I have been thinking a lot about choices lately. I always like to define a word to get a clear meaning. Choice: the right, power, or opportunity to choose.
This definition is pretty straight forward. But why is it sometimes such a difficult proposition? To choose? Especially between two good things that we want. So much goes into a choice. Our background experiences, nuances, feeling, outward physical sense, desire, disgust. Everyone is faced with thousands of choices everyday. Mundane choices – complex choices.
Why is choice so important?
Let us imagine a world without choice. What would it look like? Who would be there? Why would they be there? Would you ever choose to be there? Then if you choose to be there, there’s a choice which would not exist… Wow, guess that’s kind of deep.
Let’s come back to the surface. Choice is about you and choice is personal and choice effects others deeply. If I make a wrong choice, it can have lasting ripples into many futures. The same goes for making a right choice. I’m sure nearly everyone has taken a flat stone and attempted to skip it on a lake. One time I got hundreds of skips – it was a very flat, smooth stone. Just like the ripples of those splashes go on sometimes imperceptively, they still move forward into the future with a momentum that we may not even recognize.
Even small choices ripple. The splash may not be that noticeable but it still effects more than just the stone. A big splash can generate large waves that come in contact with sides or shores and erodes and builds by depositing the sands.
Choice is the reason we are here on earth – to learn to make the correct choice and to learn from wrong choice. The whole reason of existence is to choose.
So choose carefully your color of wowflute – each color is more or less important to you. Each color for me is based on my photography and my love of color in general. I hope you find the right one to enjoy.
