You say "can you imagine never have been or never going to be"? I've never experienced either of those. However, the "idea" of never going to be creates great fear in many people. If it's never been "experienced", how does the "idea" or "thought" "of never going to be", or "cease being" come from? I know you will say "the ego", all fear comes form the ego, but why does the ego create that thought?
Throughout my readings of non-duality I have come across the writings stating that free-will and freedom of choice do not exist. Does this mean that all actions are pre-determined by Oneness? What about criminals and drug-addicts for example? Can't they just decide to stop doing what they are doing? Or is it this way because they have no choice in the matter and have to follow their 'script'? Could you please clarify these points?
