The question may be asked, "Is it just that human beings with intelligence should have to give in to the perfect or divine will, which seems so contrary to the ideal of freedom?" This question may be answered in the following way. Let us suppose that one wishes to move forward, and the feet move in the opposite direction, or one wants to look straight up while the eyes, against one's will, look down; would life be happy although the feet and the eyes in acting so are only using their free will? The answer is no, for in so doing they are working against the will of the whole individual being.
