Making Fate Advantageous

“Fate guides the willing, but drags the unwilling.” - Cato

Among those who value free will, there is sometimes a bit of apprehension around the notion of fate, as if it is something to deny, something to turn from.

If control is what is sought, then denial is the wrong response.
Fate is something to accept and welcome, for when we stop fighting, it seems to stop fighting, too, enabling what follows: a harmonious dance in which we can lead fate’s present manifestation through our chosen responses to the circumstances each second deals us.

Accepting the reality of the present gives us a momentary chance at controlling the trajectory of the future.
