Do we have control over destiny or…?

What does destiny mean and how does it control our lives? Do you feel you have control over your destiny? Alternatively, do you think you are being led by destiny, which is not in your hands?

Is man a piece of floating wood in the ocean?

Most times I feel like a piece of floating wood in an ocean, thrown away by nature (through waves, another one of its creations) in whichever direction it pleases. Nature created me without my will, it places the thoughts and desires in my mind which move me to act in a particular direction and then sometimes, it kills those desires.

New desires germinate in my mind and I act on those because they propel me towards a happy outcome. I don’t determine the outcome, I don’t determine the desire. Everything that exists in nature is necessary for it to exist. There doesn’t seem to be a any control over destiny. Man is just a small piece in the entire whole, where earth itself is a small part of the solar system. 

The other times, I am an arrogant fool, to believe that I control my desires and the consequences of my actions, forgetting that the world is an organized whole, where reality is the only answer and no alternative history or future was possible.

Where does the answer about destiny lie?

What do you think?

We need to build self-awareness and that of the universe we belong to, in order to answer some of life’s most important questions.
