I live in a beautiful part of the United States — on the east end of Long Island, New York. You may know this area by another name, The Hamptons. As beautiful as the physical environment is, there is an amazing, heart-warming spiritual community here. I think of it as The Un-Church Church – the official name is The New Thought Spiritual Center of Eastern Long Island.
Since I have been traveling a lot this year promoting my book, The Inspired Life, often make plans so I will be home on Sunday mornings to participate in the Sunday Service and a few times a year I deliver the sermon, the message. I got to do this recently when I was in town. The theme for the month was Freedom. One of the gifts of being invited to speak is that as I prepare my 20 minute message, I get to explore the topic.
As I thought about freedom, and spiritual freedom in particular, many questions popped into my mind:
- What is freedom?
- What blocks me from experiencing freedom
- What is the freedom road?
- Who would I be, if I allowed myself to truly be me?
What I discovered, as with everything else in life, is that freedom is a choice. This choice begins in our mind. Do I experience the circumstances of my life as though I am a victim or do I choose to view every circumstance as expression of love or an invitation to deepen and expand my capacity to be, give and receive love?
Here is the message I gave on July 15th: Are You Traveling the Freedom Road? Listen to it and let me know your thoughts on freedom and the road you are traveling.
