THE DANCE BETWEEN CHAOS AND ORDER -2

CHAPTER 2, DESTINY

by

Harvey Thorstad

“I think we were destined to meet”
Says my Love romantically in bed.
“Destiny, karma and fate
Actually play a minor role
In the greater scheme of things”
Say I.
“What do you mean?”
Says she.
“It’s rather heavy stuff
And perhaps best left for another time.”
Say I.
“You offer me ice cream and then take it away.
That’s not very nice.”
Says she snuggling closer.
“Ok, but, you’re disrupting my concentration.
If you want your ice cream, you’ll have to ease up a bit.”
Say I.
“Hmm!”
Says she.
So begins the tale of destiny.

“Predestination can also be lumped
Along with destiny, karma and fate.
They are reflected in our culture by such things as
‘Kay Sa Ra Kay Sa Ra,
Whatever will be will be.’
These concepts presume a plan being carried out in time.
A plan implies a planner.
Who is the planner?
Is it a God or Gods in some form?
Is it simply the rules of cause and effect?
In either case, order would have to be near absolute
For the plan to come to fruition.
This would leave no room for free will,
The ability of the individual to choose.
Individuals would have no more choice than a grain of sand
In an avalanche.
Since this contradicts the ‘I think therefore I am’ premise,
Destiny and related concepts must yield to free will.
Chaos must be allowed its role.
Thus, in a nutshell, destiny and related play
A minor role
In the greater scheme of things.
What do you think?”
“I think we just wrote another chapter in your book.”
Says she.
“So much for the heavy stuff.
Now let’s enjoy some lighter stuff
In the wonderful spectrum of living.”
Say I, snuggling up close.
