The Secret of Flying Free – Daily Quote

How many times have you heard someone lament they just want to be free? What does that mean to you? Is it the ability to do whatever you what whenever you wish? The ability to act or change without constraint. The reality is so much more. Everything we say and do has consequences. What happens rests on our shoulders and if there is blame to be cast, we must blame ourselves.

There is a secret to attaining the freedom you seek, it comes when you first take responsibility and hold yourself accountable to the highest standard. Freedom and responsibility are the embodiment of inseparable and contradictory opposites. They are Yin and Yang, darkness and light, young and old. Holding one requires that you maintain a balance with the other.  To be free, we must also be in control. Freedom and responsibility are not granted by the powers that be. They are taken. We must use them with virtue, knowledge, and compassion. If we are lucky, those qualities transform into wisdom and we can truly fly.

What will you do with your freedom?

    I never really think about being free, but I do agree that to achieve whatever bliss we seek, we need to carve our own paths to get there.
