Fate and Free will

Q. Can I choose to be Krishna conscious or is that decided by fate?
And do I have the freedom to choose Krishna or is that decided by fate?
I want to be Krishna’s servant, can I choose that or is that decided on fate?

A. Thanks for posting this question.
You have full rights to exercise your free will.
If you desire to serve Krishna or you want to become Krishna conscious, it is your free will.
It is not decided by your fate or predetermined activities.
Our present is the result of our past actions and our future is the result of our present actions.
As soon as you decide to choose Krishna, you are going closer toward him.
The moment we forget Krishna, we again suffer.
It is fully dependant upon your strong will.
Fate can be changed.
