The concept of duality, the Tao, is interesting to contemplate. Fate and free will are oppositional, at least by standard definitions. Are we fated to make the choices we make? If the details of our lives are predetermined, how can our choices truly be freely made?If the decisions we freely make influence the course of our lives, how is the course predetermined? None of us chose to bear the illnesses we carry, and the illnesses can certainly influence our decisions, but was my decision to go to college nearly 30 years ago predetermined? Perhaps by my inborn talents and interests, my DNA. Are our freely made decisions simply shaped by events that are, largely out of our control, nature and nurture? It is fun to ponder...and also frustrating. The Tao in action!
