A fatalist is someone who believes that the future is laid out and that we are powerless in changing it. Believing in inevitable fate or not, there are few that admit that they confess to such a disturbing train of thought. In actuality a lot of people suffer from such debilitating ideas. Allthough no religious system oblige you to be powerless in molding your own future, there exists a number of proverbial sayings that do very little to help carry humanity onwards, or that help you or any other living, breathing human being. «It is all in the hands of the Lord». «Everything happens for a reason». More mundane variants of the same colour, «I am too old to change anything now», «it has already gone too far», «why should I do something when nobody else does».
Life can be perfect or not quite so perfect but at the root of any departure, any deviation from what we desire, there is always change. Nothing ever stays the same over time. Things improve or they worsen, and you can never reach your dreams if you do not have dreams.
We train ourselves to accept things like they are, even when they are not good at all. When there is something we don’t quite understand, or that we have a hard time confronting, we invent excuses and explanations. We name things as «normal» that in reality are not normal at all. Criminality is raising in society. Normal? What do we expect, there are poor and hungry people that do not see any other possibilty than stealing. Or, who are too lazy or downtrodden to find an honest job. Is it their destiny to rob and steal? Well educated people as well, can’t resist a shortcut to lay their hands on money that doesn’t belong to them. That the poor and lazy steal we understand as normal, that the wealthy and educated do it is strange even if a strong position makes you able to steal more and in much clever ways. Who invented corruption and temptation? God or the Devil? Be it either one, is it your destiny to follow that path?
We always have something to say about where we end up. That way there is no predictable outcome for any life. You may have been born rich only to become poor, or the reverse, born poor to become rich. Opportunity strikes, but you make the real difference. The most common cause of disability in or society is not, as one would think, illness. It is depression in its various forms and even if it makes a person happy to receive money, the cure for depression in most cases is not related to money at all. If you want to be depressed there is no lack of reasons to be so. Your life may be completely different from what you want it to be. This can become so tricky that depressed people don’t even know what they want their lives to be like. The most common response is something around, «I want peace and quite». I am sorry, peace and quiet is for dead people. Life is passionately, reverbatingly, noisy disorganized and marvellous.
Good or bad our destiny? So what is there to do about it? In order to organize anything for the better it is always needed to see what is there, see what needs to be done, and which change will predict a «destiny» more to our liking. In order to understand anything it is necessary to see things as they are, without explanations and excuses. There can be no «becauses» or «buts». If you are fat you are fat, not chubby or a bit overweight. If you have «no go» in your life, you are not just passing a bad period. Things will improve when you improve them or when you prepare the way for improvement. So your destiny was to be in bad shape for a while. It is not important. The important thing is that change is here, this moment and that, tomorrow will be allowed to be much better. Whatever path your destiny have laid out for you, make sure that it is the path you like.
1) Who are you? 2) What are you doing? 3) Whom are you doing it for? 4) Which result do you expect from that? Work this over until it is clear what it is that you want to do with your life. Don’t forget to take care of your body in the process, it will be useful in order to accomplish that which you decide to do.
Something can always be done, and to do the right "something" it is important to know causes and be sure to handle the correct problem.
