Ok you get the rambles a page early this week!

When I was young my Dad thought me about how we can make choices but we can't pick our consequences.

This is a easy example that you can do at home.

Take a stick, hold it out from your body palm facing down with your fingers wrapped around it.

Now you have two choices.

1. Hold on to the stick.

2. Let go of the stick.

If you hold on to the stick you the stick will say in the air. However if you let go of the stick then the stick will fall.

The choice is to let go of the stick, the consequences is the stick falling.

You see you have the ability to choose, but you don't have the ability to pick your consequences. You can't let go of the stick and choose to have it stay in the air, that is not in your power.

Now our consequences can have a impact on what happens to us and even choices we make latter on. If you did this with a brick over your foot, and you let go. The brick would fall and hit your foot braking it. Now your choice to let the brick go has lead to the consequences of it falling and it hitting your foot and now your foot is broken and you can't walk anymore. From this we see how one choice has lead to a string of consequences that now impact what choices you can make next.

I understand that this example is a little simple and that I'm sure some of you have already come up with ways to get out of it but none the less the principle remains the same.

We can make our choices, but we can't pick our consequences.

The people of The Kingdom were the Chosen of The Light. Because they chose evil, their hearts will not allow them to see The Light's truth.

Xura was conceived by evil, made to serve evil, and after she has seen the truth believes she deserves death.

Who is righteous, here?

And...did you maybe intentionally or no, slip a bit of Exodus into the story? );-9
