From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.

in the pursuit of a life dream.

Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?

will begin to establish themselves around and within him;
or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor
in a more liberal sense,
and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.
- Henry David Thoreau

the oldest problem in the relations between human beings,
