Have you ever felt like a stranger in your own skin? As if you did not fit within the world in which you found yourself?
I felt that way many times going as far back as I can remember. I have felt as if I was born too late, or in the wrong geographic location.
Then I happened on a secret that has led me to begin to have radical freedom. I discovered that when I divest myself of the ideas that were placed in my head by my caretakers, I feel more at home in my own skin because I am freer.
Rest of the text for this post follows right after this video pane:
I do not mean I gave up the ideas, for example, about right and wrong that I was taught. I do mean I gave up those ideas about right and wrong that are inappropriate for me. I was taught that people of color are inferior to so-called white people.
That idea imprisoned me. I have worked to dispossess myself of that concept since I learned it was inaccurate and stupid.
Religion was another major idea I had needed to let go of. There was a time when I was so caught in the web of guilt produced by religion that if I missed going to church one Sunday, just one – for good reason, I wallowed in fear of retribution from God for days afterward.
Then there were all the trappings of religion. It was drilled into me, for example, that the book which was regarded as Scripture was the authentic word of God. Turns out that it is paper and ink and ideas developed by humans but given the aura of undeserved sacredness.
Prophets were a big deal too. Beyond obvious wisdom in the writings of these men (they were almost all men), their words were the absolute truth about future times. Turns out that their words, even if really spoken, were written down after the events occurred. Surely they would portray accurate happenings if recorded after the fact.
The biggest problem I had was being taught that unless I believed in a particular way about a particular messiah, I was going straight to Hell after my death. This was the heftiest prison of all. It was their way or the highway – so the church taught.
Believe precisely in a specific person or I was condemned for all eternity to suffer fiery punishment. Absolutely nothing was said about an all-accepting concept.
It has taken many years to free myself from such tyrannies, tyrannies of the spirit. It need not take you as long to free yourself because here is someone offering this freeing knowledge to you.
Along the way you will find the meaning of life and happiness. These are not discovered as some adjunct to everything else, but as integral parts to the whole.
Whether you begin your adventure of radical freedom with looking for meaning in life, or by discovering radical freedom from tyrannies of the spirit first and then understanding the meaning of life, your road is clear and dry.
You see, to find the meaning of life you need to make contact with The Source of All There Is. When you discover The Source you will see or feel no tyrannies whatsoever. The Source is totally and completely accepting of you just as you are.
When you discover your unconditional acceptance you will be happy. Happy because there is no greater feeling that being absolutely accepted just as you are. This is often called love.
But in the midst of that awesome acceptance you will be free, absolutely free, as well. Acceptance means there are no tyrannies of spirit with which to contend or about which to feel guilty. You are radically free in unqualified acceptance.
When you know perfect acceptance, you will feel at home in your own skin. Why? Because you do not need to be in anybody else’s skin. No tyrannies of spirit here. You do not need to be in any other place than where you find yourself right now. No tyrannies.
Work to free yourself beginning right now. Divest yourself of all tyrannies for all of them, all, are false. While you are at it, you will find the meaning of life and happiness as well.
