Miracles/guardian angels

Post by mint » 21 Jan 2011, 01:15

Ok i thought this would be a pretty intersting topic.

So the question is do you beleive in miracles and guardian Angels?

I certainly do now after tuesday.

My dad was travelling to work in the morning as he always does along the motorway or highway as you americans call it, he skidded on a patch of ice that was there, smashed into the concrete barrrier in the central reservation, that catapulted him back into traffic, a concrete mixing lorry hit his truck, then hit it again sending my dads truck onto its roof which sent it rolling down a 20 foot banking at the side of the motorway which when it stopped rolling it landed upright and the movement made my dads head go through the window shattering it.

He walked out of the accident without a scratch on him, i beleive that someone was looking over him, very lucky.

Mint that's horrible! Your father is one lucky man, definitely someone watching over him :)
Yes, I do believe in guardian angels/miracles, especially after that.

I dont believe in Guardian Angels or plain miracles, I prefer to beleive in karma. I find it more believable that your Dad survived because he has been very unselfish in the past, exactly the same as football. You work hard, you get your rewards and make your own luck

Thants not karma, thats called working hard and improving :o You can be an incovenient assh**e to everybody, a complete bastard, a total gaylord, a big dumb jerk, but work like a horse on practice and still improve....

On topic, I believe in guardian angels, but more importantly I believe everybody has a mission in this life, a mission that God chose for us, and simply it wasn't your ad's time to go... As simple as that... Sometimes people die because a little cut on their foot got infected and they didn't take care of it, some really insignificant things, and yet other peoples like your father, or others, surprisingly surprise situations where the odds of surviving where minimal.... I think everybody has a time to go, and it wasn't his time.. Deep stuff when you think about it..

I am more inclined to agree with H2H. Every time I prop myself up to be good, I am wary, because I know karma will bite me in the ass very soon. It always has. That's part of why doing good things is such a joy for me. I know it will eventually be returned to me.

I'm also more inclined to go the Karma way rather than the Guardian Angel way. Taking my recent exams for example, and comparing how I've done with my classmates, I worked my ass off all year, no partying or anything, and came out with results that put me in the top 5%(ish) of the country. In comparison, classmates with just as much (I'd say probably more natural ability than me) didn't work as hard and consequently just missed out on the award I got. There's a couple of personality issues with them that others might point to as influencing this (in terms of karma) but it's not something that I care about particularly... They'll sort themselves out I'm sure, once they click on to what it is.

I dunno, I mean I'm not religious or anything (for a variety of reasons - leaning towards agnosticism as opposed to atheism, as I'd like to think there is someone looking out for us all somewhere, even though I really can't see how there is) but I believe that if you work hard, treat all others with respect and focus on being a decent human being then eventually things will go right for you.

Fantastic that your Dad is all good Mint, as you said, very lucky indeed! :D

I mean, i believe in karma, that if you do a person a favor, you will get it in return, same as if you screw some one up, you'll get it back, but i don't believe that because you've been a selfish person your gonna die any younger than a person thats relatively good..

Hitler lived a lot...

Little kids, inocent kids who are good and pure have died really young... karma?

Obviously not..

Theres a beautiful quote from Bruce Almighty by Morgan Freeman (Who is playing God)

'Parting a soup is not a miracle Bruce its a magic trick. A sinlge mother who's working two jobs and still finds time to take her kid to soccer practice, Thats a miracle. A teenager who says no to drugs and yes to an education. Thats a miracle. People want me to do everything for them but what they don't realise is, they have the power. Want to see a miracle son, be the miracle'

So deep, so true

That's a point I could use to disprove a whole heap of other religious/belief theories. I don't mean this in an argumentative sort of way, just as a general point :)

Glad to hear he is fine man! That is great news.

I believe in God, Karma is something i feel he injects into our lives but in a different way than what alot of us make out to be.

Im not a religious nut, but your Dad was lucky and I think God helped him out man.

All this God, karma- jazz is connected.

Great news my friend
