... What threw me was that they always align that free will with, for lack of a better term, 'the will of God' , or 'the will of All That Is' , if you like, or 'the will The Larger Consciousness System'. So it looks like they are without choice .... but actually their choice is to 'do whatever dad wants'.
This is why I love CWG so much. This is Neale Donald Walsch in his book Friendship with God having a conversation with himself
about what he was taught to believe
as a Catholic
and what he had come to find out
, and all his realizations about how the two diverged.
Here is a snip:
"Whose “will” is it, then?
I tell you that it is Divine Will. Remember this, always:
Your Will and Mine is that will which is Divine.
Oh, man, that’s wonderful. Wow. That says it, doesn’t it? That puts it all together. You have a way of doing that. You have a way of putting it all in ten words or less. That’s another way of saying something You said in Conversations with God: “Your will for you is My will for you.”
But you said something back there that struck me. You said that I have simply been “using God” to make my life happen. Somehow, that doesn’t seem right. I mean, it doesn’t feel as though that’s the kind of relationship I’m supposed to have with You.
I don’t know, exactly. But somewhere mixed in there are some things I’ve been taught about being here to serve God. When I was at St. Lawrence Elementary School in Milwaukee and I was really thinking that I was going into the seminary, I remember the nuns talking about God using me to serve God’s purpose. There was never any talk about my using God to serve my purpose...."
They are as like dedicated soldiers who would never even think (or be inclined in any way) of deviating from orders issued. And as they manifest their doings, they leave behind an ephemeral contrail of, depending on their level of evolution, anything from a contentment, to happiness, to joy, to a blazing, even searing, joy.
At first glance it looks like they have no free-will, but it turns out that they are more like ideal model citizens... not even a "J-walker" among them. To even suggest that it is possible to think of doing something differently than indicated would be regarded by them as horrific sacrilege.
-just my current understanding
I consider them sleepwalkers, because zombies is not a nice word. They will wake up eventually on their own, but I don't see the point in shaking them.
