1. The power or right to act, speak or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.


And when I fought for truth, I found truth. When I fought for pain, I found pain. When I fought for belief, I found belief. When I fought for freedom, I found freedom.


We preach our messages, our truths, our stories. We offer advice, in the dark of the night. We think we know right from wrong. We think we know best. We think our hardships, are harder; our undoings, more undone.

But we only know what is right – for us. We only know our own experience, our own journey.

Where you find freedom, I may not find freedom. Where I find freedom, you may not find freedom.

We try and convince people that our light shines brightest, that our path is more valid and our truth, more true. Because this is all our own experience affords us…

And we can offer opportunities – out of love – but we should not force another to see the world through our eyes, believe our beliefs, hear our voice, or do what we want them to do.

(Even when we think our way might save them ~ we cannot save them).

Real love is not conditional. It does not rise and fall in agreement. It does not bind, or judge. It is intertwined, but soaring. It transcends the room. It does not look in dark corners, for half-truths or ulterior motives. It does not cast doubt, or seedy stares. It stands proud and enmeshes itself with truth, beauty and light. It enriches, nourishes and breeds happiness. Real love is freedom.

So we should not take the power or right of another to act, speak or think as they want… especially not the one we say we love. And we should not restrain or hinder ourselves, from the right or power to act, speak and think as we wish… especially not our true self.


About a lifetime of lessons

Inspired by life. I love challenges and new experiences. On the brink of an adventure to discover, and rediscover... In the year of my thirtieth birthday I decided to throw in my job, put my money on red and take the gamble of a lifetime... a one way ticket... This blog documents my journey. Feel free to visit whenever you like, comment and follow my travels here :) View all posts by a lifetime of lessons
