You're more free than you think

It seems everyone is looking to be free. But do we really know what it is? Free with time. Free from judgements. Free from expectations. Free to speak. Free to act. Free to be whoever you want to be. Have you defined your own longing? 

What if you are more free than you think? What are the cages you've built around yourself? Are they really real? 

I think we sometimes feel caged when we're not. We use all the should's and have to's as excuses to hide from our own freedom. The change of perspective to need and want can give you the freedom you're seeking. You're responsible for your own life and your choices. This also gives you permission to let go of some of the things you feel are keeping you chained. That is if you want or need it, not because I say so. 

The lack of freedom we sense in our life is more something we keep affirming than any object reality. 

I've also been thinking a lot about whether total freedom is really something to strive for and something that really feels free, but more on that in another post. For now, reflect on what freedom means to you. And then, start affirming more of it in your own life. 

With all my love,


Religion or nothing at all?

What do you believe? Sometimes I hear people talking as if there where only two options, either you join one religion and buy everything linked to it, or you don't believe at all. If those where the only two options, I would reluctantly join one of the major religions. But, it's not the only choices you have. I say choice because I truly believe it's a choice we make, cultivate everyday over time, and then, we realize we've built the trust we need to believe. 

The choice you always have is spirituality. No strings attached. A spirituality where you find the answers and guidance inside, not externally. There are plenty of knowledge, insight, inspiration and experience to get from others on the subject, but ultimately, your spirituality is your own. 

I believe religion steams from the same source as everything else, but it's formed by people who wanted a manual for life and by power structures that wanted to control. It's all the same. What if you where allowed to form your own spirituality, by listening in and by leaning to forums and conversations where you can ask the tough questions and get others perspective to inform and inspire you? What if you are always carried through life? What if there's a power greater, that give you all the power you need? 

With all my love,
