From the present looking at the past there is NO free will. In the present there is the illusion of unlimited free will. You can't change your past,
you can change your present and your future IF you already know your future with absolute certainty.
Past is simply a conglomerate of instances that an ego ID self clings to as a personal event unique to them... everyone alive has drawn breath and
exhaled, yet no its my breath... separate all of these "individual" memories of experience in time and poof never alone nor separate except experience
in which has not yet risen in the experiencing moment called the ever present future.
The ego self grasping as a self evident existing being has a compulsion to affirm eachothers existance as either separate or one of cohesion in
relatible experience. instead of just random contact of experience, one or society as a part or majority accepts as a reality. remove all of that ego
grasping as these events has conditioned? Then there is no past present nor future, just varied forms of contact with intention based on past
conditions these actions of intention whether thought form to be carried out can be either conditioned in a self as positive negative or nuetral
forming what appears as a solid separate existing self.
But beyond that ignorance... who is there to suffer be happy starve or be fed? When all are one this makes for a moment of clarity felt as a resonance
with all life energy yet in duality of separate existing selves demanding that conglomerate is unique to them? there is just the trap set waiting to
undo any realization beyond name and form.
A good question to ask, is when looking at something and saying its name in ones mind? which mass of particles is affirming the others existence? In
mental quiecence... a lot starts trying to affirm its existence through the particle mass one typically defines as a self... oddly enough the idea of
an existing separate individual becomes more foreign a concept as time goes on... and ones existenece is simply the attachments of others demanding
they exist by affirming that you must also, when it is just what it is when there is no such personal attachment beyond energies being exchanged...
of course some of them resonate in a harmony and some of them disrupt upon contact of the various fields, this takes place even without all the self
affirming chatter so words become moot except to convey a possibility that more harmony than chaos upon contact... that can be of a differing polarity
yet it is no different in reality as all energy has potiential.
Awakening is simply understanding the chain of conditioning and the other links to their arising also conditioned, yet beyond that condition, it of
course would be easy to take a negative approach and benefit oneself above others, yet that is simply an ego attachment that feels it requires
something beyond such experience it as already had. Those with selves are some of the most demanding controlling people one could ever come across...
insert assertations and foot is already firmly applied in ones own mouth or in anothers ass.
Basically alive and kicking... while beyond remains unaffected as to whether others so mired in duality persists or not, yet having been through it a
great compassion and empathy arises knowing there is no way to give anyone the experience beyond experience beyond birth and death, as it is the very
contact of others grasping that becomes cause of its continuance. pointing is simply saying lay it all down that there is experience beyond experience
that is simply all experience and yet none.
There has been perception of many things but defining them into dogma or other rote concepts of course only leads to more attachments and graspings,
so why toss more logs on fires to be consumed when so many wish to extingush such fuel for what is being pointed at?
I clarify what is already known... of course the greedy hateful and ignorant vested in people staying greedy hateful or ignorantly deluded dont like
it... but that sort of speaks for itself obviously.
