The tremendous power of choice

Whatever choice we make in life, serves as an exclusion of everything else. Every single moment is a crossroad. By choosing a path, we cannot simultaneously walk any of the other paths.

That’s tremendous power that we have, if one is to consider the option – which again – is also within our power.
The option is choosing not to choose. By making this choice, we become observers, basking in infinite potential: anything is possible – any road can be taken at any given time, yet is left untreaded.
This too has tremendous beauty and power, although of a very different kind.

Further practicing our freedom to choose, we can alternate between times when we choose to take action (via thought, word or deed) thereby treading a particular path, and other times when we choose to “zoom out”, separate ourselves from the “equation” and simply realize the unmanifested potential of being able to choose at any point.

  1. I enjoyed reading this piece. One of my favorite teachers likes to sign off her missives with the closing: Love without choice.

  2. Thanks for sharing. Your thoughts reminded me of a saying, namely “readiness to serve”.

  3. I think it’s an important observation- that we don’t have to choose – because we stress all the time about the many decisions we are always faced with. It makes me feel peaceful just thinking about it. Thanks.
