kāmamaya evāyaṃ puruṣa iti
You are what your deep, driving desire is
sa yathākāmo bhavati tatkratur bhavati
As your desire is, so is your will
yatkratur bhavati tat karma kurute
As your will is, so is your deed
yat karma kurute tad abhisaṃpadyate
As your deed is, so is your destiny
The seeds of destiny already stored as a result of former lives, but which have not yet begun to germinate…they have not yet begun to sprout, mature and transform themselves into the harvest of life.
-Heinrich Zimmer, Philosophies of India
There is no such thing as chance; and what seems to us the merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.
-Friedrich Schiller, 1759-1805
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
No snow flake ever falls in the wrong place.
