Longer Quotes About Free Will

"Your decision making here is crucial to your success. Never take it lightly and never assume that your decisions are not absolutely significant and important for the outcome of your life. The decisions you make today result in your life tomorrow. They determine what kind of decisions will be available to you tomorrow." [5]

"Only if you lose contact with Knowledge and substitute Knowledge with your goals and ambitions will you veer off course and find yourself again going in a direction that does not represent your real destiny." [6]

"Much of what holds people back in life is their unresolved feelings and judgments regarding their relationships, even relationships in the distant past. These feelings and judgments act as a kind of dam, holding people’s feelings back, arresting them in place, influencing their perception of other people and disabling them from being able to be emotionally open and accessible to their children and to other people." [7]

"You cannot undo the fact that you were sent here for a greater purpose. You may think it is a violation of your free will, but free will is only a gift given to you so that you can discover what is really true and important within yourself, and so that you can make this discovery on your own without it being forced upon you by some greater external power." [8]

"You have been given a free will living in this separated state—living in form, now unaware of your origin and your destiny, now unaware of the greater Knowledge that lives within you. You are given free will—the freedom to choose, the freedom to deny, the freedom to deceive yourself and others, the freedom to believe whatever you want, to imagine whatever you want, to think of God and reality in any way you want or not at all." [9]

“You are given free will, the freedom to choose, the freedom to deny, the freedom to deceive yourself and others, the freedom to believe whatever you want, to imagine whatever you want, to think of God and reality in any way you want, or not at all. You have this freedom.” [9]

“You have free will, even if you do not feel free. Even if you are politically unfree or socially not free, you can still choose what to follow, what to believe in, what to value and what to deny. It is to encourage choosing in the right direction, choosing the direction of your own redemption and self-realization, that the Angelic Presence is here to encourage you. Beyond this they do not interfere. Despite all the stories of God intervening on behalf of certain peoples at certain times, this represents a misunderstanding of God's plan, and the purpose and the power of the Angelic Presence here.” [9]

“Greater Community forces will not come and solve the world’s problems, at least not for humanity’s sake. They will emphasize the preservation of the physical environment, but that is for their own use and not for yours primarily… Therefore, do not come to the visitors with open hands, begging and pleading, greedy for their power or their technology, for this will trap you and this will blind you. Here you will lose your free will.” [10]

“You have free will in the world. You can choose success or failure. You can choose to follow that which is natural within you or that which is unnatural. But you will have to face the consequences in either case. God is watching to see what you do. God is not creating the storms and the hurricanes and the famines and the droughts and the pestilence. That is just part of nature. God is watching to see how you do. And those who represent the Divine, both within and beyond the visible range, are assisting individuals who seek to know their natural state.” [11]

“The Angelic Presence cannot interfere uninvited unless they are requested with great earnestness to be of assistance. And even here there are limitations placed because you have been given a free will, living in this separated state, living in form, now unaware of your origin and your destiny, now unaware of the greater Knowledge that lives within you. [9]
