It gets easier … if you engage You always have free will I understand not everyone knows about snow skiing. But there is a bit of a dichotomy behind getting good at it. When you first put on the skis, you feel very clumsy. It is difficult to move around at all. And then add trying to go down even a small hill … the tendency is to lean back. Why would you lean forward when you feel like you have no control? Yet, that is when you gain control. The skiing becomes easier (eventually ;- ) once you learn to lean into it.

The “who” that would have answered this question, didn’t exist the day you were born. In other words, the “who” that would have answered this question is your ego. Yet, the day you were born, you didn’t have an ego (to speak of). Think of your ego when you were, perhaps, 10 years old. Who were you “then?” Fast forward a decade or so, and who were you then? Probably quite different answers. Yet, here “You” are. Fast forward, from this day, perhaps a…
