I have a penchant for explanations. The inexplicable, the uncertain make me uncomfortable. But the reality of life is that there are things you cannot logically explain.
I am a student of many things, and science is one of the important ones. I love the way science explains phenomena like gravity, rainbows, auroras, black holes . . . and well, countless other things. I say to myself . . . P E R F E C T!
But then, not everything is perfectly explained. While I marvel at the explanation behind the aurora, I struggle to understand why my being somewhere coincided with something happening at that moment. At the bottom of my heart, I often feel, there is a reason. . . but I just cannot find it. Years after some strange coincidence, I am awed by how perfectly everything fits in! Could I have known at that point?
Probably not. Time unveiled the mystery. And time always takes its time. . . . I heard somewhere that ‘Time takes time to reveal to you the person you are meant to be’ . . .
Could I have at least known how much time it would take? Will I be able ever to know? I don’t know. . . I never have . . .
So many of the decisions that I intuitively take, turn out to be so right. . . when I look back years later.
I wonder, how many factors is a person’s life a function of? Will we ever find out . . . ?
