ecently watched a movie called “Choice Point.” It says that when
we’re at the end of a cycle in our lives, we come to a choice point.
At a choice point, you have the opportunity to do three
things: understand your world, align your purpose, and be the
change you want to see in the world.
Now, we may not always know when we have reached the end of one cycle in
our lives, so life takes care of that and stops your old cycle in the form of a
crisis, something to stop you from continuing in the direction you were going
and set you off in a new direction, if you choose to do so. From
Kandy’s book about Pie, it looks like horses (and other animals) are given
choice points too. Pie suffered an accident which stopped him from
continuing his old life and propelled him into a new one. His new
life allowed him to see a broader view of the world and become something
different. Apparently, life gives animals and humans alike chances
to understand, grow wise, and make a difference, even when your choice point
arrives when you are considered quite old and almost done with life.
Nature gives you the chances to show courage, love, compassion,
friendship, honor; all those qualities that make life worth something and shine
light upon the world.
