Do you believe that certain things happen to you for a reason? That sometimes a certain sequence of events happen that bring to you a certain situation you never expected? Do you believe that there are people you are supposed to meet sometime in your life?

Personally I do. But a friend of mine tells me: Nah, it's just your mind making a justification out of all the things that happen to you to keep you from going insane.

What do you guys think?

If you factor the events leading for you to meet someone you cared, then it could be.

These questions are things that are pondered in "The Matrix" series. The question of "certain things happen to you for a reason" is another way of saying that we were meant to do something in this life, and that is why we are here. To this, Agent Smith has this to say: "But, as you well know, appearances can be deceiving, which brings me back to the reason why we're here. We're not here because we're free. We're here because we're not free. There is no escaping reason; no denying purpose. Because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist."

As to a certain sequence of events happen to bring to you a certain situation, this is nothing but "causality". These are the words of the Merovingian: "You see, there is only one constant. One universal. It is the only real truth. Causality. Action, reaction. Cause and effect... We are all victims of causality... Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without."

And whether I believe there are people you are supposed to meet sometime in your life, I would take the wisdom of Morpheus: "What happened, happened and couldn't have happened any other way."

i believe in destiny but it's useless to think about since you're only gonna get to know once you're there. so why bother? haha

I believe in being disciplined, making decisions, to stop and think, focus, do your job and be responsible for your actions.

Which is the reason I believe in pre-destination rather than free will. What will be will be. Rizal was ordained to die by firing squad long before he was even born. Judas was chosen to betray Christ before his grandfather was even born.

Pre-destination vs. free will. I think there's a sub-forum regarding that in the religion forum of MTC.

personally

I think destiny is a word for the lazy.


it basically means that whatever you do, you will always end up where you are now, and will go to a pre-determined destination as caused by whatever.

so if destiny were true, I could just lay on my ass and wait for things to happen, because whatever I do I will still end up where I'm supposed to end up.

which of course isn't true.

all things happen for a reason, and a lot of times the main reason is you.

I think it's just a concept to explain things that happen when it doesn't make sense. It's mainly because of this overwhelming human need to have control over things, so when things happen that we can't control, we just say "oh yeah that s@%t was meant to happen", but when in reality it's just a random event, that holds no meaning whatsoever.

It's a yes and a no. I think that there are some things that are predestined but you also need to get off your butt and work on your life. It's not going to happen if you are just sitting on your ass the whole day.

I too believe in such. But there are forces always stand in my way and they don't want me to become what I am suppose to be. They are more afraid for me to have great successes in life. I did have some destined visions or dreams once yet they immediately fade because some things are intervening including divine intervention. It's so effin' unfair, y'know? I still believe in it and no one will stop it from happening. I will get what I truly deserve.

Destiny? Maybe, part of me wants it because of past experiences but I think hard work and dedication will bring you places not just destiny.

Well, I would like to believe in destiny. The idea sounds romantic, right? But realistically, well, life is what we make it. Therefore, whatever path we take or whoever partner we choose, is governed by our own free will (decision).



Remember that your "free will" is limited by the experiences and learning you have accumulated therefore the decision you'll make and feel as the best option is already predertermined as with everyone elses so what is bound to happen will definitely happen. The decision whether you will act or be lazy is still a function of your accumulated arsenal and again limited only by it. Peace!

"Destiny" defies "free will"... if "destiny" is true, "free will" is not i.e. you cannot change your "destiny" even you have "free will"... and at the same time, you cannot enjoy having a "free will", if you having a "destiny"...



I don't know, I'm probably reading a lot of stuff that I shouldn't believe at all...

Why is there nothing about fortune telling stories or a list of very good fortune tellers. Of course we know of Madame Auring or Rene Mariano or The Radio Boy or Mr. Nguyen etc but I am sure there are good ones which are not known. Do you know of any? Sayang walang topic about HULA.
