Exercising Free Will - I - Poem by RAJ NANDY

EXERCISING FREE WILL - I

That eternal debate between ‘ free will’ and
‘determinism’, -
Continues to rage in our philosophical world!
While for most of us ‘free will’ remains a mere
notion,
A mere jargon for philosophical discussions!
For many a times our choice gets restrained,
By superimposed conditions or some monetary
constraints!
But when faced with the choice between wrong
and right,
Ethics tells us to remain morally right!
Should you exercise that ‘free will’ to chose the
wrong,
Karma condemns you in your life beyond!
You become subjected to destiny and fate,
Do we really have an option for our ‘free will’
as on date? !

(PLATO DENIED FREE WILL! EXISTENTIALISM & MODERN
THOUGHTS ADVOCATE- FREE WILL- IN OUR EVOLVING WORLD
OF FLUX & CHANGE FOR SHAPING OUR DESTINY!)

    Free will is the freedom of choice to do what one likes... determination and ethical values insist on doing the right...ofcourse evryone is born with freewill...the freedom of thoughts but one has to develope wisdom to be right in every choice they make......A good concept Raj, to contemplate...!
