What is freedom? Nelson Mandela—when he got out of 27 years in prison and stood up in front of the newly remade nation of South Africa with such magnanimity, graciousness, and wisdom he spoke of freedom and said: “You are not yet free, you merely have the freedom to be free.” No matter what the situation, we are offered the freedom to choose our highest intention, to choose to be free. When we understand intention, we are given the opportunity to set the compass of our heart. This is what will transform our world.
