Free Will?

Free will exists but only in those sunny and simple places where it is all comprehensible. It cannot exist in the dark corners of your life, when forces you barely sense compel you, because you are human and therefore live with the burdens that you barely remember. Free will requires awareness, and all humans live in a world that gives them many things but rarely clarity on the question of how they have come to be who they are. We therefore live our lives propelled forward by forces barely remembered and poorly understood, making choices of lesser things.
