Are we living in a program?

Question from the Internet:

“Are we living in one big program?”

Yes. We are very important — we could say crucial — parts of a program that determines everything that unfolds in reality.

We exist in Nature’s lawful and deterministic system, where an all-encompassing developmental plan determines everything that happens, including a final, most optimal role and purpose for human beings as well.

This developmental plan has a very distinct origin and also a very distinct final state. Moreover, even the transitional states are also defined. The whole system — including human beings, individually and collectively — goes through states that are predetermined without any deviation from the plan.

Do we have any free choice in this program?

First of all, we have no inherent knowledge or comprehension of the program and our own role in it. We developed through millennia and develop even today, sensing and believing that we have free choice and that our decisions influence and determine what is happening to us.

We are blindly acting as if our thoughts, decisions, and actions have great importance. We truly live in a Matrix we have no idea about.

Still, we have incredible free choices in this system.

From our blind, instinctive, and clueless state, we can freely develop towards a state where we fully attain the system with its developmental plan and our purpose in it.

Here we are approaching an interesting paradox.

The more we recognize and understand the system and our own role in it, the more we also understand and feel that everything is predetermined, and we are acting like puppets without any actual, individual free choice.

On the other hand, as we constantly and consciously adjust ourselves to the system so we would fully accept and perform the role and purpose the system predetermined for us, we gain such an intimate and insider knowledge of the system that from within that wisdom and attainment, we would naturally act and develop exactly as the system determines since we see, taste and viscerally feel that that is the most perfect way of existence possible.

As a result of our development and agreement with the system, justifying everything that has ever happened with us and the whole system, we will tangibly feel as if we ourselves designed, programmed, and operated the system.

By this point, we will lose any thoughts of individual freedom or rights since we become totally dissolved into and absorbed into the system, feeling it as a single, all-encompassing entity we completely and unconditionally identify with.
