Life is about destiny, not fate.

Let’s have a broader look and instead of uniqueness, let’s try to find the similarities in our life. At a very broader scale it’s easy to say that your life is similar to me, because we may have so much in common. I agree that sometimes still our lives may not be similar by any chance. Take your time to sit, relax, think and analyze the lives of the people whom are close to you. For e.g. it can be your best friend’s life or even your dad/mom’s life. I ended up with lot of questions. Whenever a question arises in my mind, I spend most of my time on that until I find the answer. Why so much difference in our lives, yet we are so close and share a lot of things?
Some people believe in fate. I tried to understand the concept of fate. To my knowledge, Fate is “All that happens in your life are already meant to happen and there will be no change.” This is what I got from the people who believe in fate. Some may agree and some may laugh at it. We may argue, but for how long? What we need is answers and not arguments.
Fate as it seems is bound with the concept of sins and good deeds. And it is also built on rebirth or reincarnation. The reincarnation here is about getting a balance between sins and good deeds and thereby nullifying the total to get rid of further births. So if you commit a sin, you will be born again. If you do good to others, you will be born again. So how will I know to nullify the total???
This concept has a major flaw. If everything that you experience now depends on your previous birth, let’s rewind to your very first birth. What were the rules at that time? Surely there can’t be predefined events, because your account of sins and good deeds will be empty. So if you say that God lets you do whatever you want in your first life and then based on that decide on rest of your incarnations, that’s not justifiable. Because if in your first life you can do anything, and someone else in their nth birth/incarnation (n>1) is living with you, don’t what to you do affect that person’s life??? You can analyse this with many angles. This is a concept that contradicts itself in many places. May be the ones who thought to propagate this concept didn’t spend much time to design it well. So it has been a false and wicked propaganda by some power group on earth to induce fear and thereby control the mass on earth. There are so many like the above statements. People who propagate this and who blindly believe in fate say these. Dark places? It just seems to be part of the fear inducing plans.
“No man can make another's destiny and all the wishing in the world will not make it so.”
Destiny refers to an event in your future that fulfills the purpose of your birth. This too deals with rebirth/reincarnation in a way. Reincarnation here has a very profound distinction from the previous concept. The purpose of rebirth/reincarnation here is to learn things that we missed in the previous birth. So it is like we are in a school and in each grade, we apply things that we have learnt in previous grades and also learn new things. So you decide that you are going to play this role and learn these things in this incarnation.
“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped”
You may or may not be able to fulfill your destiny (wished event). So the decisions you take in your life, the path you chose for your life, controls your destiny. So the future depends on what you do now. Unlike fate, destiny doesnot say that life is always a chain reaction. It is sometimes the case of what you did yesterday determines what you do today and what you do today determines tomorrow and so on. But you can break the chain here and that makes a significant difference. It's like, you may dwell into something that may not be your destiny. But at some point in your life when you realize your destiny, you have all the freedom to make the choice and shift your path towards your destiny. The path that you may take may change. The time that you take to learn and realize can vary. But your destiny may not change. You decide your destiny when you decide on your birth/incarnation. So you have control your life. The things you see and face in your life are because you invite them to experience them.
“It's choice--not chance--that determines your destiny.”
Some may accept and some may not. It depends on what you wanted to learn in this life. The knowledge and truth around the concepts are all there in this world before our eyes. You may not see it, if you are not paying attention to it. The knowledge was never lost. It was always there, but hidden by some. I agree that the knowledge is not readily available to all even now. It should be and it will be soon. It is time for the world to make a shift. The energy is already in the air. I hope that all of us will make the shift. In the mean time, I’m just trying to discuss the information that i have, just like many others in the world who are doing this. Hope soon people have all the knowledge and come together to make this world a better place to live in, for everyone.
