    All events are purposeful.

    Everything happens for a reason, so there is no such thing as failure. Mary-Kate Olsen

    People like to say "everything happens for a reason." If you repeat that in your head long enough that starts to sound like "anything can happen with a razor." Laura Kightlinger

    I believe that everything happens for a reason, but I think it's important to seek out that reason - that's how we learn. Drew Barrymore

    The dynamic force of the play is karma, important concept of Indian thought. Karma means "action". It is the active principle of the play, the total universe in action, where everything is dynamically connected with everything else.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lila_(Hinduism)

    Causa est omnibus in Latin means 'there is a

    reason for everything. Similar meaning is given by

    the phrases "as you sow so shall you reap", "what

    goes around comes around", and "sow the wind; reap

    the whirlwind".

    Leucippus, the founder of the atomic theory,

    declared in his only surviving statement, "Nothing

    occurs at random, but everything happens for a

    reason and by necessity". It is known as

    Leucippus’ principle of causality.

    "Everything happens for a reason. Every action has

    a reaction. Always remember that whats meant to be

    will always find a way to come about."

    The second law of thermodynamics is that for every

    action there is an equal and opposite reaction. On

    the universal scale, this is the law of karma. The

    law of karma basically states that every action

    has a reaction and whatever you do to others will

    later return to you. Furthermore, ignorance of the

    law is no excuse. We are still accountable for

    everything we do, regardless of whether we

    understand it or not.

    According to Vedic literature, karma is the law of

    cause and effect. For every action there is a

    cause as well as a reaction. Karma is produced by

    performing fruitive activities for bodily or

    mental development. One may perform pious

    activities that will produce good reactions or

    good karma for future enjoyment. Or one may

    perform selfish or what some call sinful

    activities that produce bad karma and future

    suffering. This follows a person wherever he or

    she goes in this life or future lives. Such karma,

    as well as the type of consciousness a person

    develops, establishes reactions that one must

    experience.

    Unification Theory:

    The "Unification Theory" is built on the fundamental knowledge of physics, the oneness and interrelationship and nature: ecologically, individually and the whole world. The knowledge of this system and its dynamic capacity to survive, grow and transform in relation to the other dynamic systems is most profound. The theory encompasses all living and non-living systems that exist, which parallels the particle and wave duality and its coexistence within the whole universal system of operation. Countless mathematicians, physicists, philosophers and religious thinkers have attempted throughout the ages to find the one thing that can tie all things together.

    We live in a world where things happen in logical, rational order rather than random, pure chance.
