Do we have free will?

I was pondering upon the question of free will this morning (11/09/18) and it was dawned on me that we actually do have a free will. However we are not allowed by life and purpose to exercise whatever we think is our free will fully.

Life by its nature is purpose driven, whether we are consciously aware of it or not. Life must live its full course and we have to surrender sooner or later to it or be broken by it if we get in the way.

If you are struggling in any area of your life, take a seat back and check whether you are navigating against the current of life. It may be that a change in the course of direction is highly needed and you must change course to have a whole new experience or continue with the struggle.

Both decisions (to continue with the struggle or change course) are very difficult to our mental self, but to progress we must try something different. Failure to do so will keep us bound in perpetual human suffering.

Today

Today is all you have.

Live your highest ideal today.

Follow your heart today.

Do your best today.

Do not carry over the burden of yesterday into today.

Do not bring forward the weight of tomorrow’s expectations today.

Enjoy what is laid before you today.

There is nothing you can’t overcome

It doesn’t matter how many years you have been plagued by a thing or how many times you have tried and failed or how much counselling, prayers, fasting you have done. Anything you consider an issue in your life can be turned around eventually when you stop resisting, fighting it and lending your energy to it.

We are unconsciously bound by our chains and most of the times justify why we should remained bound. We accept our unpleasant situations as either divine or man- made (the victim mentality). By divine, I mean instances where we think God is punishing us or our karma from past lives is responsible for our condition. The victim mentality is an interesting one but can be simple to overcome if we begin to see those we think are oppressing us as angels waking us up.

The reality is that we are simply resisting our unique manifestation and want to hold on to our past experiences, belief and pain. We have become one with the interpretation we give to our assumed reality and the universe with our permission through the confessions we make does not have a choice, but gives us what we believe, say and think of ourselves.

Let us start now to change the perception we have of our challenging situations and begin to see them as reminders for us to rise up, be strong, harness the power inside us and manifest the infinite potentials lying dormant within ourselves. We are co-creators with the Infinite Being. It’s never too late to create the conditions of our choice. Let’s get to work. You can do it- never give up.
