Rethinking the Choice

What would a knight be without a dragon to fight? He would merely be a “dude” dressed in a metal suit with nowhere to go! Frodo would have remained simply a hobbit living in the Shire if he had not been confronted with the formidable task of destroying the Dark Lord’s Ring. Alice would have been nothing more than a nice little girl if she hadn’t plunged down the rabbit hole. How can you know for sure that you have what it takes unless you are tested? Once we begin looking at things in this way, we start seeing our lives through the light of myth. The great journey of our life almost always begins with a test and a choice. Neo was offered a choice between the red pill and the blue pill. We too are offered the choice to journey forth or to stay safely within the confines of our four walls.
