Is life really hard ?

Popularity 9Viewed 7085 times 2013-8-3 05:43 |System category:Life| really

Life is not hard as we would think or imagine. All depends our our own illusions and delusions.
All is just in our minds.
Life is not hard as many picture them self to be. Hard it becomes when you have illusions and dreams that takes your focus away from life its self.
For me life is to share view´s and ide´s with people enjoy life as it is. Not to create a mental prison off wants and demands.
Just finished watching a documentary about a artist from Detroit USA who never made it in the 1970:ths. More becuase of his last name Rodriiguez who came from a Mexican immigrant family.
Listening to the lyrics he could have been better then Bob Dylan if he had the right backing and different name in those days.  Meaning change the name like Zimmerman to make it as Dylan.
I found Rodrigeuz more modest and more balanced a man in harmony with him self.
He never made it in USA but thru copies made in South Africa during the Apartheid he became more popular then Elvis. Even censored for his lyrics by the regime then. His first concert was done in Capetown 1998. Sold out, But still he was modest , returned to Detroit going on with what he has done before doing manual labor.
 
Searching for Sugar Man
is a documentary film directed by Malik Bendjelloul, which details the efforts of two Cape Town fans in the late 1990s, Stephen 'Sugar' Segerman and Craig Bartholomew Strydom, to find out whether the rumoured death of American musician Sixto Rodriguez was true, and, if not, to discover what had become of him. Rodriguez's music, which never took off in the United States, had become wildly popular in South Africa, but little was known about him there.

Life is really hard for everyone. Life consists of different experiences happy life, tough life, bitter life, funny life and so on. Hard life is part of it. The most important point is  how we face hard life and  what attitude we should take.
