Let’s say we know what we are destined to become, we all want to be rich and have the highest accord in our own work areas.
Someone who is an IAS wants to be the most famous highest level of IAS.
Someone who is an engineer wants to be the highest paid etc.
Someone who is an entrepreneur wants his/her startup to be a unicorn
Someone who is an MLA/MP wants to be PM or CM one day.
etc..etc…you got the point…
Now let’s look at it from God’s perspective and to simplify it let’s say we have a total of 100 people in the whole world and 10 verticals. And in each vertical we have 10 people, so total of 10×10 = 100 people. Now all the 10 people want to be in the top 1%, i.e be the one and only one in the top. Is it possible? Even if you are God it’s not possible. Only 10 slots can be filled by 10 verticals.
The other 9 in each vertical will not reach their destiny, only 1 out of 10 will reach their destiny.
Now expand this 100 to the current world population and this 10 verticals to the vast no. of verticals. And you got a complex mesh of people trying to reach their destiny.
Fortunately, there is a flaw in this logic;
In real life, not everyone knows their work verticals nor do they actually know their destiny. It takes time and an environment to really understand your destiny. Most of the time God or Fate or Luck decides our destiny, to help manage this chaos for all living forms (Yes it’s not just for us human beings but for all living forms).
Hence most of the literature says:
“कर्म करो फल की चिंता मत करो”– Gita
You keep doing your work and don’t worry about the results. Results will happen if not today, if not tomorrow but someday it will happen!
“Accept your destiny and go ahead with your life. You are not destined to become an Air Force Pilot. What you are destined to become is not revealed now but it is predetermined. Forget this failure, as it was essential to lead you to your destined path. Search, instead for the true purpose of your existence. Become one with yourself, my son! Surrender yourself to the wise of God” – Swamiji to A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
So do you really think we can control our destiny?
