I do not believe in that word Fate. It is the refuge of every self-confessed failure.

Understanding that a Divine Spirituality guides all that we do does not mean we can abdicate our leadership role in this life; quite the opposite, it makes us all the more responsible for the decisions we make and the actions we take. We will be held into account, and “It must have been fate” will not be an acceptable response.
