Loved your approach on this subject. I have a simple answer for the “Why?”: if we knew everything, what would be the meaning of living? What would be the challenge? If we knew everything our life would be simply boring. Being able to predict everything would kill our ability to be creative, to thrive in unpredictable circumstances. We are indeed control freaks, that’s why some people flip out. The thing is, the more we want to control, the less control we have. The less we need to be in control, the more in control we will be. The waves are there whether we want it or not, we can’t just remove them out of the way like they don’t exist. What we need is to learn how to surf on them and enjoy the ride. That is how we create our own happiness.
