The Courage to Be Free

QUESTION
Guy, the title of your new book, The Courage to Be Free, raises an immediate question. Why does it take courage to be free?

ANSWER
The need to let go of something or someone would never even occur to us were it not for the fact that some part of us is clinging to it with both hands! It takes courage to be free because it isn’t the person, possession, or situation, that must be released, but rather it’s our identification with that condition that holds us captive. Self-liberation means just that: liberation from the level of self that knows itself only through whatever it first becomes identified with, then attached to, and finally dependent upon. You can’t separate this kind of false dependency from the fear it creates when the conditions that created it finally fall apart… which they always will. Our original fearless self is that part of us that knows, without having to think about it, that whatever happens to us in life, no matter what its nature seems to be, happens to us for the good of us. 
The Courage to Be Free will be released worldwide on Wednesday, September 8th. Stay tuned!
