    I do believe in fate. But, I also believe we can change our fate with wrong decisions that we make during our lives.

      And wrong decisions come as result of lack of faith in the God who withdraw His support and reconcile as consequence.

      And change our fate with right decisions, too. Ego ties us to physical inertia. Spirit frees us to create as the Father creates. We are, after all, His children (when we are spirit instead of ego).

      Well if someone decides they don't want to go to work and gets fired, is that lack of faith in God? or is that lack of motivation?

    Yes. I do believe in FATE.

    Also I believe in Feng Shui that can change our Destiny of FATE when we want to. That is the reason why I am writing about Feng Shui that can help people who want to change their fate for a better lifestyle.

    Unless you are having the perfect lifestyle, I do believe everyone wants to have a change when their fate is not going the right direction.

    I do believe that everything happens for a reason.  I think the universe is filled with reason, but I also think that when we go against that reason, things can become more chaotic.  I think there are things we were meant to do and that our lives will naturally lead us down that path.  We of course always have the power of free will however, and we can choose another course if we so desire, but I think that is where chaos will come in.  I think that if your choices are leading you astray, the rhythm that is the universe will keep at its attempts to direct you back where you should be, making the path you are on more difficult.  So I believe there is both fate and free will, and that the two you should try to balance as an even scale to truly succeed at whatever it is that we are here trying to accomplish.

    I believe in inertia and momentum.

    If things are set in motion and not interrupted, then they will yield certain results. Simple physics, but in a complex system. It's a system subject to the laws of chaos -- small changes can have gigantic effects -- the butterfly effect.

    But I also believe in God's prophecy. When you look from the viewpoint of creator -- seeing is creating. So, prophecy is self-fulfilling, in a sense.

    Many of the crazy and deadly things that happen in our world were set in motion by the very "natural" trait of man called "selfishness." This comes from ego, the source of all evil.

    Just look at Big Pharma, for instance. They have a fiduciary duty to increase profits. It is illegal for them to do otherwise. That's enforced selfishness. Now, say someone comes along with a cure for cancer (already done numerous times in the last century). Big Pharma has a legal obligation to do away with the cures. Why? Because cures don't make money. What makes money is "disease maintenance." Notice, this is not "health maintenance." So, when someone gets sick, Big Pharma makes the most off of a lingering illness.

    The same chemical companies behind Big Pharma also provide chemicals to the food industry. Foods can make people sick by the chemicals added to them. Beef didn't used to be a problem. Beef with hormones causes disease.

    The physical universe is built on action-reaction dichotomies. The ego is built of dichotomies -- good-evil, right-wrong, generous-selfish, compassion-indifference, confidence-doubt and many others. Even mortal good is tainted by its opposite.

    But God and creation are different. They are not like the continuity-based, action-reaction, dichotomous world of physical reality. They are discontinuous in nature. For example, true forgiveness is an act of creation. It breaks with the bonds that would otherwise tie one to the past source of resentment.

    If you view the world from ego, you're trapped by the inertia of fate. If you view the world from the viewpoint of spirit (the true self, soul, Holy Ghost, child of God), within, then you are no longer trapped by its continuity. You can create, be inspired, and change your path.

    I do believe everything happens for a reason, but am not sure I would call it "fate" ... I think I tend to think of it as God's providence, instead. Great question!

    I believe, not in fate, but that God is in control of everything we do.  I do know that we reap what we sow, whether it is good or bad.
