One thing appears to be certain you cannot change your Destiny. Then what do we do? Lead a carefree life like the brownian motion of the particles and move in the direction of the resultant force or add externalities and modify the resultant.
Every person gets a chance to think and apply externalities. It depends on us ,whether we accept those or remain averse to the chances that come our way. I was posted in the District Transport Department of a big District in West Bengal state of India, in 2003. Everyone knows its a hotbed of agents and associated corrupt practices. It so happened that one of the agents who used to come to me often with one or the other requests, one day took me to one astrologer. He prepared horoscope but instead of emphasizing on the horoscope gave me Gayatri Mantra and Hanuman Chalisa and asked me make it a habit to recite the every day. I was reluctant to do the same but slowly and steadily began the process.
Today in 2021, the 2nd year of the Pandemic, as I look back I remain ever-grateful to the MV Agent who introduced me to the Gayatri Mantra and the Hanuman Chalisa.
