Who Are The True Teachers of Liberty?


Who are the true teachers of liberty?

The answer is: anyone who makes a conscious and determined choice to live and let live. There are no other qualifications. We teach what we are. If our deeply felt goal is to live our lives in the way we prefer while not interfering with others living their lives as they so choose, we are teaching liberty. If we have no interest in imposing our values or schemes on others and no desire for others to force their beliefs and designs on us, we are teaching liberty.

Live and let live are "two sides of the same coin," so to speak. Once we have made the choice to be responsible for our own lives we cannot logically deny others the same possibility. Any attempt to do so would be a dishonest betrayal of our own value since we cannot with integrity see our interests in this respect as different from anyone else's. A choice to live life according to our own choosing while not in any way trying to limit the same opportunity of others makes us true teachers of liberty.

True teachers of liberty come from anywhere, from every political background or from a life of no political interest whatsoever. They are simply those who have felt their true innermost desire for peace, and awakened to the knowledge that live and let live is the necessary precondition of peace. They have discovered that by experiencing peace in their own dealings with others they teach mankind one of the crucial final lessons mankind is to learn: complete relinquishment of attack. True teachers of liberty do not attack others either in thought, word, or deed; nor through lawful or lawless agents. Thus they are the only teachers who teach peace to the world.

As the world learns to live and let live, fear of others is released everywhere; for who would fear others if mankind has learned not to attack? When fear is released, love rushes in to fill the vacuum; for fear is merely mankind's device for holding back the natural flow of love. Thus true teachers of liberty do not teach with fear, but teach only love.

The call of love and liberty is universal, within every man, woman, and child. It is everywhere a never ending beckoning to be heard by those who are ready and willing to hear. Someday everyone will answer, so a live and let live world is inevitable. Yet eons of time can drag on before that day. So true teachers of liberty ... teachers who truly experience peace and joy and love extending to all without exception ... are needed for mankind to make progress.

"Live and let live happens to be a very meaningful injunction. Twist reality in any way, and you are perceiving destructively. Reality was lost through usurpation, which in turn produced tyranny. I told you you were now restored to your former role in the Plan of Atonement. But you must still choose freely to devote your heritage to the greater Restoration. As long as a single slave remains to walk the earth, your release is not complete." -- Jesus Christ in his revelation for the 21st Century, A Course in Miracles.

Your decision to become a true teacher of liberty is your answer to the highest calling among mankind.



To fully grasp how insane the psychology of modern "liberal progressives" really is, read Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."



"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles

 
"I think of myself as a freedom zealot."

The Libertarian Way: So Much More Than The NAP!

How often do we hear the word "libertarian" being used in contexts relating to politics or some kind of political understanding? Even most dictionary definitions of "libertarian" emphasize political implications.

Yet libertarians will never experience the full personal benefit of their libertarian impulse, and never be completely successful in any political activism they undertake, unless they understand the Libertarian Way is much deeper and more basic than concern with political conditions.

Before there is politics ... before there are relationships ... there is life. When human beings feel their deepest-rooted inner desires (as opposed to addiction to intellectualism for the purpose of avoiding the depths of their being), they sense inside themselves a yearning for the fullness of life to shine forth and be experienced.

"Fullness" is the key. Liberal-progressive dictators will tell you their programs and agendas help people have a better life, but th…

Lifting Others Up To The Libertarian Way

Probably everyone has experienced moments of the fullness of life: the enthralling love that radiates from our heart when it seems we have met our destined soulmate, the joy that explodes out of our being when at the very last split second our team scores the improbable win of the century, the peace that flows from the depths of our soul when the sunrise suddenly bathes our mountain fishing lake and all seems momentarily "on earth as it is in heaven."

The fullness of life is within us, but doesn't too often emanate from most of us because our minds employ many devices for closing down our being. Yet there is a Way which leads us to constant heart and soul opening and nearly uninterrupted experience of the fullness of life. In common street language this Way is often called "live and let live." Although this encompasses all areas of life, when practiced in the context of people's political interactions it is called The Libertarian Way.

Notice that when we a…

Jesus Christ Does Not Favor Taxation

Heading into midterm election season in America we are faced with an illusory alternative: Caesar in Democratic Party clothing, or in some districts Little Caesar in Republican Party clothing. Apparently what makes the illusion saleable is the mistaken idea (used by Caesar as propaganda) that Jesus Christ was a socialist who supported taxation.

Fascists, communists, and progressives (all three branches of socialism), even after all the misery they have created the world over in the last 100 to 150 years, even now still aim a loud speaker toward us blaring the long broken record of their propaganda mantra: “Jesus was a socialist,” by which they try to convince us that Jesus advocated using government force or threat of force to redistribute wealth.

We’ve addressed the "socialist" issue in the past (See Jesus Christ's Love vs. Obama Style Socialism)

Nonetheless, the illusion could not be sold to the public if it were not for modern conservatives insisting that Jesus supported…
