Everything Happens For A Reason: How to LIVE the Truth of this one idea...

Thursday July 25, 2013 In-person Class

Everything Happens For A Reason:
How to LIVE the Truth of this one idea...

(and feel the relief that comes with truly understanding what it means.)

Have you ever had somebody say to you, "Everything happens for a reason!" And how helpful did you find that "assurance?" My mom used to say it to me, without being able to explain to me either how that could be, OR how she could be so sure of it. And that used to drive me bonkers. In fact, she said it so often - and always about things that were really quite painful - that I came to actually resent those words whenever she said them. And then she died. Suddenly. At only 51 years of age. And guess what happened. My Great Aunt Myrtle (my father's aunt) said to me, "Everything happens for a reason!" And that just pissed me off. When I cried, "WHAT REASON????!!!" She could only say, "...I don't know..."

That was when I began to truly HATE that five-word sentence. I think that often, when someone says those words to a person who is struggling, it's because they want to help but they don't know how, and "Everything happens for a reason" is an easy sentence to say and that's truly as helpful as they know how to be in the moment. The trouble with it, though, is that most people find that it only adds to their pain when someone who is not having the same experience says it to them. (And it doesn't matter one bit what the situation is - something that feels big or something that feels little. It could be a diagnosis, a car accident, loss of a loved one, loss of a business, a missed opportunity, a fire in the kitchen... whatever.)

What my mom and my Auntie Myrtle (and probably most of the people on this planet) didn't know, though, was that "Everything happens for a reason" is only PART ONE of the sentence! There is a PART TWO that not only makes it make complete sense, but that can be practically APPLIED in any circumstance to bring us to a feeling of relief and empowerment!
