Do you remember all those moments when you realize that you were able to do something, but your doubts or fears stop you to do it? Or maybe seeing things so challenging and later realized that you just missed your opportunity? Sadly we wait to realize later that the only walls that existed were the ones that were made by us and only for us.
Let’s be honest here! freedom comes from us and there is nobody that can give you the freedom and neither take it away from you.
Reviewing Wikipedia dictionary, Freedom, generally, is having the ability to act or change without constraint. Something is "free" if it can change easily and is not constrained in its present state.
Let’s review the meaning. If freedom is the ability to act, well, unless we are tied up, we are able to act, think, and love if we want to. We are always in a constant change and we are the creators of our present moment. So yes, we are able to be free. I wonder, why do we have to look for freedom outside if it’s inside of us? Maybe we can try just to surrender the control and live free.
Freedom can start from listening to the wind, walking barefoot outside in the grass, being in nature, making a picture, singing out-loud, enjoying a meal, or opening the windows and breathing a new day.
If you don’t feel free right now, imagine or try walking barefoot in the beach, feel the sand between your toes while the water gently touches your skin and the wind whispers to you. Do you feel obliged by the ocean to stand up in a certain way or forced to please anybody?
Nature is always teaching us that the world is our free space to walk or fly if we want to or decide for our own good. Freedom is in us and is a decision we take to feel.
If you find yourself questioning your freedom, ask yourself if you’re really not free to choose or if it’s your decision not to be free?
Wake up from your resting dreams and open your eyes to the immense possibilities in front of you to create and make changes with love.
That the light in me, recognizes the light in you,
