“The more you love, the more free you will feel.” COL bk.2, 16:II
We do want to feel free, to be free, even in the midst of circumstances that might seem to hem us in. And if we give ourselves up to love, this quotation, from Mary, says that we will feel more free, and the more we love, the more free.
We can soften our hearts even in the midst of a bad day, or turmoil, or suffering, or just pain. We don’t have to let agitation take us over. When we soften our hearts, we are opening up to love, and love will take us back home to God.
It is just that simple. Turn to the love in our hearts, and know that God is acting on our behalf all the time. He would have us taste freedom. And here we are getting the instructions that we need to experience the freedom that we want.
