“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (II Corinthians 3: 17)
Let freedom reign! Let it reign. We can recognize and rest in the fact that our liberty is not based on human laws, history, or material conditions. We have freedom because God is Spirit and because Spirit–infinite Truth and Love–is in every place at all times. We can’t be separate from our liberty any more than we can be separated from our own being.
God is present and active. He is consciously and constantly expressing Himself through our lives. His perfect qualities which fill all space are actively setting us free every moment of every day and even through those long dark nights when our vision of things seems dimmed. Infinite Mind is boundless and its ideas can’t be caged in fear or limit. No one can imprison Spirit, and this is the very substance of your life. You are a native of a heavenly earth and subject to the laws of infinite kindness and abundant opportunity.
Let’s celebrate our liberty today and every day. It’s certainly wonderful to commemorate and our national heritage, but our freedom didn’t start with the Founding Fathers of a nation (as they themselves also knew), but with the Founding Father-Mother of us all, the creative Principle, God, in whom there is always naturally and necessarily liberty and justice for all!
Happy Independence Day!
