On my decision all salvation rests.
It is explicitly stated in the introduction to A Course In Miracles that we don’t get to choose the curriculum. We do get to choose when we want to take it. So, lesson #238 states, “On my decision all salvation rests.” What do we choose: the world of the ego or the world of the Spirit? We have the power to choose whenever we wish. For some it takes a long time. For others, the decision is made early in their lives.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, it is suggested in step three that we make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understand God. In other words, it is suggested we give up our willfulness and turn to willingness to engage with God’s Love.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together and to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This search entails decisions of where to search, when, how, and what to do with what we find. Again the curriculum is not ours to design for we are not in charge, but whether we learn and what we learn from the curriculum is up to us. Do we choose the things of the ego or the things of the Spirit? Upon this decision salvation rests.
Today, it is suggested that we begin and end the day, and many times in between, being mindful of our decisions. Would we choose the path of the ego or the path of the Spirit? Upon this decision our salvation rests.
