    the decision to be

    Would anyone please rewrite the following sentence in bold? It's confusing. You don't have to explain the meaning of each word.

    Being is the ground of everything. It is pure awareness, the womb of creativity, the generator of evolution. When the final story is told, leadership is the most crucial choice one can make---the decision to be. Only someone who turns for wisdom to the silent domain of the soul can thrive in the midst of chaos. Such a person will be remembered as a great leader.

    Thank you.

    Re: the decision to be

    The text is purple prose to me and doesn't make that much sense, but it seems to be saying that the most important decision is deciding to take control of existence.
