Stealing from Hermann Hesse…
He wrote that each person has only one genuine vocation and that is to find the way to themselves, to discover their own destiny – not an arbitrary one – and live it out wholly and resolutely within themselves.
Everything else says Hesse, is only a would-be existence, an attempt at evasion, a flight back to the ideas of the masses, conformity and fear of one’s own inwardness.
This is a hard gig when you only have what you’ve been taught in school and such like, as a reference.
I shall be contemplating destiny today. What do you think about destiny, is it something we make, discover or are given?
