Destiny is like going on a hike that is a loop trail. At the start of the trail, you have to choose if you will walk the loop clockwise or counter clockwise, do you turn left or right?
Your soulmate, for example of destiny, is somewhere ahead on the trail. You don’t know where or which direction they’re going, but they are on the trail.
Your destiny was to meet your soulmate today, but you have to choose your direction. If you choose left, you will go in the opposite direction of your soulmate and your paths will cross. If you turn right, you will go in the same direction and you will never meet. They will reach the end of the trail and get in their car go home, alone.
The principle of destiny is that there is a God, or being, which created us, and the purpose of our existence is for us to either find or avoid that God. We have freedom of choice so that we can choose to find that God or not. Destiny is merely opportunities. It is up to us and, one could say luck, as to which choices we make to determine the outcome and experiences of our life.
If you believe that destiny is inevitable, you are denying the principle that humans have freedom of choice. A human being is given that one single difference than any animal, which is, that we are not controlled by instincts alone. We can choose what we will do.
Without the ability to choose, whatever has created us, which we can assume has also created the principle of destiny, would have made our existence a total waste of time, since it would already know what’s going to happen. All the fun would be taken out.
The question then becomes; how to be able to make the right choice when destiny presents us with a left or right decision?
In order to choose wisely, we need to remove our ego and self-centred desires, because it is those desires which confuse the mind and prevent it from making wiser choices. We must develop our intuition through mastering our ego and relinquishing our emotional baggage and fears, to be more selfless.
Practicing meditation or other techniques to make your mind calm enough to hear your intuition, is a way you will be able to know what the right choice is every time that destiny presents itself.
With the practical concepts of ethicalism.org or any other ways in which you can become a stronger more self-confident person, you will find you intuition grows simultaneously and your destiny starts to become a much happier life.
