Decisions

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

There is a saying that goes

“If you have a difficult choice to make, flip a coin. If you decide to make it two out of three, you want the other one.”

It is one of my favorite quotes, not because I have lots of hard decisions to make, but because it implied that the answer was always somehow lying in us.

Sometimes what is right and what is best for us don’t seem to align, but I believe that most of the time, we already know what we are looking for.¬†Our fears and delusions might create doubt and confusion, but if we can get through those, be it from a deep breath, or a longer meditation, we can see the difficulty under a new light, and in a much simpler way.

Next time you have a difficult choice to make, try to get away from the deep and hard reasoning, and try to find that clear peace of mind. You might not even need it, since you already have the answer!
