A couple of years ago after getting in a car accident, I wrote about one of the big questions in life asking “Does Everything Happen For A Reason?” Once again I am thinking about that question in order to understand some of the disappointments that I have encountered lately. Is life random or is there a purpose to the things that occur? Don’t get me wrong; I have a good life. I have a roof over my head, food on the table and people who love me and who I love back. I just have some dreams that I am trying to make come true, yet I am faced with obstacles and rejections time and time again. I know that in the book The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav, he stated that we are powerful spirits that have come to earth to learn. Most days, I believe this quote but understanding why things happen or in my case don’t happen is difficult to grasp. I struggle to understand what I need to learn from them. I get lost in my thoughts and in my ego instead of trusting the universe and reflecting on what these situations can teach me. As I write these words, I am reminded of how often I am grateful later that many of the things I prayed for did not come true. I am also reminded that my soul can speak to me and help me to process the loss and disappointments if I would only quiet my mind and listen.
