I do believe that things happen for a reason.
I do not believe that we are meant to know or understand the purpose of these incidents as they happen. It can often be difficult trying to figure out why tragedy occurs or why a selfish egomaniac wins the lottery. Faith means knowing that there is a bigger plan, more than our eyes can see and our mind can gather.
I have exhausted asking “why”; instead, I now try to continue rolling with life’s waves and keep my eye on that light on the horizon that shines for all of us. It’s always a choice as to whether you reach for the hopeful light or turn your back into the futile darkness.
It’s not easy, but we mustn’t dote on the hurt and feed it with venom and hatred. In meditation we can find the spirit and learn to let what unfolds just be.
