fundamental choice from Robert Fritz's latest newsletter: A real choice means we can do it (whatever the it is) or not. If you must do it, you have no choice. Some people use the word "choice," but they don't really mean you can do it or not. Sometimes they think that a choice is forced upon you, and if you don't do whatever the it is, you will pay a price until you wise up, and finally make "the right choice." The thought here is "yes, you have a choice to get it wrong, pay the consequences, and finally come to your senses and do the right thing." But this is not in the spirit of a true choice. It is just a life-manipulation which presumes there is a "right" path and you must take it; this notion of choice is held by those who have some dogmatic belief system that they feel is the only truth. They think anyone with a different view will eventually be forced to adopt their worldview. But in life we do have many choices we can make. Some of these choices can make all the difference. If you haven't made the fundamental choice to be a non-smoker, any method you choose will eventually fail. If you have made the fundamental choice to be a non-smoker, just about any method you choose will work, and you will be attracted to those methods that work especially well for you. Fundamental choices are about orientation, states of being, the ground you stand on. There are four major fundamental choices we recommend to people. They are: The choice to be healthy The choice to be free The choice to be true to yourself The choice to be the predominant creative force in your own life ....... Like all fundamental choices,...
