Is freedom really a gift? If so who gives it away?What makes a person free?
As I wisely pondered on these questions; I realized that no matter the situation I AM the one who can ultimately decide if I am free or not matter the circumstance. You might ask at this point; “what about the slave? What about he Scottish who fought to reclaim their freedom from England? My guess is that freedom is our birth right, it is “who we are;” free begins, it is at the core of our spirits and runs through our veins, it is at the core of our being and we will do everything in our power to protect our freedom. As far as I remember, my soul always rebelled against every act and attempt to rob me of my freedom as a person and as a woman.
Every time someone tried to control me, “enchain me;” it triggered an immediate response and I refused to surrender. When I did surrender, against my will with my abusers and with people at places where I used to work; it was as if my soul was on fire and was wounded. We might be free living in a free country however some of us create our “own mind prison” to hide from who we truly are, to hide from our greatness, from our divine brilliance and birth right. This is by far the worst “prison” there is,as the one who locked himself or herself out, is the one who shall free himself or herself.
Why am I telling you this?
I want you to ask yourself: Am I a free man or woman? Really take your time on this and mediate to receive your answer if you need to.If you are like most people, you will answer yes automatically as you will tell yourself that you are not in jail. The truth is that your beautiful mind is either your ally or your worst enemy and for all you know it is keeping you in prison and locked up without you even knowing it. How does that happen? Well, think about how the mind works; your conscious and thinking mind has the ability to reason, accept and reject every information presented to it.
How do you know if your mind is your ally or your enemy? It is very simple; by their fruits you shall know them said Jesus, your results are your fruits. Look at your current results in your relationships, your bank account; your health; your spiritual life and every area of your life. The results speak for themselves. If you absolutely love your life and where you are in your life’s journey in every way, shape or form; congratulations. You can stop reading if you wish. 99% of the time people don’t even know that they are in “prison”; how do you free yourself from something you are not aware of?
If not; keep reading.
