“The end is always a thought away. Liberation—a simple choice. The way is easy and without effort. It rests in the power to decide.” (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Chapter 18, Page 228)
The “end” is Awakening, enlightenment, Christ-consciousness, transformation. Many long for this, but most don’t know that our power of decision rests in the God within. And if God is within, if we are a part of Him, then our power to decide is not simply a matter of just letting our God decide the timing.
We remove the blocks of fear and judgment, and then we make a simple decision that we long to experience the best of God today. THIS is the “power to decide.” Of course, this sounds difficult to our unknowing ears. But here Jesus says that the way is easy and without effort. When we rest on God’s bosom, things are easy and without effort.
The only problem is that we try to do it all with our finite self. And this won’t work at all.
Surrender to the God within. With this choice, we ready ourselves to a greater transformation than we can ever imagine.
