Freedom Attracts

When you are interiorly free you call others to freedom, whether you know it or not. Freedom attracts wherever it appears. A free man or a free woman creates a space where others feel safe and want to dwell. Our world is so full of conditions, demands, requirements, and obligations that we often wonder what is expected of us. But when we meet a truly free person, there are no expectations, only an invitation to reach into ourselves and discover there our own freedom.

Where true inner freedom is, there is God. And where God is, there we want to be.

This is a great piece of truth. Yet it is so hard for us to actually embrace isn't it.

hi-
nice to meet you. thanks for stopping by my space.
what a great thought this is. it makes me want to examine myself and let go of things that bind me, so that others will be offered the gift of freedom in my presence too.
