No, I am of the admittedly Judeo-Christian belief that we all have free will, and we all have an effect on what happens on this planet, good or bad, as governed by our actions, born out of our free will.

In that events simply happen, thoughts just pass by. That one is just watching the world and their thoughts pass them by.

For example if someone does something, it's just a happening, an event. If someone wronged me, it was just a passing that occurred, and I don't feel anger towards them, because what they simply happened, an event that came as passed. I suppose it's a view lacking free will, although that's rather arbitrary. It's just seeing your thoughts as things passing by, more than something I create. Even right now, typing this is just a passing event of my body and my fingers moving on the keyboard, and thoughts passing on by.

It's very calming. Does anyone else ever look at this view? Just curious.
