How to measure Free Will
First Test: Quiet your mind. Be still and listen to the silence. Sustain this state for a while.
If you can not quiet your mind you do not have control over it. It goes around disturbing your peace and quiet. If there is unwanted chatter in your head then you are not free to enjoy the moment.
Here is a more serious test: Exercise your will to create the emotion of gratitude, or love, or any other emotion in the spectrum of happiness. Keep it going for the day. Even keep it going for the week. Do you have the will power to do so?
Does something distract your attention and upset your emotions?
If you are not able to choose your emotions through out the day or quiet your mind then what is doing the choosing?
When you realize you don't have choices over these simple, yet vital issues of your happiness you can either ignore it, or take up the fight to reclaim your will power over your mind and emotional state.
