“He was not bone and feather but a perfect idea of freedom and flight, limited by nothing at all.”
― Richard Bach,
You are now many years into the present life and fairly experienced about the nuances of life. None of your other experience is more than your experience about the life.
You now know about the words like fate, destiny, luck etc. What I mean by knowing these words is not the literal meaning, but relevance and applicability of these words in our different walks of our life.
How many of your wishes got fulfilled and how many are not?
If you apply the ratio I am sure unfulfilled wishes far outwit the fulfilled wishes. I am also sure you have made an equal effort or sometimes, even more efforts on fulfilling your unfulfilled wishes & yet you couldn’t succeed.
Here we use the words like fate, destiny or luck (bad luck).
But the reality is everything is about fate, destiny, and luck. Your fulfilled wishes and your unfulfilled wishes, both.
“Destiny waits alike for the free man as well as for him enslaved by another’s might.” Aeschylus – Greek Philosopher – 525 BC.
The above quote is not only interesting one, but also revealing very important life lesson.
If everything is destined, why not live our dreams and why remain enslaved of your employer or your insecurity?
Do what you want to do without fear or worry. The result is anyway is not in your hand in either case, if you worry and remained enslaved of your unwanted circumstances and self-imposed slavery or do not worry and live your passion.
Whether you do your 9 to 9 job or live your passion, destiny will reward or punish you equally. Knowing the rules of the life early on can make your life more liberated and less fearful.
Therefore live compelling life rather than a compelled life, live your life rather than for others be it boss, money or any other illusionary goals.
Many rich people reason and camouflage their en-slavery to money with lofty social goals like ‘we are giving employment to many’, they are but is giving jobs their personal goal in life? No. It is only making money.
We, employer and employees, all have enslaved us with one or other things. Some are not aware about this and some believe they can’t do anything about it. But the reality is all of us can free ourselves from this unwanted slavery, we pursue the whole life.
Believe in destiny, it will work irrespective of what you do, so why not do what you like, love and passionate about without worrying?
“Life either a daring adventure of nothing.” Helen Keller.
We all have to believe in her because;
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” Steve Jobs.
Believing in destiny is very empowering as it liberates us from our fear and allows us to pursue our dreams.
Are you happy with what you are doing with your life? If the answer is NO, what are you doing about it TODAY?
