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 Winning Tao Of Liberty

One who follows the Liberty Way with people, 
does not use weapons to enforce his will. 
Initiating force always leads to pain and suffering. 

With the Liberty Way where armies once gathered,
briars and brambles now blossom. 

A liberty leader exercises his leadership, 
and that is all. 
If he uses force, it is not to seize for himself. 

He skillfully overcomes liberty's enemies, 
but is not proud. 
His progress might be admired, 
yet he is not boastful. 
His work may even win accolades, 
still he does not brag. He fulfills his purpose for liberty, 
because he knows he has no other choice. 

The Liberty Way is fulfilling one's purpose without using force. 
The above is a liberty interpretation of a passage from the ancient spiritual classic Tao Te Ching.  As in all spiritual works which have been venerated worldwide down through the centuries a difference is recognized between (1) the use of force by ego determination for ego purposes, and (2) the use of force in defense of the freedom to act …

How Liberty Lovers Can Assure Winning

The freedom-loving Libertarian Party has been active 46 years, yet manages to gather only a minuscule percentage of the vote. Many would say this is pathetic.

The Republican Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives heroically saves America from a disastrous re-application of the ObamaCare premise that dictatorship of people's health insurance is government's business ... a rescue effort for which they should be presenting themselves as national champions. Instead they allow themselves to be portrayed as villains. Maybe not pathetic, but a mixed bag.

It's not that freedom is no longer considered a value among Americans. It's that modern freedom lovers haven't yet learned how to win fully, completely, without limitation. Liberty lovers achieve only partial victories because we do not have a winning mindset.

To achieve complete and lasting victory liberty lovers need to transform their minds and think like winners.

To do this we must first train ourselves to …

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…
