It’s a complex choice, not a “yes” or “no” choice, it’s multi-faceted. We choose to let go of the defense mechanisms that our pain body has put up, we chose to put in the effort to actually do something to work towards happiness by changing our thinking patterns and our behavior. We choose to stop feeding the pain body. We can think of change all we want, but that’s only a thought, action is required for real change. Probably the most difficult choice in my life has been to let happiness in, and all along I didn’t even realize that it was a choice.
