The Cost of Freedom

As we continue to discuss what it means to be free. Look at what it looks like to be limited and unlimited. Living free but limited is just like the animals in the zoo. You think you can do what you want but it’s all in the confinement of what others allow. That’s we have laws in place. These laws are good because it keeps order. Then there are rules which we place on ourselves and others. These rules like one type of person can’t do this or that. Or rules like if you are born this race, economic level, you can’t live this or that type of life. These type of rules are unnecessary and their only purpose is to control others. So in this case maybe the price for freedom is giving up the fear in us that causes us to place rules ( or stereotypes) on others. True freedom starts within the mind.

Freedom Affirmations: I am free to feel loved and to love. I am free to have a joyful life. I am free to feel safe wherever I am. I am free to be wealthy, healthy, whole, and complete. I am free to love myself unconditionally. My mind is free. ALL IS WELL IN MY MIND. ALL IS WELL IN MY LIFE. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
