The influence of an evil power that intrudes into our lives, takes control, diminishes our will is and never will be a healthy proposition and our ability to fight against it may seem futile… at first. The call out to all brave souls begins as a whisper, nearly silent in its objections over control for what began as a light in a few hearts, then a neighborhood, in an organized community will now encompass the globe.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
A full onslaught or massive frontal attack of control is rare and poorly conceived in this day and age, yet the influence of an army of repression that has crept into our lives can do as much damage over time. With the tide of blackness, a control based in suppression of hopeful thoughts and a population based in freedom is soon replaced by lost hope, thoughts of betrayal and unfair control. The weak follow in line and ask for assistance, the strong break free and strive to gather their own abundance.
The masses of beings wanting more for themselves and their families will overcome one silent step at a time through the influence of giving, the will to survive with the help of those with a pure spirit and a desire to assist will to rise up and lead. The hearts of those who carry our community in faith, hope and dignity are silenced for a time, the power of neglect and the reign of suppression ensues until there are few who can take it anymore. A rebellion ensues…
“Vital lives are about action. You can’t feel warmth unless you create it, can’t feel delight until you play, can’t know serendipity unless you risk.” ~ Joan Erickson
To be told what to do, where to pray, how to think, for in these revoked freedoms lie dormant for many as some have been burdened by wrong direction. The strong have a tendency for endurance for the will to find peace in their ability to succeed on their own. They need no suggestions, recommendations or directions for a desired outcome, the spirit of those inspired by better times, new beginnings and a better view of tomorrow cannot be suppressed or kept from a doubting public eye.
The hunger for a better life, to live each day without the controls of a regime bent on laying the guidelines of what is their collected assumption of right and wrong will eventually fall. Whether it is the mind of the individual or the collected beliefs of the masses, the will of self controls and of a freedom of thought will eventually overpower those who profess a better way through governance. To control the speed of a people by automatic means will fail once the individual sees himself a free man and not as sheep in being forged into a flock of followers.
“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.” ~ Jim Morrison
I am reminded that we are emerging from the tasks of a broken promise. Having been by a group of believers once separated into many parts, but inspired by a conviction that together there was strength a new promise emerges. The message for mankind was to simply believe and be accepted into a love for a life much stronger and more emotionally stimulated and than a simple existence alone could ever provide. To heed a new message of faith and possibilities fills the heart and soul with new hope.
Proven again and again that a congregation bringing together the faithful, a state of being, shared by an assembly of awake minds and courageous hearts that we as a collective or as individuals filled with a new bravery can be quite powerful indeed.
“Freedom lies in being bold.” ~ Robert Frost
Break free of your limiting beliefs and readily embrace your ability to direct the course of something wonderful, look beyond yourself and witness a vision of life where one is certain that they have nothing to lose. Becoming a free individual to make their own mistakes, to learn personal lessons from trial and error, to forgo the recommendations of others who have special interests or their own agenda of controls is key. To break into a passion of all that is possible should be a little frightening for you are taking control and not being controlled by any outside influences. The safety net is gone…
The activity associated with forging new beliefs and accepting new inclinations of thinking for oneself will be a slow transition, yet well worth the effort. If there is an added complexity of loss or pain associated with this new task, plan for some lonely nights and days walking alone as a true cleansing will demand a bit of scrubbing and polishing. To break free from previous conditions and to enlist your eagerness to build a new foundation of thoughts, of a new mental conviction more suited to our hearts true nature will bring a deeper sigh of relief than following along in a betrayal of spirit ever would.
“People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard
Find your voice and use it, rebel against the conditions that limit your independent soul from living, learning and expanding as a being who has more power than you may now know. A belief in all that is possible begins in a fantasy of all that can be and emerges through daily practice to rise into a new strategy. Work with your talents, believe in yourself and don’t take any more shit from anybody especially those who do not believe in your special powers, in your happiness and your quest to be free.
Listen to that voice inside that professes that “the way is open” and repeat your vows of independence daily to you and only yourself.
