It sounds like Buddha was the original “find the silver lining” champion, huh? Not surprised. I believe that everything that happens in life happens for a reason. It’s for you to learn something or for someone else to learn something. Or, as it is probably 99% of the time, for both of you to learn something. How often do we look back and say “ah yes, THAT is why that needed to happen.” It’s not always pleasant but everything works together for our good. I think what Buddha is getting at is that the sooner we realize it, the happier we will be. Here’s to finding the blessings in all things!
Have a wonderful Sunday, friends!
