Grow Or Die

If you are not growing, then you are dying. This is an undeniable and inescapable Reality of Life.

Growth does not necessarily mean expansion or enlargement. Growth is a fundamental process of Life. To grow is to renew, refresh, and replace that which has outlived its usefulness with that which revitalizes. To grow is to cycle and incorporate experience, knowledge, wisdom, and substance.

If all aspects of your Self are not growing (Physical, Emotional, Mental, Spiritual, and Expressive/Creative) then the lagging aspect is dying.

Fortunately, unless you are already dead, you are not too far gone.

Tools

Pens, gavels, money, and guns are tools. In and of themselves they are inanimate and unmoving. Each of these things are presumed by many to be objects of power. They are not. Power is a Living Thing and it is an expression of what it is to be a human being experiencing Life here on the Mother Earth; it comes from within us and can never reside in a mere tool.

How sad it is to not know one’s own power.

Many who do not know or fully appreciate their power will brandish such tools recklessly or with malice aforethought in a misguided attempt to control others or to compensate for the power they recognize, either consciously or unconsciously, to be lacking within themselves. It is far more difficult to be the master of oneself than it is to lord over and dominate another. The pages of human history are stained with the bloody ink of despots and fools who could not master themselves. There is no greater challenge than that of Self-mastery.

Claim your power and use your tools wisely.

What Will You Do?…

If you are content with the way things are going for you, if your experience of Life is joyful and fulfilling, then keep doing what it is that you are doing in the way you are doing it.

If, on the other hand, you find yourself swathed in discontent, unhappy and pining for something more, you must first change your attitudes and then change your actions.

Happiness will not just fall on you like a meteor from the heavens.

Freedom?…

True and living Freedom is not anarchy.  It is folly to think that Liberty is in some way independent of Karma or divorced from consequence.  Cause leads inevitably to effect.  Know this.

Tyranny is the one thing not subject to the laws of quantum physics, for tyranny cannot share the same Space and same Time as Freedom.  Do you appreciate the seriousness of this verity?

Learn to recognize the presence of Freedom.  Learn also to recognize its absence.  Counterfeit Freedom is not Freedom at all.

To be Free is to swim comfortably in the waters of Self-Power and Self-Awareness.  Sadly, these waters are unfamiliar territory to so many; this is why the unconversant seek their Power in the waters of another.

To be fully Free is to permit others to swim in their own waters.  This is difficult for far too many.  It is not possible for you to know Freedom in its fullness if, by your actions (or inactions), you deny others of the rights and responsibilities of their own sovereignty.

The shared experience of Freedom is a joy as well as a responsibility.  It must be understood, however, that the experience of Liberty is one of the most intimate interactions a human shall ever know, whether with others or with our Selves.

Freedom requires accountability. Freedom calls for diligence.  Freedom demands maturity and prudence of forethought. Freedom is not a game.

Are you Free?

Courage

To be courageous is to be accepting of discomfort. To be courageous is to be accepting of and comfortable with change. To be courageous is to be vulnerable. Know that it is possible to be courageous while not being brave; the two concepts are not necessarily mutually inclusive.

Be brave when you can. Be courageous always.
