I received a query from one of the readers regarding fate/destiny and the nature of greed. I wanted to share this reader’s query, as well as my reply to it, because I felt the other readers might have questions in their mind along the same lines. The reader’s message is as below.
do you believe in fate?
I always thought life is already written, though we want to believe evey thing is in our control, many a times many things happen which are beyond our control without reason. So i believe in fate and written destiny and taking life positvely becuase my thinking is that no bodys life doesn’t plan bad things for them on its own etc.
But if our desire and thoughts create reality even it is the life which brings the opportunity and inspiration, then it is more like no fate, everything is in my controle.
I read on your blog that any desire we have can be turned into reality but you didn’t mention about greediness. Aren’t there any border between desire and greediness. Many of our deisres are out of greediness. I want more money, i want more.
My Reply is as below
Everything that ever takes form comes forth from an “intention”. It’s scientifically not possible for a form to be created without a “thought of creation” preceding it. It’s a “thought” that actually solidifies into what we call “physical reality”. In simple words, physical reality is nothing more than “thought” vibrating at a condensed frequency or what I called “condensed thought”. So nothing is born without an “intention”. The intent or “cumulative thought” that was the cause of a “birth” sets the “make up” of the living being. That’s why I say that every human being is a unique expression, because every birth comes from a unique intention. The “make up” of every human ensures that there is something unique in that expression. Even if there are many similarities between humans, each human has some unique expression within him/her.
Every human being has a unique natural expression
The “intent” behind a creation creates the “destiny” or the “movement” of life for that creation. So, in one level, you are right in saying that every living form has a destiny or what I would like call “unique expression” because every living form comes from an “intent” or “cumulative thought”. But by “destiny” I don’t mean that there is a “written script” for your whole life where there is no control at all in the human being. By destiny I am just referring to the unique “make up” of an individual human being – like aptitude, mechanical intelligence (IQ), physical prowess/limitation, talent, natural proclivity etc These things (the “make up”) are like “boundaries” that guide your movement and hence create a direction in your life. For example, some people are born with an aptitude for technical subjects and naturally move towards technical fields, some people are born with an aptitude for arts and naturally move towards arts – this way their “make up”/destiny guides them towards a certain expression of their life (That was a very limiting example, but you get the point of it). When you move in alignment with your “make up” you always fulfill your natural expression and thus feel “aligned” with life. This is what “success” really is – an alignment with your natural expression or you can call it alignment with your “destiny”.
But just because you have a “make up” or “natural expression” doesn’t mean that you will live in accordance with it. A lot of people are totally disconnected with their inherent “natural expression” or what I call “disconnected with themselves”. When you are disconnected with yourself, it’s not possible for your natural expression to come through. Moreover, when a human is disconnected with himself/herself they are highly likely to live out a life experience completely contradictory to what their true nature is – creating suffering for themselves and manifesting “negative realities” around them. Humans can create through thoughts that they give chronic attention to, and hence things that are born from the “negative thoughts” of disconnected humans are born with a “negative intent” and hence are manifested as negative realities. All the negative realities that you see around you are the creation of chronic negative thoughts of disconnected humans. Are they living out their destiny or a written script? No, it’s never your destiny to live out a negative reality because who you are is pure positive energy and your true nature dictates that you live out a positive reality. But it’s possible to be disconnected with our true nature and hence manifest negativity (and not live out our natural expression or destiny or your birth right as the pure positive being that we are).
A conscious mind has the choice to align or mis-align
The simple truth that you natural vibration is “pure positive” (akin to joy, love/peace) ensures that you have a “natural destiny” to express joy, love and peace, but how many humans really live out that expression? When the mind gets into the wrong vision, it can easily disconnect from its natural vibration and align with vibrations of fear, hatred, lack and illness. There is no “written script” that dictates that a human will somehow always live out his/her true nature or natural expression. No-body is “directing” you from above and asserting a certain script into your life. You are so free that you can choose to align with negativity. You are so free that you can choose bondage – nothing is asserting anything on you. Your “natural make-up” acts as a “guidance” for your life but your mind/thinking will decide if you align with it or disconnect with it. And your thinking is completely depend on your perspectives/beliefs on a moment to moment basis.
The whole question of “choice” can only come into picture when your mind becomes “conscious” of this choice. An unconscious mind can align or mis-align unconsciously and is at the mercy of the outside circumstances whereas a conscious mind can make the conscious choice to align with its natural expression or destiny. Your mind can completely disconnect from your natural expression when it’s “unconsicously” identified with negative thinking or it can re-align back with your true nature, as a matter of choice, once it becomes “conscious” of its truth. “Choice” can only come into place when the mind become “conscious”.
What is greed?
When a human is disconnected with his/her natural expression, he/she is fully susceptible to create negative realities. Greed is simply an external expression of an inner disconnection with your true nature. The way I define “desire” is a pure positive thought of creation which comes from a place of connection with your natural expression. “Greed” on the other hand comes from a place of lack, fear, jealousy and hatred, and by definition is a “negative thought” because it’s rooted in a negative vibration. Desire and Greed are totally different vibrations though they are both “thoughts of creation”. A person who is rooted in greed while always manifest realities that reflects fear or hatred back at him/her by the natural force of attraction created by their inner vibration.
The good news is that life energy being “pure positive” aligns with the vibration of your desires (or pure positive thought of creation), and is disconnected from the vibration of negative thoughts like greed. It’s take a chronically negative mind to manifest negative realities (because mind can create realities through its chronic attention), while a mind that lets go of its identification with negativity can easily be pulled in to the natural vibration of life and the natural movement of your life force towards the manifestation of your desired realities. Life is focused on your pure positive thoughts of creation, or desire, and is always moving towards its manifestation.
A lot of people confuse desire with greed, that’s why I always ask you to “connect with yourself” first and find your natural expression, and from this place all the “thoughts of creation” that arise are coming from place of alignment with the totality. Greed always stems from disconnection and is rooted in negative vibration, and is responsible for manifesting negative realities. The way I define “Desire” is a thought of creation that comes from your heart, or natural proclivity, and is rooted in love or joy. If you are authentic within yourself, you will always know if a thought is rooted in fear/hatred or if it’s rooted in love. It’s not for someone else to judge you, it’s for you to be authentic with yourself and know who you are and what’s your natural expression, and then stand true to your natural expression.
