It is true to live in the USA we have more freedom than many in the world. Our main freedom from near or far is the freedom to be ourselves. This is an inside job that begins with us alone. It is for us to live our truth, but first to find out what that is.
We are influenced since before birth to live a life to please or fit in with others. Getting approval and being safe are our most important survival tools as we burst into this new territory as human on earth with parents, people and place to adapt to.
Taught to look outside in the mirror of other to find self, we never have direct experience and perspective. In many religions or cultures we are not taught self-knowledge and reflection, and if we are there are rules and expectations or a lens to see through to fit in or be accepted as correct.
To discover self is a radical act of love for each one of us. It is THE spiritual journey. Inside us is all of the mystery and magic of the divine to discover. A sinner to one may be a savior to another. The innocence of a child is living with clear open vision, joy and acceptance with no rules or expectations.
To grow into self-mastery is to reclaim this wisdom and way of living in the world just by being and to release prior training and wounding in order to accomplish this. Unlearning and remembering our nature, is a process worth the ongoing adventure.
Making peace inside with all that has gone on before and our part in it is important to accept and learn from.
Being human on this planet has not been free and it is for us to claim our freedom to be and live it with love.
Enjoy the Journey,
Be The Medicine, Live the Power of You!
