The space above our eyes is the mind...the freedom!!! The thing that makes us great if we choose to be, but also what makes us slaves to the world if we're not careful. God says "He knows what we know not"... and still he's given us free will to choose for ourselves. That is the greatest blessing to those who do understand this and such a curse for those of us who cannot see beyond our own flesh. Are we free because we can say whatever we want when we want? Or because we can choose to do or not do something? It only means that we have permission to be ourselves that God created, but we aren't free from the consequences of anything that we stand by and let happen to someone or that we're doing to someone ourselves. What happens to us when we don't give simple acts of kindness to each other? We begin to tkae on attitudes that damage our character. Leading to unkind actions that range from many different levels, but we become guilty of it. You see, in the fleshes temptation, or the hunger for things in life that only comes because we have the freedom to choose it... we lose sight of the perfection of the spirit that God creates in us. We are allowed to enjoy life to the fullest, but not at the expense of anyone else. Let us look at how we judge each other and in that same judgement we develop an arrogance in us that takes our spirit away from God without us being aware of it. This is how off balanced we've become in our freedom. Because we've been chasing the wrong king of fulfillments in this life. Now ask yourself... is the freedom of your own thinking adding to a Heaven on Earth or raising a Hell on us all? Just something we should think about as often as possible... Thanks for listening.
