"Every man builds his world in his own image. He has the power to choose, but no power to escape the necessity of choice."~Ayn Rand

       The Self


 There is a revealing story of a monk in the Egyptian desert who was so tormented by temptation that he could bear it no longer.So he decided to abandon his cell and go somewhere else.

As he was putting on his sandals to carry out his resolve he saw another monk not far away from where he stood who was also putting  his sandals on.

"Who are you?" he asked the stranger.

I am your self," was the reply."If it is on my account that you are leaving this place, I would have you know that no matter where you go I shall go with you."
~Anthony de Mello

"Every person has free choice. Free to obey or disobey the Natural Laws. Your choice determines the consequences. Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices."
~Alfred A. Montapert

Since we are....wherever we go....there is no way we can escape from ourselves or our thoughts.
What if, instead of allowing our thoughts to run away with us......we choose to run our thoughts?
What if, we choose to be totally present in each moment.....choosing to live from the highest state of integrity and wholeness.....being true to ourselves ?
Life is all about choices......not  
making the right choice ....is also a choice.
