When I think about the freedom I want most for myself and for you…
it's freedom from suffering.
Suffering from thoughts that make us feel like we’re somehow not enough, or that there isn’t enough or that any good measure of success starts and ends with our financial statements.
Suffering from ideas that the weight of the world, family or business rests solely on our shoulders.
Suffering because a mindset of productivity and responsibility without balance, leads to results of disconnection and overwhelm.
Suffering because we know that inequities of freedom for “some” are at the cost of freedom for all and sometimes we feel powerless to affect change- even in ourselves.
As we enter a weekend intended to celebrate America’s independence and freedom, I invite us to consider if our freedom is in balance or if we are shackled to ideas or ideals that actually create less freedom in our lives or the lives of others.
If liberty and justice for all was a daily intention, what would that look like in your neck of the woods?
Just for today and for tomorrow.
