Sometimes i read things and they move me not just to change or to talk or to think but to write. This happens sometimes with reading blogs but i tend to not do it because i don't want to have anyone feeling like I'm copycatting their intellectual property in anyway. Yet the other day i started musing the question: 'Does everything happen for a reason?' Inspired by this post
Yes, i would say everything happens for a reason. Most people are of the opinion that life is unfair right? So, i think what is important to note is that while it has been said that 'everything happens for a reason' who ever said it was a good or fair reason?
It is not a matter of whether the person who gets the job in a company that soon goes bankrupt over when you when you both were interviewed but you were passed over 'deserved' to be unemployed soon after, it is just that the company went out of business SO s/he had no work. There was an angry sick person who took a gun into a school where children were and started to fire AS a result they died...To every action, there is a reaction.
You know what I think? I think as human beings we could sit and pull reasons out the wazoo all day and all night but reasons, much like excuses, are not all nor always good or agreeable. We have to make sure we are looking for a reason, not 'a reason i'll like' when we're looking for answers because somehow, i suspect the world doesn't work like that...
It's so easy to not see the big picture in life when a huge bolder gets dropped in front of us....
If we looked to the side maybe we could see that sometimes things are just the end of ONE road, the soil of many paths are still untrodden, the grass there is still green, there is not one destination, but many. As a wise local idiom says 'What is for you? is for you' meaning If it's yours, you'll get it, regardless of bolder, moat or loss.
Well, except for stagnancy i believe, that's the one, sure fire way to end it all. That is, putting up a manual road block to ALL possible roads simultaneously, sitting still and refusing to move?! Game Over. Didn't you know that you can voluntarily be your own end all be all?\ Sucks don't it?
How do you feel about the topic Lovely Serendipity discussed? Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
