PETRI DISH

Often hear "everything happens for a reason" The older I get then more I lean towards dropping the second half of that sentence "everything happens."


The more I experience, the more I get the sense of the vastness of existence and the more it makes sense to me that the "great plan" is more like an unimaginably complex petri dish.

Everything is in motion and everything will eventually happen.

I have moved away from the idea that my life has some great plan and I honestly think that chance has a lot to do with life and our attitude to that chance shapes our lives far more than some divine plan.

Could it perhaps be ego that encourages us to think that we, as individuals, warrant a specific fate?

There are so many of us (and who knows how many other consciousnesses out there) that I keep coming back to "everything happens" and I have a wonderful opportunity to enjoy my part of everything.

  1. Yup. Everything happening for a reason implies that there is destiny. I don't believe in destiny, though. I believe that everything happens as a result of our action. That our lives are still going to be written by us and us only.

  2. I so AGREE. =)

    Everything happens, and we human beings put a reason behind everything.

  3. Everything happens for a reason. But we i think we must also keep fate in check. By living our lives now. Not in the past, nor for the future, but now.

  4. the optimistic side of us tells that everything happens for a reason and if we ponder hard and can't think enough reason why it happened, we just stop and say, oh well, that's life.

  9. Humans, putting themselves on a pedestal again. - this is my opinion. We can easily accept that we are being toyed upon by chance but we think that everything happens for a reason.

  10. What if those "chances" that shape your life are just a part of the divine plan? I really believe that everything that happens to us has already been written...

  13. I believe in determinism theory. I suppose, that's what you believe now. Life is not all by chances.
