So if it’s true that we can’t make autonomous choices, how can I improve my life? Well, perhaps “you” can’t do anything about it, except watch as life takes you on a journey.
But if you seem to be seeking improvement, there’s a very good chance you’re already on that path. In other words, you’ll likely end up wherever you’re facing.
So don’t be concerned whether you’ll reach a particular destination, life has gotten you this far hasn’t it? You haven’t been in control this entire time, just look around and realize that an individual does not have the capacity to create the world he inhabits, the world creates him.
