WHAT'S THIS?

A dictionary of terms as they are used and redefined by Elias


 
 

Freedom

Elias connects freedom with the ability to express choice.

Session #1181:

I may define freedom as the recognition and implementation of choice.

Session #1398:

ELIAS: Freedom is expressed in recognizing what your truths are and daring to expand your awareness and risk that you are not right Ė but you are also not wrong. They are merely your truths, and it is unnecessary to compare or to convince, for in both you discount yourselves and you discount the other individual also.

Session #1464:

ELIAS: I may express to you, it is not necessarily a matter of incorporating an issue in association with this subject, but rather a presentment to yourself of allowing yourself to choose in the moment and to genuinely listen to yourself in what you want in the moment, and that you may choose to be engaging a direction and you may also change that direction. You are not locked into any position. You may allow yourself to relax in your own choices, and it is not an absolute and it is not stone. You may in one moment want to be involving yourself in this activity, and in another moment you may not want to be involving yourself in the activity. It is merely a presentment to yourself of change and that you are not locked into any direction absolutely. It is choice.

FRANK: Is the reason itís all sort of ambiguous right now that I just donít know what I want to do?

ELIAS: Yes, and you are projecting to the future. Rather than allowing yourself to choose in the moment, you are projecting to your next year. As the season approaches and as you are actually involving yourself in that action, you may choose whether you wish to be incorporating that action or not ó but you are not engaging it now.

FRANK: But I have to decide if Iím going to do it for next year. In other words, if I say right now yes, Iím going to do this, then for the next year I do it.

ELIAS: Or that is your pattern ó but it is not an absolute. That is what I am expressing to you.

FRANK: I understand, sort of.

ELIAS: (Chuckles) This is a strongly expressed belief in commitment and follow-through. But that is not an absolute, and you may choose in the moment rather than choosing in a moment in which that is not occurring.

FRANK: Yes, that is a strongly held belief. But the alternatives are liberating.

ELIAS: You are quite correct!

FRANK: You donít have to worry about anything else ó whatever I want to do now, I do it now.

ELIAS: Correct, and I may express to you, that action is quite efficient. It is merely unfamiliar.

FRANK: We talked about this last time, about how I wanted to go and play baseball in this tournament…

ELIAS: Correct.

FRANK: …and then I decided not to. Actually, since we last talked, another opportunity came up and I just decided to do it! Right now Iím pretty comfortable with that; Iím pretty happy I did it.

ELIAS: It is a matter of allowing yourself to choose in the moment and to listen to yourself and to know that regardless of what choice you generate in any moment, you also incorporate the freedom to change.

Session #1152:

ELIAS: The FREEDOM that is expressed in accomplishment is allowing yourself to widen your awareness, recognize your beliefs, and intentionally objectively choose which beliefs you shall express, which beliefs are in alignment with your preferences, and therefore express those which shall influence your perception and therefore create an actual physical reality.
