Destiny, Karma, Fate, & Creating Your Reality: The Bulk of Your Life is Predestined, Good and Bad
Unique levels of unavoidable personal adversity exist for everyone and they are discernable in comprehensive numerology and astrology charts.
This finding of ours greatly clashes with modern, New Age spirituality.
As most anyone will admit, life can be unpleasant at times, but you can’t just wave a magic wand, call on the “Lords of Karma,” or read a best-selling, inspirational, spiritual book and make the distasteful parts of life (i.e., your challenging personal karma) disappear. You must face your own personal challenges squarely because that is how you attain soul growth and balance your spiritual debts.
There exists a “you can be anything you want to be--just believe you can” attitude that permeates not only New Age doctrine, but most of Western society. It’s easy to wholeheartedly embrace this unless you’ve seen the recurring comprehensive numerology and astrology patterns linked to real life circumstances, clearly indicating that no one can be or have anything they want, unless that desire fits within their personal fate.
Whether you believe it or not, your life is intimately connected to the cyclical nature of life, based on your moment and location of birth, along with your other birth data. We’ve found that at least 75% of the main circumstances and events in everyone’s (even those who don’t believe in destiny or karma) lives are predestined: what was, is, and what will be is symbolized by the hidden rhythms and predictable cycles that allow for empirical scientific assessment and projection.
We Fell Into The Same Trap
Before knowing any better in the late 1980s, we fell into the “if you believe, you can achieve anything” trap. Today, we firmly believe (after countless hours of empirical research) in the “if you believe, you can achieve--if it fits within your destined path” concept.
Not being able to have or become everything you want can be difficult to accept. What’s the best way to deal with dreams that may be out of your reach? Aside from acceptance, the better you know yourself the more your desires will be aligned with your karmic blueprint and personal fate, and the more likely you will be to achieve your goals.
Knowing yourself goes far beyond the limits of your academic testing scores, musical and culinary tastes, or physical abilities. Getting to know your true self also involves your subconscious mind (as seen through handwriting analysis, for example), along with your spiritual heritage which includes your karma and fate, as sought, for example through meditation and, or past life regression.
There exist New Age writers today who claim that some people have incarnated this time around with minimal karma, and therefore their fate can't really be interpreted. We disagree and believe it’s a matter of going deeper, beyond modern methods, to uncover the hidden dynamics of personal destiny. Everyone’s life matters and everyone has an important mission or missions in life, even if it may seem insignificant on the surface, such as offering endless unconditional love to family and friends, for instance.
We have yet to find anyone completely or even mostly free of any of the rough stuff in life. Although someone might have less severe negative karma than average, their fate can still be interpreted.
Fate Seen In The Comprehensive Charts
Employing a complex enough system of checks and balances, you see extremes of destined circumstances and everything in between: affluence, poverty; wellness, disease; unconditional acceptance, intolerance; togetherness, solitude; recognition and fame, obscurity, and much more. By the way, we’ve found that it’s frequently easier to spot challenges rather than rewards in the charts.
There Are Only Two Ways to Reach an Honest Conclusion About Personal Fate
Predestination is witnessed through the objective viewing of the patterns in the comprehensive numerology and astrology charts and past lives of many people, over many years and, as we say above, finding recurring associations between those patterns and life circumstances. We know of no other way to effectively conclude that predestination exists, aside from using strong psychic abilities to consistently predict future life events.
Exclusive Usage of Modern Methods Will Fail You
By the way, if an astrologer tells you they rely exclusively on transit, and or progressed charts for prediction, we recommend you get a second opinion (unless they are consistently very psychic and use some basic cycles as touchstones only). Those types of (surface) indicators are best used for contributing to an existing, extensive analysis involving multiple layers of indicators, just as the “Happy Birthday!” written in icing on a cake is only to top it off; it isn’t the whole cake by any means.
How do we reach this conclusion, you ask? We’ve determined, through an enormous amount of trial and error over many years, that exclusive usage of such methods (and many other modern methods) for outlining personal fate (e.g., prediction) results in very low accuracy levels.
“Experts” Who Deny The Concept of Personal Fate
It’s amazing that so much credit is thoughtlessly given to those who deny the concept of personal fate, those who don’t even bother to test their belief through comparing the symbolism of cyclical timing methods to real life events and, or using psychic research to outline fated future circumstances.
Would you respect an “expert” who denies the existence of tsunamis, never having left the confines of his home state of South Dakota? Or an “expert” who denies the existence of emotional pain due to romantic troubles who has never had a relationship? Of course not.
New Age Best Selling Authors—Poets
It’s common in today’s New Age marketplace to find former journalists, doctors, or psychiatrists (and others who use the instant credibility of their former professions to boost their New Age careers) who very creatively address the hot topic of “influencing or completely altering the divine order of life” (erasing personal fate without having to directly balance it).
They say, “Can it be done?” Perhaps they’re asking the question to themselves because they haven’t done any work involving the outlining or prediction of personal fate. You’ll find hundreds of pages in one or more of their books hopping, skipping, bouncing, and twirling around the topic, ultimately denying that personal fate and karma exist (and denying that personal adversity is unavoidable), building infinite hope made of a house of cards and praying you don’t notice that they base their views purely on creative subjectivity, bloated optimism, and a desire for a best-seller; no doubt they’ll say whatever it takes to keep you on the hook, knowing you might ditch them if they drop the “heart-centered” (i.e., pretense), folk-singing-like prose and get too “fatalistic.” Very few of them ever answer the question directly at all.
To offer only conjecture along with statements such as “Tons in life happens that seems to go against the laws of nature,” makes a “spiritual” writer ultimately appear more like a New Age wordsmith, in our view. But if you like to read that sort of thing, and prefer to view spirituality as an escape rather than a means of self discovery, go right ahead. Lots of people like poetry and we love inspiration too, but only if it’s rooted in spiritual truths.
Cold, Hard, Realities of Life
To some, that might seem too dark and pessimistic. After all, with all the stress and demands in life who wants to face the cold, hard truth of personal adversity, fate, and karma? The purpose is about taking complete responsibility for your life, knowing that you have free will to prepare for challenges and capitalize on more rewarding moments, and accepting the perfectly equitable nature of this universe, which also encourages treating others as you would like to be treated.
We predict that one day these concepts will be universally taught, understood, accepted, and practiced from a young age. Until then, the cycle of karma continues.
