Freewill and Destiny
I happened to hear an interesting answer to the age old question of freewill and destiny.
Imagine a horse tied to a pole with a rope.
The horse is free to move anywhere within the circle defined by the radius, that is the length of the rope. But beyond that it has no reach.
We are all like the horse tied to a pole with a piece of rope. We can exercise freewill to an extent that the rope permits. Outside that sphere is our destiny.
Agrees with practical observation. Doesn't it?
How long the rope will be, is also determined by destiny I guess.
