Addendum to my blog “ Our World is Orchestrated by Us”
And so you ask, If I orchestrated my life before birth where does free will come in now that I am here? Or is my life fated? Is my destiny set in stone? I believe that the following tools are all present in our reality. It is not one or the other but all.
First, we used free will when we orchestrated this life. The fact we forgot doing so does not make it any less true. Before birth, in the present moment and every moment since birth we have used free will, for we chose how we look at ( perceive/judge), and respond, to everything in life.It is our choice to make the decision/distinction that something is good or bad.
As Thoreau put it, so many chose to live a life of 'quiet desperation”, rather than live life to the fullest. We can make the choice to fit in and go along, or to walk to the beat of our own drum. It is our choice to question our lives and everything in it and then, contemplate, meditate and go within. Socrates said, "The unquestioned life is not worth living." The Question then is, God what would you have me know?
Second, our destiny is defined as an event (or a course of events) that will inevitably happen in the future. I refer to the astrology chart that show us what we have planned for this lifetime, it will show what houses will be affected by the major planets as they move through these houses over our lifetime. They will tell us how long there impact will last, and how they will express themselves.
i.e.; Pluto moved into the sign of Capricorn in 2009 and will leave Capricorn in 2024. Now in all honesty, there are as many interpretations of Pluto in Capricorn as their are astrologers predicting. This is just one astrologers point of view. Pluto is associated with transformation, Capricorn is associated with the earth, governments and leaders. Both Pluto and Capricorn are symbols of power and control. Its journey through this sign is likely therefore to set some world-changing events in motion.On a more personal note, Pluto can point to areas in your chart where you can achieve personal growth and transformation.
Third, Karma then is the effects of a person's actions/choices that determine his/her destiny in the next minute and next incarnation.
Fourth, we have heard so much over the last several years that we create our reality. Certainly we did before birth, but also daily, hourly, through thought, fears, actions, and choices. Because we no longer remember what we created for our life experiences, it is always wise to reach for the highest thought. “When you begin to understand Law of Attraction, and you understand that which is like unto itself is drawn, then it is easier and easier to understand that you are offering a signal, and the entire Universe responds. And when you finally get that, and you begin to exercise some deliberate control about the signal that you offer, then it really begins to be fun, because then you recognize that nothing happens outside of your creative control. There are no things that happen by chance or by circumstance. There is nothing that is happening because of something you vibrated a long time ago or in a past life. It is not about what you were born into. It is only about what you are, right now, in this red hot fresh moment emitting.
--- Abraham, Ester Hicks
This physical reality however, would often have you believe otherwise. When you believe that your fate is in the hands of people and things that are beyond your control, you lose that fundamental power given to you: the power to create. You make it that much easier for others to manipulate and change your world into what they want, instead of changing your world into what you want. Remember! You have a right to create your own world minute by minute just as you did before birth. You have seen and heard of so many lives where people came out of poverty or near death, or an incurable disease because of faith, trust, a positive outlook. We may never be rich or famous, but be can be flames, and spiritually prosperous.
Go within, listen to your Intuition and trust your process. Honoring the path you have chosen. Be like the alchemist and transform your life of base metals into Gold.
