All of this post is based on conversations with Jonathan. He inspires me so much.
The Greek word for learning actually translates closer to what we call remembering. They believed that our souls were all-knowing, and that this knowledge was lost when our souls were trapped inside our bodies. It’s an interesting thought.
I think that sometimes we know a lot more than we think we do. Sometimes we just sense what others are feeling, or we know what’s going to happen to us eventually. We’re more aware of God’s plans than we realize. Maybe it’s because we’re afraid of knowing. Maybe we just don’t want to accept that we have that power.
I think that “fate” is really just a matter of being where we’re supposed to so that good things can happen to us. I think that God, or the universe, or whatever you want to call what’s bigger than us, has already set opportunities in place for us. We just have to be the best people we can, and recognize the opportunities in front of us. When we accept that things are as they’re supposed to be, then we can truly be happy.
