In the files of Sandra Day O-Connor, the first woman supreme court justice, was this note she wrote to herself:
“Don’t let fate take over. You can influence your destiny.”
“First: Sandra Day O’Connor,” by Evan Thomas
One’s destiny from a spiritual point of view, is always oneness with God. Spiritual man and Spirit-God is the ultimate reality of all things, and everyone is destined to learn and experience this fact.
However, in the human experience, it can seem at times that something other than God is controlling our destiny.
In O’Connor’s case, being a woman in a man’s world could have caused her to accept many limitations on her career trajectory. But she rejected them knowing that she was as capable as a man. And she proved it. She demonstrated over the “fate” of a woman that sexism, discrimination, and chauvinism could have outlined for her.
We can apply the same rule in our lives. We should never let any type of mortal mind fate take over. Predictions of illness, lack, depression, and conflict are examples of mortal mind outlining fate. We are not helpless in the face of these evils. They can be rejected and replaced with an understanding of abundant health, supply, joy and harmony coming from God.
Our fate is never evil. It is good. Accept the best for yourself, and prosper.
