Free Will is something that has been grossly misinterpreted. Most see it as making a decision or choice without outside influences. Problem is that we all have been programmed since the day we were born. How are you going to make a decision that is yours and yours alone when nothing in your mind is original? Did you just decide one day that you were going to get up and go to school? Did you decide what religion you were going to be? Men, did you decide you had to be mister macho? Women, did you decide you had to wear make up to be visually pleasing for men? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the answer is no.
What is Will? It is your intent, your purpose, your desire or your passion. In the legal sense, it is a document that declares a person wishes on how their property and things will be distributed after they die. This is the only time most people ever use their Will. They don’t use it till they are dead. So Will has to do with your wishes too. Your wishes are your dreams, your wants, your desires or your preferences.
Free means not hampered, not constrained, no chains or being unrestricted. But Free can also mean you are lacking something. Like you have a free hour, you are lacking something to do. Most people are free of insight, they lack insight. It also means to let someone off the hook or absolve them. Free a person from their responsibility. It can also mean to relieve, like freeing your mind from anxiety.
Our etymology speaks to us. As I have shown in previous posts before, the leaders of this world are not lying to us. They are just using a play on words. Let’s use Will as your intent or your desires. That is what Will is. Free Will would become unrestricted intent or desires, lacking intent or desires, or absolving intent or desires. Very few in this world have unrestricted intent or desire. Most have chains on their minds. The ones with Free Will in this sense become the Katherine Hepburn, Michael Jordan, Alex Morgan, Robert De Niro, Aretha Franklin or Leonardo Da Vinci. They will do what they love no matter what.
Free Will can also mean lack of intent or desire. This is the masses on a grand scale. Everyone is worried about what others will think. They want to conform and fit in. Free Will can also mean to relieve or absolve someone of their intents and desires. This is what this world does. This world keeps people in a state of fear. I have shown before that the opposite of desire is fear. When you are in fear, you don’t want to do what you fear. You become desire less. This world does its best to keep people in a state of fear and anxiety, so they relieve us or absolve us of our will.
When they say people of this world have Free Will, they are not lying to you. They know very few will break the chains to live their dreams. They know we have been trained to conform. People really believe they must conform and fit in. They accept that a group or society must give them a roll to play. People will give up their sovereignty to fit into the mob. They have Free Will because they have no intent, purpose or desires of their own. They have no responsibility for their own life and they love it. So Free Will is a choice, just not in the way most think. You can choose to live your life where you have no control over your decisions or your can do what you love. We can break our chains and choose our own destiny or you can go with our programing and let our destiny be chosen for us. When we choose to do what we love, we answer our Call to Adventure.
