Perhaps we are have a blue print for life but within that theme we are experiencing we have choices and can use the energy to get closer to source.
but why do bad things need to happen to bad people? A sense of justice?
IMO, a healthy life approach is to accept things as they are, and things that cannot be altered. Some human beings simply are cruel, it is as is. Hitler or Stalin were as they were. It then is best to manage around such persons.
I also think that the Universe doesn't play favourites, it is impersonal. In that sense, bad things don't have to exclusively occur to bad people.
