Perhaps there is really no correlation between what we deserve and what we get. Perhaps that’s why the Gita advises us to let go of the fruits of our actions, for there is no direct equation. Faith and reason are the tools we use to understand life, and both fail us at such times. Perhaps Life is indeed completely random.
Am quite ashamed to quote it TOTALLY out of context from the original personal post here.
I would have liked to extend the above with my thoughts and put my perspective (and probably a context), but thats for another day.
