Paul GonyeaThe Infinite Power of Life is constantly expressing; it is constantly creating. Dr. Holmes writes, “The Divine Plan is one of Freedom.” We are a part of that plan. The freedom to choose how Life will express Itself through us is the greatest power we have. When we hear that we have been endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, like Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, we should feel honored. And we should live as if we deserved these things, because we do.

However, just because these privileges have been included as part of our spiritual birthright doesn’t mean they will automatically flow out of us and make good things happen. Just like our arms and legs — or our mind — we have to choose to use them. And it usually works out better if we use our freedom wisely and well. Whether or not we are doing so will be very apparent if we just look around us. If our life appears to be getting smaller and smaller, or our problems bigger and bigger, that should tell us something. It should tell us that we need to change the way we are thinking, feeling and being, until we feel it in our heart and see concrete, positive results in our life experience.

So today, let’s all declare our independence — from fear, from negativity and from limited thinking. Let’s consciously express the freedom to choose the kind of live WE want to live. And in the process, let’s know the same freedom for every other person on the planet! ~ Rev. Paul Gonyea
