I believe there is a reason... but we may never know it.

If you will open your mind, you can know it now! ohyeah

As to the OP's question, everything has a purpose/reason! thumbs

precisely

there is always a pattern embedded in the chaos. you just have to assume a perspective (raise your consciousness) from which the pattern emerges.

Chaos is intentional so all you have to dew is ask those (WE) creating it, what the pattern is. chuckle

Re: Do you think things happen for a reason?
I was just thinking. Things become unusual. People stop using them. Means they are wasted. Means they have no purpose.

Maybe if when those things were usable to someone they were given to them, rather than recycled even...then things would be happening to them for a reason.

That's what I've been doing for the past 5 months. I've been "recovering" stuff peeps have discarded and am turning it into a livable place to live in the desert and in the middle of nowhere. smileydance I even recovered a toilet from various different locations, and have managed to make a working toilet from all the non-broken parts. shit

Yeah. I dig that. Had a friend talking about making a mud hut. I hope he got that thing built. I'm also talking about tying up technology, saying whoa, no reason with many years of advancement to reinvent something because you want to flex your brain. They call that re-inventing the wheel. We know how those work...Now if we could just use the old ones in the manufacture of the new ones. Not wheels, you know reuse the technology we already have.

Re: Do you think things happen for a reason?
I believe that there are many timelines for each person, persons, communities,countries, universes.

Which timeline you so choose is entirely up to you, and your state of mind pattern and awareness depending on the organic nature of your being.

For instance, if you crash because you weren't paying attention and loose a leg, would you then say that this happened for a reason so that your soul could learn compassion in this lifetime and gain a deeper understanding if it learned to rise after this or did this happen because you were simply not paying attention while driving .

You can also choose to live a life in bitterness and anger from loosing a body part and always feeling deprived from things because you now don't have a leg.

I honestly think that some life changing events are meant to happen to you for spiritual growth if you so choose; however, I'm now going into the direction that things just happen and they could make a turn for different at any point in time.

If you create a map of yourself throughout the years, you will see a mapped pattern of behavior and events and you will find that some events happened at very prevalent and almost synchronized patters. You might also find that while you were going through certain events that were lifechanging, the world was also going through certain life changing events, this is because we are all connected to each other, to space, to whatever it is that we were created from. In a micro level, you will make choices that will divert you from this connectedness and it will divert you in one way or another but it is moving and appears to be moving in different directions, it is also moving together.

It's confusing and hard to explain in words but yes, many things are happening and many things are meant to happen.

Re: Do you think things happen for a reason?
Okay, lets take for instance look at what is happening right now.
Isn't the way the world is, part of our projection of it.
We project our darkest aspects out into the world we see and in a sense, we are created the insanity we cannot deal with inside.
We hide and run from very dark and perverse aspects of ourselves and in this denial, we project these things into the world.
Our projection causes a split within the self, A fragmented self who have many separate selves.

Some do it to the point of total psychopathy (corporations, corrupt govts, corrupt people, murderers, communism, etc), but we all do it to some extent, giving these forces more power. it's like empowering the beast. We hide and project and create the world we live in, in some sense.
Isn't our fear or complacency in doing anything about what's happening and the feeling of powerlessness to change anything feeding the beast itself?
And so we can say that everything that is happing is happening for a reason, and the reason is our deep denial and willfull ignorance (in a way our own insanity) to face ourselves and come face to face with our own dark aspects and find an integration of our "good" and our "evil" ways of ourselves and we will find that it's all aspects of personality and soul developement it can be transcended into a deep awareness and discovery of our vulnerability and our innocense and we might find that we're like babies full of light covered by so many layers of illusions and false believes and fears and if we dismantle all that and face our shadow, we will stop projecting it out into the world. We might find peace.
it's complicated. lol

of course there is a reason (cause/effect), there is just no purpose :)

Not everything happens for a reason. Some things are "meant to be". Other things are random.
