Inner Liberty

Inner Liberty

“Gallantly, ceaselessly, quietly, man must fight for inner liberty. Inner liberty depends upon being exempt from dominion of things as well as from domination of people. There are many who have acquired a high degree of political and social liberty, but only very few are not enslaved to things. This is our constant problem—how to live with people and remain free, how to live with things and remain independent.” — Abraham Heschel

Inner peace leads to inner liberty.

It’s not the fight we have with each other, it’s the inner battles we have with our own desires, demands, and concerns — the battle is often won or lost in our minds.

We beat ourselves up over regrets, mistakes, and failures, so we look at how others are doing and justify our place in the context of their lives, not our own.

Truth is, we are all just trying to figure it out.  We’re all much more the same than we are different.

We have to get quiet with ourselves and then with Our Creator.  I’m not convinced we can live in true freedom or peace without The Source of Life being our strength.

Stop fighting the external battles, because they’re never-ending.  Instead, receive from The Source and He will give you strength, wisdom, and clarity.  He will set you free and He is the source of inner liberty.
