“The Case Against Hope”
by Buddha of Hollywood

“I was trying to define “worry” and “hope” and it occurred to me that they are brother and sister emotions. Both “worry” and “hope” are unfounded expectations; one that things will get worse and the other that things will get better– some how. And both “worry” and “hope” have the same hypnotic power to paralyze action.

I remember growing up under the communist rule. Life was really hard; things were pretty bad and getting worse every day. It can’t get worse than this, people were saying, it is bound to get better. But things never got better. Not by themselves. The revolution happened only when there was no more hope left, when all worries and hopes melted into one unstoppable rage. Action only happens when your worries turn into desperation- or your hopes change to enthusiasm. Only when you get tired of doing nothing and waiting for things to change will you leave worry and hope behind and start acting.

This is the fundamental “law” of things. There is no cause without effect and no effect without cause. If you are not in control of your life somebody else is. If you are not an “actor” in the “play” of life then you are a “spectator.”
