Free Will?

Man is really free, the real man cannot but be free. 
It is when he comes into the world of Maya, into name and form, that he becomes bound. 

Free will is a misnomer. 
Will can never be free. 

How can it be? It is only when the real man has become bound that his will comes into existence, and not before. 
The will of man is bound, but that which is the foundation of that will is eternally free. 
So, even in the state of bondage which we call human life or god-life, on earth or in heaven, there yet remains to us that recollection of the freedom which is ours by divine right. 

- Swami Vivekananda, Jnana-Yoga, New York
