The correct perspective between Freewill or Destiny is determined by your personality type. Both are correct for the matching personality type. Both are wrong for the opposite personality type.
Those who are ego based will most likely pick freewill. The reason being is that they are ruled by passion, the “I.” Ego-based personalities are all about what I want. This is why they feel that freewill is a divine right. However, Passion requires discipline. The Laws of the society are specifically meant to keep Passion in check. Laws are created to insure the safety and consideration of every member of society. They also give order to chaos. (Just imagine if there were no laws regarding streets and highways. People would be driving on all sides of the road. Intersections would be a snarled tangle of confusion.) Taking responsibility for one’s actions and following the law are the biggest lessons that ego must learn.
As you clear ego, what you want becomes a benefit to society. Example: I have a passion for working with engines. As a kid I tricked out my car and motorcycle and irritated every mature adult in the neighborhood with the roaring of my vehicle collection. As I grew older I opened a mechanic shop and had a business that provided service to the community and a livelihood for myself. Once the business grew to the point that it could sustain itself, I worked on cars for charities and the needy in my community. At any place in this scenario, anything could go wrong by making a choice where what “I” wanted or passion over-road logic or moral considerations.
Those who are born egoless will choose predestination. Their first experience is the Divine Expanse and the patterns that create the world. So, the first questions will be, “What is my place in the world?” or “What is my purpose on earth?” They are not about what “I” want. They are all about what is best for others or what God wants them to do. They wander through life randomly gaining experience and knowledge until one day they are struck by the one thing that they just “KNOW” they must do for God and the world. Once they have this experience, which is known as The Immaculate Conception, they are from that point on “On a Mission from God.” (I and The Father are One) All previous experiences were the stepping-stones to this mission.
