It is time for another stepping stone on the path to the publication of The Destiny Book. Today, we will take a brief look behind the curtain to discover a few of the many aspects covered in The Destiny Book: Rediscovering the Mother of Spirituality.

Helena Lind here with a tiny publication update I've just published over at my Instagram @Destinosophy. THE DESTINY BOOK is getting ready for pre-order in late December 2023. ⁣ ⁣

Despite quite a few delays and challenges, The Destiny Book: Rediscovering the Mother of Spirituality (Library of Congress Control Number: 2023914798) is now available for pre-order and will be published 2 February 2024. Publisher: Identity Publications in the United States of America.

For thousands of years, the concepts of Destiny, fate, and free will present an intriguing topic, especially when pictured through the sharp lens of philosophy, and even looking through the devoted viewer of religious thinking.

Sometimes, the idea of romantic love reminds me a bit of the concept of free will. Everyone wants it. Until it gets difficult. And we can't be sure if it's even always factual.But since I'm rather stoic and not exactly the most dreamy gal in town, I prefer empathy, respect, and loyalty to grand expressions of feelings and dramatic gestures....

In this article, let's explore the options for humanity's Destiny and the future of our world. We'll be highlighting the need for unity and action, and we look at potential global directions. And we're checking whether realistic approaches for a sustainable and positive future of our species are achievable.

We live in such challenging times. Especially now that the world is tested by the unprecedented situation of a pandemic swirling all our ideas, careers, plans and futures up in the air. And that at best, because, for far too many people it is about raw, medical and mental survival.

Destiny, fate, fortune and choice are important, eternal topics in yesterday's and today's world. We encounter them everywhere as the driving force behind mythologies, classic masterpieces, and many popular fantasy novels and movies.

In a new series of interviews with extraordinary individuals, see our Gregory V. Diehl feature here, our guest today is the excellent visual artist and photographer Tania Barrenetxea from Bilbao, Spain.

Today, we feature an outstanding and creative lady. Say hello! Gudrun Petersen — photojournalist and humanitarian. For many years, we find her brilliant work in many European newspapers, magazines and online media. Gudrun is also a multiply published author.

The idea, that all happenings follow a predetermined course of events is a widely respected belief, evident in the lives of a great part of the world's population.

The nature of humankind's struggle for meaning and our more or less heroic quests to change or fulfill Destiny has always been an intriguing part of the human life.

Did you know that your spirit comes with its very own compass? It points to the truth. No matter what you've been told or even been forced to accept and practice. Your spirit's compass is waiting for you to ask for its direction.

What, or in this case rather more appropriately, who is in charge of the melody of life? Who directs the unbending force that coordinates our journeys and defines our futures? Are we all chess pieces in an elaborate chess game? Is our every move pre-determined, predictable, and inconsiderate to our own wants and cravings?

What or who controls Destiny? In the ever dynamic religious world, the answer to that question routinely fluctuates between designed by God—manipulated by man and orchestrated in entirety by God.

To be destined for greatness is an all too familiar phrase – it is used to describe the lives of certain individuals who, against all the odds, triumph in the game of life.

Let's talk about Destiny in Greece, Rome, and Northern Europe. Woven into the Iliad and countless mythical tales were stories of the unbending forces of Destiny and her agents—pretty much everything from birth through life and death was dictated by it, and even the so-called lesser Gods were but loyal subjects to its power and workings.
