To speak for myself, I'm not going as far to say that our lives are based on Karma (although it is a possibility nonetheless) in a sense that the things we do in this life affects what happens in the next life. In fact, I am not even suggesting that there is a "next life" or a "previous life". To me, there is only one life for me and that is the one I am experiencing right now. I don't have the answers as to why fate might exist but I do believe that no matter what actions we take by means to change our future will, in essence, be ineffective because it was already known what actions we were going to take. Known by who? I don't know but there is no changing what is going to ultimately happen to each and every one of us. We get to where we are by no control of our own.
