    Is your future already written

    Mostly. Karma - the law of Cause and Effect; Action and Reaction, is generally quite binding. The farmer tills the soil, puts down manure; waters it or wait for the right season. He does his best in a good or great environment and finally gets a bumper harvest.

    The bad farmer reaps a different result. Destiny is Karma of past and present and indeed some future bearing fruit, that which is taking place in our lives. (Prarabda Karma). Sanchita karma has to some extent already occurred and will continue to occur but has not yet borne fruit. We sow in our lives, actions, good or bad, for future reaping.

    God is, however, an omnipotent God and is above His laws. I'm sure that we've all met many rigid and narrow people in the workforce. But God is not like that. When the devottee is sincere and the will indomitable, Grace can and does interfere on behalf of the devottee.

    If one has total aspiration, that burning and intense cry for a higher Light, a more abiding and fulfilling life; a belief in Grace, then it can enter and transform one's situation with the Will of the Divine.

    “There is a world which is infinitely higher than the planets. From there we can easily create, and we can also delete anything in our fate. If we delete what is there, then we can add something new. Your fate can also be adjusted by the Grace of the Supreme. If a seeker is very highly developed and gets considerable Grace, either from God or from a great Spiritual Master, then the planets cannot influence that seeker.

    Even if one is an ordinary seeker, if the Master intervenes, then the planets cannot do anything…. God’s Grace can change anybody’s fate. This Grace is almighty; it changes the occult possibilities and transcends the laws of astrology, which are God’s cosmic laws” -Sri Chinmoy.

    Not to (you). Every day is an unpredictable surprise which contains opportunities to choose a variety of options presented to us.
    Having said that if you believe in an "all knowing God" then he (already knows) what choices you're going to make.
    Imagine being at a party where there is a can of Coke and a can of Pepsi. Someone who "knows you" knows you prefer Coke and ultimately that is exactly what you choose.
    Was the future already written because (they) know what you like?
    Couldn't you have just as easily said today I'm going to switch up?
    Whatever you decided there was still a (choice) that YOU made.
    Just because someone knows or predicts what you're going to do doesn't mean (they) are controlling your destiny.
    Even religious believers believe man has "free will".
    Life is a (personal) journey.

    Aside from the fact that on a long enough time line survival rates are zero, no.

    There are some people who strongly portend that the future is written/preordained & that there is nothing to do to alter the future in any way, shape or form.  They are of the school, que sera, sera-what will be, WILL BE; the future isn't ours to see.

    There are people who feel that the future is the luck of the draw.  They contend whatever happens was meant to happen for good or bad.  They feel that the future was somewhat supernaturally predestined.  They are of the school that there is good &/or bad luck which "rationalizes" or "explains" their life circumstances & whatever so-called success & failure they may have.

    There are others who strongly assert that they make their own destiny/future.  They contend that people's futures are the result of the action (positive, neutral, &/or negative) which were taken in the past.  They maintain that people have negative outcomes because they thought & acted negatively & conversely, people have positive outcomes because they thought & acted positively.  They are of the school that for an action, there is a ......REACTION-result!
