I've heard that death is pre-destined. And I've also heard that one can increase one's years of life by yoga which many did according to our history. They simply slowed down their breathing and thus lead a longer life. Is this true? Does this mean that life is actually dependent upon number of breaths and if so time does not play a big part since it's up to you to decide how long you want to take to breathe each breath. Are there any quotes in Guru Granth Sahib ji on the matter? Thank you
I've started reading bani for the first time ever. So far I can see the following messages are repeated: Remember god through naam simran. Everything is preordained by god and we are not in control of our fate, we only receive liberation when he wants us to. Don't love your parents, wife, children, only love god. It everything is preordained then why bother with anything? You can take the attitude - 'if it's going to happen it will happen' Not loving your family sounds a bit cold, why bother caring for your family? Can someone please explain this to me? Do we have free will? Or is our destiny truly written on our forehead?
