If we use the analogy that life is like one big cosmic movie, then you have a choice to make.
You can choose to believe that there is a director up in the sky, pulling all of the strings, and that you are merely an actor reading his or her lines, with no ability to influence the plot.
That’s possible, I guess.
Or, you and I could both not only be actors, but also directors in this play, each with the ability to change the direction of our part the script, and to influence or collaborate with each other along the way.
The choice is yours to make.
