Recently someone asked me a very profound question, and I have been thinking about it a lot. She asked: Can you accept that life is not fair?
I thought about it and said no.
She seemed to think that my inability to accept this fact is the source of my troubles.
So, I turn the question back to you dear friends, Do you accept that life is unfair? Do you believe that life is unfair?
I can't explain how this relates to the passage, but it does. :-) If I had to take a stab at it, I would ask, Is Nature unfair?
