I had been thinking a lot about the problem of Free Will lately and reading various views etc. Last night when i went to bed this was still clearly at
the back of my mind as i had the strangest dream about it.
Being rather unwell at the moment (The Flu) i had the usual crazy mishmash of dreams no doubt caused by fever. This morning however just before i
awoke i had quite a lucid dream and i was shown a piece of paper that appeared to be A4 in size. On the A4 appeared people and various forms but they
appeared from nowhere, there was no artists hand that could be found. I myself appeared on the A4 and began speaking, i can't remember what it was i
was saying but my mouth was clearly saying something. It was me but at the same time i was somehow detached from myself.
I realized that the little me on the A4 had no control over his activities, over anything he said or did. He was just a creation, an actor on the
stage of the World. I was perplexed for a moment and disturbed until the thought dawned on me from somewhere that the real me was observing all of
this happening. I could not see the hand of the artist because it became clear to me that my awareness/being/consciousness was doing all of this. The
essence of my real being was the doer, the artist itself. It was impossible to see the artists hand because it was outwith what we call reality, the
It then dawned on me that as long as we think we are the doer on the A4 (the little me) then there was no possibility of realizing our true nature.
More than this, it also dawned on me that the little man on the A4 had no free will as long as he thought he was the doer. If he awoke at anytime and
realized he was the being behind the art then he would have at that point free will. Never would he have any free will at any other point, although of
course he likes to think he has.
A very strange but insightful dream that i feel has revealed the answer to the problem that has been sitting at the back of my mind!
