A Relentless Search For Greater Understanding

I saw a movie trailer recently that had the tagline -- "Difficult decisions are the ones that don't get taken." That is to say that once you make a difficult decision, it's no longer difficult. The human spirit is so strong, that no matter what the situation, it will adapt. Partially, I blame the media for giving us fears and our material progress for giving us so many choices that we start generating doubts. In reality, the human spirit so strong that no matter what the circumstance, we adapt. Nothing is really all that difficult, if you break it down. As Victor Frankl points out, Jews shared their bread (and love) in concentration camps. So yeah, go make difficult decisions, embrace the unknown, live on the edge. :)
