Fate and Free will
Much has been talked and said about the role of fate and its comparison with free will in our lives. The debate that usually goes around is that if everything is pre determined and pre destined then what role a free will has to play. Does a free will have any significance when everything has been decided before for us? But before talking about both free will and fate we need to understand individually what the two terms are exactly about.
WHAT IS FATE?
Fate basically is a faith that your destiny is planned before and everything that you come across has some reason behind it. There is some occurrence of events by a supernatural force which are unavoidable and inevitable to escape from. Whatever good or bad that has been decided for you, you have to face it.
WHAT IS FREE WILL?
Free will is basically a choice that has been given to individuals to select their own ways on how to deal with their lives and what paths to choose to reach their certain objectives. Basically the conscious choice that we make without any constraints is termed as free will.
DEBATE OF FREE WILL AND THE ROLE OF FATE:
Through our free will at times, the factors that we choose for making our decisions are unknown and uncontrollable. They sometimes have indirect and most of the times result in unpredictable consequences. People term such occurrence as fate and think that whatever has happened is the result of some unknown force and controlling that force is not possible.
It is often said you cannot choose your tests in life but you can choose how to deal with them and whatever happens in your life is the result of your own deeds. There are many who are of the belief that we are just like instruments in a grand design and free will is not something that exists. A predetermined force is at work and we are just tools relying on how we are moved.
However the truth is that both free will and fate co exist with each other. Both are equally there. Fate is in the shape of different paths that have been given to us and their ultimate end is decided before. While the choice of selecting our path is in totally our control. That is the free will .Its up to us which way should we adopt and which path we run on to. Where we lead with our choice is fate. We can’t totally deny the existence of both fate and the free will.
Consequently you can make most of your fate through free will. It is impossible for a man to change the course of events but which events to choose are in his total control. To escape the core of destiny is impossible. There are challenges in the form of free will while there are rewards for the challenges you face in the form of your fate. Good or bad , it both can be
