I wonder, is it possible to fight for Freedom?
Can we be at war and in a place of Love at the same time?
Can we have freedom without love?
To me, Freedom IS Love. There is no FEELING of Freedom without Love. Love IS Freedom. Love is Freedom from hate and fear and anything else that feels limiting.
Our Freedom never depends on what others are doing. What we experience in the world is a reflection of our own thinking. I cling to this truth because it IS my Freedom. The minute that I allow myself to believe that my Freedom depends on anything in this world, I’m trapped by my own limiting thoughts.
Liberation is an inside job. If I’d like to be free from terrorism in the world then I must, as my BFF Rev. Karen Russo once said, “love the terrorist within me.”
Through our active practice of Love and non-judgment, we feel more Freedom because we no longer choose to torment ourselves with unkind thoughts. Through our spiritual practice of being loving we shine the light of Love within our own awareness and this is what dispels the sense of darkness.
We’ve got what it takes to liberate.
Where once there was a daily battle, an ongoing war, now there can be Peace. It’s real. It’s not temporary.
Each day, I behave more like a free person and less like a prisoner. Rather than holding onto anger and resentment I let it move through me and this is a realization of Freedom. It’s liberation.
What I’m feeling in myself is the microcosm of what is happening in the world. despite all appearances, I know this is true. Peace is the way.
Still, I cannot be satisfied with Freedom of speech. I aspire to live forever in the Freedom to Love without resentment, to live without blame or guilt or shame. No military action can give me that. I must, as Dr. King said, shine the light of Love that is already within me. I must know that I am already free.
Civil rights activist Diane Nash said, “Freedom, by definition, is people realizing that they are their own leaders.” Today, I take a leadership role in my own life. I free my mind and discover at least one way I can express myself more fully and more freely. In this way I embody my practice of nonviolence and non-judgment. My commitment to Peace sets the whole world free.
I am grateful for my willingness.
