Re: Ross Patterson from Melanie Alt

I wonder if "events happen[ing] without 'why'" leads to the thought of destiny and fate. It seems like it's the thought that you have no control over it so there is no why. To answer because is because you had some hand in it happening. But if it happens because of fate, then your why is unneeded.

Ha, and now that I say that, I guess if you believe in fate and destiny, then that is your why. Your why, is because that is just what it supposed to happen. And then that leads me into thinking about heavenly bodies and how much faith society puts into such higher beings.

I guess I ramble and come around full circle, not atypical of me I suppose. I have been battling with this idea of fate and that if something is meant to happen it will, and I take that with the Edward situation that you know about. If it is supposed to happen it will, is how we are taking it, so I guess I do have this underlying belief that some entity has some control over my future.

Wow, I hope I haven't confused you hon.
