Cause and effect
During a contact evening, a member of the audience asks master Zelanus how the free will of the human being compares with ‘cause and effect’:
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Master Zelanus, I wanted to ask you a question, and that question will perhaps have been asked more often.
I have always been in conflict with that, and they are two questions.
The human being got a free will, didn’t he?’
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Does he have that himself?’
No, the human being is will.
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Oh.’
So not from himself either.
The human being is will.
And will is working.
And wanting has, represents your whole, higher, philosophical, cosmic dictionary.
The will is so deep.
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Now I want to ask this: now the human being lives in his karma, cause and effect; so then I would think that he cannot struggle against that cause and effect with his own free will.’
What happens now when you murder?
What happens now with your will?
What did you do now when you murder?
You go into military service and you start to murder people, what happens now with your will?
You have a divine will.
The will is life, divine just life.
Is that clear?
That is the will.
The will is also a personality; the will is feeling, the will is soul, the will is spirit.
But what happens now when you do wrong, steal, murder, commit arson, hate, accept the violence?
What happens now with your divine will?
(Lady in the hall): ‘That is consciously disengaged.’
You bring yourself ...
So you fragment the divine independent self in you, and now your will no longer has any meaning.
What is a psychopath?
What is an insanity?
Do you see?
So the human being has, now your question will be answered, the human being has darkened and fragmented his divine will, until there is no longer any spiritual will.

Our cosmic will
When the masters follow the first lives of the soul, they see that the will of the soul is attuned to its evolution:
So we saw the first death for this life, but also the eternal reality behind that.
And that is the new world for the soul as human being, and soon for animal and plant life.
Reincarnation lives immediately behind that.
And those are Divine truths.
So we were able to establish here:
Our first death, material death, the soul lives on!
Our first fatherhood and motherhood!
Our first love! But then we entered the next existence, reincarnation!
And now we already possess our own ‘will’.
Does the human being have an own ‘will’?
Yes, academic, child of Mother Earth, we were already able to experience that now.
That is our evolution process!
By means of the first death, so the material dying, we got hold of that own ‘will’ and went back to the material evolution, in order to enter the second stage and to also master the laws of that.
Can it be any different?
No, we have to follow this path.
And by means of that we master the Divine characteristics, it becomes our obtained consciousness, for the Moon, this universe, and for the planet Earth.
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 2, 1944
In Ancient Egypt, the temple priests tried to release and conquer the human will.
However, as long as the human being lives in disharmony, he cannot experience the cosmic will of his soul:
In Ancient Egypt we had to let go of and conquer the will, the life.
Then the life had ...
That will has a nervous system, a brain system, a muscle system, and then the spirit.
We had to conquer that life – what now becomes the will? – by means of feeling, thinking, experiencing.
And then you therefore become a living conscious self.
Do you see?
And this is awe-inspiringly deep.
It is cosmically deep.
Only for that, if you want to conquer the human will ...
But the human being is still not capable of that, nor the Oriental.
He can achieve something.
But not one person has experienced the cosmic will yet.
And why not?
Because the human being lives in destruction and darkness.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951
When Jozef Rulof returned from his spiritual journeys for the cosmology, he realized that the human being does not use his will for what the All-Soul and All-Source wants in the human being.
But when the human being focuses on the universal love, he gets hold of his cosmic will:
If I still think about what I was able to experience last night then I stand before my own will, the will of the human being, and that of his Divine personality, and yet people say that the human being does not possess any own will.
That became clear to me last night, academic.
The human being possesses a Divine will, but the human being does not use that will, because the human being wants to do exactly what interests him.
But when the All-Source and the All-Mother start to speak by means of that will, then the human being has to bow again to those Divine universal laws.
The human being gets a hold of the Divine conscious stage if the human being begins to work on himself and begins to think universally spiritually.
