Freedom Means. . . .

Freedom Means. . . .

Freedom, to me, means being able to be who we are wherever we are, no matter what. Freedom is not having to react whenever one of our old, tired and predictable buttons gets pushed and we feel attacked, devalued or unappreciated, and the fear of survival, rejection or abandonment gets triggered. Freedom means that our love of self and sense of worth do not depend on anyone or anything external.
Freedom means that we know–we really know–that we are so much greater than our pasts wounds and our conditioning, greater than our habituated tendencies and inherited and unexamined beliefs, greater than our thoughts and emotions, greater than our tired, predictable and boring emotional survival patterns, greater than our brain chemistry, greater than our addictions and our DNA.
Freedom is about always bringing choice back into the equation, no matter what curve balls life throws our way. How do I want to be now in response to this situation?
Christian de la Huerta, Soulful Power
