One of the most amazing gifts that we enjoy as human beings is our free will or agency and our ability to make choices.
Yes, it is true that many times we find ourselves in situations where we feel “stuck” or think that we don’t have a choice – but the truth is, we always have a choice.
And of course, there are things in life that “just happen” and are out of our control, but that doesn’t change the fact that we still have a choice about how we look at or approach a situation, or how we decide to handle it.
Yes, there are those of us who do have less freedom, larger challenges, and real hardships compared to others.
But, within those difficulties still lies our inherent birthright to choose whatever circumstances of our lives that we possibly can.
Each morning when the sun rises, and we face a new day – with the birth of that new day comes with it opportunities and possibilities for how we decide to live our lives that day.
I think that many of us find that as we get older, over time we begin to feel as if we are somehow “set in our ways”, as if the trajectory of our lives has already been cast and we are committed to that path in life and so we can’t or won’t change.
But we can always decide to change, to make a new choice, and to follow a new path.
That choice might be to get rid of a habit that isn’t serving us, to leave a job that isn’t bringing you joy, or end a relationship in which your needs are not being met.
Or, that choice can be how you think, including your attitudes and beliefs about yourself – as well as the way that you think about or regard others.
We are all given choices in life, and in fact – we don’t have to wait until we die to reincarnate.
You can choose to reincarnate right now, today, or any time you want.
And here’s a quote from a very famous song by one of my favorite bands that comes with an important reminder: “Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run. There’s still time to change the road you’re on.”
You can reincarnate now, so what will you choose?
