“I know but one freedom and that is freedom of the mind.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery, French writer, poet, and journalist
What does being free mean to you? Have you ever imagined what your life might be like with more and more restrictions? I feel fortunate living here in the United States where freedom to make choices has been a significant way of life. Yes, I realize that this can change at any time and life can be more restrictive. I’m also aware that there is suffering and poverty here. There are people who would like to restrict many of our external freedoms like voting and health choices for example. Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s quote reconfirms that freedom of the mind is one freedom that won’t change. What we believe and how we see the world is ours and ours alone.
I choose to see the world through the lens of love and abundance! Abundance is more than financial wealth. I look around and see so much beauty; I see loving relationships with family and friends; I have shelter and food; I feel the sunshine on my face; I smell the amazing fragrance of flowers; I hear birds singing; I choose what I believe, write, and speak; I love and know that I’m loved; I’m open and willing to change; and I’m grateful. My life is abundant and I know that many of you feel the same way! Esther Hicks, American inspirational speaker and author reminds us that, “The fastest way to bring more wonderful examples of abundance into your personal experience is to take constant notice of the wonderful things that are already there.” Imagine how life experiences might change if we view life through the wondrous and magical things that are already here! What else might be waiting for us if we only shift our perspective?
How often do we limit or restrict our ability to receive more abundance in our life based on our beliefs? Nelson Mandela, South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader, and philanthropist said, “ For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” There are many reasons to lose yourself in what’s not working; however, to choose to live life abundantly is another way! Remember, when you change others around you will too. Individual freedom is important but respecting and enhancing the freedom of others is another way to live. Do you feel free to BE abundant? What are you willing to change?
I’m sending each of you love beyond all measure and hope your week will be wondrous and filled with magic and miracles!
