Freedom and Self-Expression

“Most of us think that freedom means to keep our options open, stay loose and available, and often that strategy does give you a little space temporarily. Eventually, though, keeping your options endlessly open becomes its own prison. You can never choose…..You can never really discover you destiny because you are afraid to commit fully.

If you look back on the experience of freedom in your life chances are that it wasn’t when you were measuring the options against one another, or making sure you weren’t getting stuck with a decision. It was when you were fully expressed, playing full out. It was when you chose fully and completely, when you knew you were in the place you were meant to be in, when perhaps you felt a sense of destiny. That’s when we’re free and self-expressed, and joyful or at peace with circumstances – when we choose them. ”

  1. Its like the distinction of (which context is determining how you & i show up?). You either take life by the horns & walk into creation or crawl on the walls of life with fear of falling down….everyone gets to choose. When you stay loose…..you live from the context of what is init for me?….something better is just around the corner….wait…be in a search mode…always needy,wanting to be filled up Vis-a-vis ……Living from the context….i am a cause in this relationship….how can i serve…..how can our unconditional love blossom for both our highest good & express the same by action moment to moment.
