Celebrating Independence Day?
The Honoring of Freedom?
What does Freedom mean to you?
Many times we feel constricted and limited by the circumstances we find ourselves subjected to, not liking, not feeling having a choice with, oppressed by people, society, culture,belief in limited resources, limited opportunity, limited Freedom........ Some individuals find certain structures for operating in life causes lack of freedom , yet when these individuals receive reprieve from these constructs get lost,look for someone or something to give them a clue of what to do, how to do it, why to do it, grasping for a form, a reference point, give in to nothingness, cling to addictions, become numb or bored stiff, yet offer up a container for experience and again plunge into anger at restrictions. Can you operate outside of constructs constructively? Can we need a reference point to operate yet not feel limited because of the reference point? Is Freedom an Illusion leading us to believe in a lack of Freedom allowing a method of control? Is it a concept ,an object, a state of mind, a concrete experience?Is it definable?Can you posses it? Can it be experienced within the confines of our human body, human experience? Our collective community?......
The confusion of our True identity seems a conflicting battle between unlimited consciousness to challenged human body with a destined program of existence.
How do you think Freedom works in this Universe? Does my freedom of choice impinge upon your Freedom of Choice? Does ownership,possession,rights inhibit full expression and experience to those not in ownership, possession or right of such "item","object","essence"? If my path of life is radically different from your path of life have either of us lost our Freedoms? How is Freedom universally measured? How is it Humanly measured? Can there be a collective agreement of Freedom? If I am content operating within specific constructs creating the experiences I choose, yet you are not comfortable with the constructs, yet the constructs are necessary for the participation in a specific community, is there a lack of Freedom? Does Freedom come with a cost, of lives, resources, societies,beliefs,opportunities? Is that truly Freedom? And for whom? If no Human agreed to give and sacrifice to the nobility, honor, fight for the Concept of Freedom would all War cease? Does War exist in the name of Freedom? If we chose to not appose anything is that Freedom? How do we pay "justice" to those who have given for the continuation of allowing others the ability to have Freedom?
Does anything Mean, anything, or what we think it Means or is Meaning Fleeting from construct to construct with Freedom being defined within the construct or because of it?
Somehow, I think this ended up being a Ramble Blog rather than a Flicker Blog,
Did I exercise Freedom?
Hope you enjoy the Fourth of July in whatever way you define,reference,participate or not.......Happy Independence! within whatever restrictions you are currently experiencing
