No, freedom is not easy. One of my favorite speeches is from the end of the movie The American President when the character of President Sheppard puts it on the line:

“America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You’ve gotta want it bad, ’cause it’s gonna put up a fight. It’s gonna say, ‘You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who’s standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours.’ You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest.”

Too many Americans seem to have forgotten what the First Amendment says. It states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The First Amendment does not say freedom from religion. It says the government cannot establish a “state” or “national” religion. It does not say that people who do not hold religious beliefs have the right to restrict others from practicing the religion of their choice. To the contrary, it states exactly the opposite.

We are guaranteed the freedom of speech not the agreement of speech. We are guaranteed the right to protest peacefully not the right to harm other people or their property in protest. Citizens have the right to petition the government but we are not guaranteed to get what we want.

All these rights have an important place in Divine Freedom. As lightworkers, we are on the path of true freedom for everyone. Divine Freedom gives everyone the same rights. It is not us against them. It is us with them.

No, freedom is not easy in the United States or in the process of spiritual evolution. Before you speak out or act against another, consider your motivation and ask your soul if you are allowing for Divine Freedom for all. You are a light bearer. Hold your banner high and shine brightly so that others may follow.
