I am writing a sentence which says
We followed a large set of Buddhist rule, but we have freedom inside which is reflected in that we always reach out to give and help others.
I'm trying to make in that means by the fact that, but by the fact that is too long and I want to be concise.
This sentence sounds a bit strange to me. Is that the correct word choice in this context? Can I improve the sentence to make it sound more natural?
