    Question Destiny...

    Do you think we can shape and steer our lives
    or is life simply something that happens to us?

    I feel that life is something that just happens, but we can and do make choices that affect the outcome of where we find ourselves heading.

    I think we shape and steer our lives towards our karmatic destiny; man is ruled by fears, and man spends his life tryig to have those fears not materalized, but by doing so he runs into those very same fears. Your karma is what you fear the most

    There is a lot in life that you can change our have control over and then there's destiny things that happen in life that you have no control over you just take what's thrown at you and deal with it.

    Destiny will always happen but i do think the decisions you make control your life. As Fitzy said you cant do anything about destiny.

    Some call it destiny, others argue free will. For me I believe our fate lies somewhere in-between.

    We all travel along life's path when circumstances bend us in a certain direction.
    It is however only when we reach a crossroads - when a difficult decision has to be made, that defines us as to who we are.

    We may not always make the right choice, be proud of our decisions, but it is how we deal with our decisions, that shows our true worth and value.

    Destiny, luck, karma?
    Whether they exist or not, we cannot help but welcome a little help along the way.
    Predefined - I hope not.

    I think its a bit of both. Clearly there are things we can shape and steer, and then there are other things that we have absolutely no control over.

    I don't really believe in destiny in the sense of an external driving force behind our actions. I believe there is a destination, and much of life is about working on becoming the person good enough to see the path towards it.
