Each human being is given the magnificent opportunity to choose what they create in life.
For better or worse, we are responsible for saying "yes" or "no" both to situations, people, and to the motives that we hold within ourselves that form the basis for our behavior.
This power of choice is our ultimate freedom. It involves us in becoming both more aware of, and more responsible for who we are. As this happens, the choices we make increasingly reflect an understanding of light and darkness and the way each brings us closer to, or separates us from our deeper selves and from God.
To know how to say "yes" and "no" - this is part of the great glory of being human. May all learn to manifest this glory which lives within. Amen.
