Lately, I have been having conversations with 3 friends about this topic, Destiny and Destination, and they have an idea that destiny exists, that
everything has a purpose and a meaning and that it is meant to be. They use this as a way to justify things that have happened to them in their lives
and it usually involves something good, a relationship, a job, fortune, etc.
Destiny is meant to be? My feeling is that everything is a destination and random decisions made along the way affect the path we choose to take.
So, how can there be a destiny? If there is a specific path what difference does it make what decision we make? It will still be the exact same
destiny? The notion that there is a specific plan regarding every life and that a destiny is the end result seems impossible to me.
Now, that is not to say, that there are reasons for something to happen and that there are destinations with purpose, but I submit that every decision
made is affected by other decisions being made, some we are aware of and some we are not, some are man made and some are nature, but all are random.
Life is. Life happens. Where and how and why, those are left to randomness. Sure we make choices, but there are reactions for actions, cause and
effect, to many variables involved for a destiny to be.
Every path we go down has purpose, a lesson to learn from, some are dead ends, some are forced, some require adapting, some require more effort, some
lead to other paths, and if we want to make sense of something, good or bad, throwing the word destiny into the mix makes it more acceptable to deal
with, but meant to be means no matter what path we choose something is inevitable.
I thing life is a random journey with purpose, many destinations, as a human and a soul, we can learn from any path we choose or we are coerced into
