"Life is Unfair, and It's Not Fair that Life is Unfair." ~Edward Abbey, 1927~1989

why is it ...

I've come to the conclusion that someday, when I get to heaven, I'm going to ask God a few questions. I've been saving them all up. There are things that really bug me and I've never found answers to them here on this human plane called earth.

Why is it that innocent children are allowed to be born to parents who don't give a darn? For the most past, the children raise themselves. They're slapped around and abused, and worse yet, they're shown no love or affection at all by the so-called parents. Then on the flip side, there are hundreds of thousands of couples who would give most anything they have, just to be able to conceive a child. They wait with unconditional love filling their hearts to pour into a child, if only they were given the opportunity and were blessed to have one.

Here's another question I'm planning to ask. Why is it that prisons are overflowing with mean, psychotic people who live long and wasted lives? Then on the flip side, there are so many men, women and children who die young, their goodness and talent never to be realized, nor shared with the world.

I also have this to ask: why is it that we women spend our lives and our valuable time shaving or waxing various parts of our anatomy to comply with society's set norms and then, when we finally manage to make it to our golden years, the only places hair will even grow is on our heads and on our upper lips and chins? Why is that?
For men it's just as bad. The hair on their heads thins out, or becomes non-existent, and when they reach their golden years, the only places hair WILL grow -- and quite profusely, I might add, is in and on their ears and in their nostrils. Why is that?

Why is it that there are people in the world that don't value life and who hate others, based purely on differences of religion, sexual orientation, or the color of their skin? Then they spend the majority of their lives planning ways to unleash their hate on innocent people, like with the Twin Towers in New York City. Why is it?

Spiritual counselor, Gary Zukav, says that everything is as it should be. He says things happen for a reason, and that reason is, for our spiritual growth and awareness. Maybe so, but someday I'm going to ask the questions anyway ...

P.S. ... and I'm sure there must be a very good reason, but I'd like to also know why there are mosquitoes.

Beautiful questions of the heart.
I find I have lost any motivation to deny my awareness that things- are not as they should be.
The famous quote could be adjusted- "All it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to say everything is as it should be."
I think we better do something.

It has been my observation that people who don't have a life of their own tend to suck the life out of those who do. It's a perversion of the laws of thermodynamics. Patrick
