Many societies regard free will as a human right, where we are free to determine our destiny. But there are some that feel everything is predetermined by unknown causes, where our birth to death is already set and there is nothing to do about it other than enjoy the ride in between! Which is reality – free will or determinism?
Evidence is that things are determined about us before we are even born into this incarnation. Our DNA, genes and cell memories are programmed determining our physical characteristics like sex, eye color, etc. Since we are born with programming of our DNA and genes, it’s possible that the time of our birth and perhaps even the time of our physical death are also predetermined by some unknown causes.
Yet, the unknown causes of these programs could actually be our own choices as souls with the help of the Great Principle and Unconditional Love! If we can make choices in one dimension then according to the Law of Analogy, we can in other dimensions.
After birth we are mentally and emotionally conditioned by the collective human subconscious by our families, environment and society at large. We are conditioned because of the naïveté of our individual consciousness. We are ignorant about how this works….. how we co-create our dualistic, human reality ….. about how we’ve made it with Unconditional Love with the help of our Father.
The Great Principle is the Creator and IT also backs us up as we use our will to shape conditions for outcomes in Universal Laws like Attraction, Cause and Effect, Polarity, Gender, Rhythm. But in that creation we can get lost in the collective human subconsciousness.
Yet we are very capable of knowing ourselves and living in the present moment unattached ….. observe ourselves uninvolved in past emotional attachments and conditioning. We can learn to elevate our consciousness and recognize temptations like fear, anger, and envy ….. then release them before we cycle in them again.
What it takes ….
This process of overcoming our mental naïveté requires courage and a higher level of consciousness. I say courage because we usually observe things about ourselves that are not pretty!
I was surprised when I realized that I carried conditioning of anger unnoticed, because I am a relatively calm person. When any temptation of anger crops-up now I release it and the fear behind it or redirect the anger for positive motivation. Then I surrender to Unconditional Love.
The ego would feel very justified to feed on negative emotional energies like anger, fear and envy. Yet our Real Self, which is the spark of the Eternal within, inspires us to reach for higher levels of consciousness like courage, compassion and goodwill. These emotions are ours in the present moment when we willingly choose them!
Release and surrender ….
When we train ourselves and strengthen our will to choose higher levels of consciousness we are on the cutting edge of mental mastery and physical reality. We attract more of the same uplifting energies and destroy negative impulses within ourselves ….. and hence we co-create a more harmonious reality.
And when we add to our conscious practice contact with the Great Field of Universal Life Energy, we are contacting all Power and Harmony to help. That Harmony burns away fear, negative programing and conditioning bit by bit.
What’s it about …..
We can view our destiny from both perspectives – free will choices and determinism.We are born with certain characteristics, DNA and genes. Our preprogramming and egotistic conditioning can block us from our True Self and harmonious reality. Yet ….. by developing our mental awareness and free will we can recognize and release egotistic conditioning as in determinism. And with that same free will we can choose to manifest higher levels of consciousness aligned with the FourSquare …. Strength, Intelligence, Truth and Love.
To learn how to easily recognize and remove blocks to higher levels of consciousness consider:

“Analysis of Fear, its nature and causes, is one of the vital points in Mental Science, because in Fear is comprehended the entire problem of all the negative. When you overcome that, you kill at a blow the hydra-headed monster which leers out in the thousand and one ills and diseases of Body, Mind and Emotions.”
