- Something in your life that does not make sense. An equation you are trying to solve. The formation of a belief. A story you may be telling yourself. A form of blame that seeks understanding. It may be in our nature to seek understanding and make sense of events and reality. Why did the cup break?

If you understood the reasons for events or circumstances in life you do not like, would it help you to put certain issues to rest?
