Everything Has a Reason

Updated on August 19, 2012

Why on earth do you believe in God?' my friend said after a long chat in café.

'Listen! Not everything in this world has a reason to begin with', I said when I had nothing else to say or put a fact.

My words were like I was hanging on a leaf to save myself from drowning. A long silence followed between us in which neither of us said anything. After all, some things really don't have a reason at all.

That's why I am writing this piece right now. If everything were for the sake of questions and answers, I don't think we would be the way we are now.

My friend was moved when he watched George Carlin's show, 'It's bad for ya'! He came straight towards me and started questioning like an interviewer. Everything went well until we came to our good old topic, God and religions.

He asked me those questions that I never thought in my life, never questioned about them from anyone. Not even from my parents who were the source of this knowledge of God and religion.

He cornered me with a line which is worth mentioning here. 'Have you ever thought that we (human) are the only species who have killed our own kind more than any other species on this earth?'

I obviously did not know what to say, he told me that the line was from George Carlin's show.


We left the café after a silence of 15 minutes. I don't know if I was infuriated by his vast knowledge or my lack of knowledge. I couldn't help myself from saying, "Everything in this world can't be explained with your Science!!"

Was I wrong when I said that or was I merely trying to escape the fact that I knew nothing about the things I thought I knew? In any case, I am now thinking whether everything in this world that is happening or about to happen has a reason from the very start!

May be or may be not! I do have reason for several things that I do in my daily life. I've a job and reason is I want to earn money; reason, I want to buy things I like or need; reason, I can't live without them or feel happy with those things around me; reason, .......... (silence)!

Now when I think about it, the only reason that made me shake was why on earth I want to be happy!!

Pretty lame question, isn't it? Well that's what made me feel a bit better after the horrifying interviewing session with my friend.

I think the one thing that matters a lot and is above from everything is ‘happiness’ and though, I can’t say honestly that I want everyone to be happy (because one person’s happiness could mean the destruction of someone’s whole life), I can say that I want everyone to at least care about happiness and something along that line (I am not a preacher you know)!

Anyway, what you guys think about that? I’ll heartily accept your words, but please, keep it clean friends.

      kksonakiya,

      this is so sad... I guess not everybody can follow 'worldwide rules' as you call them and feel better. All I can say, because I do not wish to feel like you are hurting even more by talking more about her, is that part of the healing process (for you) could be to make this regret your 'friend' and learn to live with it without beating yourself up everyday. Just live for both of you.

      Good that you felt better, please go on feeling that way and take care!

      Oh no Clairpeek, that was not upsetting at all. I actually feel better after hearing it from you. Sometimes I just want to forget all abt science and logic and in some way, start to believe in things that don't exist.

      I may never write abt it Claire, because talking abt it makes it only worse for me (not a worldwide rule I guess). I could save her, I know I could. But I got blind, believed in what doctors had to say, believed in what my father had to say and lost her.

      If I had taken that one step, then I know she'd be alive and well. I'd regret it forever, for she was the closest person in my life.

      Hello kksonakiya,

      I am sorry you lost someone special; when I did, I guess I too turned to God somehow, for comfort... miracles in my case where not even an option, nor a wish. Yes, I get it one wants and needs to believe in God - or any other comforting idea - in cases like loss.

      You have a gift and although it is very little consolation, you can go back in time... write ^_^. It might not be as you would wish even so, but you still can write about it (whatever it is that happened). You do not need to share it, but it might help you with some closure... Just a thought, I do not wish to upset you with my big ideas...

      Take care,

      Clairepeek ^_^

      Hi there Clairepeek. I am so glad that you read each of my stories and posted a very nice comment. I agree with you as well. But somethime we do want to believe in God and things like that, like Miracles.

      I lost someone special to me and now every day I just hope that I could go back in time to stop it from happening. I know it is not possible but I still want to believe 'it is'.

      Thanks for your insight on the matter here. :)

      Interesting... I think we are all entitled to our own beliefs and therefore questioning about things; I do not think we are meant to find all the answers and whatever answer we find is bound to be subjected to some partiality from our way of seeing things... take science, I refuse to believe that it can explain everything and therefore I cannot have a constructive discussion with my little brother - a scientist ^_^. Why do I refuse to believe such a thing? Because it is really too depressing to have all the answers; plus, most of them I might not like anyway ;-)

      Regarding happiness... I do not believe happiness to be only a state of being, it has to be the path itself as well. Look at it this way, if you take in everything you experience on the path towards happiness (the good and the bad), you build your own knowledge and your own feelings for the world... and if that is not happiness, then what's the point... rushing to the goal with enjoying anything that leads us there; I'd doubt the validity of the word happiness ^_^
