Please find out what your status of freedom is and correct it where necessary.
Freedom is the basis for Love to develop and the basis for health and The basis of general well being and happiness in your life.
Freedom is one of the most valuable gifts God gave to mankind. It is one of the most powerful as well, it let's you feel like a child of God - made to the image of God. But who of you truly feels like a child of God, who of you can truly say "I am free !" ? Let's have a look at freedom, what it is, how it feels and how to restore it.
To know exactly what freedom is, we may first have a look at a few examples of the opposite of freedom. The opposite of freedom is slavery.
The old fashioned slavery, where a person was property of another person still exists in certain countries - however usually in different forms than earlier. Modern slavery is different and often in disguise. Hundreds of Millions of people on this planet feel uncomfortable without knowing why. Often it is due to lack of absolute freedom. Freedom to do whatever they want, whenever they want.
Politicians may be slaves of their political party, of their own ideas, of their own beliefs and desires, of their own career or of their wish to be in a reputable position and to be mighty.
Citizens may be slaves of their country, of the politics in their country, being restricted in their activities, restricted in the free expression of their opinion, selection of jobs, selection of the educational system of their own choice, to travel or leave their own country. Managers may be slaves of their own business, position, investment, system, ideas, projects.
Partners within a family may be restricted from doing whatever they want, they may be restricted by their partner, by contracts of marriage, by their cultural system.
Children and babies may lose their freedom to their parents, to their teachers, to educational systems, to the government who deprives them of many potential rights and their divine freedom while being children, to the church or religion they have been made to belong to.
People may also be restricted in their freedom, behavior and activities by their religion, the church they belong to, their religious beliefs.
Or people may have lost their freedom to their family ties, financial burden, banks, suppliers, customers, debts, contracts they signed, marriage, their children or parents, their government or political system.
The ways to lose your freedom are manifold. We will then have a close look at different precise situations, then you may have a look into your own situation, into your family, job, financial situation, political situation of your country of residence and / or origin and finally you may find out your very own status of freedom. You may realize exactly to what degree you really are free and you will learn to free yourself in peace and with love from all attachments, boundaries and restrictions, physical and mental. Those who benefit from your present situation may dislike it, but you certainly will enjoy it and it frees the potential within yourself to truly love all mankind and those who restricted your freedom previously as well. You may even be able to help those to get themselves free of their mighty position and become self dependent and responsible for their own life. Freedom is Divine - it was given by God to you and no one ever has the right to restrict your freedom even by the smallest degree. God gave you freedom and it always will remain your freedom. You and only you have the right to decide how YOU are going to handle your freedom.
When you have truly realized absolute freedom in your life, then you certainly know exactly how it feels to be free and what freedom is. To circumscribe or define the status of absolute Divine freedom may be difficult. Freedom is, if any day, any second of each days time you can do exactly what you want, what you decide, you can be where you want to be, then you are free. The vast majority of the world's population at present has little or no freedom at all, without being put in jail. Their mind, country, job or home are their jails. Most of the world's population have put themselves into jail without realizing it.
To make you fully aware of the definition of freedom I'll describe a few examples of various situations in life where people currently have lost their freedom partially or completely on this planet. From these situations described you may derive a full understanding of the definition of freedom and get a clear and shocking picture of your own status of freedom within yourself.
This healing shock that you may receive from your very own realization of your loss of freedom that you accepted may however give you the drive and power to finally realize your absolute freedom and once achieved, preserved it eternally. Even better, once you have achieved absolute freedom, you may develop Divine Love toward all and help others to achieve their freedom as well or protect the freedom of the few who still enjoy freedom on this planet
Governments may restrict the freedom of most citizens to almost zero in some countries and control the freedom of most or almost all of the national population in most other countries. Control is nothing else than deprivation of freedom, because control is needed to verify the compliance of their population with the national laws and rules set up by that government implementing the control. In a controlled environment, individuality and Divine creativity has little if any room to develop. Individuality however is Divine and a prerequisite in order to grow and develop wisdom by experiencing. Actually experiencing life and all possibilities of life in God's Divine creation is the fastest and easiest way to spiritually learn and finally become free from the cycle of reincarnation. God is ruling his creation where ever mankind opens for God in his wise and Love flooded guidance. God guides by the power of Divine Love and wisdom. God is Love, whoever truly loves to the full extent of Divine Love as God does is really almighty. Almighty in the absolute and Divine sense of the word. Hence Love can rule any country or planet without interference in the absolute and Divine freedom of any single individual soul or personality. Any restriction of freedom extends the duration and efforts needed to reach a certain spiritual goal. It restricts the flow of spiritual energy and guidance as it does limit or restrict the occurrence of individual and creative decisions made by intuition rather than forced by peer pressure coming from some outside sources.
Some parents restrict the freedom of their children by various means. Parents feed or dress their children without often asking whether they like it or would prefer something different. Children are put to bed at certain times, have to wake up at certain times, eat at certain times. They are brought to church or religious education without asking them whether they like it or not. They are put in certain schools, often they have to learn or study at school what their own parents missed or would have like to study themselves. That means children are often abused to realize the dreams and expectations of their parents. Children are sometimes forced to learn or study a particular career, to take over the family business or even worst, to get married with a certain person of the parents choice as it is still custom in India and some other cultures. Parents forget that they have invited the children to come to their family as guests. Parents had sex and parents created a body for a soul to visit them. However the children always have selected exactly these parents to reincarnate while knowing in advance what kind of social climate, social environment and lessons may be expected. Parents consist of a woman and a man and neither of the two ever can say they were forced to have sex, because they always had the opportunity to leave their partner anytime before they had sex for the first time, before they had children as well as they had the freedom to leave each other anytime after as well. Hence, it was finally their free choice active or passive, to have children by deciding or accepting to have sex. Children are guests and the parents are hosts. The more Love children receive, the more freedom they will be allowed to realize, the happier their children may become. But it should be a freedom filled with the true and divine Love rather than control and restriction of the children. Guidance means advise of all potential future possibilities resulting from various decisions and actions they may take. Children however are often kept as hostages rather than as guests. Children should have the right to dress however they feel comfortable in, to eat what they really need and like because they have a totally different energy body and thus have totally different nutritional needs than their parents. Children should be allowed to learn what their soul benefits most from, to develop creativity by being allowed to realize and to live their God given freedom. Parents and teachers should watch children, to see where they have their talents and support the God given talents of each individual soul. Let them make their own individual experiences, select the activities and topics at school they like most. Love them and give them wise advise and a neutral insight of all aspects of an upcoming decision to be made - then leave them the freedom to make whatever decision they finally make.
Finally the children have to live with their own decisions. Hence they also have to live with their own Karma they may cause if they decide so after being made aware of all aspects of possible decisions, including any possible Karma resulting from the different wrong choices they have.
Fathers and mothers being divorced or separated may limit the freedom of their common children if the parents decide where the children may remain, with father or mother, instead of father and mother at the discretion of the children. All children have a Divine right to freely see both, mother and father, whenever they want and to live with whomever they decide themselves. Parents often decide when, how often and under what circumstances children may be allowed to see the other part of the divorced parents. The one of the parents who gets legal support for the children quite often is using his legally strong position to force the other part to live in a certain way, at a certain place, to pay a certain amount just to be allowed to see his / her children. The love between the children and the leaving part of the parents, often deprived from legal rights as a parent, is abused to manipulate both children and leaving partner or take revenge - at the expense of the children and at the expense of painful Karma to be expected in a later situation or later incarnation by one or both parties of the parents involved.
Children do limit the freedom of their parents by remaining financially dependent on their parents longer than necessary. Many modern children in the western world start studying for many years without earning an adequate amount of money to cover all the expenses of their studies and living. They sometimes decide to stay at home until 25 or 30 years of age or longer, even while having a job, at the expense of missing experiences they could make in the world away from home. Sometimes it may be laziness or economical reasons, because it may be cheaper or easier to have everything done by mom or dad, rather than do it themselves. It may be easy to leave the responsibility to their parents, but at what expense? It is a Divine duty of anyone, even young children after 12 to 14 years of age to seriously start working toward becoming free, financially free as well. Many children use their studies just to avoid or postpone actual working for a living for another several years. Children after the age of 10 to 12 years shall be responsible enough to take care of themselves even for several days in a row without the parents being at home, every once in a while but at least a few times a year. They need to learn to grow up and become mature, responsible for household, their own belongings, washing, laundry, household, cooking and more, including to take care of other family members. When else but in this time of life can they learn to do all this. The best opportunity is under the loving guidance of mother and father during their early teenager years. The best time is during their early teenager time. Being a host for guests - children - is beautiful, but one day the time of being a host may be over and parents have other lessons to learn in life. Parents may need freedom to travel to other countries, learn other jobs or activities, even permanently move to other areas or countries to find and realize new valuable lessons for their own spiritual growth. While at the same time being a guest may be attractive as well for children, but one day they need to learn to be absolutely free, self dependent and practice to become themselves hosts for other visitors, their own future children or any one else. This means that they need to learn to work to cover their own expenses of living, as well as the expenses of living for another few persons. This should be accomplished with 20 years latest. If they want to study or change their job, this can easily be done at their own expenses at any later time when really needed and beneficial for all. Children may often keep their parents at home, telling the parents that they are afraid, or ill, or need help, just because they may lack of responsibility and willingness to take care of themselves.
Medical doctors and other medical services like hospitals very often limit the freedom of patients by giving them medication without allowing them to make their own decision or take an alternative medicine. Often doctors give no choice but one set of treatment in stead of a number of choices to select from. Many times patients in hospitals are told that they have to leave hospital if they do disagree on the treatment provided or suggested instead of offering them alternatives. They are given no choice but to accept that particular treatment or leave. Often the choice of treatment is made by popularity to the medical doctors. A new and risky surgical intervention may be more beneficial for the Ego and for the career of a surgeon than an alternate medical treatment such as acupuncture, homeopathy or other gentle form of treatments. Also high tech, high risk treatment may be more profitable. Many medical doctors have their own reputation and profit in mind rather than the well being of their patient. They forget to SERVE the patient and have the patient serve them with opportunities to massage their Ego and fill their bank accounts. In the medical field patients are seldom given a free choice of treatment, the medical doctors or hospitals want to provide their treatment of preference. Performing risky medical interventions and medical treatment may further deprive the patients by making them dependent on regular, often weekly visits at the medical centers for follow-up, check-ups and additional treatments, sometimes even for a life time, taking any freedom to move to other remote areas or countries for living. However every possible illness may be treated and cured in various ways using different methods, different also from the financial point of view. Doctors should seriously stop to treat and take care of illnesses and start healing, start to take care of health, rather than illnesses. The same of course applies to patients as well. Patients should stop to take care of and treat their illness and should start to strive for health, support and re-establish health at any price of efforts to be made. Health never is a matter of money, it is a matter of repeated efforts and wise decisions in regard to life style made by each person individually. Illness however is a matter of money and costs dozens of billions of dollars worldwide each year. As a medical professional you should allow your patients a free choice of treatment, even to change the doctor or healer for a particular treatment while still being your friend and patient. You should honestly tell them exactly all of the possible side effects of any prescription drug you give him and you should also honestly inform all patients of ALL alternate treatments available in the world of medicine. Remember that you depend on your patients, because you are making your living from your patients. Your patient never depends on you, even if he dies, he may find peace in God, while you still strive for money on earth. He has nothing to lose, but you may have a patient and friend to lose. So it is your responsibility to be a host and true friend for all patients, rather than just a supplier of a commercially marketed medical service at the highest possible profit. The best patient is one never coming back after your initial treatment because of your excellent treatment and his total cure through your professional advice and help. Learn to actually cure and heal patients, rather making them dependent on further or regular medical treatment or even on apparatus for a life time.
Teachers and educational systems do restrict freedom of children - of souls - by deciding what children have to study and how they have to do it. In many schools even punishments - corporal, verbal and others are still common. Seldom children are allowed to select the topics of study they like or want. Most of the children are forced to go through a standard type of basic education for 5-9 years before they are allowed to make their first selection of further studies. Children are forced to adapt to the way teachers are teaching - instead of teachers adapting their way of teaching to the needs of children. If teachers stop their Ego-trip and start to love their children and students, to respect them as adult souls, children of God, made to the image of God, then they may create a situation of mutual Love and friendship between all children / students and themselves. Teachers should learn to SERVE children, to help them to find their own God-given creativity and strengths rather than finding their weak points. Teacher may further improve the strong points of all children, and help to dissolve the weak areas when desired so by the individual. Teacher should learn to use positive words, thoughts, imagination and affirmation rather than abusing power, might, control of the strong ones and punishments of the weak ones. The present educational system of many nations on this planet are serving the government's and industries goals rather than serving the individual's need for spiritual development. A government typically may want to have citizens who obey their law. Citizens who are free may be uncomfortable for a government because they have learned to think and make their own decisions, make their own plans rather than just following a leader of a government or industry. However the purpose of life on earth is to learn and learning can only be achieved at the fastest rate and in a peaceful situation in absolute freedom. The individuality of each soul is sacred and should never be tempted by anyone else but the individual itself. Spiritual development of a soul is the primary purpose of life on earth and each soul is unique, hence their are as many different ways of learning and teaching as there are souls. With this in mind the scholar system needs to be revised in many countries, particularly in the industrialized countries of Europe and USA, but many others as well. The schools primary goal should be teaching children to become spiritually aware, mature, willing to take responsibility for all their life, their action, thoughts and emotions, to become self-dependent even self-employed rather than being employees of others. Serving the entire creation as a free individual is different from serving a nation or culture as a member of that group - deprived from all freedom - following instructions and laws. Freedom needs to be taught and practiced at school, at home and in real life anytime anywhere by all. The sooner you start practicing freedom the sooner you spiritually awake and become free souls. In present educational systems, most children are taught to follow law and order and learn to say yes to the governments decision. The schools are often abused as instruments of a government to train and educate willing citizens. However it is within the power of each to become free and start to become a captain of his own soul, become his very own boss and be in charge of his own life. At home, at school, in life generally. But whenever you realize your freedom, always keep in mind that you need to provide others with their freedom as well. Whatever action you take, it should be done with Love and in a fully peaceful way. Keep your records clean of any new Karma, because you may still need a few years or decades to clean your records from previous Karma. The only way to do this is in peace and harmony with the Divine - with Love.
Employers do frequently restrict the freedom of employees by the way the have them working. Few employees are allowed free decisions within the full field of of their activities. Many employees actually have no freedom at all during their job. They are told when and how they should do their work. Any upcoming creativity is killed by the many rules set up by many employers. Little if any responsibility is given to them to allow them to feel free. Employees are often regarded as being less worth than the management, directors, or share holders of a company. Time to be present and even when to take annual vacation are often extremely restricted by employers. The spiritual purpose of jobs is to get people together who have common Karma or mutual lessons to learn. That's it. The actual physical work people are doing is of little value. Children enjoying freedom and playing all the time are learning exactly the same lesson while playing or while enjoying Kindergarden as those adults working for multi-billion dollars businesses. Remember, this planet serves as a classroom on a higher level in the Divine creation of God. The spiritual lessons offered here and to dissolve all Karma are the only real purpose of life here. We all need to learn to love all mankind, all creation. This also means honoring each other as equal beings of equal value, equal positions, equal salary. As an employer or in a management position you should make sure to understand yourself, that your employees make YOUR dreams come true. Without employees, no single car, TV, Computer, .... could be manufactured at all as most managers have no skills except commanding, using and "leading" others. However the employees, the technical staff, mechanics actually do the real work. Thus they all should be honored accordingly by given the same freedom, the same rights, the same salary as all management has, as all employers and share holders have. All are children of God, all are Divine and all should feel as such, any time anywhere. Imaging what would happen to YOUR business if all employees are becoming small farmers or free craftsmen, producing vegetables and fruits, or necessary supplies for real life, enough for their family, and YOU are with all your technical equipment, machines, computers ....... trying to eat them - have you ever tried ? Anyone can grow some farming products and live from it, no one can live from technical or industrial products. It is possible to practice vegetarian farming without any technical equipment, without any investment but land given by God to all mankind, this land has been given for free to all, no one can produce a receipt for the very first time land was occupied by mankind, anything that is sold now once was stolen from the Divine creation made by God. Anyone who "owns" land, "owns" stolen land - stolen from God. There is no legal property of any land, even governments can never own land, it all belongs to mankind in general. It is property of all, to be used freely and free of charge by anyone, whatever he needs personally for himself and his family and can handle personally with his family. God is the only legal owner, he created it and by the power of physical laws created by God, he is dissolving it continuously - as one day, far away from now this planet and all physical "matter" has finished to serve its purpose.
Farmers do restrict freedom of all or almost all animals they keep. And the kill beings or pay others to kill. Besides the violence against souls that any killing, human or animal is causing severe Karma it also constitutes a restriction of freedom. It should be left to nature, to all animals and of course God, when a being may be released of its Karma and of its physical body. Modern farming is a simple torture for all animals kept. A torture that farmers may encounter later on themselves as an equalizing mechanism of their own painful Karma that they have caused. Such Karma applies of course also to all those buying the meat and products of farming, as they are paying others to kill and grow animals. In addition many farmers keep as many cattle as possible because it makes them feeling mighty to control and possess other beings and souls. They force the animals to serve their personal need and pleasure just for the purpose of accumulating wealth and money. Freedom is Divine for humans and for animals. Also the general public keeps animals at home for their personal pleasure, cats, dogs, birds, snakes, turtles and many more. Non of them have a truly natural environment and all the natural freedom they would have, day and night, including all their natural food as they could enjoy in their real natural God-given home in wilderness. Any restriction of freedom leads to the Karma of experiencing loss of freedom.
There are manifold ways to restrict other beings freedom. You may as well restrict the freedom of many others. If you realize how many different person or beings are restricted in their freedom by your behavior, then you may realize why so many others also do restrict you in your freedom. Because it is your Karma to receive what you do to others. Whatever you do to others must come back to you. Until you have learned to solve any situation with Love rather than with punishments, might and control.
If you want to enjoy freedom yourself, you may need to give freedom to ALL others before you can enjoy your freedom. Before reaching spiritual freedom you may need to attain physical freedom in your life, because the outside of your life is equal to the life within. Change your outside and within changes will occurs as a result of your efforts as well.
How to develop and re-establish freedom within yourself in a step by step program on your own
The possible solutions on how to re-establish lost freedom within yourself, your own life in every possible situation are manifold. Here a few possibilities. You may follow some of these steps and realize success within months or a few years. The priority in which these points are written may be of some importance to you. First there is some mental work involved in intellectually understand what you plan to do, why you do it and how these steps may help you increase or re-establish freedom within yourself and promote freedom within your family or surrounding as well.
it is recommended that you get yourself some sort of college block or similar notepad - to be used as a spiritual notepad or workbook - to write the results down and review them frequently. Write down any changes, improvement or new ideas you found.
Find out where exactly in life you lost your freedom. What part in life would you like to be changed. What decisions would you alter when you could decide freely without any influence from outside.
Find out how and where you limit or destroy freedom in others, your children, family members, employees, friends, partners and other persons animals.
Where do you want others to behave in a certain way to please your expectations rather than let them freely develop their own creativity and readiness to take responsibility and make decisions on their own.
Where do you try to prevent others from making their own experiences, including what you may consider mistakes that you have made yourself before. Let them repeat whatever you have done. There is no copyright on experiences or "mistakes", it all serves the process of spiritually growing and developing and realizing Divinity within each soul. Each one shall have the freedom to either repeat any experience himself or learn from watching others, whatever he prefers.
Remember at this point that children are going at school since hundreds of years, learning again and again the same lessons. No one wants to keep them from learning and repeating what you and other adults have learned and practiced before. Life is but another type of school. Life in general is a spiritual school and this planet is one of the many classrooms with a particular lesson to be learned by ALL citizens on this planet. They all have been attracted to this very planet because of the similarity of their Karma and lessons to be learned, hence they all may NEED to be allowed to learn and practice many of the same lessons as others did before for thousands of years. Learning is best done by doing. The more people are allowed to do freely, the wider the amount of experiences the may collect from a single incarnation and the more they will benefit from this present incarnation. Eventually they may even be capable of obtaining freedom from the cycle of reincarnation within this present incarnation. Please support them all in achieving such a spiritual and Divine goal.
What did you always want to do in the past and what would you like to do now if you could ? Write down all experiences, recreational activities, adventure, anything you ever thought or still think of "I would like to ....", then find out whether you still would like to do or have it. Write as many points you can find within. Write this on a separate sheet of paper or page in your spiritual notepad. These may be simple things like wanting a different outlook in your dresses or hair style, participating in a SCUBA diving course, even a introductory class of diving - an event of half a day - may do it at first, going on a camp out, on a long walk, ride across the country, taking a course in dancing or simply go out dancing again to your favorite place, changing your job, learning something different for a future job - this may require you to sign up NOW in a particular course or training program to realize these changes sometimes in the near future within the next year or two, getting divorced or separated in friendship and love from your present partner, from your employer or employees, leaving a particular club or membership of any kind including membership in a particular church or religion that you disagree with and always wanted to leave but never did, have an ice cream, dine out or see a movie that you like. Go out for a full weekend or take a vacation for a few days, weeks or even months, that you haven't done for months, years, decades or even never in life. Sell your home or your car and move to another place, region, country, even go to a remote island, into the jungle for a while or to the Himalaya or any suitable place or environment such as an ashram, monastery for a spiritual retreat of many years The possibilities are manifold.
Out of the above list of "I would like to ...." take now ONE and realize it within a week. Make sure that you take a point that you can afford easily from the financial point of view. Remain free when realizing these points, free also in the financial sense. Avoid making debts, taking loans or binding yourself by contracts to realize your freedom. If money is needed to realize your wish or your activity, get rid of some of those things you haven't been using for a while and turn them into money to afford your freedom. Debts and contracts limit the freedom of mankind and should be avoided at all. After you realized the first point take another one. Realize this point within another months. Limit your points mainly to activities rather than to material things. By becoming active you start to actually live and realize your God given freedom.
You may repeat this procedure of realizing your freedom and fulfilling another point out of this list another few times. But latest after 3 or 4 points have been realized, burn your list and write a new one of what you NOW actually would like to do. because this may change during the course of improved realization of your freedom.
The purpose of this procedure is to learn, see, feel, realize throughout your being that you can do what you want and it was but YOU - your mental limits that prevented you from doing so earlier. You may need to learn to act in a responsible way. Become aware of the law of Karma and all spiritual laws to ensure that you only create good Karma if at all or you learn for the benefit of the creation and in harmony with God, learn to do what ever you do in the name of God, give the results of your activities to God, devote them to God, whatever you do and you may achieve the capability to act in harmony with the first and great commandment of Love while remaining free of any Karma. Remaining free to do whatever you like and want to do.
Realize that no one else but YOU are your own boss. No one else but YOU has the right to decide what YOU like to do and what and how YOU actually do it.
How often do you or did you say "I must ....." ? may be several times each day. Most of the people do so. watch yourself and find out how often and in what situation you use the expression "I must ....". no one must do anything at all. Even breathing is free. If you have the power to stop breathing at will, then you have the freedom and right to do it by the power of your own Divinity. Realize that in most situations where you use "I must ...." no one else is involved at all. Most of the time people use this sort of expression in various languages of this planet to do simple personal activities, even to go to toilet or to go working. However the word "must" implies a force from outside or an inner pushing force. Even working is something you do out of your own will usually. Because YOU selected a certain life-style that may require a certain amount of money each month. And it is this amount of money that may require that you go to work. It is within your own power of decision to reduce your expenses drastically and hence reduce the necessary amount of time to spend making money accordingly. You may even decide to become a small and self-dependent vegetarian farmer, producing all you need in a really small farm and producing something you love to produce to exchange with others to get all those few things you may need from the outside of your home. Hundreds of millions of people on this planet still live and exist that way. And many of them are still free and feel better than most "civilized" people in the industrialized countries of this planet. One of the most valuable achievement you ever can get is freedom. Most people in "civilized and industrialized countries of the first world" however are slaves of either the government, tax department, employers, their bank if the bank owns part or all of their business or property and many other factors.
Civilization in the spiritual sense is the capability to take full responsibility for yourself on your own and to help and assist all others in need directly and without the interference of any outside organization, government agency, medical services or professionals. Help and supply, if needed share your own property directly with those in need. Have the time to help when ever help is needed by your family members, neighbors or any one in need. If you are in such a position then you are in a civilized country. Learn to exchange self-centered egoistic behavior with Love and care for ALL. Withdraw from career oriented living to social and Love oriented being in happiness, even is this may mean conducting a simple life with fewer TV's, cars, less electricity consumption, fewer dresses and shoes in your cupboard.
You may live from a fraction of your present income, while remaining free and healthy, you may even cut the amount of taxes to be paid to almost zero. The point is to first reduce the amount of money needed to live by limiting your needs, your living to the minimum really necessary including housing or apartment really needed. The more you spend you more you depend on your employer, bank, house-owner, insurance, government and others - the less freedom is actually left in your life. The more you reduce your living expenses, the less you actually have to do to finance it, the more freedom is left for you, for your family, for recreation, time to spend with family and friends, to take care of all those needy ones around the world and just across the street from you. People need Love to be happy. To Love people you need time, to have time you need freedom. If you have the freedom to take your time whenever someone needs help to dissolve sadness, frustration, depression - YOU may need time to supply them with the Love and care they may need to be completely and really released and healed from their problems and feelings of loneliness, depression or helplessness. Every time a professional has to go out there to help someone is a defeat of society and culture, a defeat of your own Divinity. In a spiritually healthy society there is no need at all for psychiatrist, and similar professional services. Mankind itself is Divine and has the Divine power to dissolve and heal any depression, any loneliness by the power of Love and with Divine assistance and Bliss from God - free of charge. But time is needed therefore and to have time you may first have to realize your God given freedom to take time whenever you need and want it. Anytime someone needs help and you may have the choice to go at work or help, think about what is more important, to assemble another computer, repair another car tire, bake another pizza, ..... or to help a human in distress. If you helped someone in distress and are late in your job, do you need to excuse yourself for being late - NO - because you did the most normal what mankind can do and is learning to do on earth, in this spiritual classroom of God's Divine creation - you practiced the first and great commandment of Love with someone in distress. NO excuses toward anyone - because learning and practicing to help, to love is the reason we are here on earth, far away from God - the infinite and Divine, far away from our own eternal home in the Love of the Divine. If humanitarian help and social welfare becomes the only responsibility of insurance companies, agencies, governments and professional services, then mankind has missed one of the single most important lesson on earth - the single most important thing on this planet is Love. To learn to Love all mankind, all beings, all creation and actually prove your Love by helping all in need NOW is INFINITELY more important than any material, commercial, industrial or other activity of any kind. Actually if you are late for helping anyone in need, even your own children or family members, if they are ill, society should be thankful for you doing your job as a human on earth. Your job as a child of God by practicing Love instead of wasting time for career and material development.
Now that you start to become aware of your "I must ...." - situations. It is time to change your own behavior. Start to say I want ... if this is really what you want to do, else leave what you planned to do. never do anything by force applied from anywhere. Remain free and become aware of your freedom of choice anytime anywhere. Learn to completely void the word "must" from your vocabulary. Anyone being truly and absolutely free, free as God made mankind, always may do or want to do things but never "must" do anything. Whatever you do shall remain your own choice. But once you have decided to do a certain job of any kind, quit saying "I must ...." and - instead say "I will ...." or "I want ....", or just do it with this in mind.
Learn to accept that any decision you make, any word you say or think causes some Karma that may return on you. If your ROI (return on investment - here in the spiritual context) is great, that means it takes lots of efforts and lots of time and energy to receive and dissolve it. Keep in mind that whatever you do to others may somehow and someday come back to you causing you to be bound to receive your Karma until it expires. Hence your increasing Karma, whether it is positive or negative Karma makes no difference, it may cost part or all of your freedom. Learn to conduct a life free of any Karma. Because any kind of Karma may bind you for some time up to a full incarnation or more. Karma may cause or actually be the only cause of your loss of freedom.
Learn to remain free of whatever deprives you presently or in the past from absolute freedom. Make a full and detailed inventory of why you feel without freedom and what would you need to really feel free. Write it point by point on your workbook. How did you get into that particular situations that reduced your freedom. How to prevent it in the future. Remember: For any job, loan, contract, marriage, to get pregnant, become member of a organization or club, to commit a crime, .... it always involves at least two persons. One of them has been you. Whatever you did in the past - you either did say YES to make a positive, active decision or you were silent and forgot to say YES or NO, hence you made a passive decision. Both were YOUR actions and decisions. Even remaining silent is an action that may cause Karma.
Learn to stay out of any situation that previously caused any kind of problems to you or limited your freedom and learn to conduct your life in accordance with spiritual laws and finally with the great commandment of Love.
Learn to accept that any Karma that you caused previously needs to expire or to be dissolved in a spiritual way before you can become free of that Karma.
Learn to accept that life consists mainly of a large variety of spiritual lessons FOR YOU. Your present situation of life, in job or family or social environment may represent exactly such a lesson. Before it makes sense to leave your present you may need to realize what exactly you have learned from this situation of life. And you may need to apply all you have learned. Else, if you part without anything positive learned from life, you risk to end up in a similar or equal situation soon after again. If you lack freedom in your life, it may be because you either have restricted the freedom of others before or still do so currently.
Before you can enjoy absolute freedom you may need give absolute freedom to all others, mankind, animals, just to all and anything before being free yourself. Protect and restore freedom of others where ever you have the chance to do so.
Finally one of the single most important point to learn and practice in order to really get free is to learn about life and death. Learn about your spirituality, about God's Divine creation. About life beyond the physical plane that you may see now and consider the only world existing. An old teaching says
"those who realize the truth, will be free through the power of the truth".
If you realize the Love and guidance you receive from God and Saints from beyond the physical plane of existence and If you become fully aware of the truth of your spiritual being, if you experience your true being of light, using a physical body, rather than being a physical body, then you will instantly lose all fear of death. However death is one of the most powerful instruments used and abused to manipulate people to do what others want you to do. if you lose any fear of death, you may never be challenged again by those who want to abuse their might. Awaken your spiritual awareness and develop your spiritual growth continuously. The more you experience personally about the spiritual world behind the physical world the more freedom you may feel and the more you will truly realize the full sense of life on earth and beyond. Spirituality is a science to actually experience and practice, it is far beyond mere theory. Every one can and shall experience and live his spirituality. Spiritual growth and education always has been free on this planet and beyond, in the past, present and also in the future it shall remain so. That means spiritual education and growth is free and affordable for all even the poorest ones among you. Some of the other chapters and workshops offered on this Web Site may help you further on your spiritual path to absolute freedom.
When you finished successfully this initial program of re-establishing freedom within yourself, your life and your family, then you may find other steps to be undertaken. Make sure that you really understand the importance of giving freedom to all others as well. I mean ALL OTHERS. LOVE is a infinitely more powerful tool and help to assist others in growing up and getting wise and mature. Learn to do whatever you like and want to do. think first about all possible consequences and Karma. To fully understand the creation of Karma you may initially study the spiritual laws and before realizing your plans, compare your plans and see whether they conform to the spiritual laws. These spiritual laws are far above any human made law on earth or any other planet or dimension. What governments and national laws allow or prohibit has little if anything to do with the absolute law. For a person to be really happy and free it is important to conform to absolute laws of the Divine creation. Note that the only real law ever coming from God, is the first and great commandment of Love - Love each other, anytime time, anywhere and under any circumstances. The spiritual laws as describes under "Yama and Niyama" an excerpt of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, are but a help to initiate the realization of the commandment of Love. However it is the most valuable approach on this planet so far.
