The Freedom Package

If I offered you a freedom package which would require you to sacrifice your happiness and livelihood, would you take it?

What about a 10 year marriage, with endless financial stability, but no emotional fulfilment?

Or a jet setting career which would cost you your marriage and the love of your children?

Would you take freedom if it came at the cost of the people you love or your livelihood?

Think about it, why do the freedoms offered by this modern world come at the cost of something truly important.

Truly think about what is on offer from the modern world we live in right now as freedom.

It’s all tangible.

How can a person ever truly be free when their freedom is linked to external symbols of freedom.

True freedom starts in the mind, and I would even go as far as to argue that true freedom is purely mental. It’s the unlocking of your mental limitations, or your bounds of ignorance. The ability to find out who you are and be who you are, without the imposition of modern day conditioning, or the need to comply.

It’s a process of self-exploration, which requires a journey of failures and successes. These are the only true keys to freedom, building our own set of values, morals and boundaries as we grow. True freedom is the space which allows this growth to take place.

Freedom is not limitation, condition or anything tangible. True freedom therefore cannot be politicised or monopolized.

The modern day concept of freedom has been built upon the condition of external ownership. Yet, ownership, in a world full of brokenness is never truly what it means on paper. Ownership in this world comes at the cost of a third party, a middle man, a broker or entity in the middle, reaping the benefit off your yearning to be free. Its completely abstract from the true meaning of sovereignty.

You see, the concept of freedom has been sold to us as a way of life that is only accessible through financial wealth or tangible assets. Yet, when you look around at those who ‘have it all’, who have followed the systematic ‘yellow brick road’ – you see that these roads never lead to freedom.

They lead to a world full of problems, stresses and limited time.

At some point, the penny drops that the hard work for this ‘freedom package’ comes at the cost of something else, something truly important.

What, you ask?

Well, what about meaningful relationships, family, physical health or an inability to ever truly know who you are?

In a world which has become continuously restricted by state policy, psychological warfare and capitalism, freedom is now a commodity which can be bought and sold on the stock market for the highest bidder.

Its become valuable and with value, comes exploitation. Our quest for modern day freedom has been used to control our decision making, our job choices and even whether we choose to have a family or not.

We spend so much of our lives within a system that is not built to lead us to true freedom that our definition of freedom is completely distorted. It really has nothing to do with anything external.

External freedoms lead us to be co-dependant on ‘things’, ‘people’ and ‘infrastructure’. But once all of this is taken away, once ‘things’ lose their value, infrastructure starts to break down and people lose trust in one another, are you still free?

Think about it, when all has been stripped away and you are left with yourself, are you truly free or has something tangible become an extension of your freedom?

‘Where’s my freedom package REFUND!’ shouts the disillusioned middle class in aisle one!! Ha.

But in all seriousness, this world is in dyer need of innovation. We cant continue to fall into the traps of a system which has us repeating the cycle of generations past.

Ideas are the new currency, and new ideas come from the freedom to create. Spending time in dead end jobs, wrapped up in debt and worried about money doesn’t lead to innovation.

But not all hope is lost, because believe it or not, despite what the government may want you to think, COVID has created a true freedom era, where anything is truly possible and true freedom is at your grasp. But are you ready for that?

Fear and stagnation is the enemy of our freedom and over the past few years, wars, pandemics, and overall brutality has kept many of us in this state. It’s a pit you fall into when you have given up on chasing that burning desire and ambition to keep going. Fear will make you fall in line, rush out of competition or even convince you to work against your own interest.

You see, freedom releases you of all attachment to things, people and places. Its monk living, allowing rather than controlling. True freedom starts in the mind before it manifests in life. What you can see in your minds eye, can be in your reality.

You can have it all. You don’t have to sacrifice. Fulfilment is at your whim if you allow yourself to think for yourself and unlearn the teachings of the past which thrust you into commitments which work against your inner ability to innovate.

Your intuition is your life compass which will lead you away from those decisions which aren’t meant for you and your heart will lead you to what’s for you. But your mind must be truly clear to feel the direction. And yes, I said feel it, not see it.

In this time, allow yourself to witness your attachments and your addictions as the illusions of the last era come tumbling down. People are still bidding for their freedom package as we speak which is making it such a hot commodity, but you don’t have to be one of them because the truth is, attachment is a dying market and I expect it to come crashing down in the near future.

Welcome to the New Age

The biggest understatement of the century has to be this all knowing phrase, ‘the world is changing’.

If you didn’t believe it now, the past five years should have shown you that’s exactly what is happening.

Change.

Everything you thought you knew is being dismantled before your very eyes.

Questioning what you believe and know is simply apart of your everyday. Whilst the loud repetitive world mantras of low resolution thinking keep you from broadening your mind, your perception of what is, continues to evolve.

Do you know why?

Well, lets say it together, the world around you is changing, evolving, shedding of an old way which is no longer serving the interest of the planet or humanity.

We are on our way to a great reckoning between old power structures thriving off separation and the structureless power who want equality. The dismantling of poverty and mass deprivation of resources from all life on the planet will become a priority.

You can’t constantly take from every species on the planet, burn down natural resources and create chaos and think that no form of karmic energy will come back to you. Lets not be silly, we are all responsible for what has taken place on this planet. Our cars, our out of control consumerism, greed and habit of discarding what we cant control.

The planet needs a harmonious humanity to solve some of its biggest problems. This cannot suffice if we continue to label, separate and broaden the gap of understanding and respect between species. There should be a common goal a common direction and at the moment we are still in the phase of waking up.

Like, what if I told you that your body is nothing but a vessel. That every experience you have had on this planet thus far are purposeful and intentional experiences that you came to this planet to learn?

Beyond you is a higher you, a you which is connected to all. Source, Life, Plants, nature, animals?

This level of evolving and thinking is taking us to a place of harmony. Although it may feel like chaos now, it is all happening for the greater betterment of our planet so we can understand our mission, our true soul purpose our calling if you will. There is no denying that this planetary revolution is affecting every species, including the most powerful of them all. Humanity.

But do you know how lucky you are to be in this moment where anything is well and truly possible and despite who you think is in charge, the only person who is truly in charge of your destiny is you?

You can create, fulfil, learn or live out any fantasy or dream that you have had in this moment. Anything you have been putting off or have been afraid of is within your grasp right now in this moment. You cant ignore it. Any urge or pull that is taking you in a new direction, stop putting it off because this is the moment for you to try!

In this time there will be many inventions, innovations, creatives, scholors, philosphers who will come forward to broaden your perspective and educate you on what is possible beyond your limitations.

One thing I have been learning is that everything I wanted before I already had. Within, I have all of the gifts and talents to create the life I want. But living in this physical plane has attached me to culture. This concept that associates me to the physical world be it beauty, race, class, history.  This cultural concept creates an ideology that everything I need is outside of myself.

I’m sorry to tell you but culture has you fooled. It’s not a way to help bring together, it actually separates people into groups based on external features and a history which in many ways can be traumatic or the source of our ignorance.

This concept is repeated from generation to generation and creates this limited way of living and being. Such is the saying, ‘these people don’t do this or these people do that’.

A Culture based on history doesn’t evolve. It stays stuck in the past.

The answers which lie internally will help you evolve. That growing awareness of your inner awareness is a sign of you finding this connection to who you truly are; beyond who you identify as externally is the divine you, connected to source energy.

Now hold on, don’t start to become hostile. By source energy, I mean what you call God, Universe, Source, whatever you want to call this energy source to which we share with the rest of the species on the planet (which has been scientifically proven).

For arguments sake, I will say God/Source.

But as I was saying, many have heard, God/Source has created man in his likeness and throughout every religion and spiritual practice has a way of bringing people inward in search of him. Sitting in prayer, meditation, internally connecting to him/it. Its an individual ritual bringing one inward, shutting out the external world to deepen this connection.

But what man has done over time has conceptualized this notion of connecting to your inner being and made it digestible for the world to comprehend. A world which can only comprehend what it can see, something tangible, external. This made people reject that which they can’t see as a limiting construct.

This New Age we have stepped into has truly got people questioning everything, but instead of being sat confused and letting life happen to you, you have all the information at your fingertips.

We are repeating a cycle the earth goes through every new era, this is nothing new. Your questioning of everything is therefore not weird or strange, its actually a result of the planet evolving and you with it. What it asks of you is instead of trying to externally escape the changes you see, dive inwards. Be open and information and answers will come to you. Shut yourself away from external influences which tell you what is, if internally you know this is not your truth.

Be still, be silent, align with who you truly are and follow your calling. This will lead you to inner knowing, inner happiness.

This time we are in will continue to get interesting, but if you are playing the role you came here to play, you will effortlessly flow with this change.
