Is it me or does the line between right and wrong blur the older that you get? We live in what seems to be a duality – there is two sides to everything. As a child we are taught black and white, right and wrong yet as we age, we become aware that choices are not so stark… in fact, choices are complex things.
I do believe rightly or wrongly that many sell their ‘souls’ in the pursuit of ‘happiness’ in that they simply stop trying to judge and give in to the demands around them. Others however, continue to seek an answer and carefully analyze each and every choice. They end up sitting on some sort of fence never actually experiencing the true value of life.
I’m not sure I know the answer nor am even qualified to discuss the issue. On the other hand, there are moments when I truly think that thinking is part of the problem. Could it be that in fact, we live in a unity and choices are actually irrelevant? Choices are a sort of distraction to keep us occupied and to have us sacrifice our true selves to the Gods of duality?
What I think I mean is that if we just could be, never choosing nor deciding what is wrong or right might we actually find peace? Could it be that the idea of choice is simply an illusion? In biblical terms is choice Satan? Or rather is the act of choosing an act of un Godlike choosing?
It seems to me at times that everything has its purpose and everything is how it should be so why is choice required?
Think about the Bible and how God made certain people chose? Was the right answer to refuse to engage in the duality of choice and simply state – We are One. There is no choice, no free will. There is only divine will?If we give up on choice, do we find nirvana?
