Do You Have Choice Yet?

Presence begets presence. Condemnation and fear begets more conditioned thinking and antics to look better but what’s real? Presence… or, as Tolle is saying here, consciousness. Awakening…

“Choice implies consciousness – a high degree of consciousness. Without it, you have no choice. Choice begins the moment you disidentify from the mind and its conditioned patterns, the moment you become present….Nobody chooses dysfunction, conflict, pain. Nobody chooses insanity. They happen because there is not enough presence in you to dissolve the past, not enough light to dispel the darkness. You are not fully here. You have not quite woken up yet. In the meantime, the conditioned mind is running your life.” Eckhart Tolle

If we embrace this as truth, how will it revolutionize our parenting, our teaching, our counselling, our rehabilitation of ourselves and those life has entrusted us to love? And what awakens us?

Questions worth asking…
