What is meant to be, will be

"It is strange how we became friends", a running pal commented.
"When things are meant to be, I guess they do happen", I replied.
We chatted about it for awhile. "As a scientist, I can't make sense of how things happen", she mused. "They defy all laws of science as we know it."
"I don't even think about it", I told her. "When things are supposed to happen they do. We don't understand it today, but a century later, it may be mainstream science."

It is not fatalistic to think that what it meant to be will be- that's reality.

Natasha - I just love your attitude! Yes, science is vital; it helps to answer our questions, and it provides us with important guidance. But as you say, things happen as they need to happen. We don't always know why at the time they happen, but the universe is not random.

Besides, you'll hurt your brain just trying to wrap around it!

I've been watching a lot of documentaries lately. The things they are discovering these days amaze me. I think that one day things will be discovered that almost defy logic.

I totally believe that what's meant to happen will happen. It's a big part of my personal faith. Each struggle I go through is molding me into the person I'm going to be. Now knowing the PURPOSE of what we go through, that's totally another question :-)

It like trying to understand the chaos theory...you can ponder it for a lifetime.

I love this! Over-thinking is one of the worst things you can do, and of course we do it very often. :) I like you're, "What's happened, has happened. Why question it?" attitude.
