July Idea of the Month

Well of course, July's Idea of the Month would be about freedom. Ultimately, that is what leading a spiritually-guided life is all about. Spirit is free and as we work toward advancing our spiritual growth, we work toward advancing our freedom. Freedom of choice, freedom of thought, freedom of expression. No matter our current circumstances, we have freedom of thought. We always have and we always will. One great example of this is the classic: Viktor Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning." This is about surviving the Nazi concentration camps and how the thinking and mental attitude of every person Frankl encountered affected their ultimate survival or not in the camp.

This is an extreme example. But we must continue to remind ourselves that we have the freedom to choose every thought we have, and every emotion we feel. Do not give up that freedom. Do not let this freedom go to waste.

Until next time, Namaste
