What road are you traveling?

by Susyn on July 30, 2012

 
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.

I really enjoyed your talk. It resonated with me and I was very inspired by it. So much so that I forwarded it to my dad and sister. I think there should be much more focus on this type of thinking and lifestyle that how programmed we have become through media and consumerism. I wish they would incorporate this knowledge and healthy mind, body, spirit connection in our schools. It would certainly improve a generation to a kind, respectful and have a better impact in own hearts, families, communities, cities, provinces or states, countries. I would have benefited a lot more hearing positive messages than I have wood work or art. Thank you for enlightening my day and I am spreading the word about your website. Thanks again, Monica
