Suppose our future is written before we are born. Like the genetic code that determines our physical characteristics, this information is stored in each individual. Some would say that this is their fate that appears, and there is nothing one can do to change the future. This may be the case. For many of us this thought of helplessness brings upon depression and anger.
But who writes our script of our lives? Is it God who is testing our resolve? Is it the devil that places suffering in our lives? Is it entropy or randomness and disorder that determine the fate of the human race?
Suppose we determine our own future. Good thoughts and actions result in joy, and evil thoughts and behavior result in suffering. These negative or positive energies are some how stored in each individual, and reflected back to us as suffering or joy. Some would say that this is about cause and effect, with the effect not showing up until our next lives. Each of our sins we commit, we are accountable for.
But unlike the people that say that causality is about helplessness, and suffering, there is the other side and it is about joy. No matter how we suffer now, we can bring upon joy and happiness by our actions of today. We write our own future. Instead of feeling anger and depression at what arises, remove greed, arrogance and self love from your minds. This will guarantee you of a joyous life in the future. God has given us an open canvass to paint our own future.
Still today, there are people that cause suffering to others. They do not understand that they are hurting themselves. They are planting their own seeds of suffering. They see suffering and joy in the world, but they do not understand.
