How do you explain tragedy when it strikes? When innocent people suffer?  When there is no good answer to “Why?”  You open to the mystery.  Pain propels you to seek answers beyond the human world of tragedy and triumph.  As you come to see this reality in a new light, the sadness may not disappear, but with a new perspective, other characteristics come to the forefront.  Compassion.  Empathy.  A desire to help others.  The answer to “Why” will eventually come to awareness, if not in this physical realm, then in the non-physical, which is where your seeking will lead you, if you continue to follow the soul’s nudging.  Until then, know you are so very loved and you are far more than only human.
