Spirit tells me that free will and destiny work together
To create a lifestyle. We each can, and must, choose
From available options, but only from those
Available options that we are aware of
At the time of our choosing.
Of course, a possibly different selection
Of options, may be available
To each one of us.
Spirit also cautions me that
The selection of options available
To each of us, now,
May be less or more
Than were available to us
At some earlier time, in our past, and,
The choices we make with
Our free will may expand, or reduce
The collection of options available to us
To choose from, in the future.
One choice alone is not available,
Claims Spirit, The option
Not to choose.
