Aragorn is your man. From recluse ranger to king. Many quotes from Jung and Nietzsche that suggest this. Where there's danger, that's where your treasure can be found. Something like that.

From my understanding Nietzsche builds his theory on the concept of will and power. Like go overcome yourself and you ll get power in some form to rule dominate others. That’s the motto driving characters in his theory. Crack me if I’m wrong

There could almost be an entire genre of fiction dedicated to protagonists meeting their destiny while actively trying to avoid it.

Watch Bullet Train. Super fun movie and talks a lot about fate.

Corollary: you often pass by destiny when you obsess on taking the roads leading to it.

I don’t think it’s possible to “pass by destiny”. It’s kinda the definition.

It is never a good idea to run away from destiny, and yet, sometimes is necessary to try, for the sake of destiny.

So one avoid the road by following their destiny, which they happen to meet on the metaphorical road?

How does one interpret this?

How something can be your destiny if you never gets to have it experienced , the thing which you ultimately gets to experience is your true destiny.

There was something that I told my DND players recently, I came with the conclusion that planning for sessions was not how I preferred to do things. Someone jokingly asked: “What even is a plan anyway?”

“A course of action that eventually gets derailed in favor of something infinitely more interesting.”

Regardless of what paths are taken in life, you will get to where you wish to be, and learn the lessons you need to learn.

This scenario is quite common for all successful movie plots. It goes:

  1. Call to adventure
  2. Threshold (sometimes also the resistance// path to avoid
  3. Transformation through challenges and temptations
  4. Revelation. Through literal of figurative death and rebirth afterward
  5. Atonement
  6. Return accompanied with various gifts

Bankroll. The end.
