Daily Dose for the Soul

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.

  1. Our soul cries out for her own freedom. This cry is the foundation of resiliency in adversity and of creative expression. At the same time, as you well stated, we compromise away some degree of self-determination for the benefit of societal acceptance and comity. This tension manifests itself in disease, depression, and perverse misreadings of how we should best move forward with our lives. We are only fully aware when freedom from the tension, but of course this has the effect of setting us apart and being condemned or at least misperceived. The fully aware person is an outlaw. He is feared and hated. This seems to be the inevitable price for the soul to be at rest.

      Let life happen to you — Rainer Maria Rilke told a Young poet, Franz Xaver Kappus when he expressed his doubts about his poetry to Rainer in a letter. I agree with you completely.

    We all want to be in total control but we have to learn how to resist our selfish impulses for the benefit of others.

      You live fully invested in the present as opposed to anticipating a coming future which you may overlook, or overly examining a misremembered past. You accept other. Letting go is another form of acceptance. You are not so much giving up as you are allowing things – yourself, mainly – to naturally take their course. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      We create our own realities with every single thought, every word we speak, every action, or deed. We also create a reality because of our mind, the way we were influenced from birth, but that was also greatly influenced by our parents, siblings, our teachers once at school, our friends. Glad you liked it. Thank you for stopping by.

    Freedom is personal and huge. It’s a corporate deal, too, though many groups seek to control rather than encourage freedom. I’m glad you write so clearly and importantly here about self-choosing being close to the center of the human spirit.

      The human spirit includes our intellect, emotions, fears, passions, and creativity. In the models of Daniel A. Helminiak and Bernard Lonergan, human spirit is considered to be the mental functions of awareness, insight, understanding, judgement and other reasoning powers.
