The soul wants to be free, but wanting freedom isn’t enough. Freedom is only attainable after the sorting out of the true and false. If something is true, then it cannot be threatened or taken away. Freedom is truth. Truth is eternal. So if freedom is eternal, it must be something you already have.
Now we look at the false, only to let it go so that perfect freedom remains. You will never find freedom in that which is unstable or changing. Temporary freedom is not freedom, it’s just a situation.
Your freedom does not come from any situation or anything external. Not a career, not a relationship, not money, not a place, not an accomplishment, not an improved political situation in your country, and not even an entirely new economic system. Freedom does not depend upon the permission of your parent or partner. It doesn't even depend upon the safety and protection of your body (which will age and eventually die anyway). Seek freedom in the realm of physical form and you will find only fear.
I said before that your soul wants to be free. The truth is that your soul is freedom. Find it in this present moment. Feel it through love. “When everything you retain is lovable, there is no reason for fear to remain with you.” A Course in Miracles
You are spirit; therefore, you are freedom and you are love. Freedom is simply knowing your true identity. You now create and serve from that place, and freedom effortlessly manifests into the world of form. Freedom in this world is possible, but worldly freedom is the effect and not the source. You are the source—the light which abolishes darkness. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
