The Essence of the Spiritual Endeavor

It's important to remember that evolution isn't just happening. We are a very big part of that process, and when you really get this, the liberation of your power of choice becomes the very essence of the spiritual endeavor. You realize that the more awake you become, the more enlightened you become, the more responsible you are for our future, and the more profoundly significant become the choices that you make, because they become an expression of the evolutionary principle in action. Ask yourself, Whose hands are these? If you are primarily identified with ego, they are the hands of the ego. But if your purpose has become aligned with the creative principle itself, your hands become God's hands. As audacious as that sounds, it's actually true.
