To be free…

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

[Nelson Mandela]

To be Free

Freedom is an expression of mind, emotion and sometimes physicality.

When you feel it, do not stifle it.

Being free to think whatever comes to mind, to strategise those thoughts toward a goal, or to allow them to ramble uncontrolled.

To speak your mind, to have free speech… and to remember that everybody else has that same right, and be open to their views and paradigms, as you need to see your own views are mere paradigms from your experiences.

To act, as yourself and with others, to pursue a higher level of experiential knowledge.

To breathe…

Freedom is the journey, not the end game.

Freedom comes with many restrictions, limitations, or consequences.

To be free, to say what you want, do what you want, when you want, how you want … Sounds great, yeah?

But what if that conflicts with other’s free speech or action?

True freedom can not lie at an individual level, it needs to be a collective ideal, where free actions are performed in harmony with the collective.

“All actions have an equal and opposite reaction” (Newton).

The freedom of a hunter to kill his prey, is contrasted by that prey’s loss of all life’s options.

Doesn’t sound like freedom to me…

Rather than striving for Freedom, the end game should be Happiness and tolerance.

Success through Happiness in this recent post from Richard Branson explains it quite well.

Do you like Jazz ?

I sincerely hope this post will evoke the right responses, for genuine reasons.

The link below is for a phenomenal young UK Jazz guitarist whose playing has received great acclaim from playing in UK, Europe, South Africa, Malaysia and USA.

Now in his final semester for a Masters degree at Manhattan School of Music, he needs some help to complete the course, as 2017 was not kind to his health.

In his own words.

 

If anyone reading this post feels genuinely willing to help us ensure he can complete his time, all offers would be very gratefully received.  Thank you.

 

‘brilliant’

A word of many meanings, with as many synonyms.

brilliant‘ can be used to describe something as small as a glistening dewdrop on a tiny daisy in the fresh morning sun, or to an idea realised, and now in use on 30% of websites globally.

Where the dewdrop provides the essential life giving force to that daisy, so WordPress enables the creative life force to flow between millions of people, each sharing their experiences and expression of knowledge.

May brilliant things forever cause intrigue and wonder.
