No, Yammering Mind

No, Yammering Mind,
you can't drive.
You are bat-shit crazy.
You'll just put us into a ditch
and cry about it afterward.
Let awareness drive.

Quick update

I'm working hard on my second Zen book.  I'm on the 3rd draft right now. Peace.

Cradle to Grave

Cradle to grave,
Cradle to grave,
Everyone hurries from
Cradle to grave.

Cut them some slack,
That's how they behave,
As everyone hurries
From cradle to grave.

You don't "choose" anything

Because of the plasticity of the mind, and because of the influence all previous circumstances have in putting that malleable mind in a particular state at any point in time, the universe "decides" what humans "choose."  And even the universe is just doing that at random, like a gabazillion billiard balls clattering around on a massive billiard table, on a ship being tossed by a raging sea.

The most you can do is observe brain activity without clinging to results. Because the brain is going to do whatever it is going to do. Your upbringing, level of discipline and maturity, culture, personal history and biologic tendencies are completely random, and out of your "control."

You don't "choose" anything.
