Yes, Free Will

God said:

You do have free will. I gave it to you.

You could say I gave you the world, and that the world is illusion. So you might say I gave you the illusion of free will and not free will really. You might say free will is a myth, perhaps a come-on.

Yes, there is destiny, and, yes, there is foreknowledge, and, yes, there are those matters you do not have direct influence over, although you do influence more than you know. It so happens you influence the weather. You influence the news. You may not know what is even on the news, and yet you have influenced it. You have more influence than you know. You always have had greater influence than you knew.

Look, if free will were not yours, you would be a puppet or a pawn. In any case, you would be a simple recipient of all factors in life. Beloveds, if you did not have free will, what would you be doing here on Earth? If every single aspect of your life were ordained, why would you bother? If there were no free will, you might sit like a blob and just let life happen as if you had no will of your own.

Fortunately, I did give you free will. I told you to go out and multiply. If you did not have an option, why would I have told you, beloveds?

I offered you free will and to grant free will to others. This is a mandate I gave you. Exercise it, beloveds. You are not a leaf in the wind. You are a sentient Human Being with a will of your own. You'd better have a will of your own. Who is responsible for your life as you live it if not you?

Certainly, you don't decide all the circumstances, and yet you are not to abscond from the responsibility of your own life and how you deal with the circumstances that surround you.

Certainly, fate seems to exist, and you are fated to use your free will. You have some say in your fate, beloveds.

Yes, not everything is in your hands. Or is it?

Now, the time will come when your will is totally aligned with My Will. You have the free will to align your will with Mine. As you come closer and closer to Me, what happens is that you find out what your will is. You find out that what you want is the same as what I want. You find out that you think the way I do. You find out that you see as I see. You have not lost yourself. You have found yourself. Do not think that you have given up your free will. You simply find yourself in a place where you do not deny yourself the love and wisdom that are yours. It is not so much that you follow the leader as it is that you recognize your Oneship with Me. We blend, beloveds, We blend beautifully.

The time will come when you do not know whether your thoughts are yours or Mine. So complete will Our Union be that you will totally embrace Our wisdom. What is wisdom, beloveds, but My Will? What happens is that you see for yourself what My Will is, and, therefore, you accept it as your own. You are not helpless nor hapless.

Yet you always have the free will to act one way or another. In one sense, nothing is a foregone conclusion. In another sense, you can argue that everything is a foregone conclusion.

It is a foregone conclusion that you will come to Me. And, yes, there is My grace. There is also your grace.

But, of course, all of this is palaver, because We are One, and who really cares about theory?

Who cares about theory, Theory is what separates it allows us options which is not bad in some situation but not in all. There is only ONE and I AM THAT.


Vince, you give a very

Vince, you give a very interesting insight. I hadn't thought of that. It seems just right, what you say. Theory, principles -- they separate. I am glad we are One.

The joy in aligning my free will with You

I am so grateful for this eloquent Heaven Letter which calms the struggle in my soul and leads me to the path of Peace and Love and Oneness with You! Free will is a blessing..and if I make a choice that is not in alignment with You, You so lovingly and tenderly lead me back to You...and through this Heaven Letter You see right through me into the depths of my very soul and speak to me...oh the joy to hear Your Voice and read Your Words...and the joy to discover and feel being in alignment with You. It is such Freedom God...and it is so easy and so difficult all at the same time. Thank You for loving me in all of my free-willness and Thank You for understanding when I struggle and wrestle and thank You for the joy that is in my heart right now in this very moment and I am at peace.
Blessings to all --
Let us join and share in our joy and love! And may those who are suffering feel God's loving Hand reach out and bless and heal!

hi gloria, indeed, "in

hi gloria,

indeed, "in theory there is no difference between theory and practice; in practice, there is!" that's what it said inside my 9th grade algebra book. so the practice makes for the perfection, as you and god so beautifully point out. it seems the practicum we are practicing is the real-time experience as distinct from the theoretical yakkity yak -- although the yakkity yak has its own validity and is itself always pervaded with the real-time experience, if we notice, for the prerequisite for an intellect to distinguish these things, it seems like, is a self-aware consciousness that provides the implicit context.

another thing i heard once that kind of sums it up is, "the only thing predestined is free will." that always made me chuckle.

continually enjoying HeavenLetters, i thank you!


Yes, continually enjoying Heavenletters - but I'm also presently enjoying your post very much, Kurt. Is yakkity yak (my dictionary defines it as "a trivial or unduly persistent conversation") what God calls "palaver"? For some not-too-well-known reason, this word - palaver - is a big relief for me at the moment. Has a nice ring to it, too. Palaver. Palaver, as you said, "has its own validity", but I can always feel myself relax when I'm told yet again that there's nothing to know or understand, really.


hi jochen,

palaver and yakkity yak... kind of the same i guess, but yakking is less beguiling and more idle chatter.

perhaps what matters is the context in which understanding occurs. it seems (to me) the intellect likes to distinguish, that's what it's good at, it's the nature of our monkey minds! but, for me the question is, is that understanding nestled within a field of oneness or held in a context of separateness? the consciousness within which the intellect performs its function and informs us of certain aspects of the world, that consciousness exists independently and underlies any intellectual understanding.

so, kind of like goedel's theorems where (extremely loosely stated) you can't show completeness and/or consistency from within the system, i.e., you have to step outside the system, the intellect can never inform us of the nature of consciousness. consciousness itself has its own validity in whatever form we experience it, oneness or duality. hence theoretical understanding is, perhaps, necessary, but not sufficient. the nice part is, as gloria and god so wonderfully pointed out, "You have not lost yourself. You have found yourself." and "The time will come when you do not know whether your thoughts are yours or Mine." It's like, not losing a daughter, but gaining a sun. heh heh.

if we accept the possibility that there is only one oneness (for how can there not be?) then the oneness must include our frolicing monkey minds, and the activity of self-inquiry, as well, which really makes 'reality' transparent for me. to play with that old vedic style quote: curving back on the (S)(s)elf, (I)(i) create again and again." one can obtain really nice contextual, transcendental flavors of the cosmic Self interacting with the local self, assigning and experiencing the different morphing roles within consciousness. as god's local representatives here and now, feeling the continuity of c'ness underlying the morphing, the taxonomies, the systems and the structures, that is indeed very relaxing.

feels like home.

Like home

Precisely. And so very well put. And then there are those moments of sudden, stark silence. Not much to inquire about. Nothing morphing. Interaction doesn't seem to be "inter" any more. Thoughts and words dropping off or evaporationg like tears, like beads of sweat.

It becomes more obvious every day that these words are true: The time will come when you do not know whether your thoughts are yours or Mine.

like home

yes, just consciousness.... !

"Thoughts and words dropping off or evaporationg like tears, like beads of sweat."

beautiful !
