What is Destiny?
This is DESTINY!

Designed Effort Synergistically Tuned to Inherently Natural Yearnings
Fate and Destiny are rather immense topics, so how does one deal with them in an article? Chiefly, to draw contrasts to the Facts of Fate, and the Conscious Achievement involved in Destiny.
For a long time in our history, mankind has felt the gnawing forces that are implacable and relentless and ever present and conjured up gods of a ferocious and capricious nature.
This was very true of pre-Christian religions and despotic local ideas of Deity that had the effect of controlling city bound populations. Ancient shamanic points of view saw a more nature-based kind of spiritual force and consigned the topic of Fate to those more general powers that come at us all the time: Weather, Age, Cycles of Life and Universal Challenges of Work and Love and Mortality.
Forces Acting Through Existence = F.A.T.E.
I have come up with an easy to remember way of honoring the powers of fate, and yet relegating them to a natural and commonplace structure. This may seem to be overly simplistic, but it nevertheless, seems to put a fence around the topic so that we can then discuss Destiny and how we can take greater control of our thoughts and actions an outcomes. "F" is Forces, "A" is Acting. "T" is Through. "E" is Existence. "Yes, there are things about life, all life, and my life that can not be changed, and I must deal with."
Let's just list these things: The fact of my birth - Where, From Whom, Was Mother Healthy? Was Father Healthy? You can go on and on and talk about FATE, because until you have any say at all over your life, you can basically classify everything before that time as Fate.
Once you take a survey of all of your fateful topics and include all those things that are and were Forces Acting Through Existence, you can say: "OK, whatever gods there be, I am down here with a host of fixed and historic and scientific factors that gathered together make me me.
Getting Stuck at FATE - Dealing With The Fact of Your Fate
These are elements that affect you all the time. It is hard to escape them. You should not. You should face them. Many people spend their entire life times dealing with the fact of their fate. Asking why. Pointing to Heaven and declaring some epithet that they think they can get away with. Resentment and grief have a way of piling up on us when we think about the Forces and Facts of Fate. There is a scripture in the Bible that deals with this topic.
Don't Get Mad at God
In Isaiah 45:9, there is this reference. The potter and the clay is a continuing image throughout the Bible. This one goes like this: "...Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands? Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?"
Take out the Biblical language, don't trouble yourself with reincarnation and karma and you have some simple issues that many people go through. Joe over there, was born to much better conditions. Why was I born to these?
Animals awake and deal without consciousness. Our natures seem to realize the immensity of differences that Fate can make from individual to individual. Or do we make it more than it should be?
Are we using Fate to increase our suffering? This is what the scripture seems to pose, and statements about suffering in Buddhism particularly focus on similar topics.
Will and Consciousness - Other Gifts Given to You By The Divine.
While we are pondering Fate and getting bogged down in how we compare ourselves among ourselves, do we ever wake up and say: "Man, am I glad I have human will and human consciousness, with these things I can improve my life. Maybe I can't change Fate, but I can start to engage the topic of DESTINY.
Fate is the Foundation you start with. From there you can take on the marvelous topic of Destiny. Think about this: If you have a Fate, then you also have a Destiny, because added to each person's fate is your will and your consciousness. Add those elements, and Destiny is the outcome. Awake each day with this joyous statement on your lips. "Wow. I have will and consciousness, I am made to have a Destiny!
comes from your will and your consciousness. You come up with a new way of seeing old things and you design a set of muscular plans that take your fixed elements and redraw them, refigure them, redesign them.
"Synergistically Tuned" means that it is personal to you. You yourself have come up with something that seems workable for you with your strengths, likes, dislikes and wishes and wants.
Throw in a little COSMIC PURPOSE, and you have some true "Synergistic Tuning" - a stylized, customized, personalized, individuated plan, that seems to take best advantage of timing and effort. It is becoming your JOINT VENTURE OF THE SOUL.

The other is a new person with youth on its mind,
and new ways of doing and thinking about those old elements that you have carried
around like a box of rocks all your life.
