Fear of free will, Fear of choice, Fear of taking action

What would make someone develop a fear of his own free will , thus becoming afraid to make a choice and thus fearing moving forward or taking an action ?

And would be the solution to that , meaning How to get over it ?

well how free is free will? can i go running through the streets naked  even if i could and if it was legal i would fear it because what would people think of me? then i think well what would i get from it? the answer might be the wind on my genitals right? then pros and cons the cons out way the pros in this instance. so i find something that's close i walk around the house naked maby or understanding that you cant do something you feel it. be with that instance of your self that really wants to dance the streets naked. instead you come up with another plan or action to move away where you meet loads of people who are naked for a living.

I look at it from the point of what is right.

When one has a good understanding of his morals, integrity and can see the possible consequences relatively quick, there is a lesser need to think about free will because then you just know that what you do is the right thing to do or at least you know that this is one of the best possible actions at the current moment with everything you've been given.

Notice how little will it takes when it solely involves just one person's interests VS how much will it takes the more people you have involved and/or going to be affected by just one person's decision. 

A lot of the debate over free will comes from wanting to break something that has been established for a very long time. When change doesn't happen easily and the desire becomes greater than before, it results in revolution and on a heated head people can go as far as destroying very high ideals despite  knowing that they are very good. Unfortunately, this is what makes it possible to introduce new choice a lot easier because over time people forget the other choice they destroyed, burned, re-written, shamed, made it deliberatly look wrong which successfully devalues our morals

I remember back in 90's there was a huge wave to burn and demolish everything that has Lenin's head and name on it. To be honest, even if you had very little knowledge about USSR and religion, seeing so many statues of the same political figure did seem to look  like a weird cult and too much into the face since he was also printed all over the money we had back than. So, one of the first things that was done after Soviet Union collaps is removing thousands and thousands.... and I really mean big number... of his statues (Btw Lenin's bust is on average 20-50$ on eBay, in case anyone is interested in preserving history, starting cult etc lol) Then the remains of Nikolas II with family were suddenly discovered in 1991 which stirred up a lot of pain in people's hearts. Perhaps this explains the Nineteenth century influence on my generation.  The Romanovs  were re-burried in 1998. Ironically, the main "trigger" is still in the middle of  Red Square in Moscow - a well-preserved corpse of a "Grandfather Lenin" as elderly people call him.... No, I am not suggesting that Lenin needs to be burried too... Noooo.... his body should never be forgotten  and especially what all he did. Sadly he was chosen and followed by people of the same sick ideas whose will power was obviously strong enough to do so.

So here you have it... a very good example of HOW How could cold murder of Tzar's family ever seen as the righ thing to do? Unfortunately, when the truth came out of what happened to them , it was already too late... Yes, they were royals.. royals enough to give up the crown.. why? I don't think it was as much for the "love of country" as to for their own good, family love and very high values. They couldn't control all the gossip and lies ouside the Palace, so they let the people taste its fruit to the foolest. Better to leave it all behind, then speak to the wall, lol  Nikolay II and Aleksandra were extremely family oriented people and had the right to enjoy their privacy just like any other family. Their love is still alive and inspires  many people! Isn't what Lenin tried to kill?

Just look at their letters to each other

(Note, at that time you had to go to the postal office to send a telegram, so everything you write was visible to the public eye back then as it is now in the provided link)

How many people do you know that speak this way (or similar) to each other with this much love, tenderness and beauty? Yet, we are all free to do so....

 

 

Fear of free will is absolutely valid. Always question the motives behind the choice and how humane its nature.

The desire to acquire more free will often comes from thinking that we have a "bad" life. Is life really  bad or someone else is telling us that? Each life's situation is the result of a chain circumstances that one has and may have nothing to do with free will at all but rather it is other outside things you simply can not control as in Romanov's story.

I like how Stefan Moulinex says "If you want to improve your life, increase your standards". That's it.

It is much MUCH easier to do something bad, than to do good. Less resistance and will power needed to do absolutely nothing than to put force and effort to accomplish anything. That's the reason why Good & Evil are not equal!

 

 

 

P.S. Read this: 

"Romanovs were secretly discovered in 1976 and finally dug up in 1991 after the collapse of communism."

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/aug/25/russia.lukeharding

"The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, commonly known as the Soviet Union, was a socialist state in Eurasia that existed from 30 DECEMBER  1922 to 26 DECEMBER 1991. Nominally a union of multiple national Soviet republics, its government and economy were highly centralized." - Wikipedia

Hi Julia, 

From my perspective how I understand your post, you're in stuck stage, till now you was living below opinion of others, it could be you afraid to express your self, possible you're codependent, that means you care what other people going to think about your choice, if you could go inside and ask your self » what do I need, what things I want without pleasing someone else? What's the answer pops?

Free will is a choice what you care about in your emotions in your mind .

Best wishes

Negative (or uncomfortable or pessimistic) anticipation formed as a result of past relatable experiences, conversations, observations, assumptions and/or  imaginations.  Things that COULD/LIKELY occur in one's own opinion.

Observe the diversity of comment above.  Different experiences, mindsets of the moment and all lead to different approaches to that question.

If you don't mind, what made you choose to ask this question.? What's on your mind?  And if you have this fear, please let yourself LEARN what will or could happen without anticipating. Free will can then flow freely again which includes the freedom to experience life.

Hope this helps.

Fear is based on ignorance. When we don't know who we are, our fear is rooted and grounded. I used to be fearful of cars zipping at high speed until I came to learn  & started driving at 170 -180 km. Knowledge & experience of particular area chases the fear of that particular fear. 

The opposite of Fear is Freedom (Free domain). So how can you have fear for Free domain. Its an oxymoron. Since we don't know what is Free domain, we fear free domain (Free will) too.

So I am not going into the detail of what is Free domain and Free will but keep searching and learning what is Free domain and Free will which will chase your fear.
