This question is marked "community wiki".

Every second of every day- indeed, every millisecond of every day- I am choosing my reality. I am choosing whether to be happy or disgruntled; I am choosing whether to be a Navy Seal or major in Biochemical Engineering (both which are such hard work that I might, at times, feel quite unhappy, but will bring me my happiness anyway...); I am choosing what objects to observe in my environment, and then choosing my reactions to the objects that I see. As an example, I now look up from my keyboard and see my bedroom, and I could choose to observe everything in it- but I usually do not. This time, I see my cat, Beau-Beau, in the window. Am I going to call him to me? Am I going to try and see what he sees out the window? Or am I going to squint my eyes and try to see the dark brown tabby stripes that are magically hidden in his seemingly solid black coat? Our brains are making choices non-stop, and we can bring any choice we make up to the surface, and alter the choice or whatever we want to do with that choice.

I have millions of choices at every moment, and I am right now glad that my process of choosing is usually unconscious, for it is overwhelming to consider the choices that are presented to me by my eyes when I look up from this keyboard. But hidden in my choices at every millisecond is intent for the future. Those choices exist out there, waiting for me to optimize my existence. And every moment you live from now on will be a decision, a choice, as to what reality you care to experience.

Your whole future is waiting for you to choose it. Watch this, (which is, What the Bleep Do We Know?), to learn about all of this.

Love to you all,

Jaianniah ♥

@jaz- Never saw this in my life until now.

it all boils down to that famous phrase ... "to be or not to be" ... "is it better to live or to die?"

"is it better to live or to die?" ... this is a trick question ... the flip side to death is birth
