There are two philosophies in my family: one which agrees with the idea that “everything happens for a reason”, that there is an explanation behind each event and situation, no matter how insignificant…and another …which believes that everything happens by accident and the laws of classical logic do not apply to the universe or to life.
I couldn’t possibly accept the fact that we are accidents. That there are no connections and no metaphors . That God is not teaching us lessons. That everything is a coincidence. That each of us is not an equally important jigsaw to complete the larger puzzle called life. That our roles are monological and not dialogical. That people do not get what they deserve. That we are mere chances lacking inspiration. That life has no meaning.
