'Choice' is commonly seen as being an expression of freedom.
In reality, choice indicates confusion.
e.g. a thirsty person is offered a choice of water or food. Which will they choose?
The answer is obvious.

Many apparent choices exist because we have contradictory, conflictive desires.

We want to eat cake but know we should be eating fruit instead.
There is conflict between health or self-indulgence, between immediate gratification or long-term benefits.
But this choice only exists if we are confused.
A clear mind sees the path ahead.
