Spiritual Freedom

Do we really have spiritual freedom? Are our choices limited by our beliefs and values? Unfortunately, for many, it's difficult to imagine, much less accept, that we don't have spiritual freedom.

Everything we know about spirituality comes from a prepared buffet of religious choices. Each one purports to be spiritual freedom that connects us to the Absolute Power, God, or the Greater Power.

Some of us believe that with Enlightenism, we can connect to the Greater Power on our own. In other words, our spiritual freedom is not limited to the choices created by others' beliefs and values.

We acknowledge that our freedom comes from our clarity to accept ourselves as being born whole, perfect, and complete. And, upon our birth, this awareness-of-being was altered by others who taught us about race, color, gender, religion, age, status, and education.

Spiritual  freedom is the clarity to understand that spirituality and consciousness are the same. This means when we are praying or seeking solutions for our problems, we are actually seeking to connect with our inner power to give us the clarity to do the work ourselves.

Nevertheless, until we awaken to this great truth of inner power, our current awareness-of-being is our only source of clarity.  For us to create a new awareness-of-being, we must unlearn the beliefs and values responsible for our current problems. This new awareness-of-being must be created from non-toxic beliefs and values.

Meanwhile, to achieve spiritual freedom, we must first unlearn the illusory beliefs and values preventing us from accepting our unconditioned consciousness as whole, perfect, and complete. This is all the clarity we need to understand that spiritual freedom exists only within our consciousness.

New Beginnings

In the process of New Beginnings, the victim in us fights for survival each time we desire to do something different. Whenever we seek change, the victim in us cries for others' approval of our actions. Unfortunately, it's this dependency on others that fosters deep-seated doubts about letting go of toxic relationships.

Nevertheless, there are times in our lives when we must begin anew. Whenever we feel this way, we must be willing  to let go of toxic relationships and create new, non-toxic ones. These are the times to trust our actions and stop asking others for their approval.

Regardless of the intensity of our desires for change, by holding on to what others have taught us, make us victims of their beliefs and values. All that we know about relationship-building come from beliefs and values absolving us of personal responsibility for the outcome of our relationships..

Whenever we begin new relationships, we enter into them without first having done the work to cleanse our minds of the toxicity from the last one. Unfortunately, this awareness-of-being prevents organic change. Nevertheless, our awareness-of-being continues to think of change or a new lifestyle from a toxic perspective.

In other words, we don't really know how to start over. So we continue to believe new experiences are actually new beginnings in consciousness.

Meanwhile, we continue to change our relationships with people rather than our awareness-of-being. The purpose of changing our lives is the recognition that new beginnings must come from a new, toxic-free, awareness-of-being.

The following passage from the book of Enlightenism assists with illuminating "New Beginnings":

     "The first and last ingredient of the formula is to live and embody your awareness-of-being. The sole purpose of Enlightenism work is to create a new awareness-of-being. This new awareness-of-being must be as toxic-free as possible. You now have the clarity to understand that your awareness-of-being determines not only what you think of yourself, but your actions."
