“The word “choice” is a fraud while people choose only what they have been taught to choose.”
– Idries Shah
I have been giving this a lot of thought in the past weeks. I love the idea of free will, it really makes me feel alive… but how much of it is actual. I think we are all shaped on one way or another by the way we are brought up and our environment. So are our choices really choices or just predestined responses by what we have been taught.
What do you think?
