What does that even mean? Is this a spiritual thing or business buzz word or some wonky term??
Friends I am talking about what makes you feel FREE and ALIVE while also in the right zone! Maybe it’s your Spirit, your Higher Power, a night away from the kids, a golf game with buddies, or perhaps your selfish agenda, late night parties, or even a vacation, or maybe a workout, some yoga or jogging- or physical intimacy with your spouse – or walking naked in your house (or backyard, or front yard), or having a fat bank account- or all, or portion, of the above?
One feeling I know we all like is our LIBERTY and FREEDOM. So does that mean we do as we chose, when we want, how we want, what we want? I have tried that- it did not work well for me. Maybe if you are single, no kids, no real responsibilities, live on an island sipping Corona’s and are “tranquillo”… you can still milk the ultra selfish lifestyle…but here is the gist!
I believe the answer is in doing “Freedom by Following” the best man the world has ever known, Jesus Christ. But lets just say, YOUR preferred good, moral and noble set of culture, beliefs, practices, religion, feelings and/or lifestyle. The key for me is to make sure I FOLLOW truth and practices that are healthy, impact people and causes positively, are selfless, and consistent. And even more radical,… the right freedom could be hidden in your HEART, with built up hedges in conviction and trust – and enduring love, …and not just our list of superficial works that make us “feel good”.
I have found real genuine authentic Freedom, the kind that feels right, mostly occurs knowing your are in the right place, then certain right time events happen – so then you smile, give thanks and do your best in obeying, acknowledging, accepting and being at peace in that abiding love you feel. Are you following freedom – or are you a Freedom Follower?
