Freedom Comes With Giving The Reins To Christ

Freedom is what you feel when you are in line with the laws…all the laws, not man’s laws (I do not know if there is anyone who could be in line with all of  those, there are so many and they are so bizarre and “warp-able”) but this is not so with the laws of God…and this is the law that I am referring … Read More Freedom Comes With Giving The Reins To Christ

Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

If you are going to be free you are going to need to think for yourself and this is not something that is accepted in society. Even the “outliers” tend to have a group that they interact within and if you are going to be free you need to be autonomous or self sustaining. You need to understand that you will be misjudged, envied, … Read More Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away

I re-read a statement in a book on leadership that I read a couple months ago. “When someone joins an organization, that organization’s values eventually take precedence over the individuals values.” I believe that this is why people are so afraid of organized religion and it is not found in the gospel of Jesus Christ…it may be found in the culture of the church … Read More Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away

Freedom Requires Leadership

Freedom requires leadership, first of the self, then for others. It is accountable. It is self reflecting and self analyzing. It is constantly changing in small ways to correct itself to the fullness of the inner truth that one seeks for like a miner panning for gold. It celebrates the small accomplishments but does not shy away from accepting the flaws within oneself. Freedom … Read More Freedom Requires Leadership

The Battle for Freedom is the Battle for the Right to Believe, to Exercise Faith As We See Fit

The battle for freedom is the battle for the right to believe. The right to exercise faith in truth or in falsehood, In that which brings growth, light, and life to intellect, spirit, and/or body or that which brings dead ends, darkness, and ultimately death to intellect, spirit, and/or body. Mankind lives by faith, the right to personal leadership if you will, the ability … Read More The Battle for Freedom is the Battle for the Right to Believe, to Exercise Faith As We See Fit

Freedom To Serve, Is To Acknowledge Ourselves In Others

Freedom to be part of something bigger than ourselves, at least our immediate, physical self. That is a gift given by the creator and that we may choose to give of ourselves. Births and weddings and tragically, deaths also bring this boldly to our minds. Freedom involves the ability to give of ourselves. It may be as simple as a smile or a hug … Read More Freedom To Serve, Is To Acknowledge Ourselves In Others

There Are Kindnesses All Around

I just had to add this footnote and say that I do know that there are those who do kindnesses all around us. And I am grateful for that. I have many in the branch (congregation) that I attend at church currently. That does not keep me from seeing a universal illness that needs to be addressed and come down with an impact that … Read More There Are Kindnesses All Around

I am the learner/student/servant. I am the messenger. I seek the Holy Ghost and his direction along the way. You might say I consider the Holy Ghost The Master Communicator of the teachings of The Master, Jesus Christ. While I am a member in good standing of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints (Mormons) I in no way speak for the … Read More Disclaimer

Forgiving Ourselves Can Sometimes Be The Hardest

Sometimes the person hardest to forgive, as we go through life, is ourselves. Even when we try with all our might to do our best it is sometimes not good enough and we just plain mess up. This is a part of freedom and a part of realizing that this life is not true “life” but a testing place where we get to learn … Read More Forgiving Ourselves Can Sometimes Be The Hardest

If You Choose To Fly (Be Free)

You just might end up an outsider for a while, maybe permanently. Is it worth it? YES! If it means life, then the answer is a resounding YES! The reality is, that it is possible to “fly” and live at a much higher level than the majority of mankind is currently willing to do and that if you go after those heights you may … Read More If You Choose To Fly (Be Free)

What Others Think of Me is None of My Business

When it comes to being free when do you decide to be real? And what about the fact that we are social people? In other words we are not just one person, or even two people, we are several people and we need to be nice and not get into other people’s business or allow our feelings to be shown so that we do … Read More What Others Think of Me is None of My Business
