The Basis of Your Life is Absolute Freedom
You were bring with an innate knowledge that you do create your own reality. And, in fact, that knowledge is so basic within you that when someone attempts to thwart your own creation, you feel an immediate discord within yourself. You were born knowing that you are the creator of your own reality, and although that desire to do so pulsed within you a powerful way, when you began to integrate into your society, you began to accept much of the same picture that other held of the way your life should unfold. But still, within you today lives the knowledge that you are the creator of your own life experience, and that ultimately the creation of your life experience is absolutely and only up to you.
You have never enjoyed someone else telling you what to do. You have never enjoyed being dissuaded from your own powerful impulses. But over time, with enough pressure from those who surround you who seemed convinced that their practised way was more valid than your way (and, therefore ultimately better), you gradually began to release your determination to guide your own life. You often found it easier just to adapt to their ideas of what was best for you rather than trying to figure it out for yourself. But in all this adapting to your society’s attempt to make you fit in, and in your own attempt to find less trouble, you have unwittingly relinquished your most basic foundation, your oral and absolute freedom to create.
You have not given up this freedom easily, however, and, in fact you can never truly release it, for it exists as the most basic tenet of your very being. Still, in your attempt to release it for the sake of getting along, or in your hopeless regulation that you have no other choice than to give up your powerful right to choose, you have gone crossway to your natural current, and contrary to your very soul.
