There is a lot to be done here before we can be said to have achieved true freedom. True freedom is the ability to hold the self and all others in the deepest of unconditional love and positive regard. When we truly love and respect the self, we will find ourselves able to act and react lovingly toward others and our world. Then, we will have begun to experience freedom, the freedom that comes from loving. True love, unconditional positive regard, has the power to set our hearts and our lives free.
