Personal Freedom

I want freedom for the full expression of my personality.

Mahatma Gandhi

What is that innate desire to express ourselves freely and confidently, to be vibrant and purposeful to all of mankind?  I think that may be the personal freedom that we all seek.  Achieving it seems to be difficult at times.  We see our dreams, our desires, we know that inner pulling toward things that only we can see in a unique way, yet something holds us back.  We so easily get caught up in the opinions of others that we lose ourselves.  We can sit and complain and tell how things should be, yet cannot seem to change ourselves.  In essence we lose out on our own greatness because of restrictions from others, either perceived or real.  But do we need to live this way?  Is this our essence?

When we choose a goal or a project to bring about in the world we unleash our own vitality, our excitement and passion come to life.  We feel liberated and we instantly know that this is something that feels right for us.  So often fears of others’ opinions limit our confidence and we simply comply and become a day-to-day robot feeling unhappy and unfulfilled.  We may be going through the motions but quickly we find it is difficult to keep going.  Drudging from one task to another.  It doesn’t have to be that way however, we can recognize the domination that living under others’ expectations and opinions have on our own gifts to life here on the planet.

When I experience Personal Freedom I feel inspired, dedicated, free, and in Flow with my life sync.  When you plug you phone into your PC at home or at work, it syncs the calendar and other events to your phone making sure that everything is in alignment.  When we begin to recognize the joy of being ourselves, we feel a sense of freedom that says we can do this, that we are able to live by our own wit and imagination.  It is then that we truly begin to discover the contributions that we can make to the world that are innately ours and no one else’s.

Think about when you felt really good, happy without any anxiety.  How long ago was it?  You can go back to being yourself and when you do, you will feel an abundance that feels like you’re on a mission.  That mission is you, and only you can complete it, in your way, with your thoughts, your energy, your mistakes, your missteps, your successes sweetly given.  Today I want to encourage you to look at some of the social repressions in your life.  Look at work, at home, in your relationships, friendships, social media outlets, all of them, and begin to weed the garden.  Make some changes by telling others that you need to be you, that you need room to move forward freely in your life.  Here is what I know, By doing this, you will find your full personality and the joy it brings to your life.

Yours for a better life,

Rich
