Freedom...


Freedom...
On the eve of the USA's celebration of freedom,
while harnessing the energies of this powerful astrological time 
 and phenomenal full moon,
let's ask ourselves...

"How/where are we free?"

Just take a moment and feel into your life, 
your body, your mind.
Where is there freedom?
And where are there shackles?

For me, freedom like happiness is an inside job.
 And even if we are physically shackled, 
heaven forbid,
there is no way to shackle the spirit.

It really that boils down to 
freedom from from the mind and fear as master.
Where are we believing thoughts and allowing fear to stop us?

I just got a motorcycle.
I have wanted one for many years, 
and I allowed fear to stop me. 
And I have blamed not getting one, 
on my loved ones fear for my safety.
But the truth is I used them as an excuse to not face my own fear, 
 including the fear of doing something 
 that makes my loved ones upset, or angry with me.

Small awakenings to freedom is the key to a larger expression of freedom.
One of my favorite poems...

START CLOSE IN

Start close in,
don't take the second step
or the third,
start with the first
thing
close in,
the step
you don't want to take.

Start with
the ground
you know,
the pale ground
beneath your feet,
your own
way of starting
the conversation.

Start with your own
question,
give up on other
people's questions,
don't let them
smother something
simple.

To find
another's voice,
follow
your own voice,
wait until
that voice
becomes a 
private ear
listening
to another.

Start right now
take a small step
you can call your own
don't follow
someone else's 
heroics, be humble
and focused,
start close in,
don't mistake
that other
for your own.

Start close in,
don't take
the second step
or the third,
start with the first
thing
close in,
the step
you don't want to take.

With love the door is open...
