The free will you are speaking of, was given to all souls, by the creator, to allow those souls to grow and evolve spiritualy, in any way they choose,
it is up to each soul, and no one else. We may choose to learn from evil acts or the good acts that are around us. This is the balance effect or the
ying and the yang. It is a balance of 50 50. What we see today that is happening around us in this world, the wars, the hate, the crimes towards
humanity, is our own way of opening our spiritual eyes. It forces us to search for answers to these problems, and when we find that our babysitters
(government) has no answers, but only find that they only add to the problems, we then are forced to search in other areas for the answers. It is only
when we run out of the physical search options, do we then look in the correct place for the answers, and that is within ourselves. The answers are
within all of us, and when we find the answers, the soul grows or progresses back towards that which created us, our creator.
Yes, it may seem that the balance has tipped towards the evil side, but it hasn`t. There are sufficient numbers of those who can see good around us in
the world at this time. One may look at the evil around us in this light, and say it does no good, it is bad for us. But is it really? We have become
stagnant in out spiritual growth, with all of the physical technologies and pleasures we have in our hands. When this occures, forces are created, if
not from within ourselves, but from something that is much greater then us (think about that one). We create evil ourselves, nothing else does. We
create it with our own minds.
Look back in our own history, and the bible is a good place to look. When Jesus walked among us, he was trying to teach those that would listen, who
and what we truly are inside. It was because of spiritual stagnation that he was sent into the Earth to awaken us. It was the divine plan. Did he not
try to teach us that "What I do, they will do even greater."? In other words, we, yes, I mean us, after growing spiritually, will be able to do what
he did, only in a bigger way. One of the greatest lessons he tried to teach, was to not to fear the physical death. But, to teach us that, he must
show all of us in a way we would understand, by physically dying himself. Now comes what many think is the evil plot, the betrayal of Jesus by Judas.
Remember one thing now, for the divine plan to work, all must fall into place as it should, even his betrayal. For the plan to work one must step
forward and do the betraying. Now one may think, how could someone do this, it`s evil? Remember what I said about balance earlier? We need both to
help us grow spiritually.
In the case of Judas, remember how it was told of his love for Jesus? Yes, he did love him, and it was this love for him that made him betray his
master, so that the divine plan would work. Now think about that for a moment. How could the creator condemn someone for helping to make the plan
work? It was only by free will that Judas stepped forward to help the plan work. In other words, he was not afraid to take the heat for what he did.
Heat? Another word for hate. And look at the hate that we have given him over the years. What does our hating someone else tell of us? That we are no
different or better then anyone else, and to hate, one must step down a notch in our growth to show this hate.
I understand that many will not believe this, and for that, I must say, it is your free will to do so. That is why for myself, I am not afraid of what
is happening around me in this world, because it is a time for a spiritual awakening in all of us. That is why things are occuring as they are, it is
to shake us awake from our slumber, to put us back on the road to spiritual growth as it should be. We are on that path to be with our creator, we are
on our journey home.
I hope that this explains in a small way, what free will is all about, and how we have used free will from the beginning of our existance. Free will
is not a bad thing, it`s not just evil, and it`s not just good, but a balance of both, to be used in what ever way we choose. For when we take away
ones free will, we stop their spiritual growth, we stop their chance of becoming one with our creator, and that my friend, is the ultimate sin.
