Thanks, Ed littlefox. That really helped. I believe that. There are others who believe that they have certain destiny in which they are helpless to change. My own opinion is like what you stated, a variable universe. For us human beings, there should a consequence for each of our action. We choose our own way. Right or wrong. Our movement, decisions and choices will make up the outcome of our future.

Everything you have read so far in this thread has been another members opinion, nothing more. The only way to truly know is to make that journey to the other side yourself. (and not come back)
I too have an opinion. It goes like this:
Free will was not a gift to the mud and blood you call your body, it was a gift to you. You had it before you came here and chose to come here. You have it now and will continue to have it when you leave this world. It is not a question of what will happen to you, it is a question of what you want to do next.
It would be easier to stop the sun from shining or the season from changing than to stop the growth of the eternal soul.
Hope this helps. Love and light my friend,
