Freedom is never free
I believe that freedom is the ability to make decisions. When we are not allowed to make our own decisions, we are not free.
Freedom, as I see it, means that I get to decide for myself. Freedom, if it were real, would mean that nobody has higher authority over what decisions I make. Freedom would mean that nobody gets decide for me what I choose to do, or to think, or to believe is true.
Freedom would mean that everyone, each individual person, deserves the same respect to make their own choices for themselves. I do believe in our ability to be free. Not only that, but I see it as an essential need, this human instinct to be free.
I believe in freedom; physical, as well as freedom of choice, of speech, of feeling, of expression, of opinion; freedom to be who you are, to have your life.
Freedom is important to me because once I did not have it; and because of that, I was not able to be the person I actually am. Though I realize now that person was in me along. I was not able to discover and explore this inner person until I got my freedom.
I speak only for myself, from my heart. I believe in freedom. I believe it can really work; people can be free if they so choose to be. It is up to each individual person to make that decision; others cannot make it for them. This is my big problem with the world we live in today.
Our decisions are all pre-made by those in control. We are not granted independence, but sometimes the illusion of a choice is offered us. That makes people feel a little better and helps them sleep at night. I feel this current situation is unacceptable! I don’t want the illusion of choices between options, which represent false distinctions and are really all the same.
“You can be anything you want to be
Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be
Be free with your tempo, be free be free
Surrender your ego – be free, be free to yourself ’’
