Write your own destiny
I’m part of a small ladies book club and we haven’t had a chance to meet each other face to face in months during the pandemic. So, I thought up books that each of us would write if we could. I based the titles of each book on the conversations I had with each of these women. But, what I discovered after this little exercise was how powerful our narratives are and how strongly we can control that narrative by speaking and doing the things we are each passionate about. Who says we can’t write our own life and destiny?
‘Write your fate with your own hands and if you don’t like it, erase it and write it again. This is a powerful secret of life. We have such potential, such power that we can write or rewrite our destiny! All you need to know is what you want to do with your life.
You can tell your soul, “This is my fate, this is what I want to do with my life.” But when people are not aware, conscious, then negative forces make your fate. Why allow that?
The first step is to build faith in you. Remember, it can always be done. Second, build your confidence with the trust you are placing in yourself. Whatever you think of as a weakness in your character, avoid it. Try to live without weakness.
This means that in your mind, you think it is wrong to do a certain action, but you still do it. This is called duality. This duality weakens you. Live by what you believe.
Life is always giving you more energy: the more you use your forces, the more you grow.… Whenever you are tired, it means you are busy somewhere in a very selfish business, in selfish motives, selfish activities.
The truth is that your ego eats up lots of energy: without ego, you start feeling light. Sleep and food are important sources of energy, so do not neglect to get enough of them. Use both with discrimination and respect.’ – Swami Brahmdev
