|This empowering Life Skill Lesson (or SMA, short for Self-Mastery Assignment) will enlighten you that you have the power to choose between mind or mastery. Choice implies consciousness - a high degree of consciousness. Without it, you have no choice. Choice begins the moment you dis-identify from your mind and its conditioned patterns, which is the moment you become Self-present. Until you reach that point, you are unconscious, spiritually speaking.
