Philosophy of Fate vs. Limiting Belief Systems

Monday, June 1st, 2015
Share Button

My philosophy is that at least 75% of the core circumstances and events in your life are predestined.

It’s a controversial viewpoint because it deflates the contention of unlimited, super-hero type free will and it presents an uncomfortable, even threatening dynamic to the self-help and inspirational speaking field.

Certainly, inspiration is like a welcome jolt of energy to help you approach life head-on, do your best, and make the most of your opportunities.

Yet, there’s nothing wrong with accepting that there is a lot in life that you can’t change.

The case for embracing the notion of predestination:

The philosophy of unchangeable destined events in everyone’s life–challenging and rewarding–is rooted in the concept that there is a vastly bigger purpose to life than personal accomplishment and financial success.

Of course, those things are vital to the progression of the human race and they’re important to me on a personal level too, but there is more to life from a spiritual perspective. In my opinion, the tough stuff in life is necessary because it forces spiritual growth, the ultimate purpose of life.

Considering the daunting reality of being regularly tested throughout your life, responding to being tested, attempting to (and not always succeeding) constructively face your unique crises in life, and otherwise being confronted with things in your life that you can’t control, exposes the New Age mantra “nothing limits you” for what it is–cheap and disingenuous.

In the real world, it’s failure, and gratitude for the lesson, that often opens the door to your optimum path. The world is replete with people who failed in one industry and went on to great success in another, or failed in one relationship and then had success later.

Finally accepting that there are supposed to be occasional insurmountable brick walls in life just may save your sanity when you go through one of life’s inescapable rough periods.

The case for rejecting the notion of predestination:

The inspirational speakers tell you that the most uncompromising prison in the world is a person’s limiting belief systems.

Surely, a pessimist who believes she isn’t worth anything and can’t do anything right won’t accomplish much. Also, I think we can all agree that you should never tell a child that he doesn’t deserve good things in life. Likewise, don’t discourage the impressionable, but don’t exploit their naiveté either, and tell them all they have to do to become wealthy is “get in touch with the abundance of the universe.”

Being mature and rational adults, let’s put aside the pandering and the crowd-pleasing platitudes. Authentic self-help methods and spirituality have nothing to do with escapism.

While occasional flights of fantasy (e.g., dream-castling) may go hand in hand with inspiration leading to great accomplishment, basing your life on pie in the sky fallacies is a recipe for disappointment.

“You can do anything–what you believe you can achieve” may be just the thing you need to hear to get through the day, but truth be told, it’s a lie.

The outright denial of predestination hints at a refusal to accept the hard, cold realities of life, even when they happen. Unfortunately, those who hold such a philosophy tend to suffer resentment, despair, depression, anger, and worse when times get tough. Rejecting the notion that immutable personal adversity exists and that there’s nothing you can do to change some things in life, such as how others treat you, sets you up for misery.

Nothing is limiting about embracing the philosophy of personal fate and unpreventable personal adversity. It shows humility and a realistic outlook on life.

Additionally, having your future predicted won’t cause you to surrender your personal power. The key conditions and happenings of your life can be mapped; they aren’t arbitrary.

Do what you must to ignite the inner flame of inspiration, such as listen to your favorite music, but just remember that failure and success are equally essential to edging you closer to the being you are destined to become.

“Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.”
C.S. Lewis

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
Winston S. Churchill

Fate: What is Destined and What is Not

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Question:
“What is destined and what is not? What about when you marry? Is that unalterable as well? What about job promotions and changes? When you get pregnant and when you give birth?

Answer:
My findings show that at least 75% of the core circumstances and events in everyone’s life are predetermined.

Basically, if the issue you’re concerned about is important, whether it’s rewarding or challenging, it is predestined.

The “why” about karma, which is directly linked to predestination, is discussed in this article.

Are you thirty-two years old, desperately wanting to get married, yet can’t seem to find a partner? Love life connections are fated. Marriage is simply a legally binding agreement, a human construct. The stress in your life about being single and not in a rewarding relationship, if significant enough, is predetermined.

It’s my responsibility to report my findings objectively: many people just aren’t destined to enjoy what is regarded by society as a mutually rewarding, life-long love life connection (i.e., marriage).

The real world is not a romantic fairy-tale. Despite appearances, how many people would divorce tomorrow if finances permitted, the social stigma disappeared, and concern about the kids wasn’t an issue? Divorce rates could very well be 80% or higher instead of 50%.

Fortunately, there are other relationship models, besides conventional marriage, that work better for some individuals.

Besides key love life connections, my findings show that significant career beginnings, peak points, and changes, as well as having a child or children, along with the other key things in your life, are all fated.

Extreme patterns in people’s comprehensive charts, symbolizing past, present, and future ups and downs in various areas of life, are easy for me to identify.

A woman won’t ever give birth if she has crystal clear patterns of infertility in the charts. In her case, the 25% area (the other 75%, as I say above, is fixed) that is open to free will can’t be used to get pregnant and have a child. Alternatively, she may be destined to adopt–if a soul is destined to come into your life in the form of a child, it will happen somehow.

Someone else may have obvious patterns of a fall from grace in his career. That person won’t reach the pinnacle of career success he desires. In his case, the 25% area that is open to free will can’t be used to overcome career challenges.

The truth about what is fated in life isn’t scary when you consider that many of the rewarding things in life are also predestined. Everyone’s predestination and timing is different.

I’m not a fatalist. My findings simply show me the cold, hard realities of life, yet I still believe you can make the most of life with your free will, within the confines of your fate.

How you view and capitalize on your fated life circumstances makes all the difference in the world.

Revealed: Astrology is a Science

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Astrology is a science, just like psychology and anthropology are sciences.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines science as, “A knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method.” It defines scientific method as, “Principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.”

Astrology is empirically based. It’s a, “…collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.” Astrology truly is a science.

What’s that you say? Horoscopes couldn’t possibly be scientific? I agree. I don’t believe in the form of astrology you’ve been exposed to either.

I do, however, absolutely believe in authentic astrology, recognized as complex protocols originating between approximately 300 BC and 1700 AD. This body of science was originally intended to outline the overall inclination of your future, and even precise circumstances involving money, career, family, partnerships, love life, sex, power, and much more. An aside, a common misconception among astrology skeptics is that, “your sign has changed…” Cyclical time cycle-based systems of analysis form the foundation for interpreting fate.

Even so, the scientific community routinely dismisses astrology as pseudo-science. Astrology is mocked, yet modern science is rife with fraud and bias.

The scientific community should get their own house in order before casting stones; modern science has serious problems.

Anonymous comment under the above-linked article: “Today’s science is the religion for the atheists. Scientists are the new Messiah who promise to deliver the ‘cure’ and ‘final truth’ for everything, day after day. Scientific world operates like Vatican, with ordained priests, with the power to ex-communicate and burn descending members and voices…”

A minority opinion in the scientific community, even though it may include a valid theory, isn’t just ignored; it can end the researcher’s career. No research grants, no job as a researcher. Follow the money–funds are usually allocated with desired outcomes, and career scientists aren’t above the dark side of human nature.

Despite the widespread skepticism of astrology in the scientific community, you don’t need conventional science authorities to tell you that astrology is a science to benefit tremendously from it. The science of astrology allows you to anticipate twists of fate so that you can mitigate challenges and make the most of your life.

Fate vs. Free Will: Fate Always Prevails

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

The fate vs. free will debate will probably continue ad infinitum, just like the creationism vs. evolution argument.

I’d like to be able to give people infinite hope by telling them that unavoidable personal adversity doesn’t have to exist, that they can override fate with their free will, but our findings completely contradict that notion. In the fate vs. free will competition, fate always prevails.

There’s nothing for me to gain by telling you that there’s a lot in your life that you can’t change, including circumstances that will unfold no matter what you do, that fate prevails in the fate vs. free will match.

Why unavoidable personal fate and adversity exist is a topic for another article, but ultimately it has everything to do with personal accountability and reaping what you sow.

An aside, it goes without saying that you’re going to tell someone with a near-fatal wound as she lies there on the ground, “You’re going to make it, hang in there.” It can be the difference between life and death.

However, delivering a you-can-do-it-fate-does-not-exist message to someone who wants to know about their future only sets someone up for disappointment and, or worse. Why not tell it like it is to help the person prepare for the predestined challenges? I’m all for inspiration, but it must be grounded in realism.

The fate-doesn’t-exist crowd proclaims, “If someone says you can’t change fate, run! They are not telling you the truth.”

There are four main possible reasons for rejecting fate in the fate vs. free will debate:

1. The practitioner is simply out of her league; she can’t predict personal fate using her superficial approach. By saying, “The outcome is up to you, nothing is set in stone,” she hedges her bets. In doing so, she becomes an inspirational coach, not someone who acts in the ancient tradition of interpreting personal fate.
2. The psychic is very talented, sees future personal adversity and predetermined circumstances, but does not want to upset his client, so he says, “It could go either way. Tread carefully and you’ll be okay,” knowing the outcome will be tragic.
3. The denier of personal fate and unavoidable adversity senses deep down inside that her overall fate isn’t very fruitful, she isn’t strong enough to come to terms with it, thus prefers to pretend she can create the life of her dreams, no matter her predetermination.
4. The person rejects the notion of personal fate, choosing to believe he can achieve anything he puts his mind to. Setting significant goals and doing everything you can to achieve them is absolutely how you should live your life, but an ego-fueled outlook on life, void of humility too often ends in disaster.

A sure way to offer an educated opinion on whether or not personal fate exists in the fate vs. free will discussion involves spending countless hours observing the key circumstances in people’s lives, in conjunction with objective predictive analysis.

Those who claim, “You always have a choice,” refuse to acknowledge the notion that people “choose” to do that which aligns with their personal fate regardless of how much decision-making power they think they have. Fate prevails in the fate vs. free will contest, but fate and free will conspire to manifest the circumstances in your life.

I’ve received many e-mails about the fate vs. free will issue; this is one of the more recent ones: “Some psychics say you can change when a prediction happens, that you can make it happen earlier by removing blocks and you can also delay it by doing things like thinking about it too much or asking the spirit world for a time frame too often which can delay it? Is that true in your opinion?”

My findings clearly show that “removing blocks” won’t allow you to cheat fate. If something is going to happen, it will happen, at the time it’s supposed to happen.

Don’t be discouraged about the realities of fate vs. free will. Within the theory of predestination is the promise of the rewarding things in your life being fated too. Although immutable personal adversity will always exist, if you believe, you can achieve it, as long as the goal harmonizes with your destined path.

Fate vs. Free Will: Total Control of Your Fate is a Myth

Monday, March 11th, 2013
Share Button

Do you believe that you are the “master of (your) destiny,” that all circumstances in your life are within your control?

Napoleon Bonaparte, early 19th century French military commander, said, “Circumstances – what are circumstances? I make circumstances.”

Napoleon’s accomplishments are legendary. He’s one of the most successful Western military leaders of all time.

However, nobody is invincible. You have to wonder what was going through Napoleon’s mind at Waterloo, his final defeat. Do you think he was content with the circumstances he made in that battle?

What about his personal demise, after a relatively brief military and political reign? He spent the last six years or so of his life in a British prison, and perished at age 51.

Success is largely about setting realistic goals, along with persistence and discipline to make those goals a reality.

Sometimes, you have little to no interference and success is attainable. Other times, no matter how hard you work, external variables beyond your control prohibit accomplishment. As the saying goes, the journey is more important than the destination. It’s what you learn along the way.

I believe that you have complete free will on the other side, prior to incarnating in bodily form. I also believe you (your personality) must endure limits to your free will as a human being because if you did have absolute free will, you would never learn the lessons you’re here to learn.

Acknowledging the legitimacy of predestination, including unalterable personal adversity, engenders humility and a realistic outlook on life. It isn’t an excuse to avoid assertively taking action every day to fulfill your dreams, nor is it an excuse to possess a victim consciousness.

More on fate vs. free will and the secret reason behind success and failure.
