>thus fore-armed, it's for you to Choose... or not... to complete the climb
whoops... it's the ol' 'forget-to-say-what-needs-to-be-said' thing...
why =must= you Choose?
it's Why the 'Beast' is in-there in the first place.
without the possibility of Evil, there'd be no possibility of Goodness... and
no Free Will.
(for those who Believe, it's why, in the moment of His Fulfillment, the first
thing Jesus Did was Pray, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do."
Jesus understood Love's prerequisite. look and see... He Chose Truth on behalf
of all people, everywhere.)
don't be 'embarassed'... just Choose. don't hesitate, and don't be 'afraid'...
all you have to do, in matters small and great, is =always= Choose Truth.
the 'Beast' Hates ('moves away from') Truth.
Truth is the only Thing it cannot thwart... the only thing that =always=
Love Truth ('move toward' it) and Truth Loves you ('moves toward' you)
Happy climbing. ken
