Spirituality, spiritual healing & free will?
What is free will from a spiritual perspective?
"Free will is the freedom to interpret and respond to each moment in life".
🤔There is an argument free will is an illusion. Everything is predetermined. How does that fit with spirituality?
🔺Cause and affect is very A+B=C. It is very linear.
🔺The mind and thoughts are all about linear one way directional movement.
🔺The heart is more about multidimensional movement.
🔺I think that is why i feel this idea of ONLY cause and effect LACKS HEART and SOUL.
🔺It lacks purpose and meaning.
🔺I personally do not want to live in a world where only my past determines my future in a set in stone way.
🔺It means there is no possibility for transformation. I think life is all about the possibility and the opportunity for transformation - for growth and change.
🔺But we need to stand up and take huge responsibiloty to do that. I wonder if it is easier for people to say it is all cause and effect and opt out of engaging in the opportunities available to them in the moment.
🔺I believe free will helps us to be self determining; to make choices that effect our experience of life; if not OUR DESTINATION.
