What is Fate? Is It Predetermined and Can We Change It?

Written by on November 10, 2013 in Conscious Evolution, Happiness & Humor with 6 Comments

Dolphins SwimmingSome people say fate is like destiny, because we cannot change it. I say people who believe that they cannot change fate lack the knowledge and wisdom to understand what life and reality are.

Let us explore the difference between fate and destiny, so that we can come to an understanding of what fate is and if fate is predetermined.

The definition of fate is that you can change it through perseverance and hard work whereas destiny is predetermined; therefore, it cannot be altered.

Is there such a thing as fate or destiny?

To answer this question that concerns the meaning of fate and destiny, I will need to explain to you how the future works.

Through many years of studying spirituality and science (I’m not talking about religion-based spirituality and dogmatic science), I have found many secrets about how reality works, which have allowed me to find answers to some of life’s most fundamental questions about fate. If you want to understand how reality works at the most fundamental levels, read my earlier article titled Understanding the Magic of Nature and Embracing It to Make Life Fun, Happy and Enjoyable Again.

The future is fluid-like, not stone-like. In other words, the future is not written in stone. However, there is an exception. I will explain that exception in the last section of this article.

The past, present and future are all happening simultaneously or at the same time. From our perspective, the past is something that has already happened. The present is something that is happening as you read this article. Like the past, the future is something that has already happened too. However, the future has infinite possibilities, which is why fate is not predetermined. Remember, the past, present and future are all happening at the same time. For you to understand how reality and fate work, you need to understand that the true nature of time is simultaneous.

How is this possible, you may ask? Because time behaves more like an illusion. It can speed up or slow down. More importantly, time is not linear. This is what most modern scientists fail to understand, which is why they have such a hard time understanding how reality and fate work.

Here is a video that does a great job explaining how reality works. I do not agree with everything in this video, but I do agree with its claim that matter behaves like an illusion.

The Secret Beyond Matter

Time is not constant

Scientific studies have concluded that when you travel very fast, you age slower. As you approach near the speed of light, the slower you age. This proves that time is not constant. Have you ever had a dramatic experience, such as a car accident, where time slowed down and you see your life flash before your eyes? Time slows down because your senses become hyper-sensitive during a dramatic experience, which allows you to process information faster than normal, causing time to slow down.

It is important to understand that time is not linear but simultaneous. The reason why we experience time in a linear fashion is due to the fact that we have not evolved enough to the point where we can experience time in a simultaneous state. At our current level of evolution, experiencing time in a simultaneous state would be very chaotic to us. We, as human beings, still have a lot of evolving to do. By experiencing time in a linear fashion, it allows us to experience life in a way that we can understand, so that we can evolve and learn how to change our fate.

      Before understanding fate you need to understand the law of cause and effect. Your world is not predetermined and is ever changing. Infect you create your world as you go along. If you create a good cause then you will create a good effect and if you create a bad cause then you will create a bad effect. A cause consists of thought, emotion, speech and action. So if you are just focusing on action (hard work) and not having right thoughts, emotions and speech then you are just putting 25% of the effort and hence you are getting only 25% results. You are not failing here but you are putting all your effort in one factor which is giving you limited output. In order to succeed you need to have right emotions, right thoughts, right speech and right effort (these four factors are also factors of the 8 fold path of the Buddha).

      Let’s understand fate now. Fate can not in anyway change physical aspects of your life. For instance fate can not decide how much money you can have? Since everything in this world is cause and effect fate tries to change the cause and try to bring good or bad fortune into your life. For instance, depending on a position of a planet in your birth chart you may get positive or negative thoughts and create positive and negative cause and get positive or negative effect. This is called fate. But if you are steady fest and use your will and do not allow the your thoughts, speech, action and emotions to change fate has no power over you. You can easily defeat or change your fate using your will.

    Birth chart is a collection of real things happened in earlier lives. A child may die or a train or plane face an accident . We must not believe all these . Believe own effort with attention from heart. Get result. As U sow, so U reap.
