What is destiny? What is heaven? Where are you right now? The place you are right now is a destiny of your past self. Think about that for a second or two seconds or as much as you need. You are in a destiny currently. The past is a straight line, it cannot be changed. Yes, there are emotions and memories that are distorted and not completely the truth, however, if you seek further into the straight and narrow of truth, you will see clearly where you have been. That is the hope.
Life is experiential. What do you want to experience?
Destiny: (noun: a person, place, or thing): the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future. (sub-definition): the hidden power believed to control what will happen in the future; fate.
Middle English: from Old French destinee, from Latin destinata, feminine past participle of destinare ‘make firm, establish.’
Destiny. Where are you going? What direction are you pointed? What is it that you are going to be doing later today? Later this week? Later this year? Do you really have your life planned? Are you allowing yourself to give way to the Holy Spirit to guide? This is something that even I struggle with, however I believe to be worth the effort. This is where the power of questions begins to aid the mind.
Application: Future Me meditation from "Unbeatable Mind" by Mark Divine. (Personal recommendation, ask for the Holy Spirit to guide the vision to be revealed in you). What you will do is find the best place you can, ideally in sacred silence in sacred nature, and begin to calm your mind and body with heart focused consciousness application. After more than a few minutes of this, reaching a state of conscious peace and physiological calm vitalized awareness, begin to see yourself three months from now in perfect health. Ask for the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what it is you are doing. Give yourself permission to allow or create details to fill in the visualization. Details of sights, sounds, feelings, smells, achievements. See yourself accomplishing this (purified) dream of yours. From there go and see yourself one year from now, in perfect health, achieving what is in store for you in a year, by the desire GOD has placed in your heart. Spend time there. Let it feel real and see it, as the instruction goes. From there, go and see yourself three years down the path of life, in perfect health, with the body that you desire, achieving more. Imagine an older person of the same sex walking down the path towards you. That person is you. Ask them whatever questions you like. Spend time with them. Get advice and guidance. Achieve peace of your path, your destiny to be. Get clear. Then, in your own freedom of time, collapse your path back into the present. I recommend reading "Unbeatable Mind" and listening to Mark Divine's future me meditation guidance from www.unbeatablemind.com in his e-class.
People to follow: Jesus Christ. Your own purified heart. Those who have achieved what it is you desire. For the innocent ones, I pray you desire GOD's desire for you; which I desire for me to be True Love and Family and properous peace; a good life with family.
Books to read: The Holy Bible, "Unbeatable Mind" by Mark Divine.
Destiny. Jesus is legend to have said something like, "If you want to enter the kingdom of heaven, you must first be made like a child." "If you want to enter the kingdom of heaven, you must be reborn in water and spirit." I will unpack these statements further on another date. These are statements that have directed my own personal quest. Jesus is healer. He is the Prince of Peace. He is my personal Lord and Savior. There is much to the spirit realm and I bow to the one who overcame death and followed his heart through the cross. Through him and his Holy Spirit, I am thankful to have access to communication to GOD. Jesus also said, more than a few times in the Bible, something along the lines of "Ask and keep asking and you shall receive. Seek and keep seeking and you shall find. Knock and keep knocking and it shall be open."
This is highlighted in the verses: Matthew 7:7, Matthew 18:19, Matthew 21:22, Mark 11:24, Luke 11:9, John 14:13, John 15:7, John 15:16, John 16:23, 1 John 3:22, 1 John 5:15
Matthew 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."
Matthew 18:19 "Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." Jesus
Matthew 21:22 "And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”
Mark 11:24 24 "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
Luke 11:9-10 "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."
John 14:13 "Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that athe Father may be glorifiedin the Son."
John 15:7 "If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish,
and it will be done for you."
Destiny. "Watch your thoughts, your thoughts become your words. Watch your words, your words become your actions. Watch your actions, your actions become your habits. Watch your habits, your habits become your character. Watch your character, your character creates (becomes) your destiny." Chinese proverb. This is worth multiple meditations.
There is a hint there. Character plays a vital role in determining a person's destiny. So, who are you? Who do you want to be? What is your true identity? What has the world programmed you to be? Who will you decide to be? Will you share this with others? Will you guard and protect your heart? Will you live free? Will you be bold? Will you be brave? Will you express your self honestly? Brave is beautiful. So are smiles. Anyways.
Character. Destiny. How can I tell you a simple story to get you to grasp the manifold of character? The story of two wolves. This is my adaptation of the legend. Please look into more historical context. I believe it is beneficial to take heart in your source of information and your accumulation of knowledge. Two wolves. As the legend goes, there was a Tribal Indian (Native American) Chief walking in the wild with his grandson. He says to his grandson, "grandson, listen carefully to me. Inside of every man (person) there is two wolves. These wolves are at battle with each other. One wolf is good, he is courageous; he is fed by, and is, love, light, peace, kindness, gentleness, brave, humble, honorable, generous, graceful, wise, and of order. One wolf is evil, he is fear and fed by darkness, hate, anger, fear, lust, cruelty, tyranny, all things evil, and of chaos." The grandson, attentive to his loving grandfather who is well respected and loved, asks "grandfather, which one wins?" The chief looks at his child's child and says, "The one you feed more."
