Do we have free will?
Will is not free if it is bound by the effects of our conditioned behaviours. Will is only free if we have sufficient conscious awareness to use it in a considered manner. Without conscious awareness we cannot respond, we can only react. We can consciously exert our will to work with the natural flow of Life; or we can subconsciously exert our will to resist the natural flow of life; or we can unconsciously sit back and do nothing:
• A wise fish actively swims with the flow and makes great progress.
• A stupid fish actively swims against the flow and gets nowhere (except very tired).
• A sleeping fish passively goes with the flow but learns nothing because it is asleep.
