God is Freedom

I do a lot of questioning, and asking questions. Sometimes, it is really good to exercise what you most deeply know is true by just simply saying it. Others do not have to agree. That is not the point. What is realized through consciousness cannot be reasoned or argued for with others, because it is not about mind and logic, but about waking up in Light and awareness. My point here is just to air out what I know is true in a world of countless opinions about everything. I differ between an opinion and a gut level knowing that emerges out of your most luminous experiences, your most wakeful states. Here is some of my knowing that brings great joy to every cell of my body and synapse of my mind.

God is complete and perfect freedom. And God is Love. God’s will is Love. Love is the meaning and guiding principle of Life. Love always gives freedom. There is no real Love without freedom and no real freedom without Love.

This is very good news.

God is free and has given us freedom. We are free to pursue Love, Light, lightness of being, joy, harmony, wholeness, blessings, healing, release. We are free to share all this beauty with others, to see them open and find release and freedom in Love. We are free because God is free.

This is very good news.

God is free and gives all his creation freedom. All the angels of God are free in Light and Love. All glorified humans who are now in higher worlds are free in God’s Light and Love. We don’t understand God because we don’t understand the relationship of unconditional Love and spiritual freedom. God is free. God is freedom. God is Love.

God will not make decisions for us. God is not that way. God has given each of us free will and it is required of us to exercise free will in every aspect of our lives. God allows us to make our own choices and God is totally for us doing this. We get in bondage when we are afraid to do this, afraid of punishment for “making the wrong choice,” for “missing the will of God.” Fear is missing the will of God for the will, or purpose of God is Love and freedom. Fear is constriction. Love is expansion. Fear is regulation. Love is spontaneity and creativity. If we understood this difference clearly we would began to understand God and God’s ways.

God is free and gives us freedom to create heaven or hell, joy or misery, compassion or vengeance. It is always our choice. We are here to experience this.

Religion is a constriction of God’s free nature into forms in an effort to preserve them. You cannot preserve Love and freedom: you can only point to it, surrender into it and become it. To the degree that religion substitutes security for freedom, to that degree it misses God. Jesus taught we must transcend religion as he did, we must renew and transform, it, expand it into greater Love and Light. Only in this way can religion be a living communal form for human liberation. Only in this way can the beauty of God continually flood through it in freshness and freedom.

The only security in a mortal life is openness to the Divine Nature in the center of our being. All other security is an illusion for everything changes and all things will be lost to us in the end… except what we are in our core. This pure Light of Life will emerge into the freedom of God.

The caterpillar that seeks security is deluded. It is meant to die, melt down and emerge as a new creature. There is no security in being a caterpillar except in following the Life instinct within it to die and be reborn as a butterfly. All clinging to the caterpillar stage that moves against this free flow of the purpose of Life within it is born of fearful delusion.

Look at the birds. See how they function in spontaneity and freedom. Observe the free movement of wind, of fish, of animals. All elements move freely; all living things function in complete, spontaneous confidence. In everything is a natural peace, everything knows its true nature and ways, except for mankind. Our journey home is into a natural peace, a fully confident rest in the heart of our hearts, the essence of Life within which is the Light of consciousness. This Light is a free radiance. It is higher than all bodily densities, all pain, all pressures, all stress. It is what it is, Light, lightness of being, silent, observant, free. This is our foundation. To rediscover our essence is to get our foundation right.

Freedom is our foundational essence and right. Love is our way, for Love is the great harmony of free creatures.

God is Love. God is the Great Harmony of all. God is the essence of all. God is utterly and completely free. Those who resonate with God express Love and freedom. We can undo all our constrictions and grow in resonance with God. This is very good news.
