According to the Greek myth of Oedipus he was destined to kill his father and marry his mother. His father left him to die in the wilderness to thwart this prophecy but he was adopted by another couple. As he grew of age he came across the prophecy that he was to kill his father and marry his mother, so he fled in order to save them. He then came across a stranger with whom he had a quarrel and killed him. He then married the stranger’s wife who was his mother; once again the prophecy could not be cheated. Just as Oedipus could not thwart his fate and destiny, neither can you or me; or any human being. The script was written long ago and we are all just actors on the stage. If we are then destined to play our role and complete it then let us fight the good fight, go the distance and keep the faith. And when even that gets to be too much, just let go and let God. Not my will, but your will be done. We are all just human after all.
