I am finally back in LA after my book tour, re-grouping and resting this week, and actually made it to the gym in I-don’t-know-and-don’t-want-to-think-about-how-long. And I caught the end of Piers Morgan’s CNN show with Matt Damon and some of the other actors in a new movie out today (loosely based on a Philip K. Dick short story) called The Adjustment Bureau. I’ve seen the trailers but hadn’t realized that the movie is all about the concepts of fate and destiny and our free will. Working on the Epiphany project has made me reconsider and examine my beliefs about this a lot over the last 6 months so I’m intrigued by this subject and the questions it raises. Because the movie seems to so blatantly explore these questions, I’m hoping that the movie might be somewhat good. If you go to the website, you can see the trailer and other interesting content – you can even vote “fate or free will” on uploaded stories and upload your own.
Do you believe in destiny and fate? That no matter what, there is a path you are here to forge, things to do, people to connect with, places to visit and situations to change? That we have free will but in the end the free will doesn’t matter? Or does it? Is free will, at the end of the day, really everything? Or does it have to be necessarily either/or? Can it be both? What do you think? What is true for you?
