In looking at the concepts of Destiny vs. Free Will, I’ve discovered I’m limiting myself by choosing to subscribe to destiny or free will.
There’s fulfillment in recognizing and honoring destiny and free will. Both exist simultaneously.
A friend of mine recently did my natal astrology chart. She was able to break down, with uncanny accuracy, major events that have happened in my life. That’s not possible if there’s only free will.
My natal astrology chart was set in motion before I made any choices as Simone. There were certain events that were set in motion for me to experience, regardless of my personal choices and free will. That’s destiny.
The concept of destiny used to make me feel powerless. It made me feel that I was a victim of God’s* plan. However, I’m finding:
God’s* plan has been set up for me to feel good, feel fulfilled, feel joy and feel blissful in moving towards and fulfilling my destiny.
So, whatever makes me feel good** is in service to me fulfilling my destiny.
Free will comes into play as to whether I’m choosing to feel good, or not. Am I choosing to focus on what I love and what makes me happy or not? When I focus on what I love, I get more of it. When I don’t focus on what I love, I get more of that. It’s been that simple.
More and more, I’ve been easily and naturally creating a life I love.
It seems there is a predetermined destiny. And, within that destiny, I have the free will to follow my joy and feel good fulfilling my destiny, or not.
Within the free will to follow my joy and feel good or not, I can believe, not believe, think or not think whatever I choose. That’s freedom. I’m free!
* I recognize there is no separation between myself and what I call ‘God’
** I acknowledge that my feeling good is done in integrity and is not a result of bringing someone unnecessary harm
