I make a choice to write these lines, you make a choice to read them. Symbiosis?

Choices that we consider small and some that we consider big. What’s the difference between the big and the small choice anyway? What’s in-between them? Where is the medium sized choice? People tend to say that it’s the smaller, more frequent, choices that makes you into what you are – in the eyes of someone else, of course.

My choices elude me. Are they made out of a free mind? There are regulations to follow, laws and rules you should abide to. There are forms of mannerism and other f*cking ideas of how you should act, react and take action while choices are made. I guess I never was much of a, think first and choose thereafter, kind of person.

“Most people regard having choices as a good thing, though a severely limited or artificially restricted choice can lead to discomfort with choosing and possibly, an unsatisfactory outcome. In contrast, unlimited choice may lead to confusion, regret of the alternatives not taken, and indifference in an unstructured existence; and the illusion that choosing an object or a course leads necessarily to control of that object or course can cause psychological problems.”

One Response to “Choices”

  • Sadhana Says:

    That’s why it is so important to let things be as they are: “With awareness there comes choice. And so you are able to say:’I allow this moment to be as it is.’ And then, suddenly, where before there was irritation, there is now a sense of aliveness and peace. And out of that comes right action.” Eckhart Tolle
