OUR CHOICES IN OUR LIVES
In our life we’ve several choices
Some are easier to be chosen
While others are steeped in quagmire of difficulty
The choice remains with us solely
The choice depends on the our wisdom entirely
We’ve garnered for ourselves
Over a period of time indeed
Sometimes we’ve the choice of silence
Other times we’ve to walk the talk
Sometimes there is no choice of pick and choose,
Selection of our choice
Also depends on situation
In which we’re placed willy-nilly
In emergency like situations
We’ve limited options
Or when alternatives have dried out immeasurably
We are constrained to follow the available ones
With compelling reasons open
And with us available .
Thence sometimes we get distraction
Due to our wavering mind
Which hovers from one thought to other one
Here choices become blurred and confusing
Here choice proper and most appropriate
Becomes all the more difficult.
Then there are workaholics
Their very little choice is not anything but work
They’re sticklers for rules
To be perfectionist at all costs
In order to earning for themselves
In the long run stresses and strains.
Then we’ve situations
Where we’ve no choices at all left
Everything we take gets boomeranged
With the situation like this
There is no alternative
But to bank on our Creator
And we sincerely pray to Him
For granting us sagacity
With immense inner strength
To face the challenges
In which we’re placed
This inner strength
Strengthens our resolve
And give us multiple choices
Amongst these we can choose the best ones
For making the life peaceful
With humbleness in abundance blissfully
With broadening of choices ultimately
Making us the master of our destiny.
OUR CHOICES IN OUR LIVES
There are so many choices in our lives which we can individually choose. In life we have various alternatives or options but what we choose for ourselves counts, taking into consideration the time and space we are placed. The following are the parameters which are important for us in order to choose the right course of action depending on the situation in which we are placed and the inner resolve we have garnered for ourselves:-
WHEN WE HAVE MULTIPLE CHOICES
When we have different choices from which we have to choose one, the choice depends on us individually. For example, the students can choose their choice of course or skill they can choose from amongst the multiple ones depending upon our own aspirations and ambition we’ve nurtured over a period of time, availability of finance and other relevant factors. But ultimately, the choice solely is of the individual student concerned.
SINCERITY IN FRUTIFICATION OF THE CHOICE WE ADOPT FOR OURSELVES
It should always be kept in mind that merely making choice is not a solution, we have to work for realizing or fructification of the choice chosen. Here sincerity for successful completion of our choice too counts a lot.
CHOICE OF OUR LIFE PARTNER
We have the choice of choosing our spouse with whom we want to spend our life, with whom we want to share the happiness and sadness besides fulfilling all the demands that family commitment demands from us. A good choice in this context goes a long way in living a purposeful life.
CHOICE OF FRIENDSHIP
We all are aware that we cannot make friendship with everybody; those who come across us in life. We have to be doubly sure that the one we choose as a friend, stands with us in thick and thin and we also do the same for our friend.
WHEN WE’VE LIMITED CHOICES
There are occasions, when our choices are limited. We have to live with those limited choices with us. In this sort of contingency, we have to be careful in choosing from the limited choices. This choice should be exploited to the hilt for getting optimum benefit. For example, if we’ve only one business opening for us, we’ve to lap it up.
WHEN THERE NO CHOICES AT ALL THEN?
There are times and occasions when we do not have any choice left; in that case there are two scenarios. Firstly, we may lose ourselves in the bargain or get frustrated and earn for ourselves stress related diseases. Secondly, the person concerned could turn to God and pray for inner strength and resilience. True prayers are always answered by our Creator.
WHEN OUR CHOICE IS SUSPECT
At times, our choice is suspect then what? Then our inner potential bestowed by our God comes to our rescue and we are delivered of the piquant situation in which we are places.
SHOULD ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF THE MAXIM: HASTE MAKES WASTE
At times, we are under the dilemma of choosing from the multiple choices, here we’ve to be careful in choosing the right choice amongst all the choices. But here we’ve to introspect; analyze all angles and then reach to a conclusive decision. Here the maxim, haste makes waste’ should never be lost sight of even for a moment. While choosing our profession, our life partner or coming under the spell of lust for ‘another’ woman etc are some of the choices. Here we’ve to be very careful, especially for ‘another’ woman or man wherein we shall be transgressing our moral lakshamrekha (limits). Here if we sway, we shall be losing ourselves in the bargain. This choice too is ours own, nobody other than us can choose this.
