The life(s) you choose

Life is about choices, shitty (as in hard) choices mostly. Choices are a chance (or a need) to change. Change is a desire to develop and to improve, a wish for a tomorrow better than today. It all breaks down to this one simple wish. This wish should define all good and bad changes, choices and lives.

The keyword is “define”: describe and identify. Think about something good. Think about something bad. Compare the two. There is mainly no difference in the (good or bad) objects concerned at any level, just your perception changes, just the “way” you feel about it.

The keyword is “feel”: You feel good. You feel bad. You know good because you’ve known bad (or you’re going to know it in the near future). You perceive the good compared to the bad. You recognize the bad related to the good.

The keyword is “perception”: perception is always biased. It’s never so-called objective or “pure”… You can’t stop feeling, can’t you? All you see, even so called objectively, is what you feel. The objectiveness or “purity” of an idea is only related to how much you can conceive change and new ideas or, more precisely, to how much good fresh ideas make you feel.
There is no static, structured, fixed, ordered higher truth. The higher truth only emanates from your feelings.

The keyword is “wish”: At some point of your life, you had/have/will have a choice to make. You conceive the possible alternatives of your choice; you weigh them according to one another; you choose the best option.
“This wish should define all good and bad.”
This wish is the will to learn new things, to adopt new ideas, to support new concepts, to be totally free, to be open to all suggestions, to be compassionate to differences.
This wish is the will to sustain change.
Sounds like an oxymoron? It’s not. Re-read please.
Don’t regard change as a rupture or a break; it never is. If it seems so, you just were not aware of the subtle differences earlier, you weren’t prepared for alternatives, you couldn’t perceive or conceive them.
All moves subtle and smooth.
Be aware of it, be tuned to it and choices will seem like never-ending soft waves of the tranquil ocean; ripples in the vast always stirring big structure.
