A sad day today . . . a funeral for a 43-year-old friend struck down in a car/motorcycle accident.

Sometimes I have a very hard time believing or even hoping there is purpose to our existence in this material world. I have long since given up on a personal god . . . But as a Theosophist, I have believed in a Great Energy force that fills the heavens and the Earth, that animates us, that we are manifestations of this Great Energy.

Today, I am at odds with that Great Energy for what I see as a terrible betrayal . . . even though I know I shouldn’t take anything it does personally, for it is impersonal . . .
