Abstract
Freedom manifests itself in the creative activity of man. Through a creative act, the person expresses itself and thus fulfils its freedom. Life of man can be ruled neither by fear, nor by authoritative pressure. If there is something valuable in life and world, then it may happen only thanks to freedom. The greater freedom is in the process of creating some act, the deeper is penetration of the life of the person. Freedom draws our attention to connection with values which we can accept or refuse. When man chooses good, human freedom grows and becomes a liberating freedom which thanks to its inner power heads to God and improves the person. It depends on man, whether he chooses good or evil, and he is responsible for his choice.
