Fate or Destiny

1 student


We have a motto in the School of the Natural Order, “Sortem Suam Quisque Amet,” which

literally translated means “Let each one love his own destiny.” This can also be literally translated,

“Each love his destiny.” This lesson is to describe the meaning symbolized by the word destiny:

Destiny Two types: Created and Self-created. Created destiny is when your latitude of choices are shaped by your polarized thoughts, and other influences that influence you hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year. Thus you build your destiny. A synonym is karma, The way you work, consciously or unconsciously.

Self-Created or Discovered destiny is that which is buried in matter and is that eternal Power-to-be-conscious struggling and working to pip its shell and become conscious of itself. …. that destiny is the real purpose of it all, to be conscious of that is our real destiny, to be conscious of the Self. Practices in Individual Development p. 13 ff . See Also Karma, Sortem Suam Quisque Amet.

The list of Vitvan's works represents more than forty years of writing and teaching. Vitvan experimented with many approaches over the years trying to correlate his vision of the ancient wisdom teachings with modern science and General Semantics, at the same time trying to differentiate his work from metaphysics, occultism, and mysticism. He felt that such teachings, with their vague spiritual language, often caused confusion in the minds of students. In his effort to formulate a non-metaphysical system of thought, he employed the language of modern physics and General Semantics most often, finding these languages actually helped his students to clarify their own thoughts and better understand the wisdom teachings. To get acquainted with Vitvan's approach to the wisdom teachings is no small task. A great deal of time and effort is demanded of the serious student, remembering that that which is most valuable is worthy of extra effort. Vitvan recommended that new students devote two years to studying his language and methodology before making a final determination as to its value for them. He anticipated that after two years students would possess the tools to understand the implications of his wisdom teachings. Then he foresaw that another twenty years of diligent study, practice, and meditation would be required before the student could begin to live the teachings in a responsive, intelligent way.
