Finding true freedom

As many countries open travel and business once again, some people are feeling liberated, while others are reluctant to emerge too quickly. But all of us can look beyond what is restricted or allowed and seek something more than just returning to bustling cafés and gridlocked traffic. True freedom is much greater.

The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, goes to the heart of true freedom when she says, “God’s being is infinity, freedom, harmony, and boundless bliss” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 481). God’s being is freedom. God, Spirit, is the real source and essence of freedom—fearless and limitless Life. You and I are inseparable from God, and are inherently free because God, as Life, is so. 

I’ve been a runner most of my life. I’ve also loved climbing mountains and flying down ski slopes at high speed. There’s definitely a sense of exhilaration that comes from pushing past physical limits. But we can never feel—or be—more free than when we become fully conscious for even a moment of divine Truth, God, as the whole of our life. This Truth destroys limits in thinking—or limiting beliefs about ourselves we’ve accepted as fact. These beliefs must change to allow healing to happen and to show us our innate spiritual freedom.
