Freedom is in our mind

Did you just say you have no choices? No options? Are you feeling caged?

Freedom is in our mind, my friend. Think about it. What is that you are clinging to? That is making you feel trapped. Attitude? Belief? Perception?

People want to be their nicest thriving self. Life doesn’t work that way. Our old behaviours and thinking itself creates obstacles. This plays out over and over. Limiting the range of thought may seem normal,  but such beliefs perpetuate the pattern of settling for our a little lesser, and then some more. Ultimately, we are moving the other way. We desperately need to break away from the past. Move forward and achieve what we are capable of.

Teach your brain that you own it. It must not command you.

Can you not set your mind free? Spread your wings and fly.  Out of the cage. Into the open sky.

You will probably find that the door is always open, and you were never caged. The traps were illusions created by your mind. It was your choice. It is your choice. It will always be your choice. Doubt it and you could still be in the cage. Believe it and you should soar free. It’s in your mind, it’s your choice.

“We are not animals. We have the power of choice.”Stephen Covey

The Right Way

With so many ways in which one can do the same thing, how does one choose the right way, first up? The answer to that is simple. You can, but should you?
I mean, if all those great people – not just, scientists and inventors, but everyone who did anything new – had opted to carry on doing it – right way, straight away – we might not have had anything different in life. And like the stones and rocks, our consciousness would have eventually subsided to doing nothing. Ever.
Fact remains that there in no one method of doing things. Machine operating instructions, aside. And definitely there is no permanently ‘right’ way.
Let’s take the potato for example. Across the world potato is a popular vegetable and definitely cooked in countless different ways. If we have discovered more than one way of cooking potatoes, perhaps there is more than one approach to most, if not all, other things in our life. We enjoy potatoes as fries, chips, boiled or mashed; therefore, ‘variety is the spice of life’. Indeed, if we only ever ate the potato in one style, we may soon lose the joy of the dish and the vegetable.
It would be infinitely more beneficial to think of the enjoyment of doing things, rather than the stressful worries of doing ‘right’. Be open to what other ways you can experience as the right way. Explore the options.
“If you’re not doing something different, you’re not doing anything.” – Sam Phillips
