Sit quietly for 10 mins and look back into the story of your life and find one important decision that you made.
Can be anything.. Choosing your partner, choosing a new house, going to a big party any important decision changed your life..

Then ask this with a great honesty-

Could you have made a different decision at given circumstances?
If yes how do you know this ?
Was that the best and only way to proceed?
Was there any free will involved, as in could you choose independently of situation?
Was it you that made a choice or situation made you take the only way possible?
Can you choose something that is not "right"?

Write what you notice doing this exercise.

Then bring focus to here now.
Look can anything be different than what it already is? How do you know that?
What is that made the choose to be here now?
Does it make a difference if you think that you made the choice to be here or not?
Events happen, deeds are done, but there is no individual doer thereof."

Could you have made a different decision at given circumstances?
If yes how do you know this ?
Given my thoughts and feelings in the moment I could not make a different decision because thoughts cannot think and their is no thinker.
Was that the best and only way to proceed?
In the moment there was no other way to proceed given all other inputs/circumstances
Was there any free will involved, as in could you choose independently of situation?
Only when analyzing the decision now looking back are alternative outcomes possible, but there was no free will - which is very discomforting
Was it you that made a choice or situation made you take the only way possible?
The situation made me take the only way possible
Can you choose something that is not "right"?
Cannot choose something wrong because there is/was no choice
Write what you notice doing this exercise.

Look can anything be different than what it already is? How do you know that?

I don't know if things can be different that what already is. If there is a God it seems he can alter outcomes. Things cannot be different as result of human triggered as human behavior is determined by external precipitants.
What is that made the choose to be here now?
Circumstances made the choice for "me" to be here now
Does it make a difference if you think that you made the choice to be here or not?
Thinking I made the choice to be here now does not change what's happening but does change "my" experience of what and why things are happening
