Freedom is Within

When I became a fan of  "Message from God" the TV series I signed up to get daily messages. I had totally forgotten that until I got my life in alignment with the way that I feel God wants me to live my life.

It's interesting that it was only then that I started getting the daily messages. Today's message for me:

"Freedom is much misunderstood as freedom from something, as outward facing. Such freedom is illusory. Real freedom is freedom from mental sins of desire, hate, prejudice. Real freedom brings peace, grace, bliss"

I find this is true with "Financial Freedom". Too many people believe that they will be financial free when the incoming exceeds their outgoing money. While this seems only logical, the truth is that you can have that and still not be financially free.

I remember a conversation I had with a man that was also on the shuttle to the LA Airport that had money in abundance but he was not in bliss or at peace with where his life had taken him.

I was on my way to Cambodia and there was a sharp contrast to the people there. Cambodia is one of the poorest nations yet I saw families that were at peace and bliss because they could be a family.

You might not be aware of Cambodian history, but during the Vietnam Era there was a dictator that separated families by killing parents and older children were raising not only their own siblings but other orphans. A very dark time indeed.

So you can see why families are so special to these children now grown. Something we take for granted in America is having the opportunity to be as a family.

I invite you to look at your life. Do you feel freedom? Do you cherish all the blessing that God has given you?

REMEMBER FREEDOM COMES FROM WITHIN

The First Step to Peace within ourselves

 

If you google "inner peace" clipart what you will see is a lot of pictures of people doing meditation. For me peace comes from honoring yourself. That is why I love this picture. I see in it the joy of seeing all that we are and still loving it.

So the first step to Peace within ourselves is being willing to see all aspects of who we are. One thing I realized about myself is that what I didn't like in others was the part of me that I didn't love.

Can you experience another being and like every aspect of who they are?

If not, why not?

These are the two questions I invite you to explore. For the next month notice if someone does something that really gets under your skin.  Ask yourself if anything that annoys you can be found in what YOU do. Why does it bother you so much?

I believe we were born into this world perfect with all the capacity to love unconditionally. What changed that? Did you listen to all the negative comments about who you were? Did you let people's words create doubt of your worth?

When you make "mistakes" do you beat yourself up or do you realize that "we learn from our mistakes"? There have actually been times in my life that what I saw as a mistake ended up being the perfect way to get to my next step in life.

I would love to hear about your experience and what you noticed this month.
