What Does Freedom Mean To You?
" Our natural state is to trust the unknown" - Dr Joe Dispenza
This is a question that is rarely asked compared to others about happiness, success and even joy. Yet, it may be one of the most revealing and ground breaking inquiries of your life.
Over a week ago, I came across a surprisingly simple, but also incredibly effective Tedx Talk, which asked this one provocative question of its audience. The young man in his twenties giving the talk was extremely candid in explaining how this word, freedom, had completely transformed his life by refocusing his daily tasks and way of being. Instead of following unconscious conditioned automatic actions created by the modern society we live in, he began reviewing and modifying every choice with this powerful guideline, "Will this action or purchase bring me less freedom or more freedom"?
Sometimes the answers we seek, about finding ways of breaking free from truly self imposed limits, are found in the most unlikely places. Be open to the messages, once you have asked the question with heart felt sincerity.
And don't forget to smile, when you see how simple the way forward can be.
