Receiving the power and presence of Spirit requires a still and watchful state of mind. Through the course of your day, you have so many opportunities to practice this—time that you spend waiting for something, time that you spend when you first wake in the morning, when you can listen more deeply within yourself before you get up and become busy with the day, time spent in intervals between activities, time which is wasted by fantasy and fearful imagination, by pointless speculation and by simply allowing your mind to wander wherever it may go in its chaotic state… Read more about finding your freedom and reconnecting with the Spirit power within you.

“The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not “the thinker.” The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter – beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace – arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken.” — Eckart Tolle

“There are people who are freedom oriented and there are people who are control oriented, and the control oriented are afraid of freedom, and they are afraid of Mystery because they do not believe in the essential goodness of the human spirit. They have lost their faith in humanity and have placed all their faith in their ideology and their prescriptions that they believe have come from God. But God has only given recommendations through the great Teachers, not rules—recommendations for living, guidelines for living to help people orient their lives correctly and productively and beneficially.” — The New Message on Religion

“For the power of freedom and the power of God are the same. Here and everywhere in the Universe. And here and everywhere in the Universe, freedom must be protected and nurtured and supported. For everywhere in life, it is challenged. It is a gift. And it is a gift that you as an individual and you as a member of a Spiritual Family must advocate for, preserve and protect.” — Resisting the Intervention

“If your first responsibility is to Spirit, then you are free. But freedom must be earned. Freedom must be won. You must overcome the other tendencies in your mind—guilt, obligation, condemnation from others, the need for approval, the need for financial security, the need for social recognition. These now must be overcome as if you were fighting a battle against enemy forces. They must be overcome within yourself. You cannot have everything. You cannot stay where you are and move forward. You cannot win others’ approval and follow Spirit within yourself.” — The Freedom to Move With Knowledge

To find freedom from the fears and anxieties that haunt you, you must have a new engagement in life.” — Living the Way of Knowledge


“What is worth protecting if it denies you your freedom? What is worth having if it binds you and bonds you to the past? Who is worth being with if all that they can do is remind you that you are weak and pathetic and unable to follow what you know? These are all valid questions. The impediments to freedom are still greatly valued, and freedom is looked at with anxiety and uncertainty. Your prison cell door is open and has been all along. But are you willing to venture out of the seeming security of your bondage?” — Steps to Knowledge Continuation Training

“It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything.” — Chuck Palahniuk

“You must be free from your past sufficiently to be able to move forward in a new direction and to establish a new and greater life than the life you had known before. To do this, you cannot take everything with you. You cannot carry all of your memories like a great store of luggage. The vehicle that will take you into the present and future will not accommodate all of this. Likewise, you cannot carry all of your relationships with you–all of your past loves, all of your friendships, all of your family, everyone that you like, everyone that you dislike, all the people and your memories of them that clutter your mind and keep you emotionally frozen in the past. Spirit will free you, and it will unburden you so that you can be available to it and open to life as it is now.” — Greater Community Spirituality

“Do not call chaos freedom, for this is not freedom. Do not think because others do not limit you that you are in an exalted state. Realize that your freedom is to enable you to find your purpose and to fulfill it.” — Steps to Knowledge

“Freedom is not a right in the universe. It is a privilege and a luxury. Your values may argue with this, but your expectations eventually must conform to the real circumstances of life. Individual freedom is extremely valuable, but it is not guaranteed, and you cannot claim it as a right. You will be shocked to find, as you begin to learn about and even experience the Greater Community in which you live, how rare freedom really is.” — Life in the Universe
