Good and evil are human constructs with mostly a human reference behind them. Even if god says "I created evil" she is referring to what the reader regards as evil. So if god is neutral, it is because she doesn't have that classification.
Another way of breaking free of free will is to be able to tell, with certainty, the deterministic future among the imagined futures. We still have imagination but we know what will happen, kinda like the past where you imagine how it could've went differently but know it won't.
What we call free will is the ability to imagine different futuristic scenarios other than the deterministic one. And it's not possible to not have the illusion of it since it's a bi-product of imagination.Unless we get rid of that as well.
