A Quote by Lena Lees on kuan yin, planetary imprint, free will, deviants, planetary karmic build-up, grand experiment, and dualities

"There is planetary karmic build-up. It's nothing the planet did: more like a pattern of energy on the planet," replies Kuan Yin. "Whenever an event occurs, there is a "planetary imprint". Energies are drawn to that imprint. Energies are then drawn to the existing energies.The energies that are here on earth have free will. When you mix free will you get certain deviants. It is intended to be a planet for this purpose. Earth represents a certain grade similar to a school. It's all a grand experiment. It's possible to completely re-create this earth," insists Kuan Yin. "You'll kill yourselves before you kill the earth...We're talking in dualities because dualities are built into your language. You think that just because there is an absence of good, for instance, that evil exists. This is not so. In fact, things are far more intricate."

A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on economy, free will, liberty, and freedom

Neither the entrepreneurs nor the farmers nor the capitalists determine what has to be produced. The consumers do that.

A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on cooperation, society, and free will

The member of a contractual society is free because he serves others only in serving himself. What restrains him is only the inevitable natural phenomenon of scarcity.

A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on human action, free will, and economy

The vigorous man industriously striving for the improvement of his condition acts neither more nor less than the lethargic man who sluggishly takes things as they come. For to do nothing and to be idle are also action, they too determine the course of events.

A Quote by Newton on spirit, matter, freedom, liberty, and free will

This process, this method necessary to man’s survival and prosperity upon the earth, has often been derided as unduly or exclusively “materialistic.” But it should be clear that what has happened in this activity proper to man’s nature is a fusion of “spirit” and matter; man’s mind, using the ideas it has learned, directs his energy in transforming and reshaping matter into ways to sustain and advance his wants and his life. Behind every “produced” good, behind every man-made transformation of natural resources, is an idea directing the effort, a manifestation of man’s spirit.

The individual man, in introspecting the fact of his own consciousness, also discovers the primordial natural fact of his freedom: his freedom to choose, his freedom to use or not use his reason about any given subject. In short, the natural fact of his “free will.” He also discovers the natural fact of his mind’s command over his body and its actions: that is, of his natural ownership over his self.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on free enquiry, free will, dogma, religion, belief, and faith

So in this case, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering' — then you should abandon them.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)
