Fate Versus Our Infinite Future

What about fate? Some of us are resigned to fate. Fate can feel predestined. Some of us are afraid of fate. Fate can be understood as outside of our control. What difference would it make if we saw our future as evolving from one present moment to the next? What if all of our thoughts, choices, and actions together create the reality in which we live, now?

Are you open to a new concept? You can begin to understand our infinite future is like an ocean wave sinking into the sand of reality.


Years ago, I read in “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield, the concept of self-sovereignty. At the time this concept scared me. It was too much responsibility. I would rather God be sovereign, and I could continue to be my dependent imperfect self. God was big and all-knowing, and I was small and unknowing.

As a Christian, I was always concerned about doing God's will. The problem was that I could not always figure out what was God's will. Should I turn to the right or left? Should I wait or go? Should I speak or not? Is what I envision for the future true or not? Trying to figure out God's will can be a stumbling block to moving forward. We can become paralyzed with indecision.

Eventually, I just had to trust what came to mind. I measured what came to mind with what felt true in my heart, and I did my best to move forward. Finally, I followed a series of signs that seem to be true for me and those around me said a resounding, ‘No.’

After I resigned from my church job because God said I could, I listened to a book called “The Drunkard's Walk.” The book promised to help me understand the probability of following one path or another. My takeaway from this book was that we may walk like a drunkard, weaving in and out with every step, but we are always moving forward. That's all I needed to know. We are always moving forward.

Believing God is in control puts the control outside of ourselves. Then we have God to blame or praise, when in fact, we can begin to understand that the future is a result of the culmination of all of our choices and actions! What if we are waiting on God and God is waiting on us? Who should move first? Maybe we should and God will create the best outcomes possible out of our thoughts, choices, and actions!

Fate or Timing?

Fate seems unfair and can feel unloving. Rather than fate, I decided to believe in timing. I trust the timing of all things. I do not know what will happen in the next moment, but I trust it will be for my highest good and the highest good of others.

As I write this, I am in Mexico on vacation. After dinner last night, we were looking for a ride back to our hotel. At that moment, a truck drove up and the driver was a friend of ours from years past. What are the chances? I believe the Universe worked this out for us for the joy of connection. Perfect timing! Hugs galore!

We can celebrate every present moment. What are the chances that all the people in our lives, born in different places, moving, traveling, and then all of a sudden, we are together in the same place? Trusting the timing of all things, we can trust Love is always for us and that everything is a miracle.

What About Wars and Death?

Wars are created by the story we tell ourselves. Some people are very blind to what is true. They believe in stories created by ancestors, governments, ideologies, and religions. Somehow, they are not capable of caring how their story leads to oppression and killing people. How can this be?

I cry at the thought of people hurting people. The world cries out, too. Torture is unspeakable. The violent perpetrator, in this life or the next realm, will see and feel the results of their actions. They will learn the lesson of love, eventually.

Someday money will not matter except for an exchange of goods. Borders will become a fact of life rather than something to fight over. We will understand that land is a piece of earth created to sustain us. Each of these changes will be a result of our better thoughts, choices, and actions.

We are all evolving toward love. Without judgment I observe, some are not as far along. Someday wars will stop. Wars will stop when each one of us evolves toward a higher level of consciousness that believes in the value of love and caring for one another as our highest achievement.

In every present moment, babies are born. In every present moment, people die. I lead a grief support group for senior citizens. The timing of illness and death is very difficult to accept for those left behind. They do find peace in the fact that their loved ones are no longer suffering. I also officiate funerals. The funeral of a four-month-old baby boy was beyond difficult, and at the time it was impossible to understand why. Someday, we will see it differently and recognize a deeper truth. Love Help Us!

A Pattern or No Pattern at All?

Do we suffer from patterns outside of our control? We understand our DNA is affected by our genetics, environment, and mindset. We used to think DNA was only affected by genetics and we were left to manage what seemed to be outside of our control. Now we know that our thoughts, actions, environment, and the people around us influence how we manage life from day to day.

Rather than being stuck with predetermination or fate, we can build a new future from our choices and actions in every present moment. The following quote suggests although we may be influenced by patterns, maybe there's no pattern at all.

“Be ready. They’re little moments that get big fast, each one different for a thousand different families, each one made of truths and lies woven into patterns or woven not at all.” (Heacox, Kim. Jimmy Bluefeather (p. 40). West Margin Press. Kindle Edition.)

The concept of no pattern at all is exciting to me because it can mean we get to create a pattern through our thoughts, choices, and actions. The choices we make really, really matter. Understanding our choices matter means we will take more responsibility for our lives and the future of our human family and the planet.

Believe In Love

I believe in love. I believe love is for us all. The miracle of love is that love creates the highest good in every circumstance. A person with cancer sees life in a new way. An addict becomes a counselor. Parents treasure their rainbow baby even more deeply.

I have a client right now who believes the Universe has to help her because that is what the Universe does. Only because she exists does she trust help. She believes love has nothing to do with it. We have just started working together. I have 11 more sessions to help her understand what love is. Love makes all the difference.

The magic of love is that every choice we make is transformed by love and our highest good is made available, even on our worst day. We have nothing to fear. We have nothing to worry about. Love is love is love is love is love. Love will empower us!

Everything can be put into perspective. Everything is the story we tell ourselves. Of course, we need to be honest when we're in pain but we also need to realize at that moment, our pain will not last forever. Someday, we will be healed. Our story will be transformed into something livable. Blaming ourselves, others, our circumstances, or God, will not help us.

Better Than Fate

What is better than fate? Trusting the future, one moment at a time is better than fate. What if every present moment is taken into consideration and the future is created in a nanosecond at a time? All possibilities are available to us, infinitely. My thoughts and actions create my future. The same is true for you. Do you see how exciting this is? Can you feel the possibilities open to you?

We are not the same person now as we were a second ago. Cells in our body are duplicating and dying. Our thoughts are changing. We have an infinite number of choices ahead of us, now. Everything matters. Everything is a miracle.

I believe in love, timing, and self-sovereignty. I suggest these three concepts are better than believing in fate. Love is making the best of all of our choices.

Our Infinite Future is Like an Ocean Wave

Finally, imagine an ocean wave. Waves are constant everywhere along the seashore. A wave rushes to the shore and sinks into the sand (or crashes into rocks). What if our infinite future is just the same? All our collective thoughts, choices, and actions make up an ocean of possibilities which creates a wave of reality in each present moment.

Our human experiences, thoughts, intentions, choices, and actions create the future. In each present moment, our future is unfolding and sinking into the sand of reality.

Sometimes a big wave comes and is destructive. We do not need to surrender to the destruction, but we do need to notice what is and let the emotions move through us as we face reality. There is always a solution. You are always on the best path.
