The WAY of the Choice

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. (Victor Frankl)

Wiser words have hardly been spoken. Frankl got his insight in the most horrible conditions someone could experience. He developed his life philosophy during the torture and horror of holocaust. He realized that others may be in a position to take everything away from him, but the choice how to respond to a situation was his alone. Just imagine how far this philosophy can take you when you let this powerful choice carry you up the stairways to HEAVEN instead of trying to somehow make it through hell.

I have discovered that when it comes to life I am unfortunately not powerful enough to eliminate depression and misery. What I can do, however, I can use every opportunity life has to offer as an opportunity to find my SELF with the help of this choice. Not this, not that; "yes" to this, and a resounding "yes" to that! It is as if GOD HERSELF talks to us every step of the WAY. Once we sign up to this CHOICE, our journey HOME is already complete. We just haven't quite realized that we are already "THERE".
