Everything Happens For a Reason.!..?
Disclaimer : This post is not meant to hurt anybody’s spiritual or emotional sentiments. This is just an attempt to find answers to my few unanswered questions.
They say,”Everything happens for a reason”. But, what troubles me, is the fact, Is it always for your good or is it just a hope which you(they) give to yourself(you) that some good is on its way ?!
Some people might say that you would not be able to see that ‘good’ when it would be happening (At that moment, you may not realize the hidden good) but you will always see that when you retrospect that past of yours. Some would say that bad things need to happen in this world to make you realize the worth of good things around you and it’s just a series of good and bad happenings which presents the perspective that ‘Everything happens for a reason’.
I agree with all school of thoughts but what perturb me are the questions which I am not able to answer myself. I am not able to see any good reason when I wake up in the morning and read in the newspaper that a gang of few odd men rapes a 5 year old and she dies after that (May be I am blind as I can’t see the ‘good‘ reason behind that).
I am not able to convince myself about this ideology when I see wrong things happening all around me (It’s not that World should be an ideal place but I am searching for reasons which non-ideal or wrong happenings can bring into our lives). What good reason can lie behind when someone loses his/her loved ones in an accident ? How good can it be for a mother who keeps a baby inside her womb for 9 months and the baby takes birth as stillborn.? What good reason can a parent (who is already below poverty line) give to his/her child when they themselves make him/her beg for his living? What reason can we give to that girl’s family who died while battling with her life after being raped brutally? Will we ever be able to give a good reason to them if it’s true that ‘Everything happens for a reason’ ?
To some, I might sound a pessimist and some of you might think that I am dreaming of an ideal world but the practicality of the thought is that I am just trying to find answer to my original question , “Does really everything happen for a reason or it’s just a hope of something good?!”.
