    Its mental masturbation. Its like the word synchronicity, chakras and crystals. Its BS. May as well try to read tea leaves.

    "Everything happens for a reason" is a superstition.

    It is an expression lingering from the pre-scientific days of belief in despotic gods. It is a linguistic and cultural relic encapsulating a spirit of total dependency on mythical Fates and Fortune. (look up the Roman Goddess Fortuna and for that matter the earliest written books of the Bible depict God as bringing both good and evil, Mic 2;3 etc).

    It would be absurd to be so inclusive as to say "everything" has a reason when clearly this could never be the case.

    Celebrate the surreal beauty of the world!
