"A released sense of Life in God"

Today there is a need for release from the ever-increasing pressures of modern society. College students are depressed and discouraged by the mounting demands of their courses. Businessman are burdened by their work load and the decision-making responsibilities inherent in business life. And even harried housewives become distraught with the multitude of duties involved in maintaining a home and rearing a brood of active youngsters.

What is the answer to all this? How do we escape? Where is the place of rest and release? Is it found in turning tail and scuttling away from our responsibilities? Can we find lasting release by drowning our troubles in alcohol or by deadening nervous tension with tobacco or tranquilizing drugs?

No! None of these false expedients solve anything. They only entangle us more deeply in the toils of material sense and make it more difficult to demonstrate genuine freedom.
