Equation With Two Unknowns

linear function graph (Jim. belk)

A quid pro quo with the universe is a spiritual black hole. That's what Faust discovered. The idea that one can willfully stop the cosmos from yawning by yelling leads to a sore throat. It’s when the notion of the “reward” or remuneration for effort starts to run through one’s mind that alarms should go off. Just making efforts does not guarantee compensation. In fact, it demeans the effort whether it's the love of a parent or child or simply a thing. It's as if the equation were reversed. Reward is not necessarily directly proportional to effort albeit reward does require effort (usually). It’s a common mistake since sometimes huge outpourings are like a drug that comes in the wake of long periods of emptiness or isolation (such as a pandemic). In addition, answered prayers can be fatal for those poor souls who can never get enough.
