It is proven in some cases in my life that there is a benevolent presence among us. There have been cases where I should have been dead but miraculously avoided death. I can't say that I saw angels or the hand of God reach down and save me. I searched long and relentlessly for an explanation to why I was not gone from this realm. The only thing that I could come to was that. God does exist just not in a manner that we can explain. It is clearly quoted throughout history that God is everything and is in everything. There for we can not place him in one perception. Human nature forces us to try and put an identity to God. To create a point of reference to give us a fuzzy feeling that we know what God is.
The way that I see it is that God works through variables in the physical plane. For example you are driving down the road late at night. As you round the corner a deer is standing in your lane. It was to sudden for you to react. But "coincidently" the dear just happened to be inches from impact , and you slide past. Most people would write that off as being lucky. I personally see it as God changing the variables to answer your prayer.
Most people are under the impression that a miracle has to be some grand display of supernatural power. A miracle can be as subtle as a distraction, keeping you from walking into a bus.
Why is it that we have to prove the differences in science, religion, and spirituality. To me it makes more sense to see that they are all in connection with each other. Basically God is everything and everything has a pattern to it's existence and evolution. There for science would be the tools of creation that God uses to aid and create.
I agree on almost all points - except that (In the deer case) I believe the variables were as meant to be, and not altered.
I would also like to add a few factors of my own. - God is oneness, and I don't mean any fixed-God either. We are all God, in part (like cells in a body), we each exist slightly out-of-sync with each other - therefore God can be in all places at once. I don't believe that God is also seperate to the sum of It's parts. Without any one of these parts - God is incomplete - Therefore each and every part must exist eternally, for God to exist eternally - They may well appear to decay or die and pass into the past, but, ultimately, they must re-occur, in the same location as before and in every possible other location. I will be you, am you and have been you - And every component of everything there is, was, and will be - from everlasting to everlasting. And you (the same) and so on, forever.
There are volumes of parameters involved with this concept - And over time I will formulate them and Thread them, for all to either enjoy or tear to pieces.
One thing I'd like to add before I sign out is this - I am in heaven already.
Where are you? By the way, I mean "It doesn't get any better than this" Not a place with pearly gates, angels and whatever other fantastically devised notions "Heaven" is wrongly, attributed with. " Heaven" to me, is a state of mind.
Thank you, and have a splendid day.
