FISU teaches the art of meditation and spiritual unfoldment

What’s the purpose of having free will?

The purpose of having the free will is so that you do not become fatalistic.

Many a country has been ruined because of this fatalistic attitude that “Oh well, He’s the doer and whatever happens, happens.” That is not so.

Divine will has put out a certain formula, a tendency for you and with the interference of the free will which is composed mostly of the ego because of its non-co-operation with the Divine will, that all the problems arise. That is where decision making becomes difficult.

It is very easy for the mind to bluff itself in saying “Oh, I have been surrendered”. Now you do. When does man say that? When he’s in trouble, otherwise not. And that’s the wrong way round because the mind itself is in a state of turmoil, it has not got the clarity to be able to surrender itself to the Divine will.

Clarification of the Ego

So through spiritual practices, slowly the ego is not annihilated but clarified so that the Divine will penetrate into the free will and makes the free will of relativity, act in accordance with Divine will which is the absolute.

That is the secret of life. It is not when you are in trouble that you sit in the corner and pray to God.

Meditations and prayers are not cures, but they are preventatives. Prevention is better than the cure
