All power on earth and heaven is given you. And here
with this assignment we are asked to realistically
look at where exactly this power lies.

Why does the lesson 152 say:"The power of decision is
my own" and not all power is given to you, to do with
as you please?

How do i apply my mind to the making of all the right
decisions? How willing am i to follow these
instructions?
How ready am i to take responsibility for the mastery
over the outcome and 'effects' of my decisions?

Last week we focused mostly on the intention of your
mind to learn how to make the decisions that give you
the outcome that you want.

This week we get in touch with mind as the mechanism
of the decision, what are the options between which we
choose? How real is the making of these decisions? And
how essential and inevitable is it to understand our
role in the 'process' of choice and how much is set in
stone?
How powerful is our choosing?

Lots of questions here already! I hope you recognize
the necessity to teach this, the same way that i do.
How complacent i get, when i don't give the experience
and the truth of this offering from our Jesus'
master-mind away. I recognize a strong need to stand
in the uncompromising way, truth and life of this
message.

I love you and let's do this.

With Love and Dedication Bastiaan


Power of Decision

Time to Teach
No one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision. No one suffers pain except his choice elects this state for him. No one can grieve nor fear nor think him sick unless these are the outcomes that he wants. And no one dies without his own consent. Nothing occurs but represents your wish, and nothing is omitted that you choose. Here is your world, complete in all details. Here is its whole reality for you. And it is only here salvation is.
