America is Mad over choice. We can’t have enough choices. You got a problem? Not enough choices. You feel trapped? You need more choices. No matter what the prison cell, you can choose your way out by creating more choices. This is the Hurt Locker.
We all live in a pair- a -docks…where we think we have a choice of which dock to tether our reality. We fail to see that we are creating the pair_a- docks for by choice we create ourselves and then forget we did it. Without the pair- of- docks we have no choice, and without choice the Ego does not exist. So we create choices so we can create the feeling that we exists by our choices. Not realizing that we create the choices, we are continually in a paradox that must spawn new choices as a way out of the paradox.
The Pair-a-docks is whether I should choose introspection or outspection as a way out of the paradox of double-bind of choice. What is the real, I wonder, my mind or the world, and where is the way out of the unreal that I feel I am imprisoned. Outward of inward, which way is the Way. The East says inward, the West says outward….But this is just the outside of the cup versus the inside of the cup. Choose one and deny the other and you can’t drink your tea.
When I just grab the cup, I hold the inside and the outside as one. I drink the tea of life when I don’t divide it by choice.
