Editor's last word:
This question of how to find freedom in an unfree world has, of course, been the topic of many books, a quest spanning thousands of years. And yet, the answer, if there is an answer for us during our mortal time, must be a simple answer. It will be an answer derived from one’s own inner resources because, surely, it will not be gained from the external violent world. As we meditate, as we “go within,” we find our linkage to universal consciousness, which becomes the end of all of our strivings.
Becoming free, inwardly free, is a powerful concept and will offer benefit in any situation. Think of those who lived during the Roman Empire. There might be soldiers on the street corner, bearing swords to "keep the peace," and yet, in the midst of worldwide totalitarian oppression, one can find freedom, the freedom that is primary.
