Fated To be Free
Fate, is it fact or fiction? Do we believe that we are completely free
to do what ever we want and that we alone create our destiny, or are we
fated to follow some decided path and no matter what we do we are
predestined to live out our life according to someone's plan? Now maybe
the bigger question is how do we justify which way is right and which is
wrong. I believe that each person develops their own opinion through
personal encounters and experiences, and the only correct path is the
one that the person believes in and lets that person live their life to
The people who truly believe in the whole concept of fate are the ones
who have it easy. They can look at any situation and say that the
outcome, whatever it may be, is because of fate and was meant to be.
These are the people who can go skydiving with no fear because they
believe that if it is their fate to live, great, if it's their fate to
die, well hell it was meant to be. They take the responsibility of
their life out of their own hands and put it into the hands of a mystic
force called fate. Now that is one hell of a concept. Personally, if I
'm going to do something crazy and stupid, I will be sure all the proper
precautions are taken and not count on fate to handle all the details.
Then there are the people who believe that their life is completely in
their hands and they themselves mold their destiny through their choices
and actions. To me this opinion requires way too much worrying and
stress on their part if they truly practice it in their daily lives.
But it also provides a sense of freedom and independence to do with your
life as you please and live your life how you want it. To me, these
types of people generally don't take as many risks as the others because
they are worried about the consequences that might damage the life they
have created. It is like when you build a pyramid out of playing cards.
You pick out the best looking cards, the strong and secure ones, and are
always ever so careful placing each pair on so that you don't knock down
the entire thing. A life like that is what heart attacks and ulcers
feed on. I just think that life is too short to worry about all of
life's little things.
Now what I believe in is a little different. I believe in fate very
much so, but also in living our life freely to make our own decisions to
mold our life. I conceive fate not as some imaginary mystic force, but
a very alive power in all our lives, God. I don't want to sound preachy
and I don't think God decides everything, but I do believe that certain
things happen for a reason. I sense that we are free to live out our
lives how we see fit and that we help to shape our destiny through our
actions and our experiences, but I strongly believe in another force out
there intervening from time to time and makes things happen for whatever
reason. This is where the concept of fate comes in.
Whether you live your life throwing caution to the wind or like a house
of cards, you should simply live your life out to its fullest and not
take either belief to an extreme. There is a healthy median out there,
so find it, live it, and love it. Live out live however you see fit and
govern your actions accordingly, because after all it is your life and
you only got one.
