[This article is currently being worked on --- Update Feb 2019: since I wrote the original version in August 2018, my views and understanding have evolved; specifically I do not see a soul as only a unit anymore, but as a composite. ]
Here is a brief summary of my current thinking about the basis of reality, based on some 25 years of research and lived experience, looking into the deeper nature of Being. I will expand on this further posts.
9.A more advanced view of Souls and Oversouls and more: both individuals and communities

12. We are continually guided
As we are going through life, we do get help “from the other side”, for example from our spiritual teachers and guides. If you prefer, some call them guardian angels. They place ideas and thoughts in our minds at key moments. I am becoming better at picking up such insights.
Likewise, there are synchronicities where external conditions match our internal state. I believe, there are no coincidences. Rather, these are arranged little pointers, like an exclamation mark to a situation, to make us take notice.
All we must do is listen and pay better attention to receive guidance.
13. Free Will and Destiny.
Our life plan and life challenges are akin to destiny. However, they are not predestined in the sense that they must happen, but are only set up as high probabilities, which means, they may not happen.
Furthermore, at any time in our life, we have free choice or free will. So when a challenge presents itself, through free choice we can go either way and choose our reaction to it. Some choices will reflect that we have mastered the test, others will not.
So it is not that everything is predestined to happen, but we write our own lives though our choices, and thus are able to learn.
This, to me, solves the long standing problem of free will or destiny, meaning, all is predestined. It is not free will VERSUS destiny, but free will AND destiny.
14. All of this is true, and none of this is true, and both all and none of this are true, and neither both and none of this are true.
Confused? Good. Now start living, and form your own unique viewpoint.
Namaste — I bow to you and the Divine in you.
