Everything in life happens for a reason?

“Life”………a simple 4 letter word..but its turns and twists are so that you cannot expect or predict what will be the next…This moment you are on the top of the world the very next moment you will be so down that you wont even have energy to lift up urself. There is nothing to feel low when anything bad happens because “Eveything in life has a beautiful ending.If its not beautiful then b sure that its not the ending but beginning of something better.” I read a discussion where a politican missed his flight which crashed in the Manglore, perhaps he can best believe in this statement. What do you think about it?

Yes, this is true, that is why the Gita always tells us that only our actions are our own, not the fruits thereof. We should only do our work honestly and with all sincerity and faith, if we start thinking about the results, we’ll end up nowhere coz neither can we foresee the future nor do we have the power to influence other’s actions.

We should do our part and leave the result on God but I am a person who always look for results, I cannot do anything without felling the end result. Thank you for sharing.

I'm a recovering pessimist so all this positive thinking , for at least for myself.I think life is full of highs and lows. All we can do is try to look forward.

Good for you sara! I was raised in a family with two pessimists. I refuse to live that way. I could just never see how they could embrace the future and prepare for it when they spent all that energy being negative and looking back. I took charge of my life and became a success despite their votes that I would be nothing. I left them in the dust much to their dismay. So when their going got tough who did they turn too? Ya I helped them find their way.

Life Isn't Pre-Programmed Like That Of A Computer Program. Life Has Consequences To Choices That One Make - Good or Bad. Though I Must Say Not All Our Good Choices Result To Ideal Consequences, But That Is To Prove The Point That Life Isn't Pre-Programmed. We All Have Responsibilities As Well As Accountabilities In Life. We Are Directly Accounted For It Based On The Results It Bring, As Much As We Are Accounted For The Motivations We Had When We Made Those Choices. We Are Not Accountable Only To Ourselves Or Other People - These Can Be Very Biased At Times. The Ultimate Judge For Everything Is God Himself. (well... I know the subject of God is another thing for most people. that rightfully belongs to another discussion i guess :D)

God is the ultimate judge for everything but we should do things as per our believe which should be good most of the time . Thank You for sharing.

Maybe everything in life happens for a reason, but the thing is we can't prove that statement always. Now not everyone is born with a beautiful beginning or ending. Though we can always manipulate our thoughts to think that everything happens for a reason. If we are good, we would be bless we a better life when we reincarate, or go to heaven. I hope everything happens for a reason, but sometimes I doubt that statement.

That simply means "Life" is important. So what should we do? We must use it with sense not only for our selves but also for others good. God gives life to us human with purpose to do His holy will. Most people ruined their life because of lack of knowledge and wisdom from God that is why we are easily gone into temptations that brought us to sin, some of us really don't know that after our life here in this world there is another new life awaits us and it's beyond our choice of living, if you want to do bad or to do good the choice is yours.

Mmmmmmmm i think everything have a reason to happens in life. After thinking and thinking when something happens, ALWAYS is an answer for it. But never give up or go the wrong way. When something easy and nice happens, we are happy. When something hard and difficult happens, we gonna be crazy. But we as a human have to be hard to go. LIFE is still going on!!!

Hi ajay, we may not fathom at time the reason why things has to happen but I believe that it has to happen for a purpose and a reason. We just have to be positive with the way things are. At times we may not see things positively if we focused on the negative things. When a door closes, a window opens, I know other would say that this is a cliche but then this is true. We just have to have faith in the Lord and surrender all our cares.

I don't understand how anybody can believe that anything bad 'happens for a reason'. What reason could there be for people who are maimed or killed during accidents, conflicts, wars etc? What reasons could there be for someone being born deaf/dumb/blind/deformed? Or somebody being maimed for life as a result of a vicious beating?

I couldn't agree with you more. Everyone has told me the same thing, and I really hope that one day I will find my reason to live on. I just get lost currently. I don't have great luck in my business, and I certainly don't have luck with love either. What that leave me? A total loser in my life right now.

I am sorry to know about your bunsiness and love life. I am not aware of the details but on ething can say that ups and down in life exists for everyone. I got my first job after 46 interviews, do you think I should have gave up on this? I did not give up and decided to get rejected from each company which exists in this world and then only will die. Now when I have got the track on life its easy to move on. There has to be some way and might be approaching to you. Start fresh and with energy, give some direction to your actions and thoughts, there has to be some way. These are my feelings plese do not mind if you dont like some lines. Thank you for sharing.

Yes, everything happens for a reason... We may not know it now but in time... You'll know the reason... There could be a lot of ifs and buts... You'll just gonna have to hold on to what do you think is best... then let go if you can't get what you wanted in life... Everything happens for a reason....

I think everything thats happening in our life or in your life.... are the reflection of your own action:)..... We are the one who chose what we like and what we want to do even the words that we wanna say..... whatever happens its a matter of choice..and no one can force us to do things that we dont like to do... So all i can say everytime we will make make a decision...as HIM to be with you:)

nicely said ajay! i also believe that everything happens for a reason. so i sort of agree with you. i'd also like to share this light quote to you because your discussion reminded me of it. here it goes, "in the end, everything will be okay, if it is not okay, then it is not yet the end." simple, but makes sense right? actually that's from spongebob squarepants. but it does makes sense when you think about it.

I agreed with you. Life is something that make us learn from everything. Family and friend are the best place for me to share of life. I think everybody has ever fall in life, and then it's about how we try to stand up again..

Ajay, based on my personal life, I can say what happened initially was very bad, but it became the basis for exposing the real bad, and today the world is more aware of what is really bad, so it has been for the good of the world. In the process though, three lives have been lost!
