The greatest possible free choice

Question from the Internet:

“Why are the things the way they are?”

The actual meaning of our life is to research and recognize the 100% purposeful flow of everything that happens with us in life.

At this stage we feel ourselves in a seemingly random, haphazard world, where we have individual free choice and we are forced to make decisions all the time.

With our inherently egocentric, subjective consciousness and perception we are trapped in this seemingly simple, constantly changing reality, where we can’t make plans even from day to day, and we stumble from one crisis to another - both individually and collectively.

In truth we exist in a perfectly ordered, predetermined flow of development which leads to a “happy ending”, a final, most optimal state of integration of Nature’s started with us being the conscious independent, “insider observers” of this perfection.

But in order to reach that perfect state, our evolutionary, Human purpose in life, we need to go through a unique educational process, a gradual “awakening” to the actual, true reality from this “dream”, illusion we are born into, we live in.

We don’t have a free choice about the process, we don’t have a free choice about the final state, neither about the states we go through. But we can learn to choose how we go through the states and the whole process.

If we understand the system and its plan and can anticipate in the immediate next steps and consciously, proactively adjust, change ourselves towards what awaits us, then we will tangibly, realistically feel as if we ourselves decided the next step and we control reality, instead of the system pushing us towards its predetermined states forcefully - as it had been happening until now for millennia.

While this might sound like a minimal difference, in fact this is the greatest possible free choice in reality, coming to understand the system as if we designed and governed it through that conscious, proactive self-adjustment, “taking a step towards reality’s” next state by our own effort!
