The physics of conscious choosing

Definition of choosing
Choosing is the expression of a decision. The expression may contain unclear and conflicting aspects in the form of beliefs and the whole is manifested. Many choices are automatic reactions.

Deliberate choosing
An efficient choice can be made by finding the balance between three areas of our experience: feeling, thinking, and doing.3 Trust arises as these areas support each other.

Evaluating the three areas leads to insight into choices. Resistance indicates the presence of contradictory beliefs. Acceptance of limiting beliefs reveals space for alternatives.

Freedom of choice
The extent to which we are aware of possibilities is a choice in itself. In theory there are no boundaries, in practice some options are more probable than others. This probability is influenced by all active beliefs in the moment.

Key points
• Choosing is deciding plus action
• Efficient choosing is a matter of genuine trust
• Successful deliberate choosing is a matter of awareness
• Every possibility is a potential choice
