Choices? Who’ s there to make choices? Part 1

Q: Sometimes I read that I have no Choices, because everything is predestined. At other moments I hear that I am self responsible for my own Life, including the choices that I make. This sounds like an anti-pole. So what  is wrong and what is right?

 

A: Actually both is right. Yes, you will make Choices in your life. Again and Again. At the same time, the bigger YOU, in were the choice-maker appears is not interested at all in making choices. It’s just there. Every second it is around, making no choices at all. There is a lot to be said about. And I am planning to do so. I will give you a long answer, because it is important to understand this.

 

A: Put yourself in to a moment of choices. You are in the supermarket looking for some vegetables. For a moment you hold your breath: what shall I take. There is so much variety. All of the sudden you decide to have the Broccoli: you made your choise. On a daily base you make quite a lot of them. All small decisions. For a short moment time seems to come to a standstill. You even hold your breath. Your hands stop acting. What can I do? What do I want? What do I need? Suddenly thoughts come up. Giving you idea’s on the subject that matters: what do we have for dinner tonight? It sounds trivial but it happens many times during the day. We act, move and flow, but all of a sudden we hold our breath: mind lets you wait like a train holding on a station till it can pick up its journey with new passengers.

 

Because that is what you do. You move, flow and suddenly hold yourself sometimes only for a second. That is the moment new thoughts arrive. You would love to take Fish and Chips for dinner, but you are on a diet or you don’t want to die with high cholesterol like  uncle Joe. Lets take the Broccoli: its fresh, green, healthy, but you don’t fancy the broccoli as much as you love the taste of crispy french fries, but…but.. Within a split second you build up some sort of basket full of thoughts, acting carefully out of Believe systems. In the end you pick up the Broccoli . How trivial it will seem to be, you were going to pick up the Broccoli anyhow. That was for sure. It’s the mind that gave you some idea’s to think over. The moment of Choise was a moment of hesitation. Somehow you find yourself struggling between a so-called healthy lifestyle or a life with joy for food and taste with possible consequences for a disease in result. This whole process of Identification only took place for a few seconds. All choices are hesitations. The flow never stops. You make a stop. Its you that pulls the emergency-brake. You don’t know why and you even call it freedom of Choice.

 

Basically its this moment of Choice that puts you into trouble. I know people who never make an issue of the choise of food. They simply pick what they like, and that’s it. They are not big eaters. They never grow a dime. They never are very thin either.They have a taste for everything. They can enjoy ‘the all you can eat ‘ in a steakhouse and the other day they pick just some salad, enjoying it with the same good taste. They simply eat, like something that has to be done on a daily base. It’s no big deal Never they make Choices on food. Its a simple need and food gets no single attention in Life. Yeah sure you would say: there is no one in the world that never made a small Choice on food. And that’s true, because not many people live Life in Direct Response!

 

What about deeper Choices you have to make? Divorcing or not. Career-moves? Having to move, having children or not?
