Free Will Versus Determinism


Life is a matter of choice, living and making. It coems from what we are born and raised to be. Conduct varies because we vary in usage of words in our defining our skills, efforts, feelings and behaviors in relation to ourselves and to each other. Personal freedom is what legislated laws in free countries work on improving and defining the more we step into the future. Look at a country that is being occupied: Does it have freewill to act and gain its independence or is it determined to be in this state for a very long interval of time before acting? Out of its own free will it chose to go against the invaders and rebel, determined to gain its own freedom. Is this against God''s will? There is no action restricted to God that relies and deopends on the person''s executing of and carrying out.

Everything starts as a scribble in life. You start your life with scribbles which anchor in your memory and could lead you on your trip in life. Maybe those scribbles become a primary itinerary for life,maybe,why not?Bold scribbles,italic scribbles,scribbles which form into letters,then words,then sentences,paragraphs,pages and then the book of your life.You draw scribbles and imagine what they could mean or resemble. In the way there are colors sprayed on the page which is yours to draw on and design as you please. You''re given all the drawing tools you need to draw and are left to your mind to draw the final picture which is complete with your life''s end.Life could be scribbles on a white sheet of paper which you should see through and make sense of. Lines that go in spiral forms or zig-zags or whatsoever forms,you try to make sense of all that you have drawn. Does it make sense?What is it missing if it isn''t?You need to make sense of your scribbles and turn them into straight lines.during your scribbling there is a pattern you follow which indicates your thinking and Mentality. It could never change with time. There are always points in your drawing where -when linked- form a straight line which shows how you''ve acted towards your scribbling and what you were thinking while drawing.you color in the spaces and fill them in. Are the colors matching?Is it a colorful picture?Is it meaningful?Then comes the question:is it the best you could draw or is there any better?You compare your picture with others'' lives and see that there is better and there is worse. Are you satisfied with yours?Did you study it before you left your picture for the other life(if you believe that it exists)?

Till when are scribbles acceptable?Have you defined a certain age for scribbles to stop completely in your life?Yet scribbles always exist in our lives whenever we step a new step in life in any direction.
You take a final look at your picture. Have you regretted going through those scribbles first?How do they look like alongside the lines at the end of your picture?How much have you developed into a steady person?
Lines,lines and more lines are what the paths in life mean. You have full control over your actions and decisions.10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react.

There are two roads taken in life:the one designed for you and the one you design for yourself. God shows you before yourself your reactions towards things and thus shows you that what you want most unnecessarily will be yours,unless you insist on not. Simply because fluctuation before something''s reactions which is steady one type of reaction shows that this is or is not your road.
A road predestined to is a road which will not make you impatient to get what''s in it or make you tired working in. It''s a road designed for you in which a step is preceded by a work unexpected yet profitable to and in the whole body of works you were meant to be doing in your working time. It fits your original nature typically.

''Knowledge is poe one does not gain access to the inside of oneself and to the outisde circle they work in.a person is a rectangular shape through which lines of destiny pass, the problems of life they face.the rectangle (human) is surrounded by a circle and that circle is fate.the arrow cutting through the circle starting from the rectangle''s heart outside the circle passing is the person''s hopes in achieving something beyond his or her fate.

Free will determines what you determine for yourself which determines the determinism of things and their not changing in act and form or procedure without changing the free will. Such is fate an such is predestination. Noone is predestined in things they are able to do themselves but with the help of a God and ability to surpass problems in the circle of fate. Determinism could be in the problems we face but how we have them lies in our circle of free will. Determinism is this way the end and not the means by which free will act, but to which free will lead, sometimes.nothing is determined but what we state for a fact in our active free will -determined.
