- The takeaway from this episode is … it’s your free will that’s at stake now, hence your freedom.
- Here’s what this will do for you … reflect on when you first started exercising your free will, so you have a baseline to “restart” from.
- Here’s what I want you to do with it … you must go back to the beginning of your life to examine how you originally handled your gift of free will.
What does it mean to get real with your free will?
It’s not like you had to do anything to use your free will.
Unlike others who had to risk their lives and leave their countries to get to your country so they could use the gift they had when they came here – their free will. They may have lived in a country that discouraged the use of that gift and even punished them for using it, but once it’s inside you and you know it’s there no one can take it away from you.
Has your gift of free will enhance your life, or has it become a burden that requires too much effort on your part to defend?
When you were a little kid, you didn’t give it a second thought, you operated by free will. You saw something across the room or across the yard and you went over there and investigated it. What you discovered from your investigation was what you used to make a decision about whatever it was. Was it a bird, a bug, or a plant? What was over there in the corner of the yard making that noise?
Curiosity is what originally drove your free will.
Investigating something before you make a decision is part of the process of living freely. Nowadays, with everybody telling you what to do, what you can’t do, who you can and cannot be around, where you can and can’t go, what you can buy and what you can’t buy … everybody is attempting to cripple your free will.
Many are intimidated by fear allowing this greatest gift of all to be relinquished. No one can take it away from you, that’s your choice.
Many times they are convinced that what they’re being told is for the greater good. But whose greater good? It’s certainly not for the greater good of the person who is being pressured to forfeit their free will in order to have their permission to do something, or associate with certain people, or work in a certain place, and not allowed to leave your house. That’s certainly not the free world the people who risked their lives to come here ever imagined. It’s more like the place they came from.
So, what is your vision of your free will in the future?
At what point will you decide to stand your ground and say, “no more!” That you will not comply with anyone or anything that takes away your ability to live your life freely through your free will and decide what’s right for you. What you are now experiencing in your world is that freedom is not free.
When you defend your freedom you are defending your free will.
CALL TO ACTION:
- The first call to action is to listen intently to what you are being told, what is really being said?
- The second action is to research it thoroughly, exactly who benefits from what it is you are being told you must do and think?
- The third call to action should be the easiest, but most people find it the most difficult – that is taking action that is in line with your free will.
HOW IT WORKS: The only thing standing in the way of your freedom and free will is fear. How much have you bought into fear controlling your life? Think back to when you were a little kid, and someone imposed restrictions on you – what was your reaction to that? What did you feel when someone criticized what you said? Did you go off to yourself and think about it, or did you go right into fear allowing their response to be the last word on the matter – never taking the time to think it over for yourself? This is an exercise of free will. Did you stand up for yourself or just let everyone run over you? There are consequences either way but choosing to apply your free will and stand your ground will never disappoint you no matter how it plays out. This is how you reach mastery over your life. ~ Linda Deir
