Sure, man comes through from time to time, but so does God.
Okay, folks, I'm jumpin' in here.
Interesting thread - the OP question did get me to thinking - but I had not come up with a response yet.
reading this above, RTS, WHEN did "God" come through in any provable way?
I happen to believe in collective consciousness, AND in mind over matter - as in, I believe a person can self-heal - it DOES happen. But - in the
situations you gave in the OP -
honestly, if my child were at death's door, beyond all help, I would have been making silent prayers to "God" (or the angels or whatever ethereal
powers there are out there) all along, just as I did when my father had just died and then - 3 weeks later - my HUSBAND nearly died. At the same
time, literally, we found out my brother had a pituitary tumor the size of a baby's fist that was causing him all kinds of problems - had probably had
it for years.
It was just too much. Too Much for me to handle withOUT soliciting SOME KIND of unseen help.
IF I KNEW my child was going to die, I would pray to DIE MYSELF ALSO. In fact, I probably WOULD die of "a broken heart". I don't want to survive my
children's death. NOTHING could be worse than that. NOTHING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. I don't want to survive my mother, either. And I've told her so.
The very idea sends me reeling.
Do I think prayer helps? Only if it occurs en masse - I don't think one person's prayers make much difference - but when entire groups pray for
(focus on) something, then I DO think it can impact events and outcomes.
I HAVE participated in Wiccan "healing circles" - and done energy work with the moon - even had my kids participate, and yes, we felt something -
