Spiritual Principle 18:   Decision, Part Two

How can DECISION and ATTENTION be used to increase soul contact?

Actually, more important than this is to decide to follow the highest that you know and receive from your inner self. Just deciding something like "I will receive soul contact today or next week" is not enough. If one is penniless and decides to have a new car tomorrow he will generally be disappointed. If one decides to have a new car and take the time and make the effort necessary to get it then there's a good chance he will receive it.

Similarly, the decision required of us that is most important is the decision to do that which is necessary to receive and maintain soul contact. Then when you receive contact you must then decide whether or not it is worth the effort necessary to keep the channel open enough to keep the contact continuous.

If the seeker is not sure of the path to take he can do one of two things:

  1. Do Nothing.
  2. Make a DECISION and go with it.

"But," asks the seeker, "what if my DECISION is wrong?" This worry often produces a paralysis. At this point it is best to keep one of my favorite quotes in mind:

"Indecision is worse than the wrong decision."

Could this statement really be true? Yes, as long as the decisions are made with a pure heart.

If you are sincere and make the wrong decision, then it will only be a short while before you discover your mistakes and start correcting them. Then as you progress and correct, it will only be a short while before you pass by those who did not act at all because of fear.

Look at the landscape of the work that needs done and make the best DECISION you can about the part that you will play and move forward with all your strength. If you have a degree of soul contact listen to the inner voice as you work. If you are working in the right direction you will sense a feeling of approval from your inner self.

We decide because of what we are and we BECOME because of what we are. And what is that?

There is a power within you that makes the actual decisions. The real you is this power which is the same power which has belonged to the One God from the eternities. Through this essence all lives are one, and that oneness becomes realized when we obtain full use of this power through the assumption of our real opportunity to make decisions.

Manifesting the fullness of this power also enhances soul contact.
