Let me start with the nice sayings from the famous Persian Sufi mystic,
Why are you knocking at every other door? Go, knock at the door of your own heart – Rumi
So what is Life? Usually people will answer it by saying it is from B to D, from Birth to Death. Yeah, of course it’s not wrong, but is it only that? We can make it more meaningful by questioning the thing between B and D. Well, what is between B and D? We all know it is a ‘C’. But what is actually a ‘C’ for us? It is a CHOICE. Yes, our life is a matter of choices, we should live well and it will never go wrong.
A simple example is Happiness. Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make us happy until we choose to be happy. No person will make us happy unless we decide to be happy. Our happiness will not come TO us, it can only come FROM us.
Undoubtedly, nothing is more compelling than the power of choice. Every time, we are being presented with a choice. We can choose good over evil, right over wrong, evolve over remain. And then if we choose to evolve, we will connect with the strength within us, we will explore what lies outside of our comfort zone. We will be awaken to love, we will become, we will be.
Thus as we are awaken to the power of choice, we are always given the opportunity to start anew. As simple as that.
