I Also Believe In A Heirarchy Of Consciousness

I believe that every thing has some degree consciousness down to particles, and that there is a heirarchy of conscious beings with some control over lessor consciousnesses.

However, I depart from you in that I believe that each member of the heirarchy has some degree of free will.

For example, when a message is being sent down from the big guy to humans, the relay beings, so to speak, may exercise there free will and distort the message. It may be that a translation is required and that the secondary languages are not adequate to express the full meaning of the primary language. So everything channeled to humans must contain some degree of distortion or incomplete information.

So along with and probably as part of the definition of a limited consciousness comes the freedom to make choices. It really seems to me that free will is necessary to satisfy the will of god. Otherwise it would not be very entertaining for her.

I do enjoy conversing with you, especially when we can find some common ground.

Richard
