This episode of Living Myth begins with the idea that we all suffer the mutual fate of living in a time of tragedy and trouble. And yet, the way through the troubles of the world must depend upon the individual thread of fate woven within each person. Although the thread of fate implies limitation in each person’s life, it also ties each person to a destiny waiting to awaken. In order to illustrate the dynamic of personal limitations and calling, Michael Meade tells the story of how he came to write the book called “Fate and Destiny”.
There may be no greater time than these troubled times for understanding how the exact limits of an individual life can lead to the specific destiny that was the aim of that life from the beginning. As Meade says, “destiny is purpose seen from the other end of life.”
