“Some people think that things happen for a reason, and so they try to discern what that reason is. Others say that certain things are “a sign”. So they try to understand what the sign is telling them. In one way or another, people try to find meaning in the events and experiences of their lives. Yet the fact is that nothing has any meaning at all. There is no intrinsic truth hidden in the encounters and experiences of life. Who would hide it there? And why?
If it were there for you to discover, wouldn’t it be much more efficient to make it obvious? If God had something to tell you, wouldn’t it be a lot easier (to say nothing of kinder) to simply tell you, rather than make it a mystery that you had to solve?
The fact is, there is no meaning to anything, save the meaning you give it. Life is meaningless. That is difficult for many humans to accept, yet it is My greatest gift. By rendering life meaningless, I give you the opportunity to decide what anything and everything means. Out of your decisions will you define yourself in relationship to anything and everything in life.
This is, in fact, the means by which you experience Who You Choose to Be.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “Communion with God”
