Free Will and God’s Will

God said:

When you hire people to work for you, it is good to give them ownership of their work. Wise employers will give their employees all the tools they need to work with, will give clear instructions, and then let the employees own what they do. Own, in this case, means to take their work to heart and have the opportunity to do more even than they are asked. They can run with it. They can exceed expectations. Wise employers give their workers the opportunity to soar.

That is how My Heavenletter translators operate. No one stands over their shoulders. No one edits their work. There is no one around to do that, and that is a good thing because this way translators’ hearts can go full-blast. It is their prerogative. Having prerogatives is a good thing. It gives you a wide range. It gives you great opportunity for growth. You are not hemmed in. You can solo. You can take off in your airplane.

This is the same as how I give you free will. I give it. I don’t give you just a little bit of free will. I give you free will. You can soar with it. You can use your free will to make the world a more loving place, or you can take liberties with free will. It is your free will to do with as you choose. You can choose even weakness. That is your choice. You can choose neglect if you so will. You can choose to hurt others and yourself. You can choose anything you choose to choose.

Although all My children are entwined, you nevertheless can solo. Others can go higher than you or lower. You can choose right or left, up or down. You can choose havoc. You can choose blessing. You can choose havoc and blessing. It is up to you what you choose. You have free will. You have been given carte blanche.

You can choose from the menu as you wish. You can write in alternative menus. You can do anything you want. What you choose, beloveds, is your own reward. Of course, reward is not always even-steven. Nor is discomfort. Yet, given the long view, somewhere somehow it evens out. And there is always the expression: Virtue is its own reward. There is great merit in this expression. To do that which nourishes the world feels good. It is that simple. Nourishing the world feels better than catering to your single-minded ego.

By and large, choices made are their own reward or punishment. Your will garners a solid foundation, or it is based on flaunting ego. Of course, you can get away with lesser choices. The world has been doing that for a long time. Like a fugitive who has been getting away with murder, free will that takes advantage of others does not feel good. Even though the one who lowers the world gets off free, there is a shadow that follows him. His foundation is rickety. He has perhaps made a lesser choice for the assurance of some gain, and yet the gain is short-lived and not worth the price of choosing small.

Dissembling gains no honor. You may pretend to think well of a choice, yet you have a hollow victory. It has no substance. For a moment’s gain, you give up too much. You give up your heart of love. You give up your soul for a potage.

Now your heart and life are to become one. Within yourself, free will and My Will become One and the Same. My Will exalts you, and you are exalted.

carte blanche

They say that if the universal constants of nature were only slightly different from what they are, we would have a totally different universe. I wonder what the world would look like if taking advantage of others, in its myriad coarse and subtle forms, would hurt us just a little more than it does. It has been going on for so long, and look around and within – it's rampant, it seems to know no bounds. That's how free we are. If I lconsider the incredible affluence in some parts of the world and the abject poverty in others, does it not look as though greed feeds the one who has more of it plus better tactics?

Only, it's not what we really want. We want to feel good about ourselves and in company with each other. That's just not possible wherever advantage is sought. Advantage, it turns out, is a contradiction in terms. Everyone knows it and yet it's possible to shun awareness of it when awareness seems disadvantageous.

That's the dilemma Heavenletters are pointing out. Love came to be seen by many or most of us as disadvantageous if not Dangerous to Your Health. It had to be filtered, diluted, reduced or even given up with not a word being said about it. All because, while paying lip service to soul, heart, love, god, we secretly believed we were bodies and not much more or even nothing else.

As I understand Heavenletters, this seems to be changing on a broader basis now. Absolute belief in physicalness and its concomitant fear is eroding in more than a few of us, and love, pure being, is flowing back into the vast open spaces fear leaves behind.

Some go first. Others, like myself, hope to follow.

Your comment has reminded me of that ancient struggle to survive and try to come out okay enough without being totally swallowed up by this world of pain and chaos.
I think I can say I have started on the reclining part (as mentionned in yesterday's HL) but the struggle for me NOW is working in 2 dimensions (Heaven and earth) The transition is not necessarily comfortable and/or easy. I believe it would be if I had more energy and more free time to become aware of my new reality!

I hope there is a sense to what I just wrote, there has to be.. Now if only I could be persuaded that it IS ALL worthwhile(!?!) maybe life would be easier!

LOVE and LIGHT - Johanne

I too believe there is a

I too believe there is a sense to what you write, Johanne. And the question of whether this is worthwhile is a big one for me too, one that makes me swallow real hard, one that I try not to ask any more as it's driving me nuts.

Look, dear one, are we working too hard, you and I? Are we still struggling to prove our right to be here? If we "started on the reclining part", does that not mean that struggle relents to the same degree? Reclining should not be something that takes more energy and time. It should not take anything.

I would love to give up trying to be good or worthy, to do things right, to get myself straight, to work through things and get over my past and whatnot. I'm beginning, really just beginning to hear that this is about love and not about being a good boy or about any accomplishment whatsoever.

I just read something that makes it all so very simple. Perhaps you will like it too:

Think about love more than you do annoyance, and you will have a greater flow of love. That sounds so simple, you may not realize what I have just said. The more you think about love, the more love you will feel. The more love you feel, the more love you will have.


A simple guide

Jochen, what you have written strikes a very strong chord within me. In most of the important decisions of my life I have always described my goals to myself as making a difference in the world and accomplishing something useful. Something useful couldn’t be something material because then it would be gone when I died. It had to be something that lived on beyond this physical body, something that mattered to others. Now I ask myself is this reasoning just a rationalization of a vaguely but still strongly felt need to prove myself worthy and justify my right to have been born?

Trying to be good or worthy is a lot of work, I can vouch for that. It may even be counter-productive since it comes from a belief in lack. The Heavenletter you cite is superb advice. We are guided to a focus on love to experience more love in our lives. Instead of some external, objective standard, we are guided back into our own hearts. We are guided not to compare ourselves to others but to honor our own desires.

It does sound deceptively simple.

Chuck's advice to Jochen is wisdom with no agenda

Your good word to Jochen teaches unconditional love so well.


Yes, Chuck.

Yes, Chuck.

Because your will is free you can choose.

You can have your life choose ego, or spirit or the Author guide you in using your will.


The Acceptance of Reality

Who cannot share that feeling and will of leaving something useful to mankind, beyond death? And why do we have "doubts" on the same matter?

I think this Heavenletter gives a clear answer especially in the last paragraph: "Now your heart and life are to become one. Within yourself, free will and My Will become One and the Same. My Will exalts you, and you are exalted."

So if we move backward from God's statement, there must be a conflict in our mind between God's will and our free will. Furthermore we invented the fear of God's will. Yes, it sounds weird but it is possible when the mind of man has already profoundly split. God's will seems to threaten our free will. How can it be so if not because what God's will seems to threaten is nothing but our illusions. Reality is the Truth. The will of God is what we really are. And since we don't know what we really are, we perceive that as fearful. So to speak we demonstrate that we are afraid of what we are.

It all sums up to say that our "real" free will is not the ego's because we know that the ego is always against us. Fearing God and God's will is really fearing our own reality.

Once we realize (one day!) that there is no difference between our free will and God's will, we will be able to create. What comes from the ego can only fabricate illusions.
