There are occasions when I do not understand what to do, what to decide, which road to take.
These are not necessarily very serious situations. On the contrary in serious situations I take my heart’s call and hence never have dilemmas.
However when problems are very simple, I tend to get more confused. Sometimes I try one aspect and sometimes I try another one. But so far I never have been able to arrive at ultimate solutions to these dilemmas. Whichever way I go, it hardly makes any difference; - so, in fact, it should not be a problem; still it is.
For example, today I am struggling with what to order for dinner. I want something simple to eat – maybe just daal and rice - but as I am put in a luxury hotel such ‘simple food’ is not available here. To make a choice out of what is ‘not my choice at all’ is more difficult.
Well, when I am clear about what I want, everything seems to be easy. When I am confused, everything seems to be difficult.
Clarity comes out of choices and preferences.
Confusion comes when there are no choices and no preferences.
Whenever I have ‘no specific choice’ I seem to invite trouble – though temporary, it keeps on coming in different forms.
Is it not funny? I thought– having choices would make my life difficult.
It is rather the other way round.
