A notion that is alien to the philosophy of the initiates

September 19th 2014
Everything that happens in the world happens for a reason. A sage is convinced of this, which is why there is nothing that can make him lose his light, his peace and his trust. Even if many events still remain unexplained for him, he does not allow himself to call divine wisdom into question, for he knows that one day the event’s meaning will be revealed to him. It is true that life often presents us with facts and situations which appear at first to be incomprehensible, absurd and even scandalous: how are such things possible? But there is nothing more terrible or more dangerous than to reach the conclusion that human life is devoid of meaning. A sage will never say, as certain so-called philosophers do, that everything is just chance, chaos and absurdity. What arrogance to claim that something you are not yet able to understand is meaningless! And how limited can thought be!
