the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Didn't Understand It Then; Don't Understand It Now

Silvia, from Italy, asks:

What is the so-called "good luck/bad luck"? For example, why do some great people get deadly diseases and others have a beautiful life when they don't deserve it?

When I first realized that this inequity existed in the world, I was quite young. Now, I'm not quite young, and I still don't get it. Perhaps there's something to the karmic explanation: this life is all about what happened in the last one.
