This freedom presents itself to us as a paradox; an inconsistency, an illogical truth. We are free, now to make ourselves miserable. We are free to make ourselves joyous. We are free to live like a god. We are free to live like a demon. Nature has given us our freedom because we are now evolved enough to make a mature choice. In short, Nature trusted our intelligence. But unfortunately, we humans take our own time to make use of that intelligence, we rather frolic within the touch and feel of all the material aspects of life, while unconsciously trapping ourselves within the frame work of the paradox. We believe that we are self entitled to do whatever we want, whenever we want. We feed our egos with a positive view of our entitlement, as if we were at the pinochle of what a human life is suppose to be. In truth, we are a long way from being at the peak of our potential. Our altruistic mind set has not yet reached its full capacity. We still long to leave our deepest foot print as a acknowledgment of "my magnanimous life;" yet the shekels are never released.
Some were along our life line we must sit face to face to acknowledge what and were our truth lays. Whether we are solid enough to advance our truth, and expand our capacity to engage it within multiple levels of access and with out compromise. There is an old proverb which goes; "Error runs down an inclined plane, while Truth has to laboriously clime its way up hill." Truth can never be killed; hence the failure to sweep away entirely from the face of the earth every vestige of that ancient Wisdom, and to shackle and gag every witness who testified to it, is not possible.
Existentially life is moving toward its ultimate nature, of its own accord, and you also put your energies into it by moving faster. That is, you are turning consciously spiritual with your own momentum, collaborating with Nature's plan, and that is all that is necessary for you to do.
Thank you H.B.P. One truth, many paths. Be good, do good.
