Call to freedom


When you are interiorly free 
you call others to freedom, 
whether you know it or not.  
Freedom attracts wherever it appears.  
A free man or a free woman 
creates a space where others feel safe 
and want to dwell.  
Our world is so full of conditions, 
demands, requirements, and obligations 
that we often wonder what is expected of us.  
But when we meet a truly free person, 
there are no expectations, 
only an invitation to reach into ourselves 
and discover there our own freedom.

Where true inner freedom is, there is God.  
And where God is, there we want to be.
Henri Nouwen
