Decision making is such a burden upon the mind.
Why do you want to decide?
Decision is a symptom of confusion. Only those who are confused, need to decide, others just know. When you are confused, only then there is a need to decide otherwise, you just know. And when you just know, who needs a decision, the decision is already made.
When you just know, do you need to make a decision? The decision is already made, it is obvious, who needs to decide, and who needs to think? It is obvious. When you are absolutely sure, do you still need to decide? When you are absolutely sure, there are no confusions because there are no choices.
Decision making means that there are these choices and I need to decide which one to choose, which one to go for. That is what decision making is. What if there are no choices at all? Would decision making still be relevant?
We all have eyes and yet we all are behaving as if we are blind. We keep asking for help, we keep asking for assistance in decision making.
I have given eyes to somebody who already had eyes. There can be no bigger magic than this. To give eyes to a blind person is understandable, but to give eyes to a healthy one, who already has eyes is pure magic. But that is the magic we all need.
I experience this, day-in and day-out with you people. First thing you ask is, ‘what to do?’ and if I tell you, ‘Alright, here is this answer. Now, this is the right thing to do’. Second thing you will ask, ‘whether I should do it? Yes. Alright, now tell me how to do it’.
The door is that way. Please. Just open your eyes and no decision is needed. Things are obvious, just obvious. Your eyes are closed because you have decided to keep them closed.
You want to make a decision because so many forces are dominating your mind. Each of these forces is a belief and is external, it is coming from outside. But you have allowed it to dominate your mind. You do not say that give me information, I will look at it with my own eyes, I just not take it in, I will just not start believing it.
Do not ask for decision making; ask for clarity in seeing. The one who sees clearly does not really need to decide, seeing is enough, seeing is sufficient. You do not really need to decide. See it clearly, watch in attention. Ask yourself, ‘Is this just a belief? When did I get it? From where did I borrow it?’ And then you will find that the fog is gone and things are obvious.
