Do you believe in fate?

Did you ever experience what it is like being in a trance? Or did you ever feel like your life was being controlled by someone else, by some power?
While I think about this, I am reviving the dialogue between Morpheus and Neo.

Morpheus: I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he's expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Neo: No.
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.


Flash: Date: 14th Dec‘2008 A.D

I was supposedly going towards a destination which would determine something great in my life. Cracking the puzzle at the destination would mean gold else I would have rags. On the journey towards the destination I succumbed to the external forces and lost my senses. Then there was a brief delirium. I was intoxicated into deep sleep. I was unaware of the things that were going on around me. I was NOT in control of my life. What I was experiencing could have been the exodus, the journey towards nirvana. But it wasn’t. I did not see any angels. But there was something that was bringing me back to life. I was unconscious, yet conscious. I walked all the way to my destination, cracked the puzzle and got entangled in the most amusing and amazing puzzle of my life – How did I reach my destination? The span which comprised of the time I took to reach the destination, locate the place which hid the puzzle, is still a mystery. When I sit back and think about the entire episode, that part of my life seems to be filled with void. Seemed like nothing happened, but a lot happened.

There are so many medical terminologies to coin that state and give an alibi to whatever happened. Some call it concussion, whereas some call it as the impact of the hit. I trust what people say. But I believe that, for that amount of time when I did not know how I reached my destination, I was not in control of my life. There was a higher force ruling me. It was my fate to survive. I did. The inner strength drove me to the limits where I could overcome the pain and realize the aim I had set for myself. My life had something in store and things just went that way.
I understood that, many times we do things that determine our fate; there are times when fate does many things that determine our life.

I remember having so many discussions with my friends over this topic. I did not support any stand, because I was not convinced about certain things. The next time we end up discussing, I hope, I fallback on fate to help me speak in its favor :)…
I need a few more experiences for that …
Not of a black eye, though ;)
