Why is all of this being discussed ? Why is all of this information conflicting? Why must a decision be made by someone else, and why do I get to make certain decisions? What is truth and which is false, and why are false's proven to be truth; truth's proven to be false? Why does the torment of life feel everlasting? Good or bad, dark or light. Why does there always have to be a fight?!

Rant over.

Do you understand what you mean?
Your questions are wrong.

Please explain how they are wrong? You can never ask a wrong question.

But are they the right questions?

Sometimes, putting questions lumped together causes confusion cos each has a different contextual basis. Forcing them into equal contexts causes contradictions and confusions.
Try coming at them one at a time, or in pairs, from a different angle.

There is an ongoing eternal battle between good and evil in the spiritual realm and in the dimension we are currently in...all the reasons why this is so...I am currently looking for some answers too.

All of these are individual questions. Seperate from each other. Maybe the answers are clear, it's deciding which to believe. But if you are born into something, you really don't have a decision. Do you?

There is not really a battle.
Don't young kids who see their parents having sex think "daddy is hurting mommy"?
The 'good' and 'bad' are really polar opposites that are in fact harmonising and interrelating with each other to create a sort of 'balance'.

But do you understand what you mean by asking them?
You are asking them with certain assumptions attached to them...that, "you are born into something", and that because of this, "you really don't have a decision."

These assumptions are directing your perceptions and conceptions to think along a particular straight line and that is affecting how you think about the questions you ask.
Furthermore, think about what you mean by 'individual', 'sepaerate', maybe', answers', deciding', believe', 'born', something', 'have', decision'.'
It is all rather complex.

Also, think about what you are expecting and also what you expect others to reply.
There is no simple answer.
Like a pond that has got muddy by someone mixing it up. Just be still ans silent and patient and let the mud settle so you can then see clearly.

That's a disturbing question to ask.

What if there are no expectations? Maybe the expectations are already true and there is no changing it. Maybe, just maybe, the questions don't even exist at all.

If this is true, then one final question. Who am I truly ?

It's obvious if you look around you with a relaxed eye; think with a relaxed mind.
We have up and down, in and out, left and right, past and future...all around us and in us is nothing but opposites. Is there a conflict between up and down? Is there a comflict between your left side and right side?
And like past and future, the balance is here and now.
