This July 4th, as we celebrate America as a free people and give thanks for those who fought to secure our freedom, we are invited to realize that freedom is a natural gift, born of consciousness. In Paul’s letters to the churches, written WHILE IMPRISONED, he exhibited that freedom to amazing degrees! Freedom is not dependent upon circumstances, but rather upon consciousness! It comes from within! Ours is to recognize, accept and celebrate it in the face of ALL outer conditions! Only we, ourselves can limit it, and then, only by our thoughts and words! So, let’s let Freedom ring forth from WITHIN, showing and leading the way for those around us to join in the song! God bless America!
