It is impossible to understand all the things that happen in this world, all the sadness, all the tragedies, all the fortune and misfortune. We can drive ourselves crazy trying to figure it out. The sage realizes this and doesn’t try to understand the un-understandable, if you will. You see, you experience, and you move on. Who can say why certain things happen and why certain things do not? Your intense passion for another is met with cold indifference. You find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time, or perhaps on a happier note, in the right place at the right time. Stars fall from the sky, mountains crumble, rivers flow, the Dao carries on.
