A REVELATION!–Is the fault really in ourselves and not our stars?–


okay, so let me give a brief introduction to where i’m headed with this post. I am currently viciously speed reading “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” by John Green because i have to return it to my friend who is leaving soon

…It’s 2:30 a.m.  and i am currently 223 pages into the book, so far so good… but then, I stumble upon this one line that starts a chain reaction of philosophical thoughts that just completely change everything…

basically in the beginning-ish of the book some douche-bag writes to our cancer-stricken hero and tries to comfort him about his unfortunate situation(*the situation being that he is a cancer SURVIVOR-GUS- in love with a cancer PATIENT~HAZEL~ who is dying) the douche-bag writes to our hero “…were she better or you sicker, then the stars would not be so terribly crossed…” then he quotes Shakespeare, “The fault, dear brutus, is not in our stars, but in our selves..”.

I was like ok, i can deal with that. But then on page 223 Hazel’s dad tells her that he believes that “…The universe wants to be noticed…” Those words were like a smack to the face and i thought… People are always talking about how life is a bitch!(*pardon my french)  but maybe the universe is acting out because it just wants to be noticed. Maybe when things go wrong it’s not our fault, maybe,just maybe it’s the fault in our stars? and not our personal stars but the stars that we all share, a.k.a. our universe. Sometimes we get so involved with our little lives until it’s all we are aware of (* you know it’s true*) and the universe, acting like a concerned parent dealing with ungrateful kids just wants to show us that There are bigger things out there then us…

Yup so that was my daily rant! Thanks for reading!
