The Pursuit Of Fairness

During one of my first group Bikram “hot” yoga classes I was serendipitously positioned near a male I saw at a party the previous night. By the time the yogini leading our morning class entered the studio he was already sweating profusely & appeared ready to tap out pre-workout!

To my surprise, he didn’t tap out. He fought through the early vinyasa and near the middle of the class I over heard him mutter something akin to, “Please God Help Me!” While completing a challenging pose that tempted him to surrender to the heat & fatigue. Nonetheless, he persevered & survived the hour long session.

After class, in the locker room — we acknowledged each other: Talked about the party the night before & he joked that he probably would have had less to drink if he knew the torture his girlfriend had signed him up for; guised as meditative exercise the following morning.

I laughed with him, before leaving to complete the second half of my workout. Mulling over what I heard him say during the workout.

This stood out to me for several reasons, yet the most pronounced was the fact that being able to beat the evolutionary odds & general unfairness of life by being in a yogi studio with his girlfriend detoxing an epic night, opposed to being something lesser like an Amoeba was already a win!

Hell, we were born winning.

You had a 1 in 400 trillion chance of being born human. It took a lil help to beat those odds!

“I’ve seen a lot of people in agony in the thirty plus years I’ve been alive — few more distraught than those who exist in a perpetual state of victimization.” — Donte’ A. Bundrent

Perspective is everything. No matter how hard one attempts to manifest “fairness.” The pursuit in & of itself is unfair.

That statement doesn’t excuse injustice. Instead, it recognizes that most talk of “the pursuit of fairness” is farcical.
