Let Me Ask You A Question – 7/19/17

Evelina asked me if I believe that every person has a set day and time that they will die. So, let me ask you a question…

Do you believe there is a specific day and time that you will die?  Or do you believe death is more random?

  1. I’m conflicted on this. I believe in predetermined events, fate if you will, to a certain degree. But, human free-will, and our propensity to do stupid shit, may expedite the process before our predetermined date arrives.

  2. Sometimes I think death is in our fate and sometimes I think it’s just random. But in the end, I don’t think that really matters. Random or not, death could happen at anytime so ideally, we should live every day like it’s our last. It could be.

  3. Random?, No, but random or unpredictable circumstances can bring it about. Predetermined? No, but some set factors of genetics, life experiences, history of health and nutrition, etc. can make a probabilistic (statistical) prediction possible within some margin of error. And, the closer we get to the end, particularly when serious illness intervenes, such predictions become more reliable.

  4. Geez Louise. Today’s questions is real deep! I do believe that we are all headed for a vaguely pretermined end. It’s hard to explain. I think everyone has several paths they chose from during their life. While each path takes them to different stops along the way, we all are where we are supposed to be when were supposed to be there.

  5. God gives a long life. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy. We may have our lives cut short by a tragedy, a drunk driver or something else, that is not what was intended. We or others make choices that can shorten our days. We may have a set date at the end of a long life.

  6. I believe there is a set time determined for all of us by a power greater than ourselves. For me that power is god. It’s our job to live every day like it’s our last day. Living life with gratitude, being good to others and living according to gods will.

      • It’s hard. However, here’s what I know. I have faced three different types of cancer in three years. Im still standing. The crazy thing are the events that led up led to me to be proactive to go see a doctor each time. My life has been filled with unexplained events that I attribute to being nothing short of a divine intervention and a miracle. During this process I’ve learned every day above ground is a great day. I’ve also discovered gratitude and kindness goes a long way. I don’t always have balanced days. I’m not always grateful, I’m not always kind, I’m not always hopeful either. Occasionally I’ve even wished my life was over but someone once asked “if today was your last day, is this how you would live it? Sad, depressed, hopeless, resentful, worried etc?” My answer is always no. I want to know that I lived every day to the fullest. I lived every day with integrity. I lived every day making a difference in the lives of others. I lived every with a heart filled with love. I lived every day being the best person I can be. I lived every day surrounded by family. I lived every day according to god’s will. God’s will for us is simple. To live a happy and relaxed life. Spreading love and gratitude towards others and towards ourselves. More importantly to love him above all things. Simple… yet hard to do. When god created us he had a set time for all of us. However he gave us the gift of free will. Believe me, if it’s not our time he will always intercede in ways that will have you scratching your head. I’ve experienced those times. I read the Bible. I surround myself with positive, spiritual believers who lift me up on the days I can’t, I go to church, I meditate and I pray, pray, pray. Like I said, it’s not easy but it’s possible to find some balance. If only every other day 🙂

      • Thank you for sharing. I will read your comment often for inspiration. Meeting good people like you is what I love most about blogging. Without this platform I probably would never have met and learned about your story! 🙂

      • Thank you. My heart is full of gratitude. I’m so grateful that I was able to inspire you in some way. You are an inspiration as well. There’s always a reason god brings people together. Usually to learn and grow from one another. I agree, blogging is a wonderful way to meet great people that bless our lives in such a positive way through their stories.

  7. I believe there is a specific day that someone dies. It is right after the last day they are alive. The old Irish priest at my church once told me to live every day like it’s your last because, eventually, it will be.
