Maybe just mindless ramblings, but I hope you take something from it.
Is Fate a designed concept?
When we speak of fate, we mainly talk of an event that has already passed. Fate has decided the current state of our country because the British had planned to swing around and dock in Boston and attack, but “fate” had intervened and hurricane winds floundered the ships. They were unable to dock and they called off the mission.
Now, my father is telling me this that fate has decided our future. How is it fate that decided our future? I think merely because we live in this reality where a storm came and kept the British from docking, we see it as a blessing, and that higher forces intervened because they saw fit. However, if we were living in the reality where the British had docked, wouldn’t we feel the same way?
“It was fate that the British landed and kept their rule over the colonists.” We would say.
Fate is random events, in which we need to believe that something happened for a reason, because it couldn’t have been a random, unforeseen event that threw the balance, because too much was at stake. We can’t believe that there was no control over the situation. Too much hangs in the balance and you can’t give up control.
There is no plan.
