When we're young, we are taught early on that there are consequences to our wrong doings. As we grow older, life re-emphasizes that point to us again. Our minds end up being programmed to understand that wrong doing = negative outcome.
I think that's partly to blame for why we always have to find a reason for everything. Even death!
I was just talking to a friend of mine whose grandmother passed away this week. She wasn't sick, nothing was wrong.. it was sudden. Somehow, my friend and her mom have found a million reasons why they blame themselves for the grandmother's death!
Why the guilt? It's God's will. But then it made sense. There was no illness to blame for the death.. no accident to blame the driver of the car.. which leaves negligence and our own actions as the main targets for the blame! After all, negative outcome = wrong doing! :/
