Think About It Thursdays: Fate or Free Will

Published on Thursday, July 21, 2011 in , , ,

This weekend I came across the movie Adjustment Bureau.  I wasn't expecting to get as much as I did from the movie, but I must say it was simply amazing and quite delightful!

I want everyone reading this to set aside some time to go rent and watch this movie.  I won't spoil the movie for you, but I do want to discuss one of the main topics of the movie...fate.

Fate has always been a major interest of mine.  I've always wondered if our fate is already written.  I sometimes wonder if we are just characters in our own story or if we are truly governed by free choice.  I even wonder sometimes if are fate is determined by or free will?

Ultimately I believe in the latter. At the end of the day I feel and fully believe that once we are able to use our free will we create the lives we live.  I believe our choices dictate our lives! Scary thought hunh?  It doesn't have to be!  I choose to see it as a beautiful gift that can reap beautiful rewards in our lives and in the lives of others if we make the right choices!

So what do you believe?  

Do you believe in fate or free will?

I love the adjustment bureau. It is a beautiful story. I'm so happy that life isn't really like that. There would be a lot of emotional distress amongst people who "think" they are destined to be together, but are truly not. I believe in free will as well. I think that people live out their fate by using their free will to listen to the spiritual direction that God gives them. :) xoxo Krystal --@thekrystal_meth

You're right Krystal! That movie was just awesome from beginning to end! I totally agree with you, we have to listen to the spiritual directions we are given from God, but in the end our choices (free will) determines our fate.
