How free is people’s will?

Question: In the My Lives book, there are a number of teachings about free will, including how it is possible for people to use their free will to harm or kill others. Yet the masters have also discussed how those who kill others have their mind taken over by falling beings. If you interfere with someone whose mind is taken over by fallen beings, are you interfering with free will? Are the karmic effects difference depending on how much of the person’s mind is taken over and how free their will really is?

Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Washington, D.C. (USA) in 2019.

Well, first of all, a person whose mind is taken over by the fallen beings does not have free will. You are not interfering with free will. But of course, the reality is that the person did make a choice that led to them having their mind taken over by the fallen beings, they always make more than one choice, many choices. But nevertheless, the question about free will is really how free is people’s will? For most people, it is not very free at all. They are hardly ever making free choices. Many people have not made free choices for lifetimes because they have been so taken over by the fallen beings and the mass consciousness.

But nevertheless, for you as a spiritual student, the question is not whether you are interfering with people’s free will or not, or how free people’s will is because you do not want to do anything that forces other people. You want to share your insights, your process, your understanding, and leave other people free to respond as they want. This is the challenge that is described in the My Lives book, that when you come as an avatar, you see the suffering on earth. You see that it is because people have been manipulated by the fallen beings and you want to free people. But the question is, are you willing to force people in order to free them or do you actually respect free will? Because if you start forcing people, you very gradually can get involved in the fallen consciousness and this has happened to many avatars, where you start fighting the fallen beings or trying to use force to free people from the fallen beings. This does not help free the earth from the fallen beings.
