Allah or the Mystic Law; neither matters if you deny your own agency. We exist in an eternal moment alive with potential to adjust the trend line. God or a Buddha can perceive the profound interconnection of all things and see the consistency from beginning to end; seeing everything that will happen…but not before it happens…because the freedom imbued in each moment allows for change. Fate or the chains of karma can seem immutable, but it is the challenge of true religion to enable one to break the chains. To change the destiny of oneself and one’s society.
