The ability to choose is predicated on the existence of time. Without time, there is no need, and no ability, to choose anything. I choose, therefore, to be grateful for time, temporary gift that it is.

Being human also allows me to choose differently. Were I a garden slug, my choices would be limited indeed.

These two gifts then — being human and living in time — are unique opportunities to change my karma. What I choose to do with the 24 hours I’ve woken up to each day is the universe’s gift to me. My gift back to the cosmos is what I choose to create within the limits of that 24 hour packet of time and humanity. May I choose wisely, in the moment.
