Is everything completely predetermined, or do we have limited freewill?
Is there a combination of freewill & destiny applicable simultaneously in different varying degrees??? And if yes, can we quantify the limited freewill in percentage.....like 10% to 20% or so......
Also, do we have more freewill in spiritual life than in material life or vice versa?
Or is the freewill limited to just a matter of choosing between material and spiritual lifestyle & everything else being predetermined?
The lord also says in Bhagawad Gita (18.57-61) that Arjuna's nature will compel him to fight even if he declines to do so............so can we conclude that all is complete destiny & the only freewill is the level of consciousness that we decide to live our lives through with? i.e., choosing our "State of mind" while carrying out & facing our karmas (Nishkam Karma! BG:3.7)
Sometimes the scriptures seem to contradict each other.......hence the need for raising this time tested query..........................pls help!
