I love researching free will, destiny and any blockages we have to fulfill our 'purpose.’ Here I am talking about destiny and how it could block our path to purpose.
Whether destiny blocks what we want in life is a profound and often debated topic. Some people believe in a preordained destiny, where the course of one's life is already set, and certain events or outcomes are beyond individual control. From this perspective, destiny can be seen as a limiting factor that may hinder the realization of personal desires. In such a worldview, individuals may feel resigned to their circumstances, believing that their efforts to attain what they want are futile if destiny dictates otherwise.
However, another viewpoint emphasizes personal agency and free will. Proponents of this perspective argue that while external circumstances and challenges may exist, individuals can shape their destinies through their choices, actions, and determination. From this standpoint, destiny does not necessarily block what we want; instead, it presents hurdles and opportunities that can be navigated and overcome with effort and perseverance.
Furthermore, the influence of our mindset and beliefs must be considered. A fatalistic attitude, where one believes that destiny is an impossible obstacle, can indeed become a self-fulfilling prophecy. In contrast, adopting a growth mindset and a belief in the capacity for change and improvement can empower individuals to pursue their desires actively and overcome challenges that may arise along the way.
In summary, whether or not destiny blocks what we want in life is a matter of personal belief and perspective. While external factors and challenges exist, the extent to which they hinder our desires depends on our beliefs, choices, and actions. Some see destiny as a predetermined roadblock, while others view it as a dynamic force that can be shaped through individual agency and resilience.
