What is TRUE Freedom?
This week in USA and Canada we celebrate the concept of freedom with July the 4th and Canada Day respectively.
This is a time when besides the fireworks, hot dogs and BBQ's we have the opportunity to do some serious reflection of what true "freedom" means to us as individuals and as a collective human civilization.
Let's look at this from the macro to the micro perspective;
Firstly, we can look at a myriad of examples around the globe about how the concept of freedom or independence is manifesting itself. Take what has just taken place with the "Brexit". This situation is showing that on a mass collective there is an underlying pull towards being "free". This result and even the idea of "Brexit" would never have even come up without somewhere as a culture there was a feeling of a deficit of freedom or independence. To see how this same yearning in the USA is happening, all you have to do is look at the rise in calls for separation and exclusion in current politics.
On the global stage we can see evidence of this same yearning for freedom & independence by the rise of terrorist activity that is happening. The terrorists are seeking independence and freedom from what they believe to be the oppression and evil of current western ideologies which conflict with their religious morals. Of course their horrific methodologies of getting what they want can never be condoned, we need to seriously look at the core of WHY they are doing these things and get beyond the "evil" label. The fact is that they are seeking freedom too.
This brings us to US. What's happening on the outer world is the result of what is happening on the inner world. A Course in Miracles teaches us that WE are cause and the world is effect. Meaning that what we believe, think & feel will eventually find its way to manifesting in the world. The great spiritual traditions teach this all the time. Even the bible says: "As above, so below"
Individually there is great conflict within many of us at this time in history.
People are feeling cut off. People are feeling excluded. People are feeling isolated.
People are feeling angry. People are feeling hopeless and helpless...
Once again, A Course in Miracles teaches us that beyond our separations of bodies and geography that there is only one "sonship". That sonship is you, me, those we love, those we hate, those we respect, those we condemn, the terrorists, the refugees, and the list could go on and on...
The lesson here is, whether our egos like it or not, our "enemies" ARE us. Therefore, the more we seek "Freedom" from them the more we seek separation from ourselves.
THIS separation is why there is so much strife, pain and suffering apparent within and without. As a species we are at an amazingly powerful choice point in history and I know that you feel it because everyone does. We can either continue down the road of separation with the thinly veiled label of "freedom" or we can do what has been evidenced by among other things, the recent tragedy in Orlando where we witnessed a massive reaction of true unity, compassion and unification.
The answer to this call for freedom is the healing power of love and unity.
You see the ego wants everything to be very complicated, but Spirit is extremely simple. If we get beyond all the noise of the world and even noisier ego in our minds, all we have to do is ask ourselves honestly:
How much true love, compassion and support am I giving myself on a consistent basis?
How much judgement, condemnation and punishment on any level am I railing against me?
There is no healing without honesty, so I encourage you to answer these questions with facts and not how you "wish" you could be to yourself. Honestly, approaching these questions are the beginnings of TRUE freedom and healing the "sonship". Once we all dedicate ourselves to healing our separation, we will see more and more evidence of that in the world.
Let TRUE freedom ring this holiday for ALL and not just a few...
