Ripples #777: Infinity of Choices.
For our tribe of busy people who
believe in the power of uRock:
unleashing Ripples of compassion & kindness
14 Apr 2014

You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers.
In every moment of our existence,
we are in that field of all possibilities
where we have access to an infinity of choices.
—Deepak Chopra, shared by Pete in Sedona, AZ

The golden opportunity
you are seeking
is in yourself.
It is not in your environment;
it is not in luck or chance,
or the help of others;
it is in yourself alone.
-Orison Sweet Marden

It is sometimes so tempting to focus on options taken away from us: we don't get a job that seemed like a perfect fit, the other person ends a relationship we thought was worth pursuing, or even something simple like a beloved dish being removed from the menu of a favorite restaurant (are you listening, Cactus Pear?). When someone else removes an option, we have a tendency to concentrate on that which we can no longer choose, often ignoring a bounty of other possibilities that still exist.

Of course it is appropriate to spend some time grieving a lost opportunity, but remember that infinity minus one is still infinity. The sooner we finish saying goodbye to that which is no longer an option, the sooner we can turn around and say hello to the options that are still excitedly whispering, "Ooh, pick me! Pick me!”

What choices are available to you today?
