Hmmm…. I am not sure if what I believe is different from you guys, or if we explain it differently, so I will give it a go here.
I believe in God. (The All, The Divine Source, The Alpha and Omega, The I Am Presence, the purple people eater, or whatever name you wish to give it.) I believe that the Force is the emanation of God. I believe that the Force has a Will, which is the Will of God, which is always life promoting. Now, this will seem like a paradox to some because bad things happen… But, it’s not so hard to understand. I believe that we all choose our lessons of life before we come down here, and those lessons can be seen as negative or positive, depending on our own perspective at the time, as well as our relative understanding of reality on this Earth Plane. All lessons are positive because they inspire growth…and are life promoting. The Will of the Force, to me, is always life promoting, always pushing us towards transcendence, always towards enlightenment of “all that is.” We retain that free will because that is part of our blueprint and the state of human condition. So, we can choose to follow that Will, or we can choose to follow our own will, but if it is not in promotion of life, or enlightenment, then it is not in accordance with the Will of the Force or of God.
Ok, I’m rambling now. I’ll stop.
