40 Ways to Determine Your Level of Inner Freedom
By Guy Finley, author of Breaking Dependency: Learning to Let Go and Be Free From the Inside Out
Want to know how free you really are? Good! You're about to be presented with a unique opportunity to learn all about your individual level of inner liberty.
Assembled here for your self-study is a very special kind of test. But don't worry! You can't fail this examination. This test is unlike any you've ever taken before. It's designed to help you gaze into yourself and then use what you see there as a gauge to help you determine your level of freedom. Here's how it works.
Following are forty simple internal indicators for evaluating just how far along you actually are on freedom's path. As you review each of the inner liberties on the list, just note mentally to yourself whether or not that particular freedom belongs to you. If you have to think about whether you're free in one way or another, you're probably not as free in that area as you'd give yourself to believe. Relax. This is to be expected. Which means let's not forget our aim in this evaluation. Our intention is simply to learn what's true about ourselves, not to prove anything to ourselves.
You may find some of the upcoming list surprising. If that happens, let it. And then feel free to consider you never knew such a freedom could exist for you because, up until now, you were sure you had no choice but to live restrained in this area. Now you know better! Allow these forty freedoms to awaken and stir that secret part of you that knows living in any kind of bondage is a lie. Then follow your own natural sensing all the way to the free life.
You're Well Along Freedom's Path When:
To help speed your inner progress, go back over the entire list of freedoms at least one more time. In your second review of these forty points of freedom, notice which ones are most attractive to you. Mark down their corresponding numbers on a sheet of paper.
For instance, as #27 points out, maybe you're weary of being caught in that familiar losing battle of trying to make friends and family see life through your all-knowing eyes. It took a long time, but you're beginning to see just how blind you've been.
Now you want to be free of your own inconsiderate and impatient egotism. But try as you may, something within won't let you let go of your unconscious certainty that you know better than anyone else. Good! You may not know it yet, but you're drawing near a very special spiritual victory.
Or perhaps like #10 on the list suggests, maybe you sense how self-destructive it is to resent someone else. And you're tired of being a slave to refueling your own burning mind. You want to be free of those internal, infernal fires. Again, that's good. Now you know two important things...
1. You're not as free as you would like to be.
2. Something is interfering with your wish to be free.
It may not seem so at first, but your new findings are a great start. Now keep going. Use this list and your discoveries to help you ignite your wish to be free. Then step back and welcome the spiritual firestorm. Watch as it burns away the ties that bind. This is what it means to let the Light fight for you.
