I listened to a podcast a few days ago during my cemetery run that featured Sam Harris and Dan Dennet arguing about free will. It was an interesting, but ultimately fruitless, exchange.
Are we the masters of our destiny or our lives fated?
The answer is unknowable and even if it was, knowing would be more harmful than helpful.
Either way, each of us has a role to play.
The most helpful and healthy approach to the question of whether our lives are decided by us or by providence is this. Accepting that life doesn’t simply happen to us but through us. This is the path to experiencing more well-being and prosperity in our work, lives, and relationships.
In each and every moment we find ourselves in is the opportunity for us to choose how we frame our circumstance and what we decide to do next. At the very least, we are in charge of these choices.
Stepping forward with thoughtful intention, generous motivation, and an aspiration that is giving and kind is a choice we can make right now.
So, what’s next for you today?
Keep flying higher!
