Today is the 4th of July. I woke with head buzzing…. (which is usually the case, truth be told) …. AND full of gratitude.
Entrepreneurs talk a lot about freedom. It’s one of the reasons why we do what we do.
I used to think that freedom was about having “a ton” (amount non-descript) of money to “do anything I want, when I want.”
These past five years have taught me that it’s about soooo much more than that.
True freedom, I believe, is freedom of consciousness – especially the ability to direct and consciously create one’s perception.
To break free from conditions and patterns – which in practice is about catching yourself in it, and then using strategies to step out of it again. (Plus all that yummy brain re-wiring, right Scott? 😉 )
All of us are born with a Creative Spirit – the part that seeks full expression, that drives us to grow, expand, create, be our full selves. This is the part that drives Desire.
When we trust that part, listen to it and follow it, in partnership with the Divine, we truly can be, do or have whatever that true Desire is. (True Desire, not egoic desire – and yes, sometimes true Desire does mean “a mansion und a yacht” ;))
It’s part of the human experience to have that part of us covered up, blocked, clamped down. Our opportunity is to remove all those barriers. This is the work of magic.
What do we need to do that? Consciousness, the willingness to make new choices, and a lot of practice.
Today, I’m celebrating all the teachers who have guided me on this journey up until this point in this process for myself. Because while I have a long way to go before I attain my Desired level of mastery with this, I’m a hell of a lot better at it than I ever was, and I have the blessings to prove it.
May the Goddess grant the awareness of the power of choice to all those who do not yet have it.
