Seeing Signs – Make Someone Happy

Do you ever feel like you stumble across things that were meant for you to see them? Their presence in your life has meaning that just seems too uncanny to be coincidence?

Over the weekend, I watched the movie Signs for the millionth time. There is a scene with Mel Gibson’s character, Graham that gets my brain a-burnin’ every time ~

People break down into two groups. When they experience something lucky, group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence. They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance.

I’m sure the people in group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in a very suspicious way. For them, the situation is a fifty-fifty. Could be bad, could be good. But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they’re on their own. And that fills them with fear. Yeah, there are those people. But there’s a whole lot of people in group number one. When they see those fourteen lights, they’re looking at a miracle. And deep down, they feel that whatever’s going to happen, there will be someone there to help them. And that fills them with hope.

See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, that sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?

    I’ll jump in here, I’m in group #1. I believe that most things that happen are as group #2 sees it but not everything. And a lot of what happens is a result of choices that we make, things don’t just happen to you because you have bad luck…

    Definitely group 2. However the odds are not 50-50. As Richard says, we make our own luck in many ways, so your own choices can swing the odds in your favour, or against.

    I think I could be in either group, it depends on the day, the moment or the time in my life. I am usually pretty upbeat and see the positive side of thins, but I do have my downside moments. I do believe in signs and I think we are being sent signs and it’s always good to heed the message.

  4. Lizzie Lane says:

    I’m in both groups – it depends on the situation really, but sometimes I will consider things to be a sign and sometimes coincidence. I think it also depends on my mood. If I’m in a really good mood then I’m more likely to consider something to be a sign and to act on it.

    Mostly I believe things happen for a reason. But like some of the others, the choices you make do play a critical role in keeping you on the path you were meant to trod.
