Fate vs Destiny
Have you come across this image before? The classic fork in the road… We have all heard the phrase ‘road less traveled.’ What is the road less traveled? Does anyone actually take it? The way I see it, when you stand at that fork and you look down the road that seems exciting and terrifying – that is the road less traveled. That is your destiny.
Fate. It is simple, it easy, it is already laid about before you. For some, people take this route all the time and it works out just fine. There may be some that take it and realize, it isn’t really any fun or fulfilling, but are afraid to cut across the field to get to the “road less traveled.”
Destiny is filled with your dreams and a route created by you that aligns with your purpose. It is not always easy, but it is incredibly rewarding. Walking down the path to your destiny is a path that involves growth, healing and change. It is a path where you walk into the unknown and may even manage to surprise yourself in the best way possible.
Your destiny is not the same as any other person, but it may be similar. Just they way our unique energy may be similar others, it is not the exact same as anyone else. Your destiny is a reflection of your immortal self. Your heart will be lit up with affinity when you direct yourself down the road less traveled.
Sit down, close your eyes and bring your attention and awareness back behind your eyes. Take a few deep breaths in and get comfortable. Ask yourself this question: Why am I here? Allow your mind to be open and let a mental image picture appear in front of you. If you see a picture and it seems authentic and it makes you feel very excited and happy then hold that image, refrain from judging it and soak up the information. This is the type of picture you want to act on. If you see an image that does not seem authentic to you and does not get your excited, it is probably not your energy and you may have to explode the image and try this exercise again. Don’t fret if you don’t get it on your first try.
I have seen many dreams in meditation. I have also seen performances and films that have greatly inspired me and made me think – wow, what if I did that!? When I saw the film Into the Wild, I was blown away. I couldn’t believe someone could just say fuck it and wander the united states. Unfortunately, in the end it didn’t end well for him, but I do believe he had more experiences than most that live to old age. To me, that was someone who really lived. I would like to do the same, but just live longer…
Of course, taking the road less traveled doesn’t always mean it will be this extreme experience. It is different for everyone. Where are you at in your life? Are you traveling down the path of fate? Does it work for you? Do you want to tap into your destiny? Are you already on the road less traveled? How has it been so far?
Wherever you are in life, remember there will always be opportunities to choose your truth. It’s up to you.
