After enough lifetimes, your breadth of experience becomes so wide that you actually have a superabundance of information, and this information begins to act like a kind of poison; there are so many choices that you can’t even think straight. You get to the point where you can form a logical argument for anything. You can talk a topic up or down with equal skill. When this time comes, it becomes extremely valuable to develop the ability to discern what is important from what is unimportant in an endless field of possibilities and opportunity. In the end, you have to make a choice, and inherent in every choice is the commitment of your life force, your entire spirit.
If you avoid or refuse to make a decision, which is really a decision in itself, that is the one choice that is absolutely certain to generate disaster. What is important is the process of making the decisions in your life, and the commitment to those decisions. It doesn’t matter if the end result is success or failure. The point is that you commit to a decision, bring it to its conclusion, and experience its fruit; this forms the basis of wisdom.
