The Good, The Bad, and The All-Inclusive: From a tribal perspective, everything has a purpose in nature, in spirit, and in time. There may be many things that occur (in a single life) that discomforts us and appears terribly unfair in the universe, but in the grand scheme of things, sometimes even logic or reason can’t explain tragedy and despair. Sometimes really bad shit will happen to us, and there’s no consoling any part of those wounds. But likewise, the Gods will shine their light upon us, and our path is clear and certain.
The most dangerous rationale for the universe is when humans, blame and curse others for something that was always supposed to be. Every single thing that has ever occurred is necessary, for the paths that we’re in right now, including divinity and chaos, which are always within the closest proximity to each other.
The Creator of all things imaginable (and unimaginable) is nonpartisan and organic, and sometimes we are favored and sometimes we’re not. It depends on your individual life purpose and harmony. I tend to believe that—people who don’t know suffering, will experience it—people who’ve walked with suffering, will find peace.
