Nobody gets a programme and it seems that the concert of life has no Conductor.
In retrospect we can become aware of the compositions which have been played so far. This speaks for continuity, creating a Symphony with many movements. We can also consciously interrupt it at any point, to give a new turn to the subsequent composition. This speaks for the possibility of discontinuity in life’s happenings. We are free here and now to make a decision which is not based on what has happened so far… Therefore, a new beginning, a creation out of nothing.
For this we would need to be free of reaction to something.
Our actions are almost always reactions. Acting from our own motivation disturbs the current of events. Yet: the New is always born of a disturbance.
