The mission of Authentic Freedom Academy is to support you in transforming your world from fear into love. We (myself, along with the women and men who have completed my Authentic Freedom Mastery program) accomplish this through a wide range of offerings: this blog, books, one-on-one mentoring, online and local courses, and service to the local community. Here is how we do it:
LOVE is your original nature. You were made from love and for the purpose of love. LOVE is all you once knew. Then you forgot. You forgot the love that you are and you forgot that your purpose in this life is LOVE. This forgetfulness has caused you fear, and through this fear, you have experienced suffering. You LONG to return to “that which you cannot name,” but which is ultimately LOVE. Unfortunately, we don’t often know that what we are searching for is the love that is our original nature, so we turn outside of ourselves in search of the fulfillment to this longing. We look for it in money, achievement, success, fame, wealth, power, acquisitions, sex, and in what we think might be love but most often ends up being co-dependency. We might temporarily feel satisfied in our longing through the acquisition of one of the above, but ultimately, this satisfaction is fleeting which causes us to seek for more. We think that there is something “out there” that will make this longing go away – the cessation of war, the victory of our chosen political candidate, an end to hunger, our book making the “best seller’s list,” meeting our “soulmate,” the job of our dreams, better health insurance, a boss who appreciates us, a Democratic majority in Congress, legalized marijuana, etc. etc. etc. Again and again and again we find that nothing “out there” changes a thing. We are still hungry, bored, restless, unsatisfied, lonely, unfulfilled, longing for something more. But still, we never stop searching…..
That is, until life brings us to our knees, and we realize that there is nothing “out there” that will make us whole. We will only find satisfaction in turning inward to the LOVE that has always been there. As it turns out, this LOVE is the remedy to all of our longing and the satisfaction to all of our pain. The irony is that once we discover REMEMBER this LOVE, we realize how truly simple the human experience really is. And this is it:
In every moment of every day, we have a choice: FEAR or LOVE.
Period. End of story. This is all there is. Choose LOVE or choose FEAR. Our life experience is then a reflection of this choice. When we choose fear, our life reflects that choice and becomes a struggle, painful, constricting and small. When we choose LOVE we find the freedom, expansiveness, peace, contentment, fulfillment and joy that has been there all along.
This is it, the purpose of the entirety of the human experience – to turn from the temporary experience of perceived separation that causes us to FEAR and to REMEMBER the LOVE that we are. Period. End of story. It is as simple as that.
