I L♥O♥V♥E FREE Will! Love, Love, Love it!
“Where there’s a will, there’s a way”. This was one of my mother’s favorite sayings and for good reason. She very much believed in the opportunities that life had to offer and in going for them. She was an encourager and a believer in people.
I don’t know about you, but as I age, I seem to have more profound wisdom when it comes to thoughts around things or concepts. And lately it has been around the words ‘FREE Will’. You will note that I keep putting the word FREE in capital letters. This is because I do indeed want to emphasize the word FREE!!!!
FREE Will means that we are FREE to choose things and thoughts are things so we can even choose our thoughts about things, people, places, events, and the list is endless.
I was inspired by words from Anita Moorjani on the concept of forgiveness and it reminded me of the power of FREE Will.
“Also, my NDE (Near Death Experience) taught me a lot about forgiveness and relating to others. In my NDE state I knew the love for myself was unconditional and that I was one with everybody. I also realised that if people hurt me or are rude to me I do not need to forgive them. There is nothing to forgive because when people hurt others they do it out of their own pain. Or if we perceive hurt when there was no intention of hurting us then we are perceiving hurt out of our own pain. If, however, I love myself unconditionally and remember we are all part of the same whole, then it is so easy to love others unconditionally because they are all part of the same whole too, and forgiving others is the same as forgiving myself. So, to sum up: if we live our lives from a place of total acceptance for self and unconditional love of self, it is easier to live in a place of unconditional love and acceptance of others.”
When I read Anita’s words it made me think that this too is FREE Will. We can choose to be hurt or offended or we can simply choose to NOT be. We have that FREE Will that costs us nothing to use it… it’s FREE! Wow. Eureka. I can choose to be in pain and suffer or I can choose to use my FREE Will and NOT be in pain and suffering. Don’t you just love it?
Even when it comes to witnessing the pain of the world, we can choose to be pained or angered or we can use our FREE Will and NOT be. Wowsa. I’m in love this!
So I guess it comes down to what kind of ride you want around this circuit called life? Like the old saying goes do you want to be happy or to be right? Do you want to feel pain and feel that you have been wronged or do you want to use your FREE Will and FREE yourself because YOU have the power to do it! WE have the power to do this by choosing and using our FREE Will. 🙂
