Fated Or Chosen ??

Lately I’ve been mulling over quite a bit over the role of choice versus fate in our lives. Are we the ones who make  conscious choices when it comes to choosing a career, a life partner or friends ? Or it is all pre-destined, just meant to be and we simply delude ourselves by claiming that we choose  our path in life ?? This is a debate that  has raged on in my mind for ages..  A while back I was discussing it with a friend and we’d ended up deciding that destiny gives us a framework within which we make choices..is it all that simplistic ?? I don’t think so …can you help me get a clear perspective on this???

  1. Not sure on this one, but I believe our destiny changes by our ‘karma’, and so it is basically a thing of what we do is what we get. Bit somethings, are definitely ones that we cannot consciously control!

  2. well i strongly believe in destiny..HE has it all planned for us(and the best i would like to believe)HE guides us! its we who make ourselves happy by thinking that we have made our choices:)

  3. I think its the choices which make us what we are… in the early years be it the choices of the parents but after a certain age, it is we ourself, who define what we become… and we should take complete responsibility of this burden and enjoy maadi 😉

  4. wanna add one more… 🙂
    “Up to a point a man’s life is shaped by environment, heredity, and movements and changes in the world about him; then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. … Everyone has it within his power to say, this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow.” — Louis L’Amour
