The gods know what the final score of the football game will be, but we still have to play it - British classical scholar A.W. Gomme

Hello, hello. I hope you are all doing splendidly. Prepare yourselves for another mind-bending philosophical post.

This time, my guides will tackle an age-old question, one that fascinated philosophers for thousands of years: Free Will versus Fate.

So, without further ado, here are my guides:

You cannot avoid your fate. What is destined to happen will always happen. It will happen one way or another. However, you can delay and postpone the inevitable for a time and you can choose your route to that predestined destination. It is a delicate play, a delicate balance.

Do not fear your fate. It was not imposed upon you by some remote puppet-master, but you yourself. You co-created your journey with the universe in order to serve your highest and best good.

So, in one sense, you truly are the creator of your own destiny.
