“Behind the sometimes seemingly random or even chaotic succession of events in our lives as well as in the world lies concealed the unfolding of a higher order and purpose. This is beautiful expressed in the Zen saying “The snow falls, each flake in its appropriate place”… “A New Earth, p.194.

“… it is impossible for the mind to understand what place or purpose a seemingly random event has in the tapestry of the whole. But there are no random events, not are there events or things that exist by and for themselves, in isolation. The atoms that make up your body were once forged inside stars, and the causes of even the smallest event are virtually infinite and connected with the whole in incomprehensible ways. If you wanted to trace back the cause of any event, you would have to go back all the way to the beginning of creation…” Op Cit, 197.
