I dare say, freedom comes from inside your mind.
It can mean sensitivity to the air, the atmosphere, to the light indoors and out, to color and design right in front of your face. Ooya.
If you are analytical, it means to stop the inner dialog of judgement, categorization and classification. We do not need to measure up.
If there is a need to explain your thoughts and feelings to others, and you don’t feel like getting into it, one or two words, a simple explanation will be fine. Since it is nearly impossible for them to fully understand, we may as well give-up on being understood to that degree and enjoy that freedom.
True Freedom is many things.
It is an inner dialog which works as a shield between what you are seeing and hearing in the outer world. Only you can know what it means to you in your inner world.
It means not needing to feel guilty when people are blaming you. Because they are not recognizing and owning their own feelings, they push the responsibility for their feeling onto you in the form of blame. They are reaching out to you because you are part of their circle, their circle of love. Keep that in mind.
Freedom means not being sure you fit into what society says you should be . . . be doing.
It means finding a path, not necessarily of least resistance, not laid out by anyone else.
It means being alert and aware of messages coming to you to move in a certain direction. And not being invested in where that direction is leading, because it may not follow a logical path. Trusting yourself.
It means remembering the child-like wonder you had as a child, before you were asked to conform. The feeling that flushes your face, creates excitement, and prompts you to straighten your spine and take a big deep breath.
It’s you cruising on a Sunday afternoon and feelin’ good.
