What a profound way to express free will. I often say there is no free will, but in this sense, there maybe this instrinsic spiritual level. These
are what I call tests, the tests we receive everyday, and clues on how to advance further.
And with this also comes the idea of giving, giving to receive. I think we could all benefit from looking deeply into our fears, not what natural fear
of danger would be if violence errupts around us, or an earthquake tumbles homes to their foundations, for andrenalin and survival fear is hard wired,
but the deep inner kinds. And take these into meditation and journal writing, think about them in the depth of our hearts, and ask for ways to gently
explore things that are hard on us.
I think our guides/Higher Self keep us on task, and keep bringing to light the issues if we seek. And if we can see the patterns, we can break free.
But I also think we're all too hard on ourselves on the other side, and need to seek to learn gently. Examining these issues can help us evolve.
By the way I'm alot like your friend, and though I can write, cannot speak up in the right way at the right time, so I usually handle it poorly or
avoid handling it altogether. This thread really challenges me.
In turn is this not why we don't trouble ourselves to confront the leaders, feeling that since we can't convince our neighbors there is no point?
We need to find ways to free our voices and learn how to express ourselves effectively. This is really hard on many people, not just your friend.
Fear of rocking the boat, fear of group disapproval, peer pressure issues, speaking up, these things are instrinsic to the nature of many.
Starred and flagged!
