We are unaware that we are living in a prison of our own making. We are imprisoned by our thoughts and beliefs. We have been conditioned since birth to think and believe a certain way. The brainwashing continues every day that we watch television, speak with friends or family or surf the internet.
Even when we realize that freedom is just a moment away, we prefer the safety and comfort that we have when we share the beliefs of our various tribes. We would rather remain in our cell and continue to wallow in our fears and frustrations than live to our full potential without anxiety.
Once we experience freedom, which is our natural state, it is hard to continue believing the lies that we have been taught. Our dissatisfaction will grow until we realize that there is nothing to fear from freedom. When we surrender our thoughts, beliefs and judgments and turn our awareness to the present, we are comforted by Divine energy. Our lives will become harmonious and we will begin to fulfill our true purpose. The things that seemed so important to us no longer concern us. Our obsessions and neuroses fade away. We are energized by our connection with all things. We feel awake and alive. We get more enjoyment from watching an insect or an animal than impressing others with our material possessions.
Let's choose freedom.
