Of course this is partially because I like to hear myself talk, but also because I think it will help our understanding go a bit deeper. Our first task is to understand freedom. Westerners, especially Amer- icans, have some strong notions about freedom. We celebrate it every July. We staunchly defend our individual freedoms. Yet, we must see that this freedom is worldly, personal and political. Our cultural freedoms mostly deal with outside forces and things. Our enemies to freedom are other people and situations that we don't like. The ancient Church understood that the enemies to freedom were in our hearts. Our self-centered passions and desires, (our ego and pride) are the biggest obstacles to our freedom. How can you tell if you are free? Look at yourself, honestly. How often are you offended? The free person cannot be offended. To reach this point, the ego must be dealt with and put to death. God must reign in the soul. A word of caution here though, the best way the ego can hide and stay in control is religion. You know how it goes, "I know the Bible. I'm on the parish council, I went to six retreats last year, I pray an hour every day, I pray in tongues, I'm saved, or I go to Mass every day of the week." This isn't love of Jesus, but love of self. The ego is still is charge. We Christians seem to blame and criticize as much as anyone. We project our evil and sin onto other groups and call them evil. Healthy religion doesn't play that game. Jesus doesn't play that game. If the Western Church is anemic and powerless, it is because we have tried to play this game instead of dealing with the ego. Jesus isn't really in charge. He is the mascot we roll out on Sunday so we can play the games ego and religion. We see things not as they are, but as we are. If we are not free, we will see all kinds of evils to condemn. A person becomes free by choosing a path of healing, transformation and surrender. It is the free person who sees goodness and God in all things. We must surrender our whole per- son and our whole lives to Christ. Anything less than everything will not make us whole and holy. The saints teach that when we have problems with others, the prob- lem really lies within ourselves. The good or bad that happens to us have a single purpose: to awake us to the reality of God and help us on the ~, path to union with Him. But there is no union without surrender. Sur- ~ render is scary. It means to give up control. It means climbing up on the cross every day. When we surrender deeply, hand our whole lives over to Jesus every day, we will come to experience freedom. The saints of the Eastern Church say that a person is free when they can accept every person and every situation without upsetting their peace. Many of them even had love for the demons, for they saw them not as evil, but as suffering and in need of healing. This is much like Julian of Norwich when she said, "God sees sin as pain in us." So, should we all feel bad about this and guilt ourselves into surren- der? Guilt and shame won't do it. We must love our way through. Love doesn t reject or condemn. When you see your sin, your anger, your self- centeredness, take them to prayer. Wrestle with them. Surrender and re- ~ce!
