Everyone wants Freedom! For centuries we have striven to live in a society that allows our own free will to be respected by others. In 1963, Lesley Gore sang the popular song entitled “You Don’t Own Me” with the lyrics:
Don’t tell me what to do, Don’t tell me what to say…
So just let me be myself, That is all I ask of you.
This was the ultimate understanding of free will. However, scientists, especially neuroscientists like Michael Gazzaniga, from the University of California, believe that “we will get over the idea of free will and accept we are a special kind of machine, one with a moral agency which comes from living in social groups.”
¹Moreover in this interview for Scientific American he asks: “Free from what?” and likewise answers,“What does anybody want to be free from? I surely do not want to be free from the laws of nature.”
Gazzaniga believes that we “react” through neuroscience to do what is expected of us. In this scenario there are always going to be a certain percentage of people without a strong “moral compass” who choose to do what is not expected. That too is expected. So are we truly free to think and make decisions on a deeply conscious level? Gazzaniga’s deterministic view, shared by many current neuroscientists, that everything is part of a giant program, full of sophisticated pre-programmed, neurological reactions, denies the personal choice to choose consciously in every situation.
A possible alternative, although not a popular one, is that human beings are far more than physical beings. What about spiritually motivated choices? Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said: “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” According to The Keys of Enoch® this is the larger picture.2 And therefore, our real choice according to Drs J.J. and Desiree Hurtak is whether we choose to align with higher thoughts from outside of our local field or limit ourselves to the local field of consciousness and the brain.³ That is our real choice. Otherwise, Gazzaniga is correct. We can think mechanistically and many people probably do.
If however we are mindful, a process of Buddhist thinking, watching our thoughts, we can make decisions that are not mechanistic but creative. We can control our thoughts, which may still fall under the jurisdiction of brain dynamics for some philosophers. But if we choose to elevate our thoughts, which those in the consciousness movement, like Henry Stapp, are saying is a real possibility, then we can reach beyond the local field and tap into thoughts beyond the lower layers of our mind-brain machine.4
Interestingly, people who claim to be abducted by aliens, talk about “mind control” imposed on them by alien creatures. This is certainly the antithesis of Free Will, where it is not our brains but some other entity’s brain that influences our thoughts and forces us to do things again our Will.
The Ultraterrestrials, or angelic forces of nature, are the complete opposite of these alien creatures that try to control our Free Will. According to Key 3-0-3, these positive entities will always respect our Free Will. 2 In Dr. Hurtak’s Merkabah experience, Enoch communicated, asking if he “was ready to go.” This very question showed the respect these higher powers have for our own Free Will, our own choices. So we would say regardless of the mechanisms of the brain, we do have choices. And those choices are what is important. Some decisions can be automatic in the Gazzaniga sense, but only if we are not mindful and only if we do not realize Mike Dooley’s maxim of ‘Thoughts Become Things… Choose The Good Ones! 5 It is also important to differentiate between the angelic forces like the Malachim or Ophanim who respect our Free Will, and those extraterrestrial races who abduct people without their consent.
However we need to petition as an act of Free Will for the Higher Intelligence to intercede on our behalf. For the Wisdom from the Higher Consciousness realms is from where we are given true Free Will: to choose what thoughts we choose. We need to respect our Free Will in choosing our thoughts and actions. For every moment is a choice between Light and darkness. Ironically the greatest act of Free Will is consciously to submit to the Divine Will.
