In my co-authored book "You Are Loved" I refer to Michael Meade several times, having had quite a bit of experience with him through the years, at his workshops and men's retreats. Speaking as a male whose father left my mom, my two sisters and I in my early teens, I have nothing but praise and respect for the work Michael Meade has done through his Mosaic Voices organization. "Fate and Destiny" contains exactly the material I most needed to hear to pull me forward through the last days of a ver ...more

I really believe in fate and destiny. I thought books on fate and destiny generally would be abstract which requires a person to understand the meaning in depth and symbolism if any. I was surprised that I actually ended up liking the book and know that I will read the book again in the future. I was glad that I bought this book to read because I could be missing out so many interesting stories. It would have been a reading loss if I don't read this book. I enjoyed reading this book from the fir ...more

I was a bit nervous listening to audio version, which seems not only abridged but live audience as well, that it wouldn’t be “as good” as the actual book.

Honestly, now I’m wondering how the actual book could possibly compare to audio version.

Michael Meade is absolutely amazing. I love his perspective.. the stories he’s found and shares.. the message and the wisdom and how he puts it all together.

At any time of my life this would have been wonderful, but especially now and espec

A wonderful man named Rick Gutierre said, "Michael Meade is speaking in Los Angeles" and this was my first introduction to the man who wrote Fate and Destiny: The Two agreements of the Soul.

A Latin American prayer said, "To those who nunger give bread, and to those who have bread give hunger for justice." For allof those who hunber for a reality not often sopken of, Fate and Destiny should be on their list. In a world where people not only hunger for bread and justice, they hunber for a way to h

Liked this overall. The subject matter is definitely of interest to me (the distinction between fate and destiny and why we need both), and I enjoyed the various stories/myths he used as examples/metaphors to tell his larger story. However, I found it a bit repetitive and structurally confusing--the book felt like it wandered off into odd corners sometimes, and I wanted it to be more clearly organized, more like a good narrative story with beginning-middle-end and less like a spiraling conversat ...more

Very good perspective on the importance of vocation, or calling. Michael Meade shares his own story and gives us the insight on how to find our story and live a more meaningful life through a distinction between fate, aspects of our lives which we seem born into, and destiny, that which calls us out and away from our fate.

“There is a greater will, a greater need and purpose hidden within each life, and there is an inner law that knows best how each must live and that is worth stealing for; it’s worth dying for, and worth living for as well.” 5 likes
“All meaningful change requires a genuine surrender. Yet, to surrender does not simply mean to give up; more to give up one’s usual self and allow something other to enter and redeem the lesser sense of self. In surrendering, we fall to the bottom of our arguments and seek to touch the origin of our lives again. Only then can we see as we were meant to see, from the depth of the psyche where the genius resides, where the seeds of wisdom and purpose were planted before we were born.” 3 likes
