When we become more compliant, we become more predictable.
When we become more predictable, our lives become more predetermined.
When we become more predetermined, we don’t act very mindful.
And when we stop being mindful, our agency diminishes.
Making choices has always been a burden in its own right.
When we choose, we are responsible. It’s that simple.
Yet, when we trade in uncertainty for safety, reliability and predictable outcomes, there’s no need to make decisions anymore.
Someone will make them for us.
Therefore, the more predictable our lives become, the less alive we feel.
We only feel alive when we get to decide.
