FREEDOM. DO YOU REALLY WANT IT?
All the carefully detailed plans people make for the future, I no longer have any interest in the activity. I won't go as far as to say that the activity is foolish, I wouldn't want to offend anyone. But I will say it is a prison of our own making if we go that route. There is no respect of freedom or spontaneity involved in it. Not really. We do such damage to the wild and unpredictable beautiful dream that brought us here while we are so caught up in trying to map out the future. And if we can be honest about it, it all is just an attempt at creating a security for ourselves that does not exist. In the process, we disregard the moment and all that is happening, in ways we can't even begin to fathom. We are left taking the bounty of the gift and somehow spinning it in order to turn it into our own little self serving over indulgent adventures in missing the point.
And all the while, something better, something more inclusive, something more gracious, more generous, travels alongside us inviting us to awaken and allow the dream to reframe it all for us so that we can join in on the renewal....the retrieving of what we all have lost with regard to our humanity.
