Excerpt About Freedom
Another dimension of freedom reveals itself as we discover the presence of our true nature. This is the freedom to be ourselves. This freedom to be is most easily recognized in the experience of realization and the experience of true nature, which reveals a kind of freedom that we don’t expect. When we consider any experience of true nature—any aspect or dimension of Being—we notice that in its presence we can discern an implicit sense of freedom. True nature is inherently free. This is a kind of freedom that human beings don’t usually think about, because it is not an external freedom. It is an inner freedom—the freedom of experiencing oneself, experiencing existence, experiencing reality for what it is and knowing it. This is the freedom to be who we are.
