What happens in your life is determined by destiny and your fate. While some believe that it is an uncontrollable factor and that they have a predisposition to act a certain way, this is not necessarily true! A great quote that holds much meaning is, "I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul," from Invictus. Anyone has the power to change their future.
Dear FoolMeOnce, Very delightful question...wonderful you are so interested as to post it on Ask...
As it happens, probably something you never really do figure out, as such...in our overly goal-oriented culture...it may be more that you just relax into what you have always wanted, and maybe you never even really knew it before, just relaxing into the flow of your own life...because (as you know) the yearning for your unique destiny is already there in your heart.
Here is how a friend of mine went about it; she was seeing a counselor because her life felt so desolate, and the counselor asked; "What are you going to do just for yourself, right now?"
And my friend replied; "On the way home to make dinner for my family, I am going to stop at the tea shop and relax with a cup of tea." And her life blossomed from there...not always easy, but step-by-step she "knew" what she needed to do.
So in your search for your destiny, may I just ask you; What are you going to do just for yourself, right now?
In my life I have said things to people that I believe will cause them to remember me someday like in the afterlife. Someday they will look back and know why I said what I did. We do not serve destiny but destiny serves us so with each chance your given take advantage of it. After all whenever you pursue your destiny you are in pursuit of greatness. right.
