Sorry but I do not accept that life is scripted. Randomness does exist and some things happen by chance.
Yes, absolutely. I don’t like the concept of “… is meant to happen”. Why is it “meant” to happen? Meant by what or whom? Things happen. That’s all. It’s our mind that invests what’s happening with meaning.

Let us agree to disagree.
I agree with Shackman, but I also believe we can keep learning and growing and focus on being grateful.
“The secret of happiness is to ask yourself every day:
(1) What’s good about my life?
(2) What needs to be done?
(3) How can I get this done and enjoy the process?”
As you know, my motto is, “Stay curious and open to life. No matter what happens keep learning and growing. Find what you love to do and find a way to share it with others.”

I have no problems with your approach.
Your second tableau sounds good yet pronouncements like that make my hackles rise. Why? Because they are a luxury. I can think of whole swathes of the world whose people will have a hard time to focus on what’s good about their lives when not even the basics of human existence are covered for them. One might deduce that the “Universe” isn’t exactly generous, is it?

The problem arises in not accepting that all kinds of things exist in the world, but in putting a value of either good or bad to them. There has not been any scientific explanation yet for why misery exists other than the theory of karma. Solutions have been aplenty but no one has yet been able to tell us why those solutions have not been implemented.
I also disagree that nothing is a coincidence. If I happen to be thinking of someone, and immediately run into them in the street, how can that be anything but a coincidence? I don’t believe there is some cosmic agency prompting both the thought and the encounter simultaneously.

Fair enough. Let us agree to disagree.
I don’t believe in coincidences either (there’s no such thing). And you are right, our mission, sort of speak, is designed before we incarnate; but the path we choose to fulfil the mission (i.e. the process) that is up to us, that is Free Will.

We are birds of a feather then Max.
well you are aware, that all kinds of things happening for me now…
a lot would be of the unexpected kind a few years ago…
I love the antics of my Filipino neighbours – there are only Mother and 2 semi-adult sons but there lives are completely about-face on many sides. I just had the eldest lad, home early from work – not in his wagon (that’s still at work…some problem with getting his keys out which are inside) but with a mate. Somehow whatever is on the schedule at home, hasn’t filtered down to him “where is Mum?” Mum apparently should be home…nevermind there are absolutely no cars here!
qujite interesting I should know where Mum is – not the other son of course…so he has now left the property to walk down to work to get the house keys as his spare keys are inside house. Maybe it is time for a spare set outdoors…
I can just see Isobel’s face when this dirty lad comes into her aisle…he’s got his builders work clothes on, boots and all…
People come into your path for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do with that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a dificulty…
To provide you with guidance and support…
To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually…
They may seem like they are a godsend, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die…
Sometimes they walk away…
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand….
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled…
Their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has now been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON.
Because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons.
Things you must build upon to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life…
Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime
