"Ask Grace" - Your Answers for Life
Free Weekly Syndicated Advice Column
(This newsletter is best viewed in HTML)
Having the power of choice is a great gift, one that
most people do not fully appreciate or employ in their
lives. We have choice every moment of our life, and
each choice we make affects and determines our
past, present and future choices and reality. This
week's column explores Free Will and the power of
choice from the time before we are born, until
I love answering this type of question that explores
the deeper nature of life - the truth behind the
mystery, and the mystery behind the truth. If you
would like me to address more questions like this,
please keep them coming (you can submit questions
at www.AskGrace.com). Of course, I am also happy
to answer broad questions about health,
relationships, money, and other issues that affect all
of our lives.
May you use your power wisely to make the best
choices for your life,

FREE WILL AND CHOICE
Question:"Do we have free will or choice? If so, who
is it that has free will or choice? Are the
consequences of those choices arranged by the
ANSWER: On this planet, Free Will reigns. Creator has
given humanity absolute Free Will and the power of
choice. What this means is that no outside force can
interfere with our individual and collective choices,
unless we allow them to, and no outside force can
rescue us from those choices either. We hold the
power of choice for ourselves and for our collective
reality on this planet, unless we give our power over
to another (which we frequently do in the form of
governments, bosses, authority figures, even to our
partners, etc.), but this too is a choice.
Most people do not realize their power of choice.
They go through life unconscious of the divine power
that dwells within them, feeling that they are victims
of circumstance. Their beliefs allow them to be led by
others as sheep, as drones and worker bees. Those
who awaken to their awesome power realize that no
matter what circumstances they find themselves in,
they have the power to change and to create
whatever they want, if they enact their will and
choice. This is how two people can grow up in the
ghetto, and one becomes a millionaire while the other
becomes a convict - the only difference between
them is the sum total of their choices and the
consequences of those choices.
There are many levels and degrees of choice and
Free Will that are impacted and influenced by a
number of factors. Before you choose to incarnate,
your Higher Self or soul chooses what your lifetime
will be about: what your goals and objectives will be,
what you will seek to learn and experience, what you
will teach others, and whom you will encounter on
your journey. Your Higher Self selects courses, similar
to a student choosing a course of study at
University. Earth is a great school in the Universe, so
in this University, you have some required courses
that are determined by your karmic requirements,
and you have elective courses that you are free to
choose. You will also choose an area to major in,
which is your life purpose.

support and kindness. Also wanted to let you know
how much I liked the reading. It was very on. It was
very uplifting. It was very confirming. It was very
comforting. It made me feel very positive about life
and my role in life. It made me feel good about
myself. It was very cool. Thanks again."

KEEP IN MIND:
I have been encountering many people lately who
have been dealing with issues of perfectionism. No
one is perfect, and there is no such thing as
perfection on Earth - everything here is perfectly
imperfect, which is what makes it uniquely beautiful.
The emerald, which is the most highly prized and
most valuable of all gemstones, is also the most
flawed. We must embrace that we are created in
divine perfection to be just as we are.
The desire for perfection robs you of appreciating
yourself and your life. It causes nothing but pain and
feelings of inadequacy, and makes it impossible to
enjoy the moment. Whose idea of perfection are you
striving to be? And who is it really pleasing? The
Universe accepts you as perfect just as you are -
who are you to judge what the Universe embraces?
If everyone and everything were perfect, then it
would all be perfectly the same, which would make
life on Earth perfectly boring!
Instead of fighting a losing battle of striving to be
perfect and feeling like a failure because the task is
impossible, choose to be "the best you" that you can
be each day. You may not always be at your very
best, but you'll be the best you can be that day.
Being your best and doing your best is all that
anyone (including yourself) can ask of you. If you
choose to be your best self each day, then you will
live the best possible life for yourself.
