i mean to say, we have all the what if's in life...we all made mistakes and we all had wished only if we can turn back time to fix things so it can work out the way we want it to work out... now it got me to the thinking that, even if we turn back time and rearrange the mistakes maybe if its destined to happen then it will happen...not the same exact way it happen but eventually it will find ways to make it happen... i had been thinking of the what if's in my life lately, that if i cold turn back time and rearrange it so my daughter wont die and my younger brother wouldn't commit suicide but somehow i came to the point thinking that ts willed to happen and that another what if i did turned back time but since its willed what if it find its way to make it happen one more time... I might be crazy thinking all this things right now...but how about you? did you ever think this way? or did it ever cross your mind that if its willed then its willed to happen?

Hi friend Angel_of_charm Please look at the universe. Everything is happening as it should happen. Sun will rise in the east all the time. No one can change it. Full moon will add serenity only once in a month. So, everything is pre planned and well executed. I'm sorry to know about the personal losses. I also had to meet similar situations in life. but we have to accept it. The reality is that we are nothing but powerless actors in the stage known as Universe. Some supreme energy directs the play. We can't question or challege that energy. This is the harsh reality. Call it destiny or a stage act, we are helplessly controlled by the omni powerful director who knows why and what HE is doing. We can't see future. I have lost my elder sister recently. I was so shocked. But now I think it is a blessing for her that she is no more to see how miserably her son is spending time. It was pre planned for her son to be in distress and my sister was lucky enough not to witness the plight of her dear son. So I believe we are nothing but powerless players controlled by supreme energy. We should learn to accept it. There is no other way out. Take care of yourself.

well said tapnaroy.. We cannot change things to happen in the same way we cannot play god for our lives. Have you ever happen to watch TIME MACHINE movie? The man there wants to change the event that were happening to his loveone. But no matter how and when they fall in the track of time the girl were destined to die.. So let it be. Like tapnaroy said...we are nothing but powerless players controlled by supreme energy.. Let God do what He have destined us to be..and be thatnkful for the wonderful blessings that He bestowed upon us. Sorry for the losses. Cheer up!

I really feel for you ,time is going on and on you don't have control over it. But you can make your destiny,it's true we can't get back to past and correct our previous mistake. Ups and downs are part of life, we do commit mistakes and we should have to learn from that. Life is a lesson there is no right or wrong, we came here empty hands and go with same.

Well, with things that have already happened that I may regret, there is nothing I can do to change it. SOmetimes I fret over it, but I try to keep a positive mindset that whatever happened must have been the best possible thing to get me where I am today and make me who I am today. Even if I wish there were certain things I could change, I am not sure I would change even the absolute worst thing because I love my life right now, and it might not have happened if anything, even something small and seemingly insignificant, was changed.

I reckon bad things happen for a certain reason, as there is always a silver lining. The silver lining is the reason why bad things happen.

Our lifes pathway was created by God before we were ever born.We all walk the pathway of life that he created for each of us. It was left up to us to either follow it or not.When it was time for one to be called back home to him he choose who it would be.He put us on this earth to live and learn and when it was time for to be called home than our learning was done. Time for others to learn from the mistakes that they learned from growing up and try not to make them mistakes a second time in their lifetime.What ever will be will be That is Gods way. As I said before we all travel lifes pathway that was created before we were born. When we have leartned all we can Than we to will be called home to live with God.

I try not to think too much about destiny or "WHY" things have happened the way they have, just learn from the experiences and try to make the future better. But then again if we could go back in time and change something from the past, how do we know it will lead to a perfect future? we don't, we would probably keep going back in time so often to change the past that we would forever be stuck in time. Perhaps our current life is the result of something we changed int he past in another life? think about it

Life is not about what if, rather it's about, will.. What will happen will eventually happen, no matter how long it is.. Even if we can turn back tiem and change things round, we are just delaying time for ourselves, making us feel better, giving ourselves false hope too.. Or maybe, we really managed to change things around, but things will only get worse for us and not better.. Thus it will be good to let thing remain the way they are ^_^

i will tell you a story that happened many years ago during the life of prophit soliman.. prophit soliman as many know god gave him some extra powers and many things that no one have uptill now..he can talk to el-jin and talk to animals..god gave him the power to control the wind and many more things so time wasn't a matter with him and place..he can travel at no time to any place..read more about him if you are intersted:) well the story was that during a meeting with his men some one entered the place they were in..he stared his eyes at another man in the place..he stared it too much that the man asked prophit soliman when this person left the place whom this person and why he stared at him like so..prophet soliman told him that this one who stared on him was the angel who is responsible for taking lives (god is sending him to take out souls )..so the man get terrified and asked prophit soliman to make the wind take him to india ( it was very far from the place they were in..may be the farrest place )..prophit soliman did and ordered the wind to take him to india..in the next day the person who stared came again and then prophit soliman asked him why he stared at the man the dau before?! the person answered that god told him to take this person's life after 1 minute in india..and he was amazed how to take his life after 1 minute and he is in another place!!..so when he go to india to take his soul he found him as prophit soliman ordered the wind to took him there as he wanted!! this story was told by our prophit muhamed.. the conclusion of this true story that no one can prevent the distiny from happenning..it is something god wrote before the creation of people and noway they can move away from it.. so live your current life and forget the past..it will never return and you could never prevent it from happenning..

You are right there are lot of what if in our life. I also agree things happening to our lives is destined for us to have and to do because everything has its own reason why. We may like it or not and if it comes along all we have to do is to go with the flow and manage it carefully. If it didn't turn out of what we expected to, then maybe it wasn't really meant to and there's really something different awaiting for you better than the one you expected.

Things that happen in our life doesnt only happen because of destiny. Sometimes part of it is also base on the choices and decisions we made. I do believe that every person has a choice and we are the one who make our own destiny. But things around us we cant actually control it. What happen with your brother and daughter you are actually not in control of the situation. Things that happen on other people is beyond our control. We can somehow help but we cannot be sure that it will change things for them. You can only make a change for your own destiny.
