DESTINY , not ‘coincidence’







Even at dusk the sun shines brightly  and still illuminates the Earth. So it is with people whose hearts are full of love towards their fellow men.  They  may give them hope and true happiness,  from the bottom of their souls...                                                                                                                                                                  


“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves” , wrote W.Shakespeare… I dare to disagree  from  ‘the bard of Avon’ – in part – because we are born  under the influence of the Heavens and this cannot be forgotten; the decisions, though, are our own responsibility. Using a metaphor: destiny is like a maritime current and we are holding the rudder of our boats. We are able to take the boat to the left, to the right , but we will never be capable to leave the current as it is stronger than ourselves.

Time is not linear… it has its own ways. Sometimes the flowing life  reminds me fractals, repeating again and again the same patterns…
How could one try to ‘understand’  life – if most of the times  it’s  difficult  to understand the way we use то  act and react to а myriad of its so many circumstances?  Facts that we would never accept – nor ‘tolerate’ previously and, after some weeks or months, we may get curiously ‘tempted’ enough  in seeing how will/would  them  be – if we’d you just ’give them a try’ …
‘Why not’ , then, ‘ give a hand’ to destiny and  ‘fly in the wings of the angels’  till a dreamy  possibility of true happiness? …
Why not ? This is a simple but great question – and the answer is only one: once I don’t believe in ‘coincidences’,  but in DESTINY…  as the lyrics of that so sweet old romantic song:  ” que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be”…  I also do believe in the pursuit of happiness. I do believe in the right we have – a real ‘duty’ to pursue it with all our strong will to be happy at the fullest. We must ALWAYS TRY… Why not?
Let’s  never give up ‘trying‘ . It can make an enormous difference  in how we’ ll live till the end !

  1. Our fate is like a movie script. Life is predetermined and can not be modified. We are born and die in the end. But we can take advantage of the medium, looking for ways to happiness.



    • MarquesK, good evening!

      I enjoyed reading the metaphor you used: “our fate is like a movie script“… And I believe in predeterminism…although I also believe we CAN and MUST do something while in this ‘dimension’.
      Your keen sense of humor with reality is also very adequate.

      Thank you so much for your comment.
      I ‘invite’ you to ‘visit’ me as much as you wish. It’ll be a pleasure reading your comments.

      I wish you a wonderful night and a GR8 Day tomorrow!
