LOVING USE OF FREE WILL

Resource: Divine Truth Website

Introduction

What is our “Will”

It is our ability to develop, experience and satisfy the following without restraint; emotions, desires and passions, intentions, beliefs, thoughts.

And to make; choices and decisions that result in actions that not only affect our own lives, but also the lives of others and our environment.

Why Was The Gift Of “Free Will” Given?

So that we can be free-thinking, feeling, sentient, self and environmentally aware beings.

So that we must take full personal responsibility for our own lives and our own creations.

So that we can experience love of all types, including God’s Love – without free will, love would not be a feeling we could feel and express, since Love is a gift given to others, and cannot be forced upon others.

So that we can discover Truth – without free will, truth would be forced upon us, without it being something that we could experience the joy of discovering.

So that we can experience ourselves – without free will, we cannot be completely self-aware, and be completely self-responsible.

So that we can choose our future – without free will, our future would already be pre-determined, or fated by a higher power, or by the universe itself.

How & When Is It “Free”?

Will is completely “Free” on earth in that;

God does not:

Limit or restrain, or restrict our use of our Will while on earth

Place immediate restrictions that we notice while on earth

Move us to locations on earth that match the desires we have

Force us to be loving before we can enjoy better surroundings

God has:

Created Laws that cannot be broken without penalty or consequence

The consequence is imposed upon the soul as soon as the Law is broken

These consequences accumulate upon the soul, until we begin noticing them

Important Note:

All pain and suffering on earth, such as sickness, disease, accidents, and death are all results of our own use of will, or someone else’s use of will, out of harmony with God’s Love.

Will is relatively “Free” in the spirit world after you die in that;

God now:

Limits or restrains, or restricts our use of our Will (what you sow, you will reap)

Places immediate restrictions that we can see (so others in spirit cannot be damaged)

Moves us to locations in the spirit world that match the desires we have

Ensures that we must be loving before we can enjoy better surroundings

Ensures that the pain of unloving use of Will is more extreme

Waits for us to desire to pay for the consequences of our use of Will on earth

God has still:

Laws in operation that cannot be broken without penalty or consequence

Consequence is imposed upon the soul as soon as the Law is broken

Consequences accumulate upon the soul, until we begin noticing them

Will is completely “Free” at all times and in all locations when;

We use our will in complete harmony with God’s Love and Laws

We make all choices and decisions in harmony with God’s Love and Laws

We have all emotions, feelings, intentions, thoughts, and desires in harmony with God’s Love

The Link Between Free Will and Personal Responsibility

The Ways We Give Away Our Will

Giving our “Will” to God, doing “God’s Will”

Giving our “Will” to others, doing the Will of others

Denying our own “Will” and assuming a state of “ignorance”

The Effects Of Giving Away Our Will

Doing “God’s Will” results in;

God does not accept a person’s assumption they are doing God’s Will

God does not take responsibility for our exercise of will out of harmony with God’s Love

God will not accept our desire to avoid our fear of taking complete personal responsibility

We are not honouring the gift when we attempt to give it straight back to God

Actually God’s Will is that we discover and use our will in harmony with His Love & Laws

Giving our “Will” to others, doing the Will of others results in;

All of the effects listed under doing “God’s Will” plus;

We are avoiding fears, and this brings with it pain in our life and the lives of others

We support others addictions, and so bear partial responsibility of what this creates

Outcomes for ourselves and others will be painful

Denying our own “Will” and assuming a state of “ignorance” results in;

All of the effects listed under both doing “God’s Will” and giving our will to others, plus;

Stagnation of our own development

Lack of knowledge and awareness of our own environment

Responsibility for everything we create by inaction that is out of harmony with Love

The Pain/Pleasure Relationship To The Exercise Of Will

Unloving Choices

Always results in pain and suffering in the short and long term

If we are insensitive emotionally, we will not feel the short term pain within our soul

When engaged in the longer term, will always result in suffering

When we arrive in the spirit world, there will be compensation needed to pay for the choices

When we arrive in the spirit world, our pain and suffering for unloving choices will increase

This can only be removed by compensation or repentance

Please note: This applies whether we were aware of the unloving choice or not. The pain (immediate) and suffering (long term) gives us the feedback needed to see that we have made unloving choices either individually or collectively

Loving Choices

Always result in pleasure and joy in the short and long term

If we are insensitive emotionally, we may not feel the short term pleasure

When engaged in the longer term, will always result in pleasure and joy

When we arrive in the spirit world, there will be rewards for the choices we made

When we arrive in the spirit world, our pleasure and joy will increase

There is no need for compensation or repentance

Please note: This applies whether we were aware of the loving choice or not. The pleasure (immediate) and joy (long term) gives us the feedback needed to see that we have made loving choices either individually or collectively
