Is there a superior power controlling us?

2 years, 4 months ago

Call it God, universe or something else…
If yes, Why would that power want to end some lives in despair? Like in accidents?

@ameevee, Thanks for your message. I can feel your open heart reflected in your words. That already, is a rare thing on earth!

I learned a lot from a teacher named Mooji. He has a calm and sincere way that over time, helped me to experience this way of being.

On youtube there are three teachers that will help you. Papaji, Mooji, and Gangaji. There are others, but too many can get distracting. There is a process of discovery, and it is lovely. I am very exited for you, because I can tell you are ready for it. Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to point in way that could help.

It is Possible to Be in Both Worlds ~ Mooji

There are the laws of nature. Physics, biology, chemistry, all that jazz.

We are obviously created with a form that we cannot do much about. Yknow, we’re humans, not falcons or pike perches or nettles or rocks.
So yeah, there are “rules” that are made for us, which we cannot break. At least not yet.

Whether you want to credit this to a god or whatever is up to you, it’s a matter of interpretation.
But if you ask me it’s pretty damn silly to make up weird terms and explanations when there’s a perfectly fine scientific explanation and definition for all of it.

But something we cannot know for sure, is that we’re not really controlling it ourselves unknowingly. We might be the highest power, we may be the ones behind everything without being aware of it.
Theories…

But what I want to ask you all is. WHAT DOES IT MATTER?
Just do your thing, yknow, the rest doesn’t really matter.

@piptherational,
What about losing our loved ones in accidents?

Causal Theory. The brain is just a machine, every thought is caused initially by a reaction to the physical world. The reason we think in such complexity is because we happened to live in an environment that caused us to have these thoughts. God isn’t worth thinking about.

@robbycool, God is who you are and is worth finding. How do you know you exist?

@achyutram, different experiences of loss though painful, help us understand and prepare for when we leave everything behind in our own bodily death. We think that if life was all chocolate flavored it would be better, but this, actually is the best way. It’s not always the way we want, but our acceptance of how it is determines the level of harmony we can sense in life. If you want to blame God for events that take place, you still have to realize that no events actually take place. This does not mean pain does not feel real when it is felt. But the pain cleans you, and makes you strong. It allows you to strip things away to know the truth. We cannot keep anything, ever, except for what we are. It remains forever.

When loved ones are ‘lost’ they are never lost. Our dependance on physicality causes the sense of loss, but nothing that is real can be lost. They are still there if you really want to talk.

@trek79, i like how you think, the mention of the butterfly effect is exactly how i would have placed it. Consider the possibility, blocking the results and consequences of someones actions from affecting you – I think living alone for a lengthy period of time (5 or so years) would without a doubt open and broader the mind further in an age where time is taken so granted for.

@achyutram, Okay let me put it this way:

I believe (and this is MY OPINION only) that there exists a balance between Order and Chaos. An equal proportion of things happen for no reason at all as happen for a reason.

If someone dies “in despair,” it either happened for a reason or it didn’t. If it was for a reason, take comfort in the nobility and higher purpose of their death. If it wasn’t for a reason, then, well…shit happens.
