Life on Earth

Divine will and free will Agree: 3 divider Disagree: 0


Both Agreements and DisagreementsThe meaning of free will has to do with the level of consciousness an individual has. Every thought process, every action is a form of free will. These are choices and God the Creator does not impose His will upon you but hopes as an individualized expression that you will come to see that you and the Creator are one and will move into a place of consciousness where you have no fear and you have trust and you have faith.

AgreeQuestion 501: Why is the influence of spirits on us hidden? And why isn't their protection readily apparent to us? Answer: If you counted heavily on their support, you would not be acting on your own accord and your spirit would not progress. In order to advance you need to acquire experience, often at your own expense. You need to exercise your powers otherwise, you will be like a child who is never allowed to walk by itself. The influence of the spirits who desire your welfare is always regulated in such a way as to leave you your free will...

AgreeThe responsibility for your life and your world is indeed yours. It has not been forced upon you by some outside agency. You form your own dreams, and you form your own physical reality. The world is what you are. It is the physical materialization of the inner selves which have formed it.

AgreeYou have been given free will. Within you there are blueprints you know what you are to achieve as individuals and as people, as a race, as a species. You can choose to ignore the blueprints. Now: Using your free will, you have made physical reality something quite different than what was intended. You have allowed the ego to become overly developed and overly specialized. In many respects you are in a dream. It is you who have made the dream too vivid. You were to work out problems and challenges, but you were always to be aware of your own inner reality, and of your nonphysical existence. To a large extent you have lost contact with this. You have focused so strongly upon physical reality that it becomes the only reality that you know... In the dawn of physical existence, in the dawn before history began, men knew that death was merely a change of form. No God created the crime of murder, and no God created sorrow or pain.... Again, because you believe that you can murder a man and end his consciousness forever, then murder exists within your reality and must be dealth with...The assassin of Dr [Martin Luther] King believes that he has blotted out a living consciousnes for all eternity... But your errors and mistakes, luckily enough, are not real and do not affect reality, for Dr. King still lives.
