IT'S ALL YOUR OWN CHOICE . . . ?
Over the years I've met a lot of different ways of rejecting the realities of foreskin
Recently (1997) an idea I've heard often from modern healers and practioners of alternative medicine, is that my
experience with foreskin conditions is all a sort of spiritual problem which is ultimately
my own choice. I feel this idea may have a place in some forms of therapy when an individual wont
take responsibility for his life etc.... but consider the concept of
karma for a moment, surely some things are choices, some are consequences. - We dont just always choose, this is a ridiculous idea, we are not God, we may strive to be free but we are bound in this wheel of consequences.
In a practical sense to follow your idea to conclusions; children choose
lots of other problems: diphtheria, tonsillitis, being beaten by their
Dad, even lack of nourishment or an early death ... But, all these other problems
are checked for and/or prevented when possible.
I believe t his new "choice" idea is merely a new word for "free will"; Western
philosophers have been stumbling over the question of "free will
or fate" for centuries. I believe this question is predetermined
by our speech patterns. Our grammar perpetually confirms the impression
of either an I that does, or an I which is done to,.. . either subject
or object .... our understanding is moulded by these parameters, ... but
things would happen anyway, without any I choosing them to happen ....
It COULD be your own choice is maybe a better way
to think and be able to stimulate creative thought.
