To survive and manage, humans strive to explain why what happens happens, and especially why what happened happened. New Age thinkers offer many tools of analysis. For example: “This person is the mirror image of you;” “You attracted this because you needed to learn a lesson;” “Everything happens for the best.” These and other “universal metaphysical truths” can be very helpful to cultivate positive attitudes, but they don’t necessarily apply to every situation. Unfortunately—taken dogmatically—they can mislead.
