Free Will, destiny, passive/active... Posted by Scott on November 21, 1999 at 15:14:40:
Once again, I am here, posing another question. I spend a great deal of time thinking, reflecting, and searching. I look
for answers to questions, and the questions themselves I sometimes wonder about. To take a step back, and try to gain perspective
with my life, I must be open, and I must put forth effort I presume. I wonder wether one can find his own cosmic consciousness
without any effort. So, that leads me to a certain confusion. I am only 21, so please bare with me, and ignore my lack of
direction with this post. I always ask myself, wether I am a product of in-escapable cause and effect, where each successive
event affect all thereafter. Or if I am in fact writing the story as it goes along, with every opportunity to manifest all
that is within me, in my soul, as a part of my cosmic potential. I read books, I here one person say this, I hear another say
that, its all very pleasing to the eyes and the mind. For it seems that many have a way with words, but what is the reality,
for me, for you, for us all? I think that is why Hesse seems to hold so much for me, because what i take from his words, is
that the only asnwers there are, are within me...
So I am left here, wondering still, do I float as a leaf would down the stream, letting the water guide me? Or do I act with
an urgancy, making each second into all it could be, taking ambition, and manifesting all from my own potential?
