Live Free or Die!

Posted: February 27, 2011 in Uncategorized
 “Those who worship God for the hope of gaining- they’re not real worshippers- they’re merchants.  Those who worship God out of fear (of punishment)- they’re slaves. And those who worship God to be greatful to their Creator, they are the FREE people, and their worship is a real one.” -Imam Hussain (peace be upon him)       [Biharul Anwar, Vol. 78, pg. 117]  
“Live Free or Die” was General John Stark’s motto from the original American Revolution. Sure enough, the worth of ‘freedom’ seems self-evident, and you’ve been exposed to it as a sacred tenant of American political philosophy (religion) your entire life, but you know there’s something wrong- you may not be able to explain it- but you can feel it. It’s that conviction that has brought you here looking for answers . . . You know what we’re talking about- don’t you? Others know there’s something wrong too, but until they are ready to free their mind to other possibilities they’ll remain so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system that binds them, that they will fight to protect it. This is your chance. Turn back and you can continue with your normal life and believe whatever you want to . . . but to confront the fear of change, risk leaving what you know for a greater life, and having the boldness to seek true freedom is a choice that can only be made by you. So are you going to get busy living, or get busy dying?
