Destiny is That which is unavoidable

Destiny, really means, that, which is unavoidable, that which, cannot be changed.

That which is inevitable. That pre-exists everything that happens. And that will exist post all happenings. And what is that? Nothing, but emptiness, Truth. Which was there before the beginning of time and which exists, even after, the time has withdrawn. That alone is destiny, nothing else.

I repeat,

Destiny is not the ‘fruit of action,’ but because we live in our limited prospective, so we take the results of our actions as our destinies.


Your real destiny is the Truth, the ‘real destiny’ is ‘peace.’

The proof of that is unless you get that real unless you get Truth and Peace. You will not relax.

Then you must ask if it is a matter of getting Truth or Peace, then surely they are not available, then why do we say that they are our destiny.

Remember that even when you trying to get the Truth or Peace, it is Truth and Peace that drive you.

What else will drive you towards the Truth? The false? Will the false power you to move towards the Truth. Even the so-called movement or journey towards the Truth cannot happen unless the Truth is there. That is why all journeys, are essentially false. Because the journey of Truth cannot be undertaken without the foundation of Truth. So that which you are moving towards is actually that, which is moving you. Hence, there is no point in moving.

Your destiny is the great silence, that is where you are and if you do not consciously acknowledge that, that is where you have to reach.

Nothing else is your destiny.

Now do not abuse this word either. You go to the dustbin and you find a 500 Rupees note lying there, do not say wow, destiny is smiling on me today. What does, the chance occurrence of a 500 Rupees note has to do with destiny. What if it is 500 Euros, then obviously it cannot be called Destiny. You see, its 90 times more attractive then. No, not even then.

Destiny has nothing to do with all these random occurrences that keep happening now and then. You meet a beautiful girl, you say destiny. The girls slap you, you say Destiny. What…
