Zen

Q. Is there a reason why things happen to us?

A. Why are you asking this question? If you realise why this question came to you, you can grasp why things happen to us because your asking this question is also a kind of happening. Because of your curiosity? Then, where is it from? Why did it come to you?

To keep asking yourself this question is Zen practice itself. If you find the answer to this, you can realise why the most important things; birth, ageing, illness and death, happen to us.
