Do you believe in fate or do you believe you can control your own destiny?
Quoting (and rephrasing) Neo from The Matrix, no I do not believe in things like fate and destiny, we are all control of our own lives. Might not be the circumstance all the time, but for the most part we weave our own stories.
Reincarnation: do you believe in it?
Being born in a Hindu family, worse, a Brahmin Iyer one and to top them all being in India, where all such concepts feel at home. Reincarnation being a very religious and philosophical subject has lots of takes on it with various interpretations. They say your soul never dies and takes on a new life, it depends on your actions and how you live your life.
Now if they were any true, I surely would have been a mosquito in my former life, for now I’m usually in deep shit…
While I respect everyone’s opinions and beliefs, so as long as they have the same outlook and no one enforces one’s on another. While I like to believe in karma and destiny, practically I feel you are accountable to no one but yourself. And often it becomes very annoying or very hilarious. If there is any truth to it I’d like to be an eagle and fly everywhere without headache, for right now I’m sort of already in the plain of oblivion.
