Hmmm, have you checked out the 'Your Personal Philosophy' thread for some ideas. Luck (good luck) is really about being prepared to take advantage of chance. From your statements I assume that you're still fairly young - it's never too late to take a new direction (my mom went back to school and earned her Ph.D. in Psychology at about the age of 60).

Listen very closely to those who tell you that something can't be done. Ask as many questions of them as you can to get pertinent answers and knowledge about their failure and why they think it can't be done. Then go out and do it.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

(my mom went back to school and earned her Ph.D. in Psychology at about the age of 60).

That is outstanding! Not to upstage her or anything, but I just learned to make toast in my 4th decade.

Think about yourself- you?re one of billions of human beings on a planet that is orbiting a huge star, which itself is one of billions in this galaxy, which is also one of billions?.and on and on and on. Or think about the fact that you body is actually a complex organization of cells, almost like a huge ant colony, which are working together harmoniously, the end result of which is you. And they, in turn, or made of patterns of molecules, and on, and on. For me taking a ?big picture? perspective can sometimes put me in a spiritual mood.

?how i can change my luck

You might start by examining what it is that is important to you. What do you really value in life? If everything goes well, you?ll live about 75-80 years- what do you want to do between now and then? When you look back on your life before you die, what do you want to have achieved? What do you want to change about yourself?- we all have some things we want to change. How do you want to be perceived by others?- you can change this too. And then ask yourself, what about your life right now is preventing you from reaching these goals?

?and maybe be more spiritual?

Ask yourself a few clarifying questions:

Do you believe in God?
What is God to you?
Do you believe in an afterlife?
How do you think people should act? Who or what determines this?
Think about ?things? in the world. Do you think they exist outside of us, or are they all in our mind (whoa!). Are you the only thing that exists at all?!
What does shrooming mean to you? Many feel that this can be a spiritual experience.

And this site is kind of fun.

religious beliefs questionnaire

It helps you figure out what religion your beliefs are closest too. There is also a lot of info on the different religions. Good luck!

I would recommend meditation. I have just finished a battle with cancer and meditation helped me very much. Reading is also very helpful.

I find the key to being spiritual is to always, ALWAYS, take a step back and just think. Ask yourself questions "how am I doing What am I feeling What do I want? What does this mean, what does that mean?"
Question everything you do, from conversations you have to books you read to fun you have, then be in touch with the answers. That is how I develop spiritually.

Good Luck.

Pray. Never mind to Whom at this point - there is only One. Later, when your Heart has become a Doorway, ask, and you will receive His Name.

Uh... "the Lord's" proper (and full) name is the Lord Confusion... anything else is idolatry.
