It is said that "everything happens for a reason". But perhaps it is the "way" we "see" and "learn" from these experiences that often affects how these particular circomstances affect our lives. Can't help but think of when I was recently trying to follow directions to a particular place in New Brunswick, NJ. and suddenly became.....lost. However, as I continued trying to find my destination, I came across a familiar stretch of highway that I knew as a college student. I used to walk back and forth from an art store in Highland Park to the art school I was attending in New Brunswick with large, heavy amounts of art supplies. At the time, I used to curse the long, arduous journey back and forth. However, if it was not for going on these "walks", I would have never found my destination I was looking for years later! The fact that I recognized the location, helped me find where I had to go. I have to admit, I really laughed when I thought about this because in the end, this "experience" actually "helped" me. ..........Is "ALL" of life like that? Is one life experience "deliberately" tied to another? Are certain "people" we meet merely "stepping stones" upon which we meet other people? Are places we travel to merely leading us to other destinations? Is the entire universe tied to something else? Something ....bigger....perhaps a supreme being?.......GOD?......YES! I definitely think they are!
