Liberated Moment

In liberated moment, we know that a new picture of life and duty is already possible; the elements already exist in many minds around you, of a doctrine of life which shall transcend any written record we have. The new statement will comprise the skepticisms as well as the faiths of society, and out of unbeliefs a creed shall be formed. For skepticisms are not gratuitous or lawless, but are limitations of the affirmative statement, and the new philosophy must take them in, and make affirmations outside of them, just as much as it must include the oldest beliefs.

William James in his 1844 essay Experience makes us stop and think about our old beliefs, rituals, and ceremonies. The old belief that we are victims of the Fall of Man is breaking up as we realize the true nature of the self. We are creators of our physical experience. We can flow with the stream of positive energy that vibrates through our cells or we can sit on the bank of that stream and resist that energy.

The conscious mind is aware of the integrity of its identity, and gradually it is pulling the ego out of the antiquated mud of sin and into the fresh clear water of knowing. Our reality is changing because our desire to know the self is changing.

New beliefs change our perception. The ego perceives what the conscious mind believes. New beliefs fit together in patterns. New patterns of thought are exposing distorted rules and controlling doctrines. The slightest change in our perception alters every cell in the body. With each change we sense the growth of our own creativity. We begin to feel the liberated moment in every moment of our self created reality.
