    Aren't destiny and free will the same thing?
    I think most people use the phrase 'Free Will' to mean the opposite of 'Destiny'.

    Destiny: the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future. (notice that this literally describes any future that happens, no matter what that future looks like. Of course what happens in the future happens necessarily, otherwise that's not what will happen.) 

     'Free Will' for most people, is defined as the opposite of 'Destined'.. but 'destined' has no opposite.. whatever happens is always destined to happen, otherwise it wouldn't happen.  If you press them to really consider what they mean by 'Free Will', they won't be able to say what they mean, because it's a nonsense notion.  The phrase itself, 'free will', is an oxymoron. Its self contradictory.. like a 'square circle', or a 'tiny giant'.   Consider what most people understand the word 'will' to mean..  I will go to the store.. The sun will rise.  What changes when we add the word 'freely'? I will go to the store freely.  The sun will rise freely.  'Free Will' must mean something other than just plain old 'Will'.. so what most people don't realize, is that the term 'free will' must mean something 'other than will'...  but we know this makes no sense in any context..

    "I will go to the store freely"  must mean "I will go to the store other than how I will".

    "The Sun will rise freely' must mean "The Sun will rise other than how it will". 

    Sure, if you want to play language and definition games, 'Circle' can mean the same thing as 'Square' as long as I think 'Circle' means 'a shape with 4 equal length sides and 4 ninety degree corners'.  Anything can mean anything you want it to, if that's how we're playing the language game..  but then it becomes impossible to use language to convey meaning to others, and words only have meaning to the person saying them, and mean nothing to the person hearing them.

    "Any attempt to interfere with how things are occurring is always just more 'how things are already occurring'".  You literally can not interfere with how the Universe is being, because anything you do is 'how the Universe is being'.

Keeping a public journal of your struggles and triumphs can be very powerful, both for the author as well as for readers.
