I’ve heard people say that no matter what one does, one’s fate will always be the same. This group of thinkers might even suggest the existence of a master plan, with a prewritten script for everyone. Well, that is rubbish! (I would use the word crap, but I’m feeling a bit British today).
I am very eclectic in my beliefs, but I can not accept anything suggesting the gods lack imagination. I can compromise—a little—and say that the gods might set out different paths for us, and then sit back to watch what we’ll do. But what kind of Supreme Parent would plan a life of chaos and suffering for a child? Would you? Didn’t think so, and you are not even a Supreme Parent.
If the world was a perfect place, then I would be inclined to believe the gods made it all happen. But think about it, if you had the chance to write the story of your children’s lives before they lived it, would they die of AIDS, cancer, shot by a stranger, trapped in their own minds…? No, they would be perfect everlasting lives shared with you—the one who loves them most.
I can’t share the story behind my latest outburst, but I can tell you this: last night a person dear to me said, “I have no choice. It’s just the way things are. I can’t do anything about it. Nobody can’t help me. It’s just the way my life is and always will be.” These statements worried me to no end. Not because I believe them to be true, but because this dear person thinks they are.
As suggested on Pagan Blog Prompts, when referring to “The Secret or the books by Esther & Jerry Hicks on the Law of Attraction.”I believe
“we create our own lives. We attract to ourselves what we want through our thoughts and actions.”
I also believe that there are times when the challenge of living is too much to face alone, so we must seek help. For when Fate is pushing and pushing toward a path you don’t care to follow, there is no better weapon than the strong arm of a person who believes in you; a friend to remind you that YOUR destiny is YOURS to shape.
What do you think? Are we chips on the Creators fixed game, or players with skills/tools to affect the outcome of our lives?
