I believe in everything happening for a reason and that nothing is random the universe is all interconnected.Everything happens for a purpose and for a reason, God is all knowing, be it good, bad or indifferent God will give us what we need to endure...The way I see it everyone is put here for a reason, and we are all here to play our part in the bigger picture...Some people play big parts, some people play small parts..just our role is different

Oh yes! Nothing happens without reasons and one leads to the other,thereby linking everything. We get only what we deserve and every people have different blessings. This whole world is a great stage and we have to play our role perfectly and that is enough. Accepting that everything happens for the good is the best way to go along easily.

do you think DREAMS (dreaming) have reason/purpose?

Sure! Dreams are there as an outlet for unfulfilled desires. In this life, we long for so many things but some are beyond our reach. But the mind cannot accept the fact and continues to ponder over it. This has to be settled, somehow and there comes the dreams. Even unknown fears are also ruled out with the help of dreams. Sometimes, we even wonder whether we had such desires, while witnessing some dreams.

Though there have been plenty of times in my life that I have questioned why various things happen to me, I have come the conclusion that, yes, everything does happen for a reason. One of my friends when I was younger had a mantra for his life that "Those things that don't kill me will only make me stronger." I used to think it was silly at the time, but since then there have been more times that I've questioned things that happen in my life and now I too choose to live by that mantra.

I believe that. I believe that everything is meant to happen. I would like to share my experience that made me believe that everything is meant to be. I really want to have a laptop. I had a credit card back then but I was so stupid I splurge my balance on buying clothes and dining out. I got into bad debt, and I also regreted that I was not able to purchase a laptop. After a year, I was able to pay off my debt and is still dreaming of having a laptop. Then, just a month ago, someon broke into the apartment I stay at and stole her laptop. Imagine if I was able to purchase a laptop, I could have been crying my heart out if it got stolen. SO i guess it was really destined for me to be not able to buy a laptop yet because if i did, it would be taken away from me.

I agree and believe that everything happens for a reason! Whether it be good or bad everything happens for a reason! Sometimes when something bad happens you don't see the good until later, but their is always a positive to a negative!

Nothing happens without a cause, there is a cause for everything, and I believe in this. We too here are for a purpose and we must fulfill that purpose, if not cent percent, then to maximum possible extent.

I believe that everything happens for a reason . But, I do believe too that we have choices and options for everything we do. And that choices we made is the reason for everything that happens.

Not everything, perhaps, my life is pretty crap at the moment, hoping it will get better, but who knows? Today, though, it was on the news here in England that David Cameron (Prime Minister) had to fly to his mother's side because his dad has had a stroke. A terrible thing, that's something we'd all agree on. But it was just a couple of weeks ago that Mrs. Cameron had her baby girl, Florence, three weeks early. Obviously, if the baby had been on time then Mr. Cameron senior may never have known (we don't know his condition) and David would have had to be away from his wife's side when she had the baby. That's a bit of a juggle, isn't it? So for them, God was on their side. I do hope that Mr. Cameron comes through the stroke, it would be evil not to. Unless it was a massive destructive one, of course, that's not something I'd want to survive. I don't know why God broke my leg this year and has given me so many health problems all of the sudden, but at least with the NHS I don't have to pay for any of it.

I guess that is what we are taught by our parents and I agree with you totally. I strongly believe in god, and whether good or bad, god will give us the strength to endure it. I guess all of this has be drilled into my brain by my parents and am not able to say otherwise:-)

Yes I believe that. Sometimes we don't need to ask why things happen because it's out of our control and God has plan for everything happen on earth.

Whatever is happening is the outcome of experiences in the past whether its purposely created or not. Intentions are sometimes vivid and occasionally uncertain that is why string of events are being modified in generation. Several things that happen to a person are usually the product of his actions. Devising a setup according to whatever his goals in life. Chances in contrast to predetermined effects are considered random. The universe definitely recognize our existence but does not controls our fate. We are to interact with it and our actions have significant effects to others, and vice versa.

Yes, I agree. If you agree too, you should read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" by Mitch Albom. A really interesting book. I'm constructing a project on it for college. Easy book to read. Hope This Helped!

I do crazy. :) In someway - all elements have definite shape, and dimensions, - atoms of these elements, they not haphazard. :) So I kinda believe everything that god created would have definite directions. So if I turned towards left on the road, I would reach the bank. Something like that. And in the end, everything turns out just fine. So far, that is what I am seeing. :)

Like Anthony Robbins say, Everything happens for a reason and it serves us. I do think that things that happen do bring some new experience and knowledge to us. For each things that had happen, we tend to be more mature and if we think positively, even bad things that happen will make us a better person in future. Therefore, do take everything that happens to you as challenge instead of blaming luck or God for the bad things that happen to you.

No...the reason things happen is, we make choices and we are responsible for events.As far as illness...it just what it is.We don't get Cancer to become a more understanding person.I don't believe in the concept.

Yes I do believe. Thanks for sharing here. Last time, whatever I do, everything seems to be linked and I thought that was just a coincidence. Nowadays, I've came to realize that whatever we do, whatever happens, is just the result of something. We have to create something in order to let something happen. Yes, it's all interlinked. Nothing happens just for the sake of happening.

Sometimes I believe sometimes I dont..Sometimes when god doent gives us success then we are compelled to think that whats the silly reason behind it.When inspite of hardwork God is not with us then what purpose he has,Sometimes he gives success to thos ewho do not deserve and sometimes he gives happiness to thos ewho deserve so what is the point.Why cannot he be equal to all.We talk about inequalities between men and women.What if we say that the creator of the world has only created inequalities and differences between men and women what the people on earth will have control then?I think God chooses things and people according to his will.There is no purpose behind making someone so happy and someone so sad.Its all according to God's convenience because we are human beings and everything is in GOD'S HANDS.We are mere puppets and he takes advantage of that.

Hi dear, I got a mixed opinion for it. I don't have any adequate proof for this. Some believes yes, and some says no. With whom should I be with? Many are saying yes, because if say no, they will catch hold of. Again, if I say no, I cannot prove and if I say, I cannot prove. So, all these are just as per our faith and the way of thinking only. People say yes, and keep quite. Now there are no more hassles. If say no, there we should answer for many questions. So be yes and keep quite. But, I am in between. I cannot say anything. So I am keeping silence. Regards, Thank-s

Everything happens because it has been destined to happen and all calculations have been done by none other than God himself. Everything happens for a reason and for a purpose as you have mentioned.It is like a vicious circle.One happening leading to other happening ans so on and so forth. We are allowed to come to this universe to play our characters as conceived by God and when we enact them and complete them we are called back.
