“We all struggle in a seemingly never-ending cycle of disappointment in which we attempt to control our lives. We search endlessly for the one grand choice that will put everything in our lives into permanent order, halting the motion of change long enough to establish final control over everyone and everything. Is that choice the right career? The right marriage partner? The right geographic location?
In seeking this one right choice constantly, we give form to our fear of the changing rhythm that is life itself. In looking for this single external person or thing that will forever bring us peace, stability, love, and health, we dismiss the more authentic power that lies “behind our eyes and not in front of them.” The truth contained within the paradoxical nature of dualism is this: It is not WHAT we choose that matters; our power to influence an outcome lies in our REASONS for making a certain choice.”
Caroline Myss, in “Anatomy of the Spirit”
