Where Innocence and Joy Reside

Truly Free

This was a must to share from Tania Marie’s wonderful blog post. I have never heard it put this way, but it so resonates.

Spiritual people can be some of the most violent people you will ever meet. Mostly, they are violent to themselves. They violently try to control their minds, their emotions, and their bodies. They become upset with themselves and beat themselves up for not rising up to the conditioned mind’s idea of what it believes enlightenment to be. No one ever became free through such violence. Why is it that so few people are truly free? Because they try to conform to ideas, concepts, and beliefs in their heads. They try to concentrate their way to heaven. But freedom is about the natural state, the spontaneous and un-self-conscious expression of beingness. If you want to find it, see that the very idea of “a someone who is in control” is a concept created by the mind. Take one step backward into the unknown.

  1. glad you also resonated dawn! i whole-heartedly believe this. been seeing how the new “spirituality” out in the world is based on an old foundation..new thoughts, beliefs…but with rigidness and rights and wrongs. there is another/many other way/s that is/are more natural and freeing.
