One day when he was in high school, my middle son and I were discussing life, behaviors and effects. I had said something about the free will given us by our Creator and he said, “But, mom, how can it be free will when whatever we do comes back on us?” I had to laugh and said, “Ahhh, you’ve jumped right to the crux of the matter.”
And he had. Is the right, the power, to create whatever we want really free? It is and it isn’t. It is in the sense that we can do whatever we want while on Earth. It isn’t in that our actions have results. When we like the results, we experience satisfaction, perhaps even joy. When we don’t like the results, we might shake our fists at the sky, thinking, “You’re not the boss of me! I’m in charge here and I want what I want!”
Cursing our Creator isn’t an answer. It doesn’t ease our frustrations or solve our problems. We humans are a product of a universe made by Love and all of life is ruled by Love’s universal laws, such as: Life is a journey of small steps by which we gain wisdom; we can think about the past or worry about the future, but we can only live, grow and make changes right now; and, of course, the law of free will: We can use our free will to do good or cause harm. We can act from compassion and the wisdom we’ve gained from our living; or act out of envy, fear, greed or ego mania—and the results are opposite of each other.
Why? Everything has a level of density and vibration, differing levels of pulsing masses. Dark, pounding vibrations cannot merge with dancing light. Each fits with matter like itself. If we have been plotting revenge or using or hurting others to get what we want, we’re immersed in dark vibrations and what happens to us will be of dark vibrations. If we have been feeling the urge to make peace with someone or make amends, to give or share, to make a difference or show compassion, we are in and will experience vibrations of light. One state of being is natural to our souls, our God-sparks; the other is not and we suffer.
Apparently, we humans have been made in such a way that we, our souls, are eternal, but we can only grow beyond our ‘fall to Earth’ while in physical (Earth) bodies. Maybe that makes sense. If we were beings of light who chose to become physical beings to experiment with creative powers, it makes sense that we must work our way Home from the place we chose to do our own thing. Thus, we incarnate again and again to finally become whole, growing back into oneness with the divine, with each other and with all of life.
