It makes no sense.
We are left with the question,
Why did this happen to me?
There are no easy answers.
There is no quick remedy for the pain.
Viktor Frankl said in his book, Man's Search for Meaning that suffering is a part of life.*
Suffering and pain allows us to enjoy pleasure and joy. They are the opposite sides of the coin in a Universe of dualities. We cannot have pain without pleasure. We cannot have joy without suffering. This is how life is.
Acceptance of the Truth is the challenge before us. Instead of avoiding the pain we should face it. And when we do, we are transformed. We move into a new sense of awareness. We become loving spirits in a physical world.
God bless us all as we travel our paths.
And remember, sometimes life seems to make no sense.
