Choices and Decisions

These are not the same. They’re similar, but not the same.

We have choices.

We make decisions.

The better decisions we make, the more choices we will probably have.

And the more we study beauty and joy the more we’re finding they’re the offspring of variety.

Controlling the false self…

…is the first step to liberating the true self.

Who you were before you ever had a name will always be more freeing, peaceful, and enjoyable than any name you could make for your self.
