Can destiny be changed or delayed?
They say destiny cannot be changed,it can only be delayed, right?...Now the question is..if someone dies a poor man,or dies through an accident...does that mean that was his/her destiny?...Your opinion and contributions are highly welcomed.
I don't believe in destiny, I believe we have free will, and that it's all interplayed with other peoples' free will, as well as a dash of circumstance and 'stuff happens.'
I think if someone dies poor, or through an accident, it's not because the universe was aligned to make it happen. It's a combination of causes, and the circumstances of death are merely their combined effect.
If there were such a thing as destiny, why even bother making plans or choices? Just coast along and let stuff happen... personally, I found that doing that in my life resulted in not very nice stuff happening. When I took the reigns, I was better able to control the outcome. If there was such a thing as destiny, it wouldn't really matter what we did.
No, not necessarily. But yes, we all come here with so called Destiny or Fate. Look up the Law of Karma. We reap what we sow. Every cause produces an effect and every action will produce a reaction. This is how universal laws works. No one escapes.
I have gone through this is great detail. It can only be understood from the standpoint of reincarnation - the evolution of the Soul from form to form, each a higher stage usually, until it is freed from the wheel of birth and death.
Grace is a very powerful word. It is the Compassion of the Supreme...the Absolute or God. This can intervene on behalf of the aspiring Soul, either through God Itself, or through the intervention of a God-realised Master, an Advocate of God.
Generally, Grace and self-effort go together. Ultimately, ALL is really an act of Grace, but this is a higher teaching. Suffice it to say that Karma (destiny) is 90% binding and if it be the Will of the Master or the Supreme, some things can not only be changed but wiped off completely. One needs to have an unchanging or indomitable will, an aspiring Heart and the Compassion of ALLAH or God. Hope this helps.
Other things can also influence Karma, and it need not necessarily be a fault of the individual. Write if you need more explanations.
Isn't reaping what you sow the opposite of destiny, which implies the outcome has already been decided for you before you could choose an action?
Karma is neither good nor bad. The farmer tills the soil, plants the seeds, gets the right rain, compost, sunlight ... and have a bumper harvest (Karma). We are the sum total of our Karma. Some call this destiny or fate.
I understand karma is neither good nor bad. I just don't think of it as equivalent to our destiny being determined for us. Karma seems more about the results of our actions rather than destiny. But I guess it depends on how you define destiny.
Fate or Destiny is the sum total of where we are, reaping what we have sown from this life and past lives. (Prarabda Karma).Accumulated acts, both from past and present, but not yet sown. (Sanchita Karma) Generally the Eastern term is more precise.
i really support both answers....thanks for enlightening me about the issue...
Destiny can be changed or delayed as long as it fits in with God's plan for mankind.

Lord Brahma - The Creator!!!Hindus believe it is Lord Brahma(the creator) to write the destiny of every living being(just like pre-programing the robots) that he creates... So, I'm curious to know how it is in other religions.
