How To Change Your Destiny

What’s your current destiny in the first place?

First of all. What do you mean by destiny? Most people believe that destiny is something fixed, that we’re born with it and it’s all we’ve got. That’s too superficial and unpractical.

As long as we fill our heads with concepts and theories, we escape what’s factual. We get ourselves drunk and high with all kinds of sexy ideas that look cool but remain unpractical. This throws our power away.

Reclaiming our power, therefore, means removing our attention from concepts and wishful thinking, and bringing it back to where we are right now, which is the only way to create change.

Practically speaking, therefore, your destiny is less about miraculously finding yourself being teleported in some heaven, whatever that means for you, and more about your current internal state of affairs – how you feel, how you think, how you’ve learned to respond/react to events, what neural pathways your brain is accustomed to, what chemistry your body has come to prefer through your habits.

Your destiny is all of this put together. It simply is how you process reality. As you keep looking at life through the same old lenses, you’ll obviously create the same scenarios, over and over again. That’s the only reason we feel stuck. Not because someone up there or the government is against us, but because this idea is comfier than moving ourselves, and doing something about it.

To change your destiny therefore from what it is right now, however you’ve come to know it – change how you process reality. And to do this, you just need to start questioning your ways. You read that right. It’s that simple.

Question your ways. Understand why you react in a specific pattern. Do your best to know yourself from direct observation. And then you’ll be armed enough to change things.
