“Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson
Liberty comes whenever truth and love are balanced in the expression of life. Love without truth is fire that will soon become an inferno. Truth without love is a cold and desolate place. When the power of love is conditioned and contained within the matrix of truth, abundant, flowing vibrant life surges forth.
Life is meant to manifest according to the pattern of “As above, so below. As inside, so without,” but much in the world as we know it is arranged in such a way that “above” and “inside” are rarely considered and even less often understood. Moreover, there is much in the world which will pull a man from living within the pattern of love and truth.
The liberty you’ve long sought is immediately at hand. But take heed: it cannot be gotten; it must be revealed from the inside out, or put otherwise, from above down. You must be eternally vigilant, watchful that you let your heart be filled only with love and your mind be governed only by truth. In so doing you rise out of the confused and pathetic state of self-centered madness and into a state of radiant, balanced and purposeful living.
