There Is No Choice?

"There is no choice?" asked the child?

 

- Well - not exactly.  You, or precisely,  your unique *up-to-date conditioning* chooses, however, a predestination is more precise - although -  not entirely.

 

There is a logical paradox.  In fact, my child, you are a mass of conditioning that keeps adding to itself!  Your updated conditioning (your genes, your experiences, and learnings which are formed by the preceding two in relationship) selects from within the continuously updating conditioning and if one were to calculate your next choice using a Google algorithm calculation, the choice will be the only choice that could have been and yet, the updated conditioning will falsely believe it did something. But did it? -

 

"So -  reality is predestined then?" asked the child.

 

- No.  It is creative and random, streaming linearly.  -

 

"Am I not in control?" asked the child.

 

- Control is not possible, but one can influence.  You will have more influence when you realize that you are not in control but you are causing it to happen.  This sentence is unexplainable.  You will know this after you realize that you are not in control.  This realization will pop spontaneously and once you recognize the truth, you will have more say. 

 

It may be at any moment.  -

 

"Ah," said the child, "I am a being,  observing my updated conditioning.  I am the director reviewing the created work. I am the film and the film watcher.  I acted in a film for whose filming I was not present but I am here for the replay and it is my life.  My brain knows my destiny before I do?"

 

- You are presence.  You are the space in between thoughts.  The one who acknowledges the choice and then orchestrates an execution.   

 

But acknowledging is re - cognizing not choosing.  It was already chosen when you recognized it as the choice.  At any given moment, you are not at fault, yet you are responsible for what is next. –

 

The thinker thinks and out of that thinking, a conclusion - an equals to – pops and joins the thinker’s thinking and as it does, the thinker thinks.

 

 *I reference Roger Castillo for the term, up-to-date conditioning.

    I’m not convinced. Logic points toward predestination / responding per our up-to-date conditioning. Emotions, for me at least, says the opposite. Granted, my emotions arise also from my conditioning. But believing in predestination leads me down roads that grind against my logic … a killer was just responding as conditioning? He is not at fault and bears no responsibility? I more or less come down on the side of “I don’t know” like I do on some many other subjects.

    A killer is not at fault and is a victim of his conditioning nonetheless he bears responsibility, as we all. With what are you not convinced? The paradox is that both are true. It is predestined, but, we have a choice to learn and grow which will change our destination that is predestined. When you remember something you have forgotten, what stops forgetting and remembers?

    We don’t have a choice. Our life is predestined and random at the same time. Predestined because it is destiny and we don’t really have a choice on what we do but random because it is almost unpredictable considering all variables? Not having a say on what you in your life is a bit sad though, isn’t it?

      At first, perhaps, if the ego is not ready to transform, but realizing that I am not at fault but yet I am responsible and can learn and grow, has been the single most freeing realization. It was the turning up of awareness, pumping up the volume. Suddenly, I saw it all differently. The differently offered me a peaceful mind. I once heard or read that one meets one’s destiny as though destiny is waiting for us to come to it. It is the opposition to that destiny that causes our misery. I don’t find it sad to learn there is no control and through that understanding, gain peace of mind.

    Like a flood. We can’t control floods but we may influence the paths they take, create additional or alternate routes for them.

    Interesting thoughts. I will do some research on this and respond later.
