Free will or determinism?

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?

Another dimension 

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.

This dimension 

 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:

Potent Pratice – Self Analysis!

“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.”

Eugene Fersen, Lesson 12 in 27 Lesson of Science of Being, page 257.

4 essentials for creating harmony in your life

You enjoy a little disharmony. You get attention when you cry, when you are miserable, and the strategy of the subconscious ego is to get attention. The ego unconsciously makes you feel like you have to perform to get any attention. Any kind of love. You grumble, complain, shout, protest, declare war, have aches and pains. Drama pays! The subconscious ego desires happiness, but it is also neurotic, causing disharmony. 

This is an amazing thing to realize!

Disharmony in our life exists because of the Law of Harmony! When the subconscious ego hits against Harmony it creates an egotistical concept of disharmony and we suffer. 

My own experience is that we unconsciously cling to disharmony. Trauma from our childhood can still hurt our inner child even as an adult. We may not be conscious of that hurt, of how trauma effects our ego, but it will appear in painful emotions, negative attitudes and in unbalanced bodies. The Law of Harmony brings disharmony and pain to the surface of our consciousness. 

Your authentic self quests for Harmony

When things really get bad, a sincere person goes silent and asks why: Why do I suffer this pain and hurt? It is a turning point. You are beginning to become conscious, and quest to find the cause of disharmony and how to avoid it. This is how you find harmony. 

Balance these Four Square essentials for harmony

  1. Use your energy wisely. Relax. Tension and mental stress cause problems. Stop fighting, stop performing  and begin relaxing in the moment. Peace is your natural state and your soul qualities surface. And, consider contacting Universal Life Energy, the Force of the Universe and Great Principle to help you.
  2. Use your intelligence wisely. Try to understand yourself, the way your mind and ego works, the reason for disharmony. This will help you understand and relate to others. Practice silence, meditation, mindfulness to help you align with your Higher Self, your supersonciousness. Slowly, slowly as your silent quest for answers deepens so does your understanding. You may gain some insight and realize you create disharmony, but you also realize there is always an opportunity to align with harmony instead.  
  3. Use truth wisely. Work to be truthful. Do the right thing at the right time. Avoid disharmony. We hurt ourselves when we declare war. We are hitting against harmony; aligning with disharmony rather than harmony.  
  4. And, above all, use love wisely. Start simply. Express Love simply. Be decent. Take into consideration both yourself and others. We are all connected. Have goodwill towards others and hope the best for them. And, be consciously grateful for the little things and the big things in your life. This will help you build on your love.

The key to Harmony is Love

Lack of gratitude has a terrible impact on our life. It is an indication that mind has turned away from Love. Our thinking has gone cold. 

Yet, through Mind we return to Harmony. Mind is the leader here on earth, so when you are conscious of love in your thoughts, when you choose love, then the rest of you follows. Your attitudes, emotions and behaviors also express love. You are cooperating with harmony. You are being in harmony, aligning with Harmony.

Harmony is essential in all things 

Deep inside we all quest for Harmony and Love. And Harmony is always here to help you.

“We are not victims of disharmony, because disharmony would have taken good care of us. Devils are always pictured as taking good care of their fellow devils. Like protects like. What brought misery into the World? Not evil, but the Law of Harmony. Harmony is manifested in a world of disharmony. It is the worst enemy of those who are disharmonious.”

What Not to Do, Part 3

We’re Conditioned!

Sure, we were taught not to be impatient or loose our temper, but we do it anyway and get caught in these very habitual behaviors. We can’t seem to help our self.

Continuing from the previous two post’s list of what not to do:

We’re Conditioned to Believe

6 – We’ve conditioned our self to believe negative egotistic behaviors like fear, worry, resentment and greed are part of standard human behavior and are acceptable rather than consciously releasing them and regaining our freedom!

In fact, we can live in ‘what not to do’ for so long that we think it is ‘what to do’!

7 – We are conditioned to obey an ‘authority’ without first using our own discrimination process and listening to our Superconscious.

8 – We think it’s okay to tell little white lies to save our self from embarrassment or someone else’s involvement.

9 – We want to be liked, admired, and known as a nice person, and therefore, we mold our self to that image, trying to please others.

Spirit of Love

That gentle voice of intuition telling us that something is wrong, a what not to do moment, is our consciousness tapping into Superconsciousness which is part of our Soul and Universal Mind guiding us.

If we ignore the guidance of our Higher Self we still have backup means to help us know the right thing to do. We can reason with purposeful discrimination we learned through experience, conditioning and education, but we still have a choice to take it or leave it. It’s like the aphorism: You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. 

Means of the Mind

Eventually, we must come to know for ourselves the way to harmony and happiness since we are responsible for ourselves. In a deeper understanding and wider view it is still following the guidance of our Higher Self because we are harmonizing our thinking and behavior. We come to release our grip on the ego and embrace our soul and true Being.

Ways of the World

We make our life the way it is. We must take responsibility for it and be courageous in the present moment and moments to come to help transform our self into a better condition.

We already know the right thing to do because we are part of Cosmic Mind, but we have temporarily forgotten that since we are experiencing a separatist, self-centered, egotistic mind. You loosen the grip of the subconscious ego every time you live in the present moment and enjoy now.

When we consciously work at it we eventually recognize what not to do and realize what to do.  Things like being conscious and accurate, making the best use of our time because it doesn’t come again, and being respectful and loving others unconditionally because they are just like us – beautiful Souls.

Consider this quote to reflect upon:

“Subconsciousness is the shell which prevents the Living Spirit within from manifesting as powerfully as it should. When enough Rays of Truth pierce the subconsciousness, then subconsciousness will collapse like a balloon, and there will be no more subconsciousness.”
