Security or Freedom?

As personalities we humans are often cowards (myself included).
The reason I say this is that the most of the energy that drives our everyday choices is fear. We fear what our fellow humans will think or do if we fail to be ‘acceptable’.
This is not a new thing. For thousands of years we have been indoctrinated to behave like and be like the others in our society.
Most of you who read this will recognise that in certain areas you are a bit different from the rest of the population. So you have done some self inquiry which has led you to make some adjustments to your way of living your life. But we still live in houses, wear clothes, drive cars and shop at the supermarket.
When you walk through the supermarket, how often have you been wondering why unhealthy food is cheaper that the healthy stuff. Why is Coca-cola cheaper than bottled water? And why do we buy bottled water?
Why is there blue colour in my shaving cream? And wtf is emulsifier, stabiliser, natural colour and flavor enhancer?
Very soon I will not be allowed to eat a carrot from my own garden, unless it has been disinfected with chlorine!
Welcome to the System.
The System is there to protect us… to make us feel secure. Unfortunately some beings hi-jacked this system and they are now using it to control us.
But that is really another story. Let us stay with this ‘feeling secure’ thing.
Even if the System was never hi-jacked it is still a bunch of ethical, moral and behavioural rules and patterns that we must follow in order to feel secure and accepted. In every society we have got rules for just about everything which really means that if we believe that we are free, then we are kidding ourselves. Authority rules.
Parents have authority over their children, teachers over pupils, older kids over younger (or weaker) kids, employers over employees, Kings/Queens, Popes, Presidents and other people of status rule over ordinary citizens. There are many other examples like gender, intelligence, physical strength etc that determines who has got authority over who. All in the name of keeping order in the System, so we can feel secure.
BUT!
It is costing us our freedom… the freedom in every second to think and act as true individuals. Because every time a spontaneous idea shows up (they are becoming increasingly rare these days) we have to consider all the rules, norms and laws (spoken and unspoken) that has been made to protect the System (so it can provide security).

Which leads us to the other word in the heading, ‘Freedom’.
Freedom is only freedom if it is free!
Normally ‘freedom’ is a word that is used a lot by those who rule the system.
But most of us would probably be able to agree that the ‘freedom’ they talk about is not really freedom at all.
True freedom is the stepping outside everything that we think we know about reality, and then re-examine this moment.
This re-examining has to be done with total openness, innocence and a certain amount of naivity so we can allow this moment to present itself as it really is… and not the way we want it to be. Because we have been so indoctrinated we have made belief systems (rules) that we find it very difficult to be free from. These belief systems colour the way we perceive reality.
If we try to be free, but still keep ‘our way’ of seeing reality, then we are caught up in a little bubble that distorts our view.
You may believe that your view is more real than most other people’s, but that is not really the point. The point is that Any preconceived idea will apply ‘authority’ onto reality and thereby force it into the narrow band of your pre-determined belief system.
So, if it is freedom that you want, (and as mentioned in the beginning ‘we humans are a bunch of cowards’) then you will have to lay down your beliefs and enter reality with an open mind.
So, what IS this reality then?
Well I can’t tell you, because then I become this authority that we are trying so hard to get rid of.
What I CAN tell you is that it is not about anybody else (no Prime Ministers or Presidents, no Masters, angels, God or goddesses, no extra terrestrials, gurus, teachings or whatsimacallits).

It is all about you.

Kia Kaha

Good luck

Free Will

On this planet we have been granted free will.

It is an experiment that started several million years ago in other places, but on this planet it is quite a new concept.

Free will has to some degree always been available to the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms, but they have had limited free will inside the pattern of their life streams.

It was only when a self reflecting being appeared that the concept of free will took an interesting turn.

Most of us would probably agree that free will is a good thing… but..!!!

It is this ‘but’ that creates our suffering.

Free will is either there or it is not. Anyone who restricts another being’s free will is still expressing free will. Whether the restricted being decides to bow to the pressure, to revolt, to leave the confines of the restriction or even to self destruct, it is still an expression of free will.

It has to be ok!

What I mean is that if I believe that people cannot and should not handle all their free will themselves, then I would invent rules and somehow enforce these rules.

These rules could be: ethical rules, religious rules, social rules, political rules or economic rules.

What we have to understand is that rules are made up!

Everything that is ‘made up’ is not real.

Realise that you, as a being, have been granted free will. It is yours to do with as you want.

Nobody else can remove the fact that you have got total and absolute free will.

You can choose, right now, to wake up and take your life into your own hands.

You can choose to follow the little voice inside without considering any of the voices that continuously sound from the outside.

You can choose to set yourself free.

If you accept that everybody on this planet has got a right to free will, then you understand that you cannot consciously enforce your way of being onto anybody else. And no-one else has got the right to infringe on your ‘free will zone’.

If we allow ourselves to become whole beings then we will discover that we have got a heart.

To some people this may come as a surprise 🙂

We will discover that we actually feel good and gain more self-worth when we do something good for somebody else.

In this state free will becomes an altruistic society of individuals who allow each other to express themselves without rules or norms. Troubled, wounded or handicapped individuals will receive support from caring individuals who understand that they are suffering.

You too can choose to wake up now and allow yourself more and more freedom until you, the being that is looking through your eyes, can stand upright, smiling… knowing that you are choosing… really choosing to be and to do what you do… right now.

Freedom is yours.
