Genuine freedom is beyond all words/concepts/thoughts/beliefs about freedom… it simply IS. New MJ Awakening Blog

freedom

“Freedom is greatly more than the mere freedom from pain, sickness, anxiety, lack and the like. Genuine freedom is freedom to be. It is freedom to be one’s own God-created Self. It is not a reaction against something. It is not even freedom from troubling conditions such as those I have just mentioned.

Genuine freedom is infinitely more than a human reaction against discordant situations. Genuine freedom is not a reaction against some thing. It is even more than freedom from hatred, jealousy, or war. Freedom is. Freedom is being one’s spiritual Identity. It is being one’s Self.

Freedom is not being free to replace one’s human condition for another seemingly better human condition. For instance, it is much more than merely replacing sickness with health, violence with nonviolence, or fear with confidence. We are not even free to engage in the fruitless activity of comparing our freedom or lack of freedom with another’s freedom or lack of it.

In short, freedom is not a replacement of one view of life with another view of life, for to be spiritually free is to be free from comparison.”

-W. Norman Cooper (from, THE NON-THINKING SELF)
