God wanted man to have free will...But man wanted company...LO, his rib was gone, with his free will!

If thats one part of the story, God wanted women to control her freewill (obviously Eve was misusing it) and he gave her children,

Now man, woman and children started societies...they set rules for them....and now we "pray" for it?? Nah...learn to live within rules, or you will be ostracised,

Home is where the heart is, heart is where there's freedom....and its only in your home you can enjoy absolute freedom :)

that makes sense, right?

Nice photo Lorraine....set aside all those, your freedom lies within you :)

love,
dev

Lorraine said...

Then why do I keep on looking for it? It escapes if I get too close

Devika said...

Lorraine, I guess for all these confusions, you got to know your soul well...

As for me, I can say, i want my freedom of thought and expression (speech- not always) and i can't for a moment think of freeing myself from my people, from my society. I don't want that "freedom" really, though at times I want to roam the world alone...and my family won't let me go like that. Its okay, i adjust..there are other ajustments I make, though in our minds we are free to do what we like :)

Lorraine said...

No no Dev that's not freedom, Freedom is being without Fear of anything, anyone, anyplace, anytime that is freedom...I'm a bottle of fear

Devika said...

Oh fear...I am afraid of snakes, lightning, lions, bulls/cows with horns-- what not! :))

but i don't think about what frightens me, until they come my way :)

Devika said...

And i must say....what i'm afraid about really is, if I'm hurting someone's sentiments...sometimes i'm very casual and the person takes it seriously...if i come to know, i seek pardon,

Freedom lies in the heart of God; the place of eternity; we must PUSH(pray until something happens)on; that's just essentially what this journey is all about; the purpose of return to Godhead

much love

Lorraine said...

The opposite of Love is Fear, and until there isnone left, you keep on returning. there's no freedom until you don't fear thanks Gillena

Devika said...

Gillena, makes sense...in the way, if you choose God as your companion, the journey is so light and fear-free....

But with men and women believing the purpose of life to be procreation, and the pleasures of the flesh and all the worldy entanglements that comes with it....thinking God as someone to fulfil their worldly needs, what will they know about freedom that lies in the heart of God?

Janice Thomson said...

We all have freedom but using it constructively is another matter - it comes with as much responsibilities as does anything else - one day I'll get the hang of it... :)

Devika said...

opposite of love is fear? thats news to me! :))

kidding, what you say is true....true love takes away fear to a great extent and grants freedom :)

dev

Lorraine said...

thanks everyone and still I maintain there is NO Freedom until there is no fear....

Devika said...

But, what fear are you talking about, Lorraine??

fear of God? God is more a friend, than an enemy to be afraid of,

dev

Lorraine said...

lol ok that's funny Dev, God is the one thing so to speak that I don't fear...I know where is my HOME is, and I don't fear it...it's a fear that's pervasive it is within

TALON said...

That photo is breathtaking Lorraine.

I always think of freedom as a time when there are no responsibilities and those very rare times when nothing weighs on heart or mind.

Devika said...

okay, Lorraine...but yes, its all within...only we can understand what we feel :)

i'll pray for you, so you be free of your fear :)

dev

Lorraine said...

Hey Talon, thanks a lot :)

I wish you were a Goddess, than maybe ;) lol but thanks for the thoughts

Devika said...

ha! Me? Goddess....yeah a 'Little Goddess' I am by my name (don't ask me what's within :)

Brian Miller said...

lol. enjoying the banter in the comments...i do think it is found within before it is found without...

Michael Rawluk said...

You have to find freedom at home before you can find it anywhere else.

Lorraine said...

hey Dev thanks for all your comments, it's s lonely when you're not around

thanks a lot Brian...to have no fear you must have an acceptance of the universe and trust that God does everything for a reason...

Maybe Michael,someone without fear, will have infinite trust in Love and God, and know that whatever happens is for the best


To all thank you , I wish I had total faith and agreed that all that life has and will throw at me is for betterment of my Soul...I'm not free...are any of you?
