BluesAintNothingBookCoverAnyone can seek spiritual freedom. Some people seem able to attain this level of enlightenment, but no one can sustain it on a continuing basis. Spiritual freedom means that we live out who we are, doing exactly as we please, without any disparity between what we want to do and what we should be doing.

When you reach this state, you are past worrying about how well you are performing. Also, you’re seemingly indifferent to obstacles and dangers. This naive fearlessness is very similar to the spontaneity of the child.

The central quality in this spontaneity is that you can trust yourself. No longer expecting to be certain or perfect, you give yourself over to being just who you are at the moment. Satisfied to be able to do what you can, you discover your ability to do far more than you could if you were still distracted by the question of how well you were doing.

Spiritual freedom comes when you devote your full attention to the task at hand.
