    Natural  way of living is a free way of living. It is a way of living different from  the habitual and conditioned way of living. It is a way of living without getting attached to our desires. Our attachment to desires makes us bound by our desires. And we all know that when we are bound by the desires, we go through the inevitable swings of pleasure and pain, elation and depression, ups and down in our life.  Suffering arises from our attachment to desires.

    Wisdom traditions have offered different ways of liberating ourselves from the clutches of our desires. If we pay our full attention to what is happening in our body, mind and heart.  We get helpful feed back from our own selves. We pause, recognize,  and allow ourselves to witness  without judging what is happening in the present moment. We inquire and get an insight and an answer from within. This process helps us to make a wise choice. We learn not to make a self hurting tight fist.If we don't make a  tight fist, we don't hurt ourselves.In the quiet inner space, we make a conflict free wise choice.

    It is my understanding that it is the self that liberates itself. Such ongoing  non-judgmental awareness has helped me to walk on the samyak- the right path.We need to remain awake inwardly to enlighten our path.This is my everyday practice of living.

    May we let the light within us shine to  guide us to walk on the natural, wholesome, and blissful way of living!

     I am so unable to liberate myself!  I lack the power to do so because I am JUST a person.  I attached myself to God at a young age, that He would set me free.  Being personally attached to God, He set this captive free!  I can be married, a mother, a friend ... functioning "naturally" under the influence of Him.  Amen.
