The Most Precious Freedom


On Feb 12, 2007 Colleen wrote:

"Being at the center of the universe" is to live in a state of fear, for the self is in a constant “duke’s up” stance against any threats, like pain, rejection, loneliness, loss, etc. Yet, when the self realizes that most others are acting from their own fears too, the self senses a oneness with others, and in oneness there is no center. I believe this is where freedom begins.
