Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/29/14

Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.”   —   Stephen Covey

(I think it’s very ironic how “religious” people love to espouse the concept of “free will”.  Very little of what we do in our lives is really a matter of free will.  We are all cultivated from birth – some of us even earlier – to think, and behave, in certain acceptable ways.  There are both pros and cons to this kind of cultivation.  Ostensibly, the pros outweigh the cons, but that is really here nor there.  Most of us will carry on, and pass on, the various values we have been taught, as a matter of heritage and tradition.  It’s reassuring and comforting to us.  It’s one less thing to worry about in a world full of trepidation and uncertainty.  But, the world is also full of encouragement and beauty.  The more we can concentrate on these positives the more we can break free of the constraints of our conditioning.  Therein lies the path to true free will.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It seems all we can do is the best we can with the hand we have been dealt but have not chosen.

    As long as people can step back for a minute, and say to themselves: Hmm. Maybe there IS another way! — YUR
