Numerology Expert Explains Why YOU Are the ONE Who Runs Your Life – Part 1


Last year, I had Jennifer Skinner made an interesting comment in my blog when I talked about free will and destiny.

It is interesting to revisit here for you to air your opinion.

Style, Self-Expression and Sonnets

One of my favorite discussions of free will and determinism is found in a passage in Madeleine L’Engle’s classic A Wrinkle in Time. Here, one of the characters compares our lives to a sonnet. She makes the point that a sonnet is a very strict form of poetry, with exactly fourteen lines, a strict meter, and each line ending in a rigid rhyme pattern. And yet within this strict structure the poet has complete freedom. And so it is with life. “You’re given the form,” the character says. “But you have to write the sonnet yourself. What you say is completely up to you.”


Now, please tell me what you think!

  2. Indeed, being an entrepreneur, and formerly as a Sales Woman, I used a quote from Claire Nuer, “You are the CEO of your life.”

    Which is both profoundly freeing AND for which we must then take responsibility.

    Marvelous, is it not?

    I’ve written a sonnet. And Japanese Tonkas and Haikus.

    Hi John,

    We are the masters of our destiny!

  4. I agree with both April & Duane, our lives are ours to do with what we will. Everyday we make decisions that cause us to change direction. There is no overall plan…we create our own destiny.

    I belive that God has a plan for me but it is my free will to choose to follow it or ignore it at my peril.

  7. JJ Jalopy says:

    I agree with Steve, Duane and April.

    I think we are fully in control of our lives.

    I create my future based solely on my thoughts, decisions and actions.

    I don’t think there’s a masterplan.

    Well done! We have the begining and end tour lives but within that frame we have unlimited choices and free will. Sometimes I think that a good part of that time is spent just realizing what we can do.

  9. There is so much debate on this topic yet science has shed little conclusive evidence on the topic. Imagine if you were copied, molecule by molecule, such that an exact copy were created. Would it be the same as you, with the same memories and future thoughts? What is it that makes more than the sum of the physical parts?

  10. True, so true. Poetry makes the world a better place. I like the idea of form and content. The laws of the universe is the form and our lives are the content. So simple but we forget. I also like to think that knowing that things are what they are as they are frees me to live a life of little resistance and therefore great joy. Love the post.

    Kind Regards,

    I choose.

    Here I stand, I can do no other.

    Captain of my destiny, master of my soul.

  13. Pam Schulz says:

    I agree with Bob.

    Christian raises an interesting point. I would argue that a duplicate “you” would be a robot not a human being. We are created with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions. The first two may be cloned, the last two cannot be and are what make you – you.

    Interesting perspectives.

  14. Darryl Pace says:

    We (our person and our lives/results) are the sum total of our thoughts. We can be nothing else. We can choose what we concentrate our thoughts on. Therefore, we determine what we become. The almighty God has given us this power over our own destinies. An act of God can change our course (much like the “waves” and “weather” that Rob referred to in his reply).

    I’m with Bob, I follow or digress from God’s plan at my peril. But He has given me free will. He has also given others in my life their own free will. and sometimes I am not sure where they all cross over/intersect. IT seems to me it gets clearer as I get older. Odd that.

  16. lynn Lane says:

    This has been talked about for centuries and will continue for many many years.

    Free will is a power we have to guide our life. I’ve had people ask me why people get sick, die or murdered if God is so good. “It’s called Life” that’s part of it.
    Very good post today. Enjoyed the comments.

  17. Of COURSE I am in charge. Because I can always change my name! :) Something which you intriguingly pointed about regarding balancing out the energy of my name last Fall 2008.

  18. Pat Becker says:

    I am a sonnet. When I think of the sonnets I’ve read I glow with the comparison. I’m free to soar and to swoop. I have all this room in which to live a marvelous life. I write the sonnet of my life.

    John, I think we control our own destiny to a certain extent. We cannot always control what happens to us but we can control our reactions. Mark

    Ugh, I liked! So clear and positively.

  21. I am in complete control of my life and I have no one to blame but myself for my where I am now or where I’m not.
