Both my nephew and niece, play this children's game..
Would you rather have an ice cream or a popsicle?
Would you rather play baseball or basketball?
Would you rather live in Canada or in the Philippines?
Would you rather go to the beach or hike in the mountains?
Would you rather be a lawyer or a doctor?
Would you rather be stranded in the island or stranded inside the cave or swim in shark tank?
Would you rather so on and so on....
Did you get the drift?
This is always in binaries. This or that. Tit or Tat. The Devil or the deep blue sea.
Binaries are narrow specs we put ourselves in because we think that is the only way to be or to have.
For those that resist the binaries, there are more options and opportunities awaiting. There is joy in the discovery of knowing who you really are and what makes you tick.
For those the accept what is being offered and resign to whatever is given, it is just the devil or the deep blue sea.
