Tragedies and Setbacks

“Tragedy has been in the news a lot lately.

A tragedy can affect an individual, a family, a city or an entire country. Tragedies come in all forms. It’s a tragedy when somebody everyone loves passes on. They will miss that person’s light in this world.

It’s a tragedy when a person suffers an accident or an illness that negatively affects their life. It’s a tragedy when people see animals hurt and abandoned. These tragedies and setbacks are a part of every ones’ life challenges. 

Where you are right now is the sum of all your past decisions. 

You started making this chain of decisions very young. By the time you finished high school, you made some very critical decisions. What do you want to be when you grow up? What kind of education would you need to do that? What college would you need to attend to get that degree? After graduating from college what company would you go to work for? Where would you want to live? 

Most people are prone to make decisions, if they have a choice, to live where there is good weather, possibly an ocean, an environment that supports their hobbies and outdoor activities. What people never consider when they make a decision is that every decision has consequences. These consequences could be favorable, or not. You may pick the wrong school, the wrong career, the wrong company to work for. You may see these as tragedies in your life. 

One thing people tend not to give enough attention to is where they choose to live.

Many times that choice is governed by where the family lives. Maybe you didn’t want to live in that geographic area, or you wanted to get away from the family. It all boils down to the fact that you really do have a choice where you live. 

The recent tragedies that happened in Texas and Louisiana, Florida and the Caribbean affected many millions of people who made a decision in their past to live in these areas. Most did know what kind of harm they would be putting themselves in by living in such a volatile weather area. There are certainly many other places in the country that have far more stable weather environments that hardly ever experience tornadoes, flooding, hurricanes, or any of the catastrophic natural events that could happen. 

If you are fearful of dying in an earthquake you probably wouldn’t move to an earthquake-prone area, like anywhere in the Ring of Fire. If you have a fear of dying in a flood you probably don’t want to live in a floodplain or any area prone to serious flooding: that could be on a river, or a gulf, or an ocean because that’s where flooding occurs. If you don’t want to die in a forest fire, don’t build your house in the woods. 

However, peoples’ decisions become clouded by the mystical pretense of living in such areas by wanting to be one with nature.

The lessons is … when nature becomes seriously dangerous you experience the consequence of a decision you made long ago. Some people are so out of touch with nature and the universe that they go back and rebuild where their lives were destroyed, not once, but several times. They look at it like it was just a setback that they are determined to overcome. However, the next time it’s worse than ever and you will never overcome it, or rebuild in the same spot, and maybe never live in the same state. So rather than suffering and blaming others when a tragedy or setback hits your life, be prepared for the consequences of the decisions you make.”


  • The sum of all your decisions and choices is where you are right now in your life.
  • You most likely didn’t make all these decisions recently that put you in harm’s way now. 
  • Each decision you make in the future should be only after you look at the possible positive and negative effects of that decision

How It Works: These recent weather and earth related tragedies are not new. However, they are becoming more frequent and intense in their strength and size. The warning it sends to everyone is to expect an enormous overhaul of the old established structures and unprecedented changes. This is cyclical and predictable, yet most of the population lives right on the frontline of catastrophe. in hindsight, it’s easy to see all of the bad decisions that brought them to this point. The lesson is to evaluate your current situation and willingly, make the changes now so you don’t suffer the consequences of bad decisions later. This is guidance for everyone to heed. ~ Linda Deir
