Of Free-will and Plans…


It takes time for us to realize that … no matter how much we plan for something….. it might not always go accordingly. Our plans can go out the window in an instant, and at other times the plan takes time to fade away… bit by bit…. leaving us a little less distraught then the sudden shock of it all coming off and apart.

Spontaneity isn’t the answer either thou. All we have to do is let it all slide…..and try our best to slide with it. Because we must believe that we were all created for a purpose…. so perhaps that plan was in conflict with the role we must play before this world takes its final bow.

In our hearts we know all of the above….. and we all hope .. in secret … that we are part of the bigger cogs working on the machinery of this world, it’s existance and it’s end. That someway … we can make ourselves immortals into the walls and stones of this world and earth. That we are something big…. larger than life itself. No matter who says it, or how well you know them, they all feel what I have just mentioned. Because everyone needs to believe that. It’s a human need. To feel the worth of one’s self.

To qoute a dialouge from the ‘Matrix: Reloaded’ ……. :

Agent Smith: But, as you well know, appearances can be deceiving, which brings me back to the reason why we’re here. We’re not here because we’re free. We’re here because we’re not free. There is no escaping reason; no denying purpose. Because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist.

Several Agent Smith Clones walk in]
Agent Smith Clone 1: It is purpose that created us.
Agent Smith Clone 2: Purpose that connects us.
Agent Smith Clone 3: Purpose that pulls us.
Agent Smith Clone 4: That guides us.
Agent Smith Clone 5: That drives us.
Agent Smith Clone 6: It is purpose that defines us.
Agent Smith Clone 7: Purpose that binds us.
Agent Smith: We are here because of you, Mr Anderson. We’re here to take from you what you tried to take from us.
[
Attempts to copy himself into Neo]
Agent Smith: Purpose.

So … yes …we are all here because of a purpose. And as my cousin … in the recent past put it to me…. in slightly different words then the ones I am about to use ……‘If we all already have our parts to play… and that is pre-defined….. then are we really free. If God knows what we are about to do….then it’s already known where we are headed…. heaven or hell….. so really … is there any free will.’

I tried my best to answer it as it could . But just think about it if the same question was asked of you …. what would you say ? We must compel ourselves to think.

  1. Dear wiseguy, it’s been long since we haven’t met or talked, so hoping that you’re doing well…
    I completely agree with the thought processes taking place in your and your cousin’s mind, as I myself am an all time victim of such questions..that dig me deep down inside and ask me for the reason of my being..it gets very depressing as at the end of the day I realize that all around me its just…something meaningless..what we’re striving for…what we’re living..and what we’re seeing..but the quest has to continue whether we like it or not…
