On this planet we have been granted free will.
It is an experiment that started several million years ago in other places, but on this planet it is quite a new concept.
Free will has to some degree always been available to the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms, but they have had limited free will inside the pattern of their life streams.
It was only when a self reflecting being appeared that the concept of free will took an interesting turn.
Most of us would probably agree that free will is a good thing… but..!!!
It is this ‘but’ that creates our suffering.
Free will is either there or it is not. Anyone who restricts another being’s free will is still expressing free will. Whether the restricted being decides to bow to the pressure, to revolt, to leave the confines of the restriction or even to self destruct, it is still an expression of free will.
It has to be ok!
What I mean is that if I believe that people cannot and should not handle all their free will themselves, then I would invent rules and somehow enforce these rules.
These rules could be: ethical rules, religious rules, social rules, political rules or economic rules.
What we have to understand is that rules are made up!
Everything that is ‘made up’ is not real.
Realise that you, as a being, have been granted free will. It is yours to do with as you want.
Nobody else can remove the fact that you have got total and absolute free will.
You can choose, right now, to wake up and take your life into your own hands.
You can choose to follow the little voice inside without considering any of the voices that continuously sound from the outside.
You can choose to set yourself free.
If you accept that everybody on this planet has got a right to free will, then you understand that you cannot consciously enforce your way of being onto anybody else. And no-one else has got the right to infringe on your ‘free will zone’.
If we allow ourselves to become whole beings then we will discover that we have got a heart.
To some people this may come as a surprise 🙂
We will discover that we actually feel good and gain more self-worth when we do something good for somebody else.
In this state free will becomes an altruistic society of individuals who allow each other to express themselves without rules or norms. Troubled, wounded or handicapped individuals will receive support from caring individuals who understand that they are suffering.
You too can choose to wake up now and allow yourself more and more freedom until you, the being that is looking through your eyes, can stand upright, smiling… knowing that you are choosing… really choosing to be and to do what you do… right now.
Freedom is yours.
