etc for that matter. It seems to me that things of this world are not happening at random or based on hard work but based on a supernatural or mathematical law in which humans are the subjects and yet have not become aware of their station. Its as if we all are living dummies being moved around a earthly chess board liken to the Greek mythology when the Gods would do exactly what I am describing to their human creatures on earth?
Can anyone recommend a book or writer who explores this in a very thoughtful and examined way.
PS: could humans be giving up their God nature or in an awaken sleep that holds them in this state of misery? Or is a greater force holding them in this state of misery? Or are they simply ploys of the cosmic order?
