Um what do you guys believe in ?

3 years, 3 months ago

Well this though has always played around in my mind, do you guys believe our life is already planned out for us? Like as in the universe has already made a plan of what how and when something will happen to us and where we will end up and how our life will end?….Or do you think this depends on our actions?

This may not have been the answer you were looking for and I apologize if I’m killing the discussion but

I mean, I definitely have the sense of having free will, I do have the choice to run outside and jump off my balcony if I want. But if I did this, would it have already been “planned” by the universe and it was all part of my destiny? I guess the correct answer is it doesn’t matter lol

I mean, whether your life is pre-planned or whether you are creating as you go, does it affect how you live your life or the decisions you will/should make?

I think the word “planned” implies divine intelligence so no, I don’t think our lives are planned. However, I think whatever is going to happen has already happened. This makes sense in the context of time only existing so everything doesn’t happen simultaneously. This doesn’t mean we don’t have free will, we just have a variety of choices within whatever our means may be at any given moment.
I don’t get why people think if there is no grand scheme involving them that their life is pointless. There is still so much to learn, discover, and enjoy regardless!

Everything exists and doesn’t, at the same time. By a frequency of oscillation that is so high that it’s way beyond our perception. This frequency is what we know as permanence. Every point in time, every event, every manifested object exist right here and now.

We are little parts of consciousness. Vibrational interpreters and shapers of what is. We’re in control, we just haven’t discovered the full extent of it yet. Nothing is planned out before, there is no before. We are here and now, and we create, attract and repel various constellations of vibration that we form with our minds and experience with our bodies. There is no such thing as destiny, there is only goals, the journey toward the goals and achievement of those goals. Now these may be conscious or unconscious, which is why people don’t realize they are in control. We decide for ourselves, whether we pay attention to what we decide or not.

Well, what I really believe is that you should get a life and do something with it instead of making theories of existence ;p

If you think of it like an express train, as an analogy, we are the people on board and there are numerous ways we can interact, numerous things we can say and do with others and numerous things we can do by ourselves. But the train itself started at a station and stops at stations, letting off people and letting new people on, but eventually it will reach that final destination where it will terminate. Where the train starts and finishes may be set but the interactions on board are, possibly, infinite.
