The story goes back aways. Most likely you've been born in a cage, taught that your 'choice' is the thing that makes you... you've been lied to. By a spirit named pride. Have no doubt that even what people commonly call the 'devil' has a purpose. In this case the purpose has been to teach us humility- so that we may find ourself.
I have an apple in my right hand and I have an orange in my left. Pick one. Why did you pick it? Was that a choice or was it something else? Do all 'choices' work this way? Is there reason any longer to harbour any fear or anger?
Patience be with you.
