If you could read a book containing all that has happened and all that will happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.
No, I would not read a book of my life if it meant reading what will happen in my life. I already know what has happened in my life. In fact, I’ve written a book that covers much of what has happened already in my life in my autobiography, Guided To The Straight Path, which is stil in the editing stages. It doesn’t include everything, of course, but touches on the high points (and some of the low points) in my life. I know what they are. I don’t need a book to tell me what they are.
I do not want to know what the future holds for me. I want to feel that I have some control over what happens in my life. If I were to read a book of what will happen in my life, I would feel that I had no control over the events in my life. Maybe that is true to some extent, but I want to feel that the decisions I make have an impact on how my life turns out. I don’t want to feel that I am just a puppet on a stage playing out a script that has already been written for me.
Knowing the future means we have no control. Why bother trying to do anything if “the fates” have already determined the course of our lives? I could not live that way. That would be too depressing for me, whether the future was good or bad or a combination of the two. I don’t like the idea of loss of control, of letting “the fates” decide my future.
So I will not be reading the story of my life, past, present, and future any time soon. And I’m glad it’s not possible.
