Do We Have a Choice About Whether to Become Enlightened?

Q: Dear Todd, do we have a choice whether or not to become enlightened?

TODD ANSWERS: Ultimately, it is a choice. Whether people are willing to put in the work to discover how to make that choice, that is the question.

It is our choice what we focus on and what we do with our time.
It is our choice to let go or cling on.
It is our choice to value the present moment reality over fantasy.

But most people will not put in the effort to discover how to control their mind and make these choices. For most of those people, this is through no fault of their own. Many of us are born into roles of inescapable responsibilities that take up most of our time. But if are honest with ourselves, if we are doing this for the right reasons (hint, it must be for the benefit of all beings), and if we make it a priority, this is a way of being available to each and everyone of us.
