Have you ever noticed that most of our struggle in life is against ourselves? Against our own thoughts and feelings that cause us to take actions that don’t really make us happy?
When we were born into life, anything is possible. For each one of us. And then life happens. Our very well-intentioned family, and society, teaches us to follow the “rules” that they believe to be the best for us to survive and get ahead in life. Only, very rarely will their rules be in line with our intuitive Truth – in other words who we really are on the inside, our original view of life. So we learn to make our own view wrong, that little knowing voice inside of us, and we learn to play it safe, to avoid risk, and especially to avoid the risk of potentially looking foolish. And then we teach that to our children!
I invite you to step into the world of Freedom by Example.
What would it be like if all children were raised in households in which they were encouraged to be fully themselves, without fear? What if, even if their parents really didn’t understand them, they could honor them as intuitive beings with an inner knowing of how life works for them? What if there were no “right” or “wrong” personality, behaviors, or career paths dictated to us? Imagine the freedom for future generations!
How do we get there? By example. It starts with a world of parents who are living full out as who they truly are –not who they think they should be, or some tidied up, censored version of themselves – and parents following their dreams, both giving and taking care of themselves, and setting that example for future generations.
Our community, Freedom by Example, is doing this in two ways:
1) We promise to personally live full out, and put our True Self out there in life and in business – even when this means taking big risks – including risking who we have known ourselves to be, regularly, to become more of who we truly are. We also give others permission to do the same.
2) We support budding entrepreneurs in developing countries through microloans (http://www.kiva.org/team/freedom_by_example) which allow them to live full out, provide for their families, and teach them how to do the same.
I invite you to join our movement by taking on one of the above commitments as well – or both! Never doubt that a group of committed citizens can change the world!
