...I feel that Free Will and Destiny are like the 2 sides of a set of scales.
We are each born with a unique 'Horoscope', a particular and very specific 'slice' of our Solar System, relative to our Galaxy, as it literally hurtles through the Milky Way at the speed of a bullet.
It reflects various qualities, and it describes numerous potentialities.
that 'horoscopic frame'...we have Free Will.
And that 'frame' is an evolutionary consequence (Karma) of the use or abuse of Free Will within previous 'frames' (horoscopes) journeyed through from past lives, and backward into 'relative eternity'.
Actually, 'an eternal now', but I'll get to that later.
The use and application of our Free Will within those 'frames' determines the qualities of the next ('now') frame we inherit, as a consequence.
(I hope this isn't too heady, it's easier to describe in person) :?
Did we abuse our Free Will in the past, or did we use our Free Will for the good of 'the whole'? (= every being on the planet, and the planet itself)
The highest potential use of Free Will is to the benefit of 'the whole', and not to the personal ego.
Suppose that being the case, as we journey on through this life with a 'personal frame' (horoscope) within which we have Free Will
, the Transiting Planets 'alter and tweek' that 'frame' to inspire and sometimes challenge our sense of Self, in the hope of expanding and evolving our awareness and consciousness beyond it's boundaries for the purpose of eventually establishing Freedom in Enlightenment.
Ie, true divine Free Will, inline with Gods, not ours, Gods!
We can transcend the 'Frame that binds', but that doesn't occur just because we want it to. Thats the ego.
It occurs over lifetimes of spiritual discipline in preparation for 'Grace'.
Priests and Monks being a great point in reference, they do not feel they have the need to act out the 'Freedoms' we take for granted and generally abuse (as a collective) in order to experience a far greater sense of Freedom and Free Will than most of us are yet to know. (?)
Destiny is tied into the same principle, it depends on what we 'need' to bring us closer to true Freedom, or God.
And that is relative to how we used or abused 'Freedom' in the past. (past lives or here)
While I think of it. 'Freedom' and the sense of 'Free Will' is a state of mind, not an action...
Freedom, or Free Will, is relative. Destiny is relative...to that.
We are 'Free', to co-create it...
We are all in these bags of blood and bone for one reason, To Evolve!
There is no difference between a biological being, and a spiritual being.
We are all spiritual beings occupying biological bodies.
If someone wants to walk through a wall, leave the body for a while, and do it, it is possible here and now.
We are not these biological bodies, we are merely using them to evolve, because they have a nervous system, the most advanced computer in creation!
Without one, we don't evolve. If we don't evolve, there is no point to being here.
That we perceive ourselves as seperate from one another, is the greatest illusion.
We are One!
Duality is an illusion, it's an invention created by the human condition to justify our apparent differences, and maintain separation.
Born of fear.
Time is another illusion. Time/Space is a hoax!
Time is the measurement of Space...It takes X amount of Time to travel X distance in Space.
Ever noticed how time seems to speed up as you get older, as your metabolism slows down?
Ommmmmmeditation really makes time fly right?
Relaxing holidays always fly by too fast.
Alternatively, remember when you were 7 years old and the next weekend took a lifetime to come around? Your Birthday even longer?
In a car accident for eg, your metabolism speeds right up, and time and images go in s l o w __________ m o t i o n . . .
Imagine approaching your last breath for a minute.
Your metabolism gradually slows down to the point of stopping (due to death). As that occurs time speeds up relative to the speed of your metabolism slowing down, images flash by faster and faster.
In the end, as your metabolism nearly stops, images go by at the speed of light. We have all heard the stories of near death experiences.
So, with that in mind.
What happens to space once there is no metabolism, to metabolise time?
(ie, grasshopper!... does the tree that falls in the forest make a sound if there is no-one there to hear it?)
It disolves into 'Oneness'...no separation or duality, and no time.
No illusions...only an 'Eternal Now'.
As it is. :P
Oh yeh, was that supposed to be about Electional or Karmic Astrology?
ooopz! got on a roll. :roll:
Thank you for the opportunity to fly for a while Radu.
