Pro choice

An obvious choice, a "right" choice, can manifest into something you never planned for, never envisioned and never wanted. A "wrong" choice, a reckless choice, can turn into something that wakes you up and sets you free. Regardless whether we label them "right" or "wrong," our choices will eventually transcend belief and perception, and become the design of our lives.

Right, the measure of time is not the clock but the pace of our decisions; I'll take the liberty to say that yes, the What is part of it, but also the How we execute our choices is another part of what becomes the design of our lives. A sense of morality could be even seen as labeling rights or wrongs, but they influence in a good (and other times terrible) manner all that's known as behaviour, and I know you believe this although you hardly express it, because I've seen your sense of morality in how you act.
What you're expressing there is an application of the chaos theory to daily life, and a call to keep the eyes open, but we know, and life is a good teacher to show us, that there's more than this, and crucial too.

'The problem is choice.' A great great movie line, and that which probably makes the entire Matrix movie series.

But really, the 'problem' of choice is the problem.

In a nutshell, that choice problem is between accepting/embracing the nature of who you are - to thine own self be true - or living the persona of who you fake. And the great struggle is that that acceptance appears to be an enslavement to the mystery of life, but it is the only thing that has even a chance of setting you free.

There is a fabulous line from the I Ching:

"It is only when we have the courage to face things exactly as they are, without any sort of self deception or illusion, that the light will develop out of events by which the path to success may be recognized."

The problem is choice.

Be well,
