In recent years I have become intrigued with the
American Revolution and the idea of Liberty that
is described in The Declaration of Independence.
Of course I was taught all about this stuff back in
elementary school, but it wasn’t until I was an adult
that I began to understand just how monumental
“The War For Independence” really was.
The idea of freedom that America was meant to
stand for was like nothing else experienced in
modern Western history.
Some might say that we’ve lost sight of this idea,
and in a very insidious way have slowly submitted
our precious liberty in exchange for the less evolved
concepts of safety and security.
Personally, I’m just grateful to be playing a very
small role in this entire experiment and drama called
And that is what I will leave you with today.
Regardless of your political convictions I invite you
to experience and share gratitude today.
Mankind has evolved greatly in the way of personal
freedoms and liberty. The floodgates have been
opened and we’ve experienced what a free people are
capable of, both good and bad.
We’ve got a long way to go. Especially with regards
to personal responsibility and respecting the life and
liberty of other people and cultures.
But be thankful.
We can still think, speak, share and protest with relative
freedom from oppression and tyranny unlike any culture
in modern history. (although this is slowly fading too)
Be thankful and participate.
Take advantage of your freedom while you have it.
(and avoid taking it for granted like so many Americans)
Read important books, engage in important conversations
and explore important ideas.
Free your body from repressed emotion, depressed
breathing, tension and chaotic-conditioned thinking.
Choose to LIVE FREE, in your mind and body.
Otherwise, it is as YOU’RE ALREADY DEAD.
Growing Stronger Together,
