Or you believe that your destiny is guided by GOD or Unknown super power, or leave it to the fate?

I strictly believe that we have a given life. We have choices. But the way we make our choices also is in our destiny. There are a number of occasions that I can say, I have been guided by the God Almighty. I am a Christian and I faithfully practice my religion though I dont go to church much. I dont ask for anything other than the power to bear my crosses, intelligence to make the best choice and receive gracefully any come backs of those choices.

I believe in God, and that he has layed a path for us with several roads on it. Then he sits back and watches which roads we r going to take then on each road there are certain times which he or an Angel must reach down and hit us upside r head to remind us of who's in charge.

I believe we are all here to learn a lesson and when that lesson is learnt they we will progress to a higher plane. I think we control our own destiny.

Very well said. Some people used to say "My destiny lies in my hand", meaning to say if they work hard, with commitment and courage, they can guide themselves to destiny - exactly what you are trying to say. Thanks for your response.

I believe that our destiny is "guided" by God, but it's still us who "create" our own destiny through the choices that we make.
