Destiny 21/09/2006

What exactly is destiny? No it isn’t the photo I posted along with this post. That was just to give the blog a little colour along the way. Destiny is the inevitable event that is to occur. Do we have a choice in our destiny? I would like to think yes. Not to say that some things are out of our control and therefore will happen. I think about it this way…a man walking by on the road and sees a pear on the next door neighbour’s tree and decides to brave the wall the dog and the neighbour’s gun for the one pear. He can choose his destiny in this case… knock on the gate and ask the man if he can have it because he is really down and out and hungry or he can jump the wall getting cut by the spikes, get bitten by the dog and get shot by the neighbour. In a way the results of our lives are due to the choices we make along the way. The accidents we have are because we turned right instead of left at some point before. Kind of eerie if you think about it 😀

  6. Scratchie, the way I look at life, is that God has a ‘blueprint’ for each of us. However, that blueprint is not written in stone. By action (or lack thereof) and conscious decisions and choice, we can modify that blueprint and help to make things that we would like to occur in our lives come to being. On the other hand, we can also avoid certain occurrences by our actions. For instance, when I deceided that I had wished to do medicine, I did what I had to do in order to help make it a reality. Was it part of God’s plan for me? That may be difficult to answer categorically, but I would like think yes, as I think that since I have been a medical practitioner I have impacted positively on most of my patient’s lives.

    Having said all of this, there is this business of destiny and there is lots over which we do not have control. Decent topic.
