Why

All humans want to know ‘why’?  Why this, why that, why me.  Beyond  social-economic, natural, and scientific realms is the why me.  Why am I here?  Why is this happening to me?

I believe everyone experiences and feels this question at some point in their lives.  We all want to have purpose, to live a life that matters in some way however small.  We have dreams, goals, plans and ideas about where we will go and what we will do…and then life happens.  Sometimes life happens in an awesome and sychronistic way and sometimes it comes as an unexpected thief, stealing our dreams, our loved ones, our homes, our health.  “Why” is our bewildered response.

It is these profound moments that create the opportunity to learn acceptance, adaptability, forgiveness and faith.  Sounds simple and even trite.  But to plunge (or be plunged) into the depths of our psycho-spiritual soul is more often than not a traumatic event.  It is working through the ensuing anguish, working through the why, that becomes an integral part of our journey to wholeness.
