It could be a path Lisa, I do understand my life is guided by fate. I have a friend who's a pretty good psychic she can tell me things will happen, even if they seem unlikely at the time, later down the road sure enough the things come true. So in trying to understand how fate works the only thing I can say to understand it is in life you will very likely take a path of least resistance, just like electricity. So you go through your life making the best choices you can for yourself and likely following the path of least resistance and play right in to fate. So it is very likely a path in a way, but how are you influenced to follow this path? Is this God? Angels? Spirits? It's definitely an unseen force that is for sure, and I feel I'm following the 111 as Lin would put it. I don't believe this fully explains the phenomenon though, because it's every where for those of us who see it. As this world gets crazier I can't help but think that is tied into the times we live in as well.
