We may never figure out the reason Why something happens, but that does not mean that there is no reason.
People and Society often have a need to explain away, discount, or deny bad, unexplainable, and undesirable things that either exist or that happen to people. If you choose to attack the significance of your existence, by saying that your life is random and meaningless, then you will have missed a wonderful opportunity in life. If, on the other hand, you discover the reason and purpose that you are alive, it will bring you peace and joy.
People will often avoid truth, denying that it exists. Others will go looking for the truth until they discover it. It is in the pursuit of truth, that the enlightenment comes. Do not wait until it is too late to look for the truth!
Along the way, you will find many false things masquerading as the truth, but do not let them deceive you. Keep on searching for the truth, until you find it, and begin to live it. Life is about who and what we believe. There are many voices trying to get us to believe in what they are saying. You must discern truth from error. Be careful who and what you decide to believe, and to serve, for they will certainly become your master.
Your time, talents, and money will follow whomever and whatever you believe. At the end of your life, what fruit will you have to show for all of your labor? Would it not make sense to maximize your life's harvest? There is a reason you were born during this time. You must seek to discover your true purpose and destiny.
You need to stop blaming others for your circumstances, and choose to seek truth and wisdom daily, so that you will have them in your time of need. You must take responsibility for your own actions, not shift blame.
Life will throw obstacles and challenges your way. You must learn to be the person who overcomes them and is victorious. Much like a runner running a marathon race, you must treat others well and finish the race well.For helpful information on how to run life's race properly and finish well, please read my various writings.
