Is It True That Everything Happens For a Reason?

April 5, 2009

sad-woman-silhouetteThe idea that there is a loving guidance at work in the Universe is much easier to accept when life is going well. In times of misfortune or grief, it can be difficult to accept those five familiar words invariably offered by well-meaning friends: Everything happens for a reason. Given that Divine guidance may be thwarted by another individual’s act of free will, it is more accurate to say that everything that happens has purpose or creates purpose.

When our world seems especially dark, it does not seem possible that such a statement can be true. We reject it as a rationalization intended to help us cope with tragedy, loss, or disappointment.

Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe on the Healing Power of Love

Ibrahim’s love and wisdom resonated deeply within me and I have learned much from him, including the Awareness Release Technique, a powerful method to achieve deep and lasting healing.

Ibrahim Jaffe, M.D., a licensed medical doctor, clairvoyant, healer and spiritual teacher, co-founded what is now the University of Spiritual Healing & Sufism in 1988.

The ultimate goal is to immerse yourself completely in the deep love and maintain that connection in every moment of your life, which will prevent disease from ever occurring. (more…)
