Choosing Yourself is F*cking Liberating

Everything in life starts with a choice. Our earliest choices are subconscious and reflexive, but they are essential for our survival and well-being. We choose to turn our heads towards light, to reach for comfort or nourishment, and to cry out when we are uncomfortable. As we get older, our choices become more conscious and deliberate. We are shaped by our experiences, values, and beliefs, as well as the people around us. We choose what we want to eat, what we want to wear, who we want to play with, and how we want to live our lives.

Choice is a fundamental property of human consciousness. Consciousness is the ability to be aware of one's own existence and to make choices about one's future. Choice is the essence of humanity; we are human because we can choose, and our choices allow us to shape our own futures. Without choice, we would be nothing more than creatures of habit, responding to our environment in predetermined ways. Our choices matter. They define who we are and what we want to achieve in life. They form the framework of our reality.

When we choose ourselves, we are engaging in a powerful act of alchemy. We are transforming our lives from the inside out. We are creating a new reality for ourselves, one that is based on our values and desires.

Neuroplasticity and the Power of Choice

The principle of our choices shaping our brains is grounded in psychology, specifically in the field of neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change and adapt in response to experience. It is now well-established that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can all have a significant impact on the structure and function of our brains.

One of the key ways our choices shape our brains is through the release of dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure, motivation, and learning. When we make choices that are aligned with our values and desires, our brains release dopamine, which reinforces those choices and makes us more likely to repeat them in the future.

Another way our choices shape our brains is through the formation of new neural pathways. When we learn something new or experience something new, our brains form new neural pathways. These new neural pathways make it easier for us to repeat those experiences in the future. It suggests that we can change our brains and behavior by making conscious choices about how we live our lives.

Choice is Everywhere

One of the key principles of quantum physics is the interconnectedness of the universe. Quantum physics teaches us that everything is made up of energy and that all energy is interconnected. This means that our thoughts and emotions, which are also forms of energy, are interconnected with the energy field of the universe. Another key principle of quantum physics is the observer effect. The observer effect states that the act of observation affects the outcome of an experiment. This is because the observer is interacting with the energy field of the experiment, and this interaction can alter the outcome.

So, how does this relate to the belief that our thoughts and actions have a real impact on the world around us?

Well, if we think of ourselves as observers of the universe, then our thoughts and emotions are essentially observations. And if our observations can affect the outcome of experiments, then it stands to reason that our thoughts and emotions can also affect the outcome of our own lives and the lives of others.

The universe is a mirror of our minds. What we think and feel, we create. Our thoughts and actions have a real impact on the world around us and on ourselves. Our choices are powerful.

Choosing is Liberation

When we choose ourselves, we are creating a new reality for ourselves. We are no longer living according to the expectations of others. We are living our lives on our own terms. We are fully Sovereign. Consciously choosing is an active breathing movable framework. Choice is what shapes our reality.

Freedom is not about having the most options possible, but about making choices. This is a subtle but important distinction. While having lots of options may seem like a good thing, it can actually be paralyzing. When we have too many choices, we can get overwhelmed and start to doubt ourselves. This can lead to analysis paralysis, where we get stuck in the "in-between" and never make a decision at all. 

Staying in the in-between is not liberation. It is a form of self-imposed imprisonment. When we don't make choices, we are giving up our power and control over our lives. We are allowing other people and circumstances to dictate our destiny. Choice is the framework that allows us to live our lives according to our own values and desires, regardless of what others think or expect of us.

When we make a choice, we are not just choosing between different options. We are also choosing who we want to be and how we want to live our lives. We are choosing our own destiny.
