Fate Does Not Exist (3/6).

In fact, what we popularly refer to as fate, is no fate at all. There truly is no fate. Nothing is destined to happen. Everything occurs or does not according to the Law of Cause and Effect. Some we understand and some we do not. Irrespective though, it is always in our power as to what we do with them, how we allow them to affect us, and who we become in spite of (or with) them. 

What we know as and call fate is the refusal to take charge and direct the course of our life. It is our refusal to take charge of our own destiny. It is our refusal to come up with our own goals, and press for their fulfillment. "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." (Carl Gustav Jung)

Fate is the alibi of the lazy of hands, mind, and spirit. It is the submission to life's downward and negative pull, which is the destiny of those who will do nothing, i.e. not take charge of their own course. A ship does not get to its destination by simply subjecting itself to the mercy of the winds and waves. No! No!! No!!! 

The ship knows its course and sets its sail aright to utilize the wind to its advantage, in reaching its predetermined destination. It is no prisoner to the winds and the waves. Rather, it uses them to its full advantage in achieving its set goals. It does not get to its destination by fate. No! No!! No!!! It is a predetermined outcome, ensured by the action it takes. It is an active process, not a passive one.

Fate is for the passive, no future ambition folks, not you. Your life and success are for the taking. You either take hold of and ensure it, or it will be taken from you. If you are going to be happy in life and fulfilled, it is not going to happen by chance. Nothing good happens by chance. All that is good comes from active involvement in the issues of life. You have to swim upstream, not allow life to sweep you downstream.
