Do you want freedom of the body or of the mind?
For both you cannot have.
Which do you value?
Which is your goal?
For one you see as means; the other, end.
Means serve the end, and as the end is reached, the value of the means decreases, eclipsed entirely when they are recognized as functionless.
No one but yearns for freedom and tries to find it.
Yet he will seek for it where he believes it is and can be found.
Where freedom of the body has been chosen, the mind is used as means whose value lies in its ability to contrive ways to achieve the body’s freedom.
Yet freedom of the body has no meaning, and so the mind is dedicated to serve illusions.
The Holy Spirit waits in gentle patience, as certain of the outcome as He is sure of His Creator’s love.
He knows this mad decision was made by one as dear to His Creator as love is to itself.
Be not disturbed at all to think how He can change the role of means and end so easily in what God loves and would have free forever.
But be you rather grateful that you can be the means to serve His end.
This is the only service which leads to freedom.
To serve this end, the body must be perceived as sinless because the goal is sinlessness.
The lack of contradiction makes the shift easy from hate to gratitude before forgiving eyes.
