I beg to disagree. If everything is predetermined course of events beyond human control (Destiny), then why we even try? Whatever happens, happens, and we can’t do anything about it.
We try indeed... And I believe that it is destiny's plan too :D
I agree with SG's disagreement ... in a way ... cuz I am constantly trying to chance destiny ... sometime I succeed ... sometimes not ... not that slows me down ... no, sirry ... always fighting destiny to the bitter end ... you? ... Love, cat.
I think success or failure to win over destiny is an illusion... And only destiny/fate is real!
Guess you are a Paul Coelho and his fantasy about destiny .However if all is predetermined and destined why even move a finger? If it has to it will.
If you should move the finger or not... that is also pre-determined and planned for you - I believe :)
I do think we have to work to attain our destiny. If we only sit on our behind, we attain nothing.
Some dont work Mary... And I think that they are designed to behave that way!
Oh, I hope not... I hope this is not by design.
This reminds me of the song Que Sera, Sera,Whatever will be, will beThe future's not ours, to seeQue Sera, SeraWhat will be, will be.People say that we can change destiny but even then destiny or fate or what will be, will be.All of us have a destiny whether we like it or not.Best wishes
Finally, someone shares a similar perspective as mine!Cheers!
Without being aware of it we create our own destiny.
ONLY if it is a part of destiny too :P
To trust in our destiny is a kind freedom - i see that here
Safer one too... :)
I guess you're referring to faith in a way.. if we have a strong faith that destiny shall not deceive us - then we are good to go :)
This is an interesting perspective :)
i think because the universe is in constant tumult and chaos, destiny is where one of cognitive consciousness ends up but never predetermined. this debate of 'determinism', William James, is a valid discourse issue but i disdain that common recent cliche statement...'it is what it is'.
Hmmm.. Sounds true.. Not sure though :)
i think one's work / karma makes one's destiny & it can be changed through hard work...
Could be... You never know!
Not quite sure. To believe that whatever happens is destiny and not work toward a dream with self belief seems strange.Leo @ I Rhyme Without Reason
There are many people who dont work also... I believe thats c they are designed that way.. Destined to be so!
Your poem has sparked an interesting discussion. I believe in everything - that there is a general over-arching design, with multi possibilities, for our lives and that, under that, we are free to make our own choices. If that makes any sense. LOL. Am having trouble identifying myself on my daughter's computer - this is Sherry.
Hi Sherry... I know... I see lots of disagreements to my angle..And all I can say is that I was destined to go through this... :P
Good work... well written.ZQ
Must be great to be able to give up control like that :O
I never much cared for fate, but I do understand why some think its important. Well written.
These few words are so powerful..!!Cheers
Thanks Geets :)
I believe our destiny is what we make of it. So I guess I have to trust myself a bit. Or just make good choices
Rightly said... Thanks :)
