Planet habits vs D9
My 2 cents - i don't believe we can change our fate. But we can use our freewill to change our habits and perhaps because we change our habits it might lead us to a better path than the path that we were destined to follow base on our birth chart. Freewill here implies to me that you have to recognize a need to change and you want to do it. Ernst said in many of his videos "You are what you get". Fate is fate, and it is going to happen when it happens. But if you change you bad habits then when a fated event happens, you might be ale to handle it more intelligently and more harmoniously.
If the Avasthas change every year, is one still not limited to which habits one can change during that year, or during that 52-day period, or even every day? There are maturation periods, and Dasas, and planetary returns. Each day, each month, each year, we understand more and more, we change more and more. That’s why I am wondering if changing habits is also fated. This is what I am seeing through astrology and the cards.
The only thing left to do then is to accept our mistakes, learn from them, try to avoid them next time, forgive ourselves, forgive others, release our pain, release our anger - so basically just be ok with all that is. I guess that is our Free Will - hold on to things that make us feel agitated, or make peace with them.
Our Free Will then becomes about accepting our feelings at that particular moment. I am angry or sad or happy or clever or whatever. Full stop. Not add a reason to it as to why we are feeling a certain way.
As children, we learnt to associate our feelings with incidents that happened in our life. So the basis of our feelings are based on assumptions, and we carry it on throughout our life. We associate reasons for feeling a certain way. This situation made me feel happy so I will try to recreate it so I can feel happy. Or this situation made me feel sad so I will avoid it at all costs. And as life goes on, we learn to add more and more drama to situations.
So our Free Will will then be about letting all that drama fall away. Life is just this, in this moment, at this time, in this lifetime. There is no past, there is no future. I am alive right now. I change what I can, and accept what I can’t. This is what is being taught all the time, throughout the ages, throughout different cultures. And that is the hardest part to do. Because that means that the ego/mind has to accept its faults in perception and its limitations.
We think in terms of us, the small ‘I’. But the small ‘I’ is a part of a bigger picture. Everything that this small ‘I’ does creates ripples which are needed to create the bigger picture.
This is just my perspective that I am sharing as I see it at this time.
From who´s perspective are we seeing this? From an all-knowing God´s perspective it may all follow the plan, i.e. being fated. But if we don´t have access to the plan and even if we had, can´t read it - what point is there to speak about a plan?
Whether a change is already written into God´s book is just not up for up to know.
