How will you feel when you are faced with an absolute situation, where no matter what choices or decision you make, there is no way you can resolve or alter the outcome?
I’m always a firm believer that no matter what the situation is, i have have the faculty of choice. to a state where, it is still a decision i make, when i don’t make a decision. So no matter what, i will always retain a decision making factor. And this sits very comfortably with me, until recently.
If there is nothing i can do about it, what else can i do? The entire phrase is rather ‘self-slapping’ because it is redundant to think about what you can do, when the first premise is already absolute, there is NOTHING i can do. Of course, we always mitigate that with a four letter word ‘Hope’. We have to hope, and in face of absolute despair, we still must try and endeavour, and sometimes, we might miss that very slight and hairline trace of solution that will turn the situation around. So we hope, and never stop hoping.
Of course, i, too am caught up in this ‘hoping’ business. because to think that I will always retain a decision making faculty is a matter of hope. And as long as i harbour this hope, unconditionally, i will never be able to face a truly hopeless, and utterly defeated situation maturely and with equanimity
