There is a Reason…


There is a reason
For every pain that we must bear,
For every burden, every care
There is a reason.

There is a reason.


For every hurt, for every plight,
For every lonely, painful night,
There is a reason.


Yet, if we trust God, as we all must,
It all can turn to be for our good,
He knows the reason.


— Swami Chinmayananda


There are no coincidences or accidents in life. Everything happens for a reason. Pay close attention.
