The Burden of Choice (Quote)

confused“We live in a different world today, with a different kind of anxiety confronting us.  Our great fear is not the threat of guilt and condemnation but the prospect of meaninglessness.  In short, our present problem is not the fear of failure but of never finding our way. The weight of the command has been replaced with the burden of choice.”

— Edward P. Hahnenberg (from Awakening Vocation, 2010)
