Destiny, according to The Sage, refers to everything that happens during a person’s lifetime. Mr.Einstein might assert that we have a bit of control over that. We can make choices despite the deterministic nature of existence. We can play the role of victim and engage in hopeless complaisance. We can act with aggression to assert accomplishment of carefully planned goals. We can choose to hurt or help others, to destroy or nurture, to rend or to mend. Aiming to dominate others begets enmity; cooperation and assistance begets supportive friends.
