Finding Your Inner Life Coach – Predestination vs Free Will
Join me Wednesday January 11th from 12 – 1 pm EST for a very deeply honest conversation about predestination and free will. Learn how they quite effectively exist simultaneously. Or watch later in the Archives on CCN’s website.
Do we live in a world where everything is already predestined? Weren’t the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Lion already hanging out on the path ahead of Dorothy? Wasn’t she, then, predestined to meet them?
A strict definition of predestination feels too much like powerlessness to me! Is life already laid out ahead of us and we simply, accidentally stumble upon predetermined people, places, and things? This makes me feel like that puppet on a string rather than Soul free to grow and learn via the many dimensions and universes… or not…
Can free will and predestination exist simultaneously? Harmoniously? Advantageously?
Why not? Surrender to what is and then practicing silence upon awakening to a new person, place, or thing could be the two missing pieces! Artful Surrender and Silence! Practicing prāmedātion, the mindful combination of prayer, meditation, and contemplation allows for an expansion in our state of consciousness, in our awareness. This elevation in perspective allows a Higher Power to flow into our own little universe, which allows a higher choice to be made. In other words, we choose from the entire forest rather than just a few trees.
This broader perspective manifests from the inner universes where Einstein, Mozart, and Thoreau went to capture original thoughts. It’s also where Edgar Cayce traveled to tap into the Akashic Records. It’s a place where past, present, and future exist simultaneously, without the hindrance of the limited experience of time and space. We have been unable to see beyond a limited set of choices and therefore consider predestination to be the ultimate truth.
Our choices are limited only by of our own blindness, our own ignorance, our own lack of awareness that another choice exists. Or maybe we don’t even see the need for multiple choices. Once again we can choose to be a puppet on a string.
Or we can choose to be Soul uncovering endless possibilities.
Even dreams can feel like predestination. I’ll share some of my own. Join me Wednesday January 11th, 2017 from 12 to 1 pm EST. I will be talking about all of this and more.
