As soon as an individual becomes an adult, irrespective of his or her origin, gender, or personal qualities, he/she inherits one really huge and heavy reality which will never go away – the requirement to take responsibility. The more you grow, the more achievements you realize, and simply the further you move on from a happy child’s world, where everything comes to you almost immediately and effortlessly, the greater will be the responsibilities that you will be required to take on.
Let’s play a little word association game here. I’m giving you a ‘choice’. How will you reply? This article is for those who think about ‘stress’, ‘impossibility’, ‘challenge’ or ‘trouble’. Why does the decision-making process seem to be so difficult for us? Why do we have a dilemma in our minds every time it comes to making a choice between two or more equally attractive or unattractive options?

Where are you now? How are you living, right at the moment? What is this moment about? Are you really living it here and now? Too many questions to begin with: the present moment.

And the more you think about it, the bigger this something becomes. This is because that part is your entire life. The life that has been lost in the race. The life that will never be repeated, from the starting point.
