Free will is an interesting idea. We can choose. There is no cosmic decider making our decisions for our own good. It comes always to us.
As a child when I heard about free will I thought “How free is it really? When, if you make the wrong choice, this thunderbolt God will strike you down.” I was 8 years old; the beginnings of my questioning.
I am no longer a child, and today I question pretty much everything. We’ve been lied to and it no longer matters if it was deliberate or not, not really. What matters are the choices we make. In this year of 2012 our eyes are being opened. I must admit that mine are like a deer caught in headlights – they are wide open.
As each day and new revelation passes, our choices become informed choices. We are no longer feeling around in the dark, hoping not to anger the lender or God or official we are dealing with. With an idea of what’s really going on, we are claiming our place as sovereign beings of light, living in a reality that’s been controlled and manipulated by those who serve only themselves. The choice to worship, fear, listen to or obey these beings is always ours; free will.
What will you choose? The effects of your choice will play out in your every day. Realize that this choice is not evidenced only with your actions. It is demonstrated with your heart. What we haven’t been told is the truth of our own power. We’ve grown up in a manipulated world, trusting logic over intuition. The wisdom you hold is found in your heart. Its perceptual capabilities exceed those of your brain. If you nourish those, and approach each decision from a heart space rather than a head space, your will is free.
Those that have controlled us have done so with our head. They fed us information to cause fear and obedience, worship and subservience. With your heart engaged, those emotional reactions are negated. There is no fear in love.
Oneness is already understood at a deep visceral level. The ancients got it. When you hear stories of the wisdom keepers and their traditions and methods, you doubt them. That is your head, which has been fed untruths and limitations your entire life.
Listen with your heart. If what you hear is truth, you’ll know what to do. Lies feel heated and uncomfortable and can be frightening. Trust. The answers to all questions are within. Your heart will lead you to information, places and people that stimulate your own knowing.
“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
from Hamlet, by Shakespeare
We are the One we’ve been waiting for.
