Fate does not let itself be moved by pity, but it is never cruel; it is fair, that is all. To make this question more easily understandable, let us take the image of a pair of scales.
Let’s say all the misdeeds you commit will accumulate on one of the two trays, and all the good you do will weigh on the other tray.
So when the moment comes to pay for the transgressions committed, your good thoughts, feelings and actions will intervene on your behalf so that the debt will be less heavy.
This means that you should never abandon yourself to fatalism by accepting your fate passively. Do not say, ‘Since my fate is such and such, there is nothing I can do, I have to put up with it.’ No, never forget this: fate never sets out against us to crush us.
On the contrary, fate is there to force us to awaken spirit within us and work with it so that we may shape a better future for ourselves.
