The disasters, catastrophes, tragedies and shocks in your life were not mistakes, failures, or punishments from the universe. The universe does not reward or punish – it does not play by dualistic human rules. These times of difficulty were wake-up calls, and they caused you to slow down, take stock of your life, stop distracting or numbing yourself, and ask profound and often difficult questions about reality. They caused you to re-focus on what really mattered to you, to re-commit to your path of curiosity and never-ending exploration of form.
