Nouwen on Freedom
Read this from Nouwen and thought it was good. If anyone wants to respond, I would be interested in hearing what you think.

Freedom Attracts
"When you are interiorly free you call others to freedom, whether you know it or not. Freedom attracts wherever it appears. A free man or a free woman creates a space where others feel safe and want to dwell. Our world is so full of conditions, demands, requirements, and obligations that we often wonder what is expected of us. But when we meet a truly free person, there are no expectations, only an invitation to reach into ourselves and discover there our own freedom.Where true inner freedom is, there is God. And where God is, there we want to be."

    Ben, you would enjoy what Manning has to say about true freedom in his writings. I agree with this statement. My track-record of living without freedom has proven it to be true.
