I have a decision to make. Is that true?
We’ve all had those times in our lives when we’ve been faced with a choice. And in that place, some of us feel the clench of “I don’t know what to do!” Pros/cons lists, research, consequences, ups and downs and so on get employed to assist us.
I’m in that place now. A choice/cross roads is before me. And when I believe I’m in control stress quickly settles in.
As Todd Smith so eloquently describes in this article, The Work is about coming to peace with “What Is”. To do that requires the inquirer to drop their agenda which is pretty counter intuitive to making a decision. Making a decision, Todd says, is about action. The Work as meditation invites us to something different. Acceptance. An opening of the hands. Surrender. And in that place, action does us.
