Freedom is an internal perspective. All of your life is lived in your internal experience, what is outside of you is merely a reflection of your beliefs, perceptions and reactions. How is an action different from a reaction? It would seem that an action begins from within you and a reaction is a response to something that began outside of you, but in truth, they both begin within you. You are the common factor in your life at all times. Love is the connective flow that opens you to the fullness of your own Being and the unseen truth of God in form. As you seek the perspective of Love in all situations, even the challenges, you open the gates of freedom that can show you the glory of Life. From that perspective, your actions and your reactions are the impulse of Love interacting with Life.
At times it’s easy to feel stuck in poor choices (lesser of two evils) or what seems to be no choice, but choice is always available. This physical world is loud, distracting and seems so solid. Yet your internal world is your vast, powerful soul speaking to you and through you. How do allow that to shape your view of Life? How do you view your ability to navigate it? Your Freedom is the choice within you, which manifests as action/reaction. Listen to the prompting of your soul that glorifies your unique Beingness. Listen to the pulse of Love that quietly calls your attention. The world around you will clamor for your attention. Your choice is your action/reaction. What happens when you react with Love? What happens when you forgive, forget and forego the option of maintaining the chains of the past? Allow the past to become wisdom rather than an excuse for anger. That is the truer definition of reaction - taking an action that is the same as in the past. The Freedom to choose a new action or inaction (which is inward action) is what changes the world one moment, one person at a time. Choose.
