Was it fate or free will? Written by Jean Slatter
Was it fate?
Does free will exist? If so, in what context?
Does fate exist? If so, in what context?
These two questions have been pondered and debated throughout time. My Guidance says they are both equally in play like two sides of a coin. In fact, the very possibility of free will depends on the possibility of fate and vice versa.
Think about it for a moment. Haven’t you ever felt like fate was having its way with you? Comments like, “it was meant to be” or “it was written in the stars” or “when your number’s up, it’s time to go” are all statements that we believe fate is in play. We sense there is certain inevitability to many of the events in our lives.
Conversely, it feels as though we are always making free will choices moment to moment. Something as simple as what you will eat for breakfast certainly feels like it must be a free will choice. Or choosing which job offer to accept; certainly that is free will. But then there are events that happen wherein you can recount many insignificant choices that all had to fall in place in order for the incident to occur. At that point you look back and ask yourself, were even the insignificant choices fated?
Fate and free will simultaneously
Ultimately this debate of free will and fate is one of those unsolvable mysteries that cannot be proved one way or the other. I believe (of course with clarification from my Higher Guidance) that both fate and free will are equally in effect, simultaneously, and that one cannot exist without the other. Both free will and fate are an integral component of the duality of the universe. Therefore, I accept that my life is a constant play of free will choices and inevitable fate in every moment – in ways that I cannot fully conceive.
I received clarification of this idea when my Guidance explained that we are actually a trinity – that there are three parts of us playing simultaneously which blend free will and fate in an inseparable dance of creation. How is this possible?
