I am sure by now, everyone has seen the trailers in the subway for Matt Damon’s new movie, “The Adjustment Bureau.” It is great to see these concepts coming to mainstream. This movie highlights the difference between fate vs. free will. In essence, it raises the question – “what is our destiny and how, if at all, can we change that destiny?”
To a certain extent, there is already a plan in place for each of us and we have all had a part in setting it up for ourselves (believe it or not). Let’s call that fate. When you walk that path, life flows easefully and you find yourself in the right place at the right time.
Now, ultimately you are in control of your life. You also have free will. If you decide to veer off your chosen path, you are perfectly within your right to do so. You will know you are going off-path when life doesn’t seem to flow as easily. You can use your free will to change direction at any juncture but don’t expect it to be easily supported. The universe may throw obstacles in your way to put you back on your path or help you rethink that decision. But ultimately the choice is yours.
If you path feels unnaturally rocky and unhappy, you may be using your free will to force an outcome. It might be time to take a step back and look for the signs that will put you safely back onto your chosen path. Whatever happens, remember that you are supremely in control. It is your life and you are free to live it however you choose. Choose wisely.
