There’s a reason for everything under the sun.
The attribution is the thing, however, that gets in our way. We see things through our uniquely-coloured glasses. If we like a person or something they’ve done it’s because we see in them something that reminds us of something we like in ourselves or someone else we respect.
The attribution is not the truth; not always.
We’re quick to attribute “cause” when in fact causation is a long way from our minds. Our mischievous hearts and our errant minds hold sway many times.
Why. One single word; it’s the most important question we can ask ourselves.
Reason suggests the cause of many things is well beyond our first attribution of it.
