How to change the fate

It is easier for mankind to take for truth what is not proved and materially does not exist, than to set a goal and change your destiny. Who wants to make changes, it will be more expedient to conceive of their actions, to draw timely conclusions, to take the most reliable decisions in the future and take responsibility for their lives, while not blaming the fate that supposedly controls the lives of people. The choice is always there and it is due to the life of each person.

It is impossible neither to disprove nor prove the existence of fate with the help of arguments or material facts. Most often, fate is associated with humanity with an unknown main line of life, in which everything is predetermined, and what should happen, both the negative and the good will certainly happen. And if an individual wishes to avoid any events, he will not be able to do it.

In parallel to this judgment, the following question arises: if fate cannot be changed, then what is the point in the development of each individual personality. After all, no matter how a person tries and improves, everything will remain as it was intended and no changes will take place. This is a utopian concept of thinking: if one is destined to experience suffering, then you will not shun it. If you are prepared to become someone, you will definitely be there, despite the lack of desire. Paradoxical reasoning. The person who finds himself in this trap of the mind remains in place, because he is confused and not finding a solution for himself, draws conclusions that slow down her spiritual growth. A person begins to think like this: if I am not able to change anything in life, then, therefore, my choice in different situations is unimportant, and I am not responsible for my life and deeds.

Such an argument encourages a person to live in the range of two extremes. And a person starts or burns life, indulging in his instinctive nature, because there is no point in doing anything, because everything happens according to the scenario of fate. Any act will be correct, because the individual will not go beyond the limits prepared for him by fate, or will lead a lifestyle from the perspective of the victim. In the position of the victim, a person, by his own will, takes away spiritual strength from himself, interferes with his own will. With such a world view, the life of the individual appears as a series of unfavorable events that are not circumvented. To simplify their suffering, people are forced to accept the "bitter" fate, hoping that it will be easier in the future. These extremes are not related to spiritual development. Spiritual development includes conscious choice and responsibility for one’s actions.

A bit of theory about the existence of fate

In spiritual teachings, a higher spiritual order is distinguished, having no contradictions, for this it is necessary to go beyond mental limitations, looking at the problem with a spiritual wide view.

To realize how a person is connected with fate, one needs to turn to authoritative sources. In Sanskrit (the ancient literary language of India), fate means karma, which in turn is interpreted as a chain of causal events.

Studying spiritual teachings about karma, a person’s life is presented as a series of his actions. Every action he has done, and it does not matter what it is: thought, desire or action, is the reason for the future and the consequence for past events and actions. This means that every action that takes place brings a chain of events, consequences, which in turn create the following events. Good deeds activate preferred events, bad deeds attract a series of shocks and difficulties to a person. On this subject there is the proverbial wisdom, reflecting the essence of this law: "you will reap what you sow."

Personality's karma should not be viewed on a physical plane, spiritual development and the evolution of personality does not end with physical death.

The law of cause and effect is universal, works in all planes of being. Spiritual teachings say that every action causes a chain of events, and these events can occur both in real life and in future incarnations.

However, each person has free will and choice, and this is her strength, the key to prosperity and harmony. In spiritual teachings you can read that a person is an omnipotent creature, possessing the freedom of choice. At the expense of this freedom, the individual draws immense spiritual strength or completely destroys himself, carrying out certain actions according to his choice.

Therefore, spiritual teachers, knowing the truth, do not condone the weaknesses of the disciples, calling them to account for their actions in life. Each person, being in a certain life situation, has a lot of options, which one to take the next step, you only need to choose.

In Indian culture, karma is determined by the astrological chart, which is compiled according to certain rules. If we refer to the Vedic scriptures, they highlight that fate is divided into two parts. The life scenario is given from birth, but a person can change it for the worse or better, thus two karmas are mixed. One destiny (karma) is that which is predetermined, the second karma is the actions of a person.

The lifeline is arranged in such a way that, over time, programmed desires and events come to the person. If a person wants to improve fate, then one should live in goodness, strive for love, something good and bright, thus, karma improves in the present moment and in the next incarnation. If the individual wants to do worse, then you have to be discouraged, complain about life and it will be even worse. So say the Vedas.

The same was stated in ancient China: there is a certain corridor - this is fate and a person can choose which border (upper or lower) he will go. Moral preparation is required for difficult periods, smoothing corners.

In other spiritual sources, you can find other information about fate, however, in general, there are two areas:

  1. There is karma (fate), which can be changed within certain limits.
  2. There is no destiny, and man is the master of his life.

And yet, how to change the fate? Fighting yourself will bring about changes in life. And every victory over oneself begins with a personal choice, how to live, what values ​​to develop in oneself, with whom to communicate. In the personal choice a person is free. The main thing is to decide what kind of person wants to be. And everyone makes this choice independently. Many justify their choice by circumstances, the behavior of parents, total misfortune or karma. However, fate is not the outcome of random circumstances, it is the result of choice. Fate is important not to wait, but to create. Many ignore the right to choose, staying in the comfort zone, and everyone has it. Enjoy their right unit. Often a person does not have time to think about it because of family, children, work, thus, losing his chance to change his fate.

Canadian scientists have conducted research in particular Q-testing and came to the conclusion that humanity is gradually becoming more stupid. Because in most life situations, people do not want to admit their guilt, and ascribe everything to fate. Just a little bit, fate is to blame, because it was she who was bad. People themselves do not even want to conceive of what will happen to them after any actions, thereby bringing certain consequences for themselves, thereby choosing such a fate for themselves.

The aim of the experiment of Canadian scientists was to find out why people so persistently believe in fate, believing that all life events occur by chance. Researchers believe that the need to look around for reasons has come to people from the distant past. They argue that this ability of the human brain was at first significant for survival, since the important skill of noticing the causes, as well as the consequences of actions on the part of others, made it possible not to become prey for predators. Today, scientists are convinced that this ability repeatedly forces people to attach importance to many things that really do not represent anything of this and firmly believe that everything that happens to them is controlled by unknown supernatural forces.

How to change the fate of the better? Initially, you need to change your character. For some time it was believed that changes in the character can not be made, because it is innate. So, it is real to change the character, it is impossible to change the temperament, he is responsible for the strength and organization of the nervous system.

To change the character, you should change the social circle. The social circle includes those who influence the personality and have emotional significance for it. These are people with whom a person spends most of the time, which influence their reactions and their changes, preferences in tastes. People can change their character under the guidance of willpower, but often many do not survive, they lack perseverance in achieving the desired, because there is not enough motivation.

Often, people want to be different under the influence of a temporary impulse (thrown by the beloved, reprimanded the boss, etc.), and when life is getting better, every desire to improve oneself and life passes. This indicates a lack of willpower and motivating factors. Character consists of habits, thinking, methods of reaction, the degree of influence on the world around us and the activities performed. Making changes to these components, there will be dramatic changes in life. There is no fate except the one that man creates himself. The future is not defined, so believing in fate is stupid.

Belief in destiny is the choice of those who "follow the flow", who have come to terms with everything that is happening around. It is very easy to shift responsibility from yourself to destiny. People who accept the sad circumstances of life do not want to fight, to achieve changes for themselves. They believe that nothing in this life is subject to change. From the fate you will not escape.

Often, a person has a question about destiny or about the predestination of fate, because if a person feels his vocation, then this is already some kind of predetermination. Of course, every person is predisposed to something and in some way limited in something. This evidence is not needed because it can be observed.

If we touch on psychology, it will become clear that each person has an individuality bordering on some limits. If you study the fate of famous personalities, then you can see that, along with the talents, they had different limitations and success achieved in a particular area. This means that a person is objectively conditioned, for example, by his body, upbringing, his nature, time, and the country in which he grew up; accidents and circumstances that are beyond his control. This conditionality already implies a certain life scenario. For example, seeing a girl with a model appearance - it can already be assumed that in the future she will want to link fate with a model business or a child who grew up in a family of musicians can repeat their professional path. But this does not mean that this is exactly what will happen. The choice remains for each person.

A person always has a choice in how to live. For example, whining or fighting; get angry or rejoice; watch television or work; demand or thank; take offense at fate or change it; to develop spiritually or materially; be happy or unhappy, etc.

Thus, any individual has a choice how to live in the circumstances. Much has been written about this in the holy writings of various religions, as well as the work of psychologists. Personal choice determines a lot in destiny and what happens to a person now and will happen in the future depends on the decision made at the moment. This should always be remembered.
