The destination, product of man
Many have heard and talked about fate, but really what we mean?, that is, what is destiny? What is the destiny of man? Is the destiny of man already written before it existed? We all understand by destiny to a force superior to us that makes us experience experiences or situations that we cannot control or plan, perhaps that is why when organizing or planning a common day, it does not sometimes wait for it and that is why We use the "destiny" to justify ourselves by not having a concrete explanation.
William Shakespeare ‘Destiny is the one who considers the cards, but we are the ones who play (1400).’Destiny as defined by the Royal Spanish Academy is the chain of events considered as necessary and fatal or a circumstance that can be favorable or unfavorable for someone or something, therefore, destiny can be understood as something that is by come, something uncertain, uncertain because we are not prepared for what is coming, many times or if not most of the time.
We will not know that it will be one to the next day, a week later, a month later, that’s why it’s an uncertain. Let us focus a moment on the law of cause and effect, this says that everything you do will have a result is good or bad, nothing exists and nothing happens because if, just as nothing is created from nothing, everything has a reason, That is, a cause, and if there is a reason or cause, it is because it was already established that it was going to be, just as they say everything that happens to you in the present is what has been created in the past, and everything you are Creating in the present, it is what will happen to you in the future, this is also known as the boomerang effect.
Then here comes a great question, if destiny is already written by the acts that you do then we are not really free, since freedom is the faculty of people to choose their own way of acting, then if the Being human is free because you cannot decide on what is coming, about its future, since the human being already has its destiny as it acts. Seeing destiny from a more spiritual or religious point, in Eastern or Western cultures, fate was believed from the Tao of Chinese Confucianism or the Karma of Hinduism.
But for Christians or Catholics, destiny is created by God, since before we existed a plan for us in the book of life was already written. For the Greeks, fate is a superior force, and was personified by the goddess Moira. The Pharisees accepted fate long later, although the philosophers of those times did not need the Pharisees to ensure that the world follows certain laws and that these may have effects. Or that the world was governed by its physical laws, or by a supreme being.
In the same way there are people who attribute something more psychic to destiny, that is, what you think is what you attract, what you want is what will happen to you or because the stars have been aligned, and other things. I will allow myself to take this example that I read there are people who say: the doctor has fought my aunt of a deadly disease, giving him ten more years of life. The doctor did saved her aunt, but saving her did not impose himself before the order of nature, she acted as nature wanted her to act. It is clear that aunt did not decided to be born where she was born and much less suffering from a certain disease.
The doctor had to be in the same city as aunt and he had to prescribe what the curo. That was already destined to happen. There are many people of being limited to believing this kind of thing, if destiny exists or not? If there is any cause and effect law, whether or not it is written? This last question is a bit difficult to answer after the above already, that everything that happens to us is the result of our actions or by the existence of a God who takes care of us, both ideas that can have the same weight , but I think there are two types of people.
Which are carried away by a slightly more fantasy world in which our destiny is written by a divine entity, and by other people who think that everything that happens is as a result of what has been done until that moment, (being able to relate this Idea with that of karma, which tells us that things happen to us according to those done before or against the peace and harmony of people, and other living beings.) Therefore, it cannot be said that it is written in some way, but if you are aimed at these actions.
I can conclude by taking into account my initial questions that the destiny of the human being is going to write it day , there you could say that it is already written. For my part, I think that destiny is something inevitable and almost always done by us, that is, by our actions, as the law of cause and effect says, most of the situations are inevitable. The destination itself is created by ourselves because as the theory of chance mentions "every action entails a reaction,".
