Each 'Choose-day' we will investigate the process by which we can reassess our activity and interaction with the world of plurality and become more congruent within our personality.
Here is fifth in the TED talks series on different views on the subject of choice. In this one, the subject is how we can chose and take action to alter our habits. In Vedanta, we understand these to be subject to our vaasanas… in clearing out useless or damaging habits, we can get to the baseline vaasana and 'burn it out'. This is taught throughout the shaastra, but no harm hearing the 21st century Western psycho-social version! Here, the speaker references mindfulness and awareness of one's actions - something with which readers here, by now, must be familiar. It is not such a leap of understanding to appreciate that in order to solve something, we must study the puzzle well; this applies to our own personalities and behaviours as much as to any abstract problem.
