Into the great wide open... everyday is unknown. You choose to keep going despite the fact that nothing is certain. Fate is an interesting concept that I’ve thought a great deal about recently. In Buddhism it’s Destiny that directs the path that life takes us. It’s influenced by our previous karma. Regardless of what's been or meant to be... sometimes the only thing you can do is walk forward and face the open unknown. 

What you think about Destiny? How do you feel about the unknown?

“Open… The door. ”
“The door’s opening. Just swinging real slow.”
“I see. It must be the wind. Would you like me to close it?”
“Nah. You ever hear about open doors?”
“Can’t say that I have.”
“It’s a shame. There’s so much an open door can tell you.”
“Really. Can you tell me a little?”
“I’ll do more than tell you a little. It’s not so much that there’s a lot to say but there’s more than a little.”
“Alright. I’ve never heard it said that way before but I know what you mean.”
“Alright, kid. Now an open door may seem like a coincidence or a man’s lazy tail needed to be yanked up but that don’t mean it’s not a good sign just the same. An open door is like an invitation to step on through. Embrace whatever rests beyond that threshold. Whether it’s daylight, nightlight or a bit of rain, the door being open means that you ought to take a chance and step through.”
“Wait. I don’t understand. I just got here and I want to sit down before I leave again.”
“Hush, child. That’s not what I’m saying. The door is telling you about an opportunity to take in. When the time is right, you’ll know it. It will call you tell you that it’s been too long.”
“I don’t know. Why did it swing so slow?”
“Ah child, the uncertainty is your fear and the swing… The swing of the door is calling you to arms. Some folks tell me that slow is sneaking in unexpected. While a rush of a door is sending you the sign that the unknown is prompting you to act. It should feel like an impulse in your skin to be sure. So child…”
“It’s wide open.”
