Same with the people in your life - are relationships predetermined?


We have free will in our choices, but full freedom of action comes with full freedom of consciousness in enlightenment. The more we are limited in awareness, the more our actions are conditioned by the past. But if we have freed our mind from identification with our actions and the objects of perception, then we are able to modify the effect of past actions on our present situation that would have otherwise been determined.
