The Four Freedoms
The First Freedom: BODY
“Longing, desire, and need melt from our psyches drip sparkling life—renewal in these suits we call our bodies.”—Al Link
Awaken your senses. See, hear, smell, taste, and feel love. Know your body as a divine temple of love, carrier of the soul, manifestation of god and goddess. Become truly at home in your body—at ease, at peace, comfortable in your skin. Allow yourself to experience physical pleasure. Feed yourself and all around you with sublime, intimate human touch. You are your body. Your body is freedom.
The Second Freedom: MIND
“Our words meet and mingle like hummingbirds competing for space at the scarlet feeder.”—Al Link
There are no limits. All limits are self-imposed. Change thought from being your master to being your powerful servant, a tool of your liberation. Turn your thinking on, and turn it off, when you want to. You have the power over what you think. You also have the power over how you think about things. Connect with your higher self for guidance and direction. You are your mind. Your mind is freedom.
The Third Freedom: HEART
“Hearts made sweet by surrender to each other.”—Al Link
Heal your broken heart. Open your healed heart. Give and receive love easily, naturally, spontaneously, and unconditionally. Discover your lover within. Love yourself. Accept yourself. Forgive yourself. Know that you are worthy of love. Acknowledge and welcome the love of others. Dare to be the great lover you are. You are your heart. Your heart is freedom.
The Fourth Freedom: SOUL
“Souls made sweet by surrender to God.”—Al Link
Your body, mind, and heart are windows to your soul. Your soul transcends space and time. It is outside of cause and effect. Your soul is complete and perfect. When you communicate with your higher self, with god and goddess, you are communicating with your soul. Your soul has your body, mind, and heart within it. Your soul is what you are. Your soul is The Soul. Your soul is freedom.
