Freedom means you control how you respond to the world

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Here on earth you live with many other people and many other nations. Since you can’t control everything that happens in the world, freedom means you control how you respond to the world. You control who you are, what you think and how you feel, and that shapes everything you experience. Freedom means you express your power to realize your goals and desires, so that nothing can take away your natural joy to be alive.

You are free when you can be the purity of yourself no matter what happens to you or to the world and when you allow the purity of yourself to always shine under all circumstances. The light of your own energy can chase away any darkness for you and promote healing problems that confront you. You are your true creative Self, and you create your own freedom by using your power to develop, protect, and express your life on your terms.

Freedom does not mean being free from adversity or difficulty. Freedom is the knowledge you have the power to conquer adversity and difficulty. If you could ask any animal living free in the animal kingdom, they would tell you they aren’t free from “trouble.” Predators are everywhere, and life is a daily challenge. It takes effort! But all animals were born with instincts to protect them, and were given special talents and abilities to help them stay alive and pursue their life in freedom. It is the same for you. Living with over four billion other people on Earth, you will not be entirely free from “trouble” of many kinds. But the wisdom, intelligence and creative power of your Silent Master is with you always to guide, protect and support you. Freedom is knowing you are connected to this power source and that you can put it into action to conquer adversity.

You, and you alone, have the power to make yourself free, because taking charge of your life is a choice. Since you have within you right now your Silent Master consciousness, the creative Life Force of the universe, all you need do is choose to discover it. And then there’s only one more step needed to complete your freedom: Take action!

WHAT IS FREEDOM?

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

WHAT IS FREEDOM?

To me, one of the most perfect pictures of freedom is nature in the wild. Birds are free to fly wherever their instincts take them, to the highest mountain or to the water’s edge. Bears, rabbits, deer, creatures of all names and sizes, freely roam the land, each finding their food and shelter in their own individual way. Animals freely express their unique individuality. No animal tries to be like another. Mountain lions don’t try to live like deer or eat their food. Rabbits don’t try to hibernate like bears. All animals take their individuality for granted, “trusting” that nature provides everything necessary to fulfill their every need.

And the elements of nature are also free and joyous, expressing and contributing their gifts abundantly. The sun shines faithfully and warmly no matter what happens on the planet below. Rivers flow through their native surroundings bringing food for life. And beauty is everywhere. The clouds, winds, rainbows, butterflies, light filtered through the forest trees all come together in a beautiful picture of harmony.

You are a part of all this! Freedom, beauty, and originality for you is exactly the same as for nature’s beings and elements. You are an original! An individual, unique and special. You have your own talents and abilities, and don’t have to imitate anyone else, or want what they have. You have your own special purpose. To discover your Silent Master is to realize you have the power to create your own freedom. Living free means you put your freedom into action. You are the one in charge of the direction of your life. You don’t let life happen to you. You don’t let yourself be a victim.

A Meditation

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

MEDITATION

Right now, I can express my Silent Master. Today, and every day, I can express more of my true Self. Love within me is showing me true desires and true directions that bring me peace and joy and harmony. I am one with the Love of my Silent Master, so I can hear the voice of Love talk to me every moment, guiding me with true thoughts, ideas, and attitudes which help me create my greatest good. I willingly let go of every trait and every desire that is not my true Self. I let go of every person, place or thing that is not part of my true being and my true purpose. I can allow pure Love to shine through me and attract everything good to me. The potential for everything that I need to fulfill myself is within me now, and I am allowing Love, my creative energy, to bring it to me in the right way at the right time.

The Right Use of Patience Promotes Victory

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

The Right Use of Patience Promotes Victory

In the apple tree story we see how each would be farmer started out doing everything right. They all had a specific goal that was reachable, they were enthusiastic and committed, and they all even visualized the desired outcome. They didn’t just dream of their success; they took good action to set their goal in motion. Nothing should have hindered the manifestation for each, but unfortunately six of them at various stages became victims of their own impatient, undisciplined thinking.

But when you act as the seventh farmer did, you are well on your way to our ultimate goal of freedom!

PRACTICE

ONE

As we discussed, rebirth happens every moment you change in a positive way. When you express negative qualities, or when someone expresses them to you, you have an opportunity, even then, to put your own original Love into action. You have an opportunity to discard the negativity, and replace it with the truth about your real Self. Look back over the past week and think of situations where you expressed negativity. There may be many or few. Instead of criticizing yourself for feeling and acting the way you did, look at an alternative action you could have taken in each situation. Jot down your responses this way:

“I felt jealousy in this situation and I reacted by…. Instead I could have…and both of us would have felt better.”

Or, “I felt anger when that person spoke to me harshly and I reacted by…Instead, I could have said or done…..and we might have avoided the conflict.”

Notice the purpose of this exercise is not to prove you were wrong to have the negative emotion, but rather to show how a positive action or shift in attitude can help eliminate the cause of the negativity, and promote a new and different Self-Concept.

TWO

Try this exercise before you go to sleep, when you’re relaxed and your mind is free. Imagine that you are some kind of energy broadcasting station. Perhaps you can see yourself as a sphere of light, or perhaps your energy is invisible. However you do it, in this state you now have the ability to broadcast a message to anyone and everyone you choose in your present environment. You’re going to let them know of your new goals, your new self-concept or your new path. Look at your parents, for instance, with your new energy “eyes.” Begin speaking to them, no matter what you see them doing, and know that your message is surrounding them and will be heard in some way. Tell them what kind of person you are and what you would like to bring to them and to the world. Tell them what you hope to do in life and what you need from them to help you do it. Broadcast to any friends or associates who also need to hear your message. This exercise is a form of visualization that actually helps create the life you’re “broadcasting.”

It’s not over ’til it’s over – stay loyal to your goals!

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

“It’s not over ’til it’s over.” Nowhere is this truth more clear than in watching athletes compete in the Olympic Games. Since the abilities of the Olympic athletes are so competitively similar, often the winner leads by a fraction of a second. Sometimes it’s so close that the winner is only determined by looking at the film footage. In track competitions we also see instances where a runner behind the one who looks like he’ll be the winner suddenly pulls out and overtakes the person in front, winning the event by less than an inch. How important it is to persevere with all your commitment until the very end! Olympic athletes know all too well that at the end of the race, letting up just one little bit can cost them a medal. In the same way, you too must persevere with full commitment until you reach your goal. The seventh farmer was not defeated by difficulties at the last minute. He persevered until the apple was in his hand.

The rewards of remaining loyal until you arrive at your goal go beyond just obtaining the goal itself. Every time you win even something small or overcome a weakness or conquer a limitation, you make your true Self more real and powerful in your life. This growth goes on to create more growth, and more challenges that bring out even more of your potential. And where does it all end? In greater freedom for you. The result of continuing Self Discovery is the power to be more free.

Patience, The 7 Farmers, continued…

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Continued from prior post….

Think about this moment! After all these years, all his work, all his patience, he finally had the fruit in his hand! The biggest, reddest, and most beautiful apple he had ever seen. With an enormous sense of pride and accomplishment, he bit into apple, and was filled with peace, harmony and joy. In that moment, all the hardships he had endured, all the hours of work and effort, were worth it a million times over. The quiet love and joy he felt, the bliss, the peace and serenity he found within him was beyond any price.

Is this the kind of farmer you have proved to be? If so, I hope you are celebrating!

This seventh farmer fulfilled all the right uses of patience just mentioned. He waited patiently through all the small steps of the process, he remained loyal to his goal, he kept his priorities straight, he didn’t mistake any stage of the process as being the end, he let himself be guided at the end as to how to get the apples down, and he certainly recognized what his true victory would be. The seventh farmer also did one more thing: he persevered until the goal was in his hand the way he desired.

Patience, The 7 Farmers, continued…

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Continued from prior post….

The last farmer was very small and he looked up in the tree and saw all the beautiful fruit in his tree. His heart beat with happiness and great anticipation as he looked at the victory within his reach. The harvest had come at last. But he didn’t know how he was going to get the fruit down. He walked around the tree looking for a way, and then tried climbing the tree. He reached up and pulled himself up, but a little way up he slipped and fell. So close! He felt a little fear. Would he fail now? After coming so close to victory, would he fail now?

But he didn’t listen to this fear. He picked himself up and tried again. Over and over he tried climbing the tree, and each time he fell down.

He began to wonder if perhaps he could not reach his goal. Perhaps it was impossible, he thought. Perhaps the victory he anticipated was all an illusion! Perhaps he should just give up. His heart sank. Perhaps he would have to give up, he thought.

But the thought of the apple just barely within his reach drove him on. He made another attempt, and another and another.

And then! Finally, stretched out on the highest branch, reaching just a little further, stretching every muscle in his body, he could just feel the skin of the fruit. But could he reach any further? In the next second, with a grasp, the apple was in his hand.

Patience, The 7 Farmers, continued…

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Continued from prior post….

Just as the fifth farmer shows us the wrong use of self will, this sixth farmer shows us the wrong use of patience. Patience does not mean we expect our goal to be handed to us on a silver platter if we just wait long enough. This farmer celebrated a victory of the wrong thing at the wrong time, and therefore missed his true victory. He became a little too self satisfied and smug by praising himself on his hard work, without realizing he needed to do something about the results of his hard work. It’s true he successfully grew the apples, and that was a fine accomplishment, but it wasn’t the real victory. The real victory would be to harvest the apples, and putt them to use. Isn’t that why they were grown? The seven farmers didn’t set this: let’s grow apple trees for kicks. No, their goal was to harvest and eat the apples.

When you have a specific goal, you must recognize the moment of your true victory. For example, let’s say you desire to heal a broken relationship. You work hard to gain more purity and understanding about your true Self. Finally you realize that you have learned many new concepts and ideas, and released many bad habits. In fact, you have changed for the better. This is a great accomplishment, but it isn’t the ultimate goal. At this point, simply patiently waiting for the broken relationship to heal will most likely be totally ineffective. Instead, at this point, you need to actively use what’s been learned. Then a total victory can be won. Recognize your true victory.

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Continued from prior post….

Instead of realizing that to get the apples down was another stage of the process, and to wait patiently for an intelligent way to do so was yet another stage, he impetuously jumped in and used unintelligent “force.” This is the wrong use of self will, and if you do this you are likely to destroy what you have built. True will, as it comes from your Silent Master, is intelligent and effective when expressed, and produces harmony. True self will is a result of listening to the inner voice of your Silent Master as it guides and protects you, and leads you into harmonious action. If this farmer had taken the time to patiently listen within, a perfectly suitable solution to his problem would have appeared, and he could have enjoyed the fruit of his labors. Let yourself be guided when necessary.

Another farmer looked up at his red apples and began to savor all the hard work he’d put into them. He congratulated himself on all the sacrifices he’d made all the sweat and toil. He lay down under the tree with his mouth open waiting for those sweet apples to fall down into his mouth. He waited, and waited, and waited…and finally, a big deep red apple fell into his mouth. Quickly he bit into it, but to his surprise it was mushy and rotten inside and a huge worm crawled out as he looked at it. He regretted that he had wasted his time and left feeling cheated, having nothing but rotten apples to show for all his efforts.
