Journey 137: FATE

Fate to a man is destiny to mankind. One attribute of how fate works in us is best seen by our actions for others which define it in its entirety. We can always, as a matter of survival, alter the course of events and in so doing, correcting the past and re-writing history however, there is one thing we can never change, the way the future comes and in what form it shall come before us. Some call that pre-destination but I shall only dwell on what our respective responses shall bear for us as a result of how we responded to the future.

People will certainly place their luck on years, zodiacs, naysayers and doomsayers too, but truly, one can only be certain when one is in deep reflections of the past, learning it by self-flagellating instead of self-aggrandizement, correcting by accepting instead of denying it, moving on by forgiveness instead of hubris and much more, overcoming oneself not for greatness but for the glory of the ONLY ONE.

Similarly speaking, fate is like a leaf trying to coil and recoil in a twig, no matter how you bend them to conform to what you thought is necessary it will find its way to you. So, it’s on how you respond to fate as it comes that makes the difference. I believe in man’s destiny but not in pre-destination and passes judgment to no one for I shall also be judge by the same yardstick I use in judging others.
