Writing 101 ~ One-Word Inspiration and A Story In A Single Image (or Two)

Choice

CHOICE

What does it mean to have a choice?

Does a child have a choice in what family they are born into?

And do we have a choice in how we are taught?

Does a child have a choice in the body they are given?

in the country they’re born into?

Or the religion (or no religion) they are raised in?

A child comes into the world trusting.

Can that child be the person they were created to be?

Or will that child be limited in the choices available to them?

It’s a wonderful, expansive world  with so many choices both good and bad.

Are we letting those we love have the freedom to learn and grow?

Or are we binding them with narrow walls that attempt to keep them

within our own small world?

Choices ~ how to teach a child to think and follow their own path…

to believe in themselves.

How to help them make the best choices for themselves.

How to let go of them and let them take that leap!

************

Choice ~ Take that Leap

This post is a combination of two assignments for Writing 101.  We had a choice out of six words to pick one that spoke to us and that we wanted to write about.  The other assignment was to pick a single image that inspired us.  So I picked “Choice” as my one word and two images that I felt represented what I wrote.  Be well and be happy!

  1. “A child comes into the world trusting.

    Or are we binding them with narrow walls that attempt to keep them

    within our own small world?”

    These are my favorite lines. 🙂

  2. There were a couple: one was included this quote from the Bhagavad Gita, it read:

    Once you have understood the Self,
    seek the wisdom of yoga (union with
    the divine). In this way you will free
    yourself from karma (action).

    Your interest is appreciated, Eddie

  3. Well, Mary Lou. If one gets in touch with the learning we get from Life Between Lives research, by Michael Newton and those who have done thousand of deep hypnosis explorations, which are very extensive and something to really consider, then YES, “we” – this continuing soul, do consider what our mission and choices for the ‘next’ incarnation is all about.
    “Choice” is a great word. And, whether we (our souls) do in fact make a choice, what is perhaps more relevant is that we, here and now, do have a choice in how we hold each and every event, each ‘thing’ that occurs in our lives. YES, we do have a choice in how to hold this life (and perhaps how to set up the next).

    • This is another way of looking at the meaning of ‘choice’. Another possibility…. and we may be making choices in our lives, even as a child, that we’re not fully aware of.
