Just wondering why it is that even if we claim we believe that “Everything happens for a reason” when it comes down to it, if a “positive” outcome results from “negative” events, we whole-heartedly expound this concept, but when “negative” outcome results, we lament the whole system of cause and effect.
Is this maya? What makes us forget that there is an invisible hand spinning this entire material construct into motion? We forget that it is the same hand at all times, no matter what the outcome. Do our human minds only allow us to catch a glimpse of this eternal truth occasionally? What causes us to lose this vision? For that matter, how to we glimpse it to begin with?
Just some random thoughts. More rhetorical questions.
