Growing into freedom

how to develop and re-establish freedom within yourself in a step by step program on your own

The possible solutions on how to re-establish lost freedom within yourself, your own life in every possible situation are manifold. Here a few possibilities. You may follow some of these steps and realize success within months or a few years. The priority in which these points are written may be of some importance to you. First there is some mental work involved in intellectually understand what you plan to do, why you do it and how these steps may help you increase or re-establish freedom within yourself and promote freedom within your family or surrounding as well.

1. it is recommended that you get yourself some sort of college block or similar notepad - to be used as a spiritual notepad or workbook - to write the results down and review them frequently. Write down any changes, improvement or new ideas you found.

2. Find out where exactly in life you lost your freedom. What part in life would you like to be changed. What decisions would you alter when you could decide freely without any influence from outside.

3. Find out how and where you limit or destroy freedom in others, your children, family members, employees, friends, partners and other persons animals.

4. Where do you want others to behave in a certain way to please your expectations rather than let them freely develop their own creativity and readiness to take responsibility and make decisions on their own.

5. Where do you try to prevent others from making their own experiences, including what you may consider mistakes that you have made yourself before. Let them repeat whatever you have done. There is no copyright on experiences or "mistakes", it all serves the process of spiritually growing and developing and realizing Divinity within each soul. Each one shall have the freedom to either repeat any experience himself or learn from watching others, whatever he prefers.

6. Remember at this point that children are going at school since hundreds of years, learning again and again the same lessons. No one wants to keep them from learning and repeating what you and other adults have learned and practiced before. Life is but another type of school. Life in general is a spiritual school and this planet is one of the many classrooms with a particular lesson to be learned by ALL citizens on this planet. They all have been attracted to this very planet because of the similarity of their Karma and lessons to be learned, hence they all may NEED to be allowed to learn and practice many of the same lessons as others did before for thousands of years. Learning is best done by doing. The more people are allowed to do freely, the wider the amount of experiences the may collect from a single incarnation and the more they will benefit from this present incarnation. Eventually they may even be capable of obtaining freedom from the cycle of reincarnation within this present incarnation. Please support them all in achieving such a spiritual and Divine goal.

7. What did you always want to do in the past and what would you like to do now if you could ? Write down all experiences, recreational activities, adventure, anything you ever thought or still think of "I would like to ", then find out whether you still would like to do or have it. Write as many points you can find within. Write this on a separate sheet of paper or page in your spiritual notepad. These may be simple things like wanting a different outlook in your dresses or hair style, participating in a SCUBA diving course, even a introductory class of diving - an event of half a day - may do it at first, going on a camp out, on a long walk, ride across the country, taking a course in dancing or simply go out dancing again to your favorite place, changing your job, learning something different for a future job - this may require you to sign up NOW in a particular course or training program to realize these changes sometimes in the near future within the next year or two, getting divorced or separated in friendship and love from your present partner, from your employer or employees, leaving a particular club or membership of any kind including membership in a particular church or religion that you disagree with and always wanted to leave but never did, have an ice cream, dine out or see a movie that you like. Go out for a full weekend or take a vacation for a few days, weeks or even months, that you haven't done for months, years, decades or even never in life. Sell your home or your car and move to another place, region, country, even go to a remote island, into the jungle for a while or to the Himalaya or any suitable place or environment such as an ashram, monastery for a spiritual retreat of many years The possibilities are manifold.

8. Out of the above list of "I would like to " take now ONE and realize it within a week. Make sure that you take a point that you can afford easily from the financial point of view. Remain free when realizing these points, free also in the financial sense. Avoid making debts, taking loans or binding yourself by contracts to realize your freedom. If money is needed to realize your wish or your activity, get rid of some of those things you haven't been using for a while and turn them into money to afford your freedom. Debts and contracts limit the freedom of mankind and should be avoided at all. After you realized the first point take another one. Realize this point within another months. Limit your points mainly to activities rather than to material things. By becoming active you start to actually live and realize your God given freedom.

9. You may repeat this procedure of realizing your freedom and fulfilling another point out of this list another few times. But latest after 3 or 4 points have been realized, burn your list and write a new one of what you NOW actually would like to do. because this may change during the course of improved realization of your freedom.

10. The purpose of this procedure is to learn, see, feel, realize throughout your being that you can do what you want and it was but YOU - your mental limits that prevented you from doing so earlier. You may need to learn to act in a responsible way. Become aware of the law of Karma and all spiritual laws to ensure that you only create good Karma if at all or you learn for the benefit of the creation and in harmony with God, learn to do what ever you do in the name of God, give the results of your activities to God, devote them to God, whatever you do and you may achieve the capability to act in harmony with the first and great commandment of Love while remaining free of any Karma. Remaining free to do whatever you like and want to do.

11. Realize that no one else but YOU are your own boss. No one else but YOU has the right to decide what YOU like to do and what and how YOU actually do it.

12. How often do you or did you say "I must " ? may be several times each day. Most of the people do so. watch yourself and find out how often and in what situation you use the expression "I must ". no one must do anything at all. Even breathing is free. If you have the power to stop breathing at will, then you have the freedom and right to do it by the power of your own Divinity. Realize that in most if not all situations where you use "I must " no one else is involved at all. Most of the time people use this sort of expression in various languages of this planet to do simple personal activities, even to go to toilet or to go working. However the word "must" implies a force from outside or an inner pushing force. Even working is something you do out of your own will usually. Because YOU selected a certain life-style that may require a certain amount of money each month. And it is this amount of money that may require that you go to work. It is within your own power of decision to reduce your expenses drastically and hence reduce the necessary amount of time to spend making money accordingly. You may even decide to become a small and self-dependent vegetarian farmer, producing all you need in a really small farm and producing something you love to produce to exchange with others to get all those few things you may need from the outside of your home. Hundreds of millions of people on this planet still live and exist that way. And many of them are still free and feel better than most "civilized" people in the industrialized countries of this planet. One of the most valuable achievement you ever can get is freedom. Most people in "civilized and industrialized countries of the first world" however are slaves of either the government, tax department, employers, their bank if the bank owns part or all of their business or property and many other factors.

Civilization in the spiritual term is the capability to take full responsibility for yourself on your own and to help and assist all others in need directly and without the interference of any outside organization, government agency, medical services or professionals. Help and supply, if needed share your own property directly with those in need. Have the time to help when ever help is needed by your family members, neighbors or any one in need. If you are in such a position then you are in a civilized country. Learn to exchange self-centered egoistic behavior with Love and care for ALL. Withdraw from career oriented living to social and Love oriented being in happiness, even is this may mean conducting a simple life with fewer TV's, cars, less electricity consumption, fewer dresses and shoes in your cupboard.

You may live from a fraction of your present income, while remaining free and healthy, you may even cut the amount of taxes to be paid to almost zero. The point is to first reduce the amount of money needed to live by limiting your needs, your living to the minimum really necessary including housing or apartment really needed. The more you spend you more you depend on your employer, bank, house-owner, insurance, government and others - the less freedom is actually left in your life. The more you reduce your living expenses, the less you actually have to do to finance it, the more freedom is left for you, for your family, for recreation, time to spend with family and friends, to take care of all those needy ones around the world and just across the street from you. People need Love to be happy. To Love people you need time, to have time you need freedom. If you have the freedom to take your time whenever someone needs help to dissolve sadness, frustration, depression -YOU may need time to supply them with the Love and care they may need to be completely and really released and healed from their problems and feelings of loneliness, depression or helplessness. Every time a professional has to go out there to help someone is a defeat of society and culture, a defeat of your own Divinity. In a spiritually healthy society there is no need at all for psychiatrist, and similar professional services. Mankind itself is Divine and has the Divine power to dissolve and heal any depression, any loneliness by the power of Love and with Divine assistance and Bliss from God - free of charge. But time is needed therefore and to have time you may first have to realize your God given freedom to take time whenever you need and want it. Anytime someone needs help and you may have the choice to go at work or help, think about what is more important, to assemble another computer, repair another car tire, bake another pizza, or to help a human in distress. If you helped someone in distress and are late in your job, do you need to excuse yourself for being late - NO - because you did the most normal what mankind can do and is learning to do on earth, in this spiritual classroom of God's Divine creation - you practiced the first and great commandment of Love with someone in distress. NO excuses toward anyone -because learning and practicing to help, to love is the reason we are here on earth, far away from God - the infinite and Divine, far away from our own eternal home in the Love of the Divine. If humanitarian help and social welfare becomes the only responsibility of insurance companies, agencies, governments and professional services, then mankind has missed one of the single most important lesson on earth - the single most important thing on this planet is Love. To learn to Love all mankind, all beings, all creation and actually proof your Love by helping all in need NOW is INFINITELY more important than any material, commercial, industrial or other activity of any kind. Actually if you are late for helping anyone in need, even your own children or family members, if they are ill, society should be thankful for you doing your job as a human on earth. Your job as a child of God by practicing Love instead of wasting time for career and material development.

13. Now that you start to become aware of your "I must " - situations. It is time to change your own behavior. Start to say I want ... if this is really what you want to do, else leave what you planned to do. never do anything by force applied from anywhere. Remain free and become aware of your freedom of choice anytime anywhere. Learn to completely void the word "must" from your vocabulary. Anyone being truly and absolutely free, free as God made mankind, always may do or want to do things but never "must" do anything. Whatever you do shall remain your own choice. But once you have decided to do a certain job of any kind, quit saying "I must " and - instead say "I will " or "I want ", or just do it with this in mind.

14. Learn to accept that any decision you make, any word you say or think causes some Karma that may return on you. If your ROI (return on investment - here in the spiritual context) is great, that means it takes lots of efforts and lots of time and energy to receive and dissolve it. Keep in mind that whatever you do to others may somehow and someday come back to you causing you to be bound to receive your Karma until it expires. Hence your increasing Karma, whether it is positive or negative Karma makes no difference, it may cost part or all of your freedom. Learn to conduct a life free of any Karma. Because any kind of Karma may bind you for some time up to a full incarnation or more. Karma may cause or actually be the only cause of your loss of freedom.

15. Learn to remain free of whatever deprives you presently or in the past from absolute freedom. Make a full and detailed inventory of why you feel without freedom and what would you need to really feel free. Write it point by point on your workbook. How did you get into that particular situations that reduced your freedom. How to prevent it in the future. Remember: For any job, loan, contract, marriage, to get pregnant, become member of a organization or club, to commit a crime, it always involves at least two persons. One of them has been you. Whatever you did in the past - you either did say YES to make a positive, active decision or you were silent and forgot to say YES or NO, hence you made a passive decision. Both were YOUR actions and decisions. Even remaining silent is an action that may cause Karma.

16. Learn to stay out of any situation that previously caused any kind of problems to you or limited your freedom and learn to conduct your life in accordance with spiritual laws and finally with the great commandment of Love.

17. Learn to accept that any Karma that you caused previously needs to expire or to be dissolved in a spiritual way before you can become free of that Karma.

18. Learn to accept that life consists mainly of a large variety of spiritual lessons FOR YOU. Your present situation of life, in job or family or social environment may represent exactly such a lesson. Before it makes sense to leave your present you may need to realize what exactly you have learned from this situation of life. And you may need to apply all you have learned. Else, if you part without anything positive learned from life, you risk to end up in a similar or equal situation soon after again. If you lack freedom in your life, it may be because you either have restricted the freedom of others before or still do so currently.

19. Before you can enjoy absolute freedom you may need give absolute freedom to all others, mankind, animals, just to all and anything before being free yourself. Protect and restore freedom of others where ever you have the chance to do so.

20. Finally one of the single most important point to learn and practice in order to really get free is to learn about life and death. Learn about your spirituality, about god's Divine creation. About life beyond the physical plane that you may see now and consider the only world existing. An old teaching says

"those who realize the truth, will be free through the power of the truth".

If you realize the Love and guidance you receive from God and Saints from beyond the physical plane of existence and If you become fully aware of the truth of your spiritual being, if you experience your true being of light, using a physical body, rather than being a physical body, then you will instantly loose all fear of death. However death is one of the most powerful instruments used and abused to manipulate people to do what others want you to do. if you lose any fear of death, you may never be challenged again by those who want to abuse their might. Awaken your spiritual awareness and develop your spiritual growth continuously. The more you experience personally about the spiritual world behind the physical world the more freedom you may feel and the more you will truly realize the full sense of life on earth and beyond. Spirituality is a science to actually experience and practice, it is far beyond mere theory. Every one can and shall experience and live his spirituality. Spiritual growth and education always has been free on this planet and beyond, in the past, present and also in the future it shall remain so. That means spiritual education and growth is free and affordable for all even the poorest ones among you. Some of the other chapters and workshops offered on this Web Site may help you further on your spiritual path to absolute freedom.

21. When you finished successfully this initial program of re-establishing freedom within yourself, your life and your family, then you may find other steps to be undertaken. Make sure that you really understand the importance of giving freedom to all others as well. I mean ALL OTHERS. LOVE is a infinitely more powerful tool and help to assist others in growing up and getting wise and mature. Learn to do whatever you like and want to do. think first about all possible consequences and Karma. To fully understand the creation of Karma you may initially study the spiritual laws and before realizing your plans, compare your plans and see whether they conform to the spiritual laws. These spiritual laws are far above any human made law on earth or any other planet or dimension. What governments and national laws allow or prohibit has little if anything to do with the absolute law. For a person to be really happy and free it is important to conform to absolute laws of the Divine creation. Note that the only real law ever coming from God, is the first and great commandment of Love - Love each other, anytime time, anywhere and under any circumstances. The spiritual laws as describes under "Yama and Niyama" an excerpt of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, are but a help to initiate the realization of the commandment of Love. However it is the most valuable approach on this planet so far.

22. Learn more about the spiritual truth of your being, about life and death, by reading some real wise spiritual literature such as the yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Since the original is written in Sanskrit, there are many translated and interpreted versions available worldwide. The most valuable version in english is "The Science of Yoga" by Prof. Dr. I.K. Taimni, a Professor of chemistry previously in India, published by the "Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar, India". Another excellent book is the Baghavad Gita, the most brilliant and spiritual version in English language has been written by Paramhansa Yogananda. Paramhansa Yogananda, the author of the world famous spiritual treasure "Autobiography of a Yogi" has brought the sacred technique of Kriya Yoga from India to America early this century and other great Yogi are continuing this blissful work throughout the world now. These are some of most classic books on this planet, but others may proof valuable as well for various situation and persons. On the Cyberspace Ashram's Web Site you may find many helpful and informative texts and workshops to enhance your awareness and understanding of spirituality and opening yourself to become sensitive for spiritual energies and the worlds beyond this physical plane. including some advanced workshops and initiation to Kriya Yoga to awaken your spirituality and spiritually free yourself from the cycle of reincarnation. Finally it is the goal to make spirituality a practical experience rather than a theoretical study. Spirituality can be experienced by anyone. One scientific method of God-realization is Kriya Yoga, because it uses absolute knowledge of metaphysical physiology of mankind and the universe as the basis for all techniques applied to actually experience your spirituality by expanding your spiritual awareness and consciousness and achieving God-realization while having a physical body.

The wealthiest and most mighty are those having achieved God-Realization and absolute freedom in God Once you have achieved this freedom, you are connected to the source of all Love, the source of all power for eternity
