Adventures in Advaita Vedanta, the philosophy and science of spirit. We are one you and I; are you curious why?..


Here is a place to linger, to let your intellect roam. Aatmaavrajanam is being written as a progressive study and, as such, can be read like a book. Anyone arriving at any time can simply start at the very first post and work their way through at their own pace.

Choice Article 2

Hari Om
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.

We are having three Choose-days with links to external articles. The choice to read those articles is yours alone.

Today's article is on the academic side of choice v. freedom. There is quite the scientific interest in such things, as marketing and public policy need to know how best to 'direct' people... whether we actually want to be directed might be questioned. The fact that we are, all of us, being herded in one form or another is something else to ponder. Choices we make now are likely to inform what sorts of choices we will be presented with in the future. This might seem mundane - but at the philosophical level, we would do well to think on this. 

The last paragraph of the article is, perhaps, the most pertinent to what we have discussed here, but if you can bear it, the whole piece ought to be read; there are also some good reference links from it. If that's your thing!
