The Great Escape Part One

Freedom

In some respects most of us have a sense of being free.  We feel we can make our own choices about what to do as long as we do these things within the confines of our laws, cultural mores and beliefs.  But right there we see that there are some restraints placed upon us from external forces.  As long as we are living we can say we are not entirely free.  We must work within the parameters of our physicality.

What I wish to discuss here however, is freedom from ourselves.  In other words freedom from the restraints we place upon ourselves.  Each of us individually puts ourselves in our own private prisons.  The process starts in infancy and continues throughout our lives until or unless we begin to become aware that we have put these bars around us.

Most of us will not see that we are in prison and will live out our lives in a sort of automatic kind of existence.  We think we are living freely but in truth we are going about our lives inside our personal prisons as though we are asleep.  There is nothing wrong with this but it does not leave room for personal growth and evolution and nothing will really change as long as one is content with this state.

At some point some of us will begin to see that there is more to life that what we currently perceive.  We don’t know what this “more” is but we have a sense that it is there just out of reach.  So we begin to seek this “something more” and we begin to realize it is not that easy to access it.  There are many reasons for this but at this point in our search the reasons are unclear.

What is needed is assistance from others who have already found “something more” and have released themselves from their prisons.  These others will offer to help us to ‘get out of jail’ and we will begin to be introduced to those who are seeking to make the great escape as well.  With this combined effort we help each other attain greater and greater freedom.
