When one loses a child, they sometimes fall victim to negative thought patterns. Usually, this would be associated with the attachment one has to “fairness” in life, or what one believes they deserve or have earned.
These laws and concerns are not present in nature, fairness is not to be determined by man. Nature has its own goals, the gods we’ve named in it have their own motives.
When death takes the ones we love, the ones we cherish, it is for its own reasons. When one understands this, life’s “tragedies” seem less so, as beauty resides in all of existence.
Every experience is a conscious validation of existence, a root from us into the very being of the Earth; a link between ground and sky. Whether we believe it or not, the things that are presented to us in life are the things we are meant to have; the lessons we must learn, the wisdom we must gain.
When things that are “unfair” beset us, it is a balancing within natures framework; cause and effect, the chains of karma. Life will ebb and flow like the tides, eternally returning, eternally disappearing.
“Fairness” only resides in the minds of men, and it’s wise to detach oneself from its fetters.
That which is fair, is what is.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Happy birthday little one.
