How many of you who may read this have heard or maybe you’re a proponent of the philosophy that there are no accidents. I’ve thought about and asked about it and read and the closest I come to understanding of it semantics?
So for instance, I have a really bad back that always hurts to a degree blurred by pain meds it still hurts until “ it goes out “ my way of saying that some odd move that I make, brushing my teeth, stepping out of a pickup truck, sneezing ; brings down to the ground and I twist into a sideways S. It “ went out “ in upstate NY and my wife had to drive me to Albany VA. It had snowed and was bitter cold so there was ice on the deck. I stepped on it and flew from the top deck about 12 steps to the bottom. I was shocked but as I was coming to I noticed my body position. I landed right leg under my left leg and butt yet I didn’t feel hurt. As I unfolded I noticed my pain from the deck was gone. It was the best treatment I ever had. Can’t figure out how to market it. But I called that “ an accident “ mostly because I didn’t plan it.
Somewhere in my “ study “ of this saying about “ no accidents “ I ran across of a few philosophies that state that everything happen for a reason. I guess that means no accidents. I’m fascinated by Nietzsche’s
Eternal return of the same although it existed was before Mr Nietzsche. But my philosophy prof in college was obsessed with Nietzsche And in his obsession was his presentation and methodology which taught us how to “ dig “. But I still have no definitive answer.
Thoughts? Lessons? Condemnations?
