is a parable whereby God speaks to us,
and the art of life is to get the message."

    Rings true for me. All of life is a dialogue with the 'world' which responds to every word/action. Learning to discern is separating the wheat from the chaff. The art of life is not just to 'get' the message, but to 'live' the message. ;-)

    This seems to say that everything happens for a reason. This I do not agree with.

    jim, I don't believe that everything happens for a reason either - some times "stuff" just happens. I also think that "stuff" as a parable falls into a messaging art of life. What do you think?
