Freedom IS Free

4 Jul

Spoiler Alert: This post goes against the so-called “norm” and prevailing (up until now) way of thinking on our planet. It may ruffle some feathers. And you know what? I’m Good/God with that. 🙂

Have you ever heard the quote “freedom isn’t free”?

I’m here to tell you: Freedom IS Free!

Guess what? IT IS.

Guess what else? True Freedom has nothing to do with the government, nations, fights, wars, defending, power, control, battles, guns, tanks, bombs or “stylish” camouflage attire. Neither does it have anything to do with red, white or blue, flags or the 4th of July.

True Freedom has EVERYTHING to do with you. With me. With us. With each of our individual and volitional CHOICE to choose Freedom as a way of BEING. As an unwavering Reality dependent on no one else but ourSelves.

It has everything to do with Empowerment. Forgiveness. Detachment. Aloha (Love). Acceptance. Grace. Presence. And Vigilance – Eternal Vigilance, as my Teacher Dr. Roger B. Lane appropriately calls it.

See, no matter what the body your Soul happens to be wearing looks like, feels like, seems like, smells like, talks like, works like or thinks like – In any moment you’re Free to Choose into the Freedom that’s always available or to choose into a state of being “enslaved”.

I suppose redefining “Freedom” is in order. Ultimate Freedom is not about outer circumstances, a declaration of independence or the ability to accumulate things materially (though there’s nothing wrong with having and enjoying things and… kudos to the “founding fathers”).

True Freedom is Being Free no matter what. Where we’re attachment-free, exercising our ability to be in the world but not of it. Where we’re choosing to let go of any drama and the perpetuation of millennia of struggle, suffering, story and pain.

And hey, by no means am I discounting the past, tradition, history, herstory, family, memory or your story by sharing the simple Truth above.

What I AM suggesting is that none of this has power “over” you or can take away the fact that you have Free Will on your side. As you Choose to Empower your Inner Environment you may notice your outer environment shifts to support that.


Only you hold the key to Free yourSelf from attachment to anything past, present or future.

In fact, the things that we’ve allowed to enslave us (in a nutshell, anything that isn’t of God/Source/Spirit) offer the greatest opportunity for us to move into and Choose Freedom – moment-to-moment.

And you may have to make that choice 10 times. 100 times. 1000 times. Or more. But you know what? You’re Worth it. I’m Worth it. The Whole of Humanity is Worth it.

“Yeah”, I can hear someone say, “but what about the holocaust, cancer, drugs, wars, rape, injustice, starvation, pollution, disaster, etc.? These are horrible things that are so unfair…”

To this I say let go of seeing them as fair or unfair. Right or wrong. This or that. Us vs. them.

By no means am I suggesting you like “fucked-up shit” or agree with any of the multitudes of negativity here on the planet.

Accept. Forgive. Transcend. Take note of the story of Victor Frankl. And the story of Kimmie Weeks (whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting).

With all the freed up energy that Forgiveness provides you may find yourSelf choosing (from a neutral place of inspired action) to assist others with Freeing themSelves, helping to improve their conditions, speaking and advocating for positive alternatives or even starting a business based on filling a need you’ve identified.

A Place of Forgiveness is a Place of Power
Now is the time, this is the hour
Never too late to enter Blessed States
The Choice is Yours, Choose into Grace

Come into Forgiveness, Spirit as Your Witness
Release, Surrender negativity

Give it all up and Set yourSelf Free
Tell yourSelf it’s OK to Let it Go
Judgements drift away and now you know
Yes You’re OK you’ve entered the Flow

Come into Forgiveness, Spirit as Your Witness
Release, Surrender negativity
