“Life is but a journey upon which you embark.
As you decend from your eternal home, you are given a boon: CHOICE.
The promise contains your power“
Kabir Munjal – The Seeker of Nothing: A fable on owning your life
This is the most powerful tool you have – choice.
If you think about it long enough this in fact the only tool we have and the only thing that defines us as humans.
Free will – choice that can change everything and shapes the humanity for ages.
Some might say that there is no choice or rather that Free Will is ilusion ( Hello Sam Harris 😉 )
But we still are conscius agents that everyday and every moment have this ability to choose. The fact that all the choices come from cause and effect that is guiding how universe evolves does not matter.
Every single moment of your life, from the moment you wake up to the moment you fall asleep you can make a difference with your choices. The liberating fact is that you should not be blamed for the “wrong” choices nor you should take pride in the “good” ones. Both of that reactions is ego and when you realize that you might just become a better person.
Every bit of your efford, every single act of kindness and love should be cherished but not possessed and held to. Because we are born from this world the same as we diminish – without nothing.
I hope this is more empowering then depressing – in fact I will let you choose for yourself 🙂
