Salvation is no compromise of any kind. (A Course in Miracles)
What does spiritual awakening mean?

I declare myself free


Newness brings a subtle sense of aliveness, excitement and passion to life’s present moment. Life without newness feels unbearably dull and monotonous. 

So I embrace new perspectives, new friendships, new music, new routines, new situations, new challenges, new places, new possibilities, new recipes, new things.

Something about being human is this fundamental hunger and drive toward exploration. We cannot allow limits on our freedom. Happiness is approaching the present moment with an open mind, a heart that is alive, and a “yes” always on the tip of our tongues.

Doing is knowing. So we do what excites us—going all the way into wherever it leads, yet without clinging to any of it. Now we declare ourselves free to experience it, free to think it, free to say it, free to keep it or let it go.

The way we feel is far more important than what anyone thinks. Thoughts, rules, or emotions limiting freedom are unnecessary obstacles preventing the doing of what we are here to do. 

So I declare myself free. I live my freedom lovingly and allow others the same. Here we are in passion, truth, and beauty. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
